Finger-style guitar in London lessons, 20 years of classical and jazz experience.

Methodology

Coming from the Italian-Spanish classical music background, I will begin with teaching proper finger-style (classic position) and pickup style in order to be then versatile on any kind of guitar. I use an exercise book which covers every technique (Rest-stroke, arpeggios, legatos, triads, etc), which also helps basic reading knowledge. Theory wise, I can then adapt the program to what the student requires, going towards jazz (modal music, keyboard visualisation, ear training, improvisation) or we can proceed towards a more classical program (scales, arpeggios and music reading/writing). We can discuss about composition, working with other instruments, guitar duets, music production, electronic music, studio recording, etc. If the student wants to learn just pop/rock guitar, we can go straight to learning chords (basic voicing to more interesting ones) and performing popular tunes with the right hands/body position.

Background

I am a music composer and performer, I studied 8 years Classic Music in Italy (conservatory) and then 6-7 years of Jazz theory. I attended masterclasses by Michel Camillo, Stefano Bollani, Hernacio Hernandez, Barclays summer courses and taught guitar in Italy since I was 16. Having a background in Cinema I also compose for indie films. I produced my first album in Italy in 2003 (Aiguille, Portrait) distributing 20k copies then I have been the co-creator of the Band "Flying Tailor", and now teaching in London part time, in a few different schools and working on the new band project Nàca ((concealed information)
