I have been giving lessons for more than 10 years.
I am a Guitarist, composer and theremin player.
I have a degree in Jazz arrangement and I have been playing in bands for 25 years.
All my students love my friendly and enjoyable approach to the music.
Matteo Ciminari is an italian composer, guitarist and theremin player.
His musical approach goes beyond the genres and in his compositions he uses and reworks many styles that converge in his own language.
His instrumental skills allow him to move easily around jazz, blues, contemporary and avant-garde music always remembering that one important thing in music (and in life) is have fun and improve ourselves.
His academic studies started when he was 9, attending violin lessons and finished once graduated in “Arrangement and composition for jazz ensembles” at the “G.B.Pergolesi” Conservatory in Fermo (Italy), with a Master thesis which analyzes the score (and not only) of the avant-garde jazz album “Out to Lunch” by Eric Dolphy.
His anti-academic studies began when he was born and will never end!
He has had his music played on italian tv channel La7 and Rai Radio3.
With his band “I’M ANITa” He won several awards for music and soundtracks.

“Audience Award” at Chicco Bettinardi National Award - Piacenza (Italy)
“Harlock Award” at Rimusicazioni film festival 4ff - Bolzano (Italy)
“First Prize” at "Moviemento", festival of sound creations for images - Napoli (Italy)
Finalist at “Strade del Cinema”, international festival of silent films with live music - Aosta (Italy)
An exceptional guitar player and tutor!! I've learnt more in a couple of months with Matteo than I did in a year with my last tutor. All aspects of my guitar playing has improved, especially technique. Would recommend to anyone !
I have been bringing my daughter age 10 to Matteo now for a number of months.
Matteo’s lessons are fun, informative, balanced between necessary theory and joyful playing to conquer each piece as he introduces them.
His teaching style is calm, warm, relaxed and above all else very clear and never rushed making no assumptions about the student’s playing or learning ability.
There is always time to listen to comments or concerns and even to listen to any piece of music the student may have picked up in between lessons which they may like to learn.
Theory is given a step by step approach with all the patience required to make sure there is an understanding of the lesson content.
Homework is also treated with the same balance of practicing the playing of a piece whilst backed up with the drills of scales or learning the music notation of the melody. Any improvement from a previous lesson, no matter how small, through homework is greeted with praise and further encouragement.
Matteo’s obvious wide knowledge of music and styles of playing keep younger students especially interested and engaged with contemporary examples but also cleverly introducing older popular music which open the way forward to experience progress quickly and want more!
I have had a fair few lessons with Matteo so far after finding him on another site and it was completely worth it. He is a very good teacher able to teach at any level, and if you don't know your theory like I didn't he will surely get you up to speed in no time! Very friendly teacher and great musician, an exceptional choice for anyone looking to get better with their guitar. Joe - 24
