About the lesson
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.

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) REEL: (concealed information)
Perfect! Great at tailoring his lessons to your needs and very good at understanding what you are interested in even if you don't have the right musical vocabulary to describe it.
- Antonio's response : Josh has extended knowledge on many aspects of guitar, and he wants to explore more techniques or go deeper on the basics and he is ready to step out of his comfort zone to do it. He's precise and has initiative, which makes tutoring much more effective.
Perfect! I definitely recommend Antonio as a guitar teacher! I have been really improving since I started with him few months ago. Since Co-VID we do pour lessons with Zoom! Best teacher for classical guitar and music theory. He also speaks French
- Antonio's response : Very quick learner. If you study a little bit daily, you'll be playing wonderfully in very brief time.
Perfect! Antonio clearly has an expansive knowledge of the guitar within various styles, and approaches his teaching in a calm, encouraging way. Great lessons.
- Antonio's response : Sonny has a strong will and he plays very well for being a self-taught student. He will surely refine his technique to perfection in a few weeks and explore the full potential he has.

I totally recommend Antonio. He is an amazing guitar player and a very patient and encouraging teacher.
Antonio e' un valido musicista ed un ottimo tutor, lo raccomando agli studenti per la sua professionalita',competenze musicali e grande passione per il suo lavoro.
I've known and have been working with Antonio for several years now. Music was his first love, and he never let go of it since tender age. Over the years, alongside developing guitar skills and passion for music on broader scale, he matured a keen interest in education which led him to teach at prestigious institutions with great success. With Antonio as teacher, you're securing someone able to identify your musical needs, develop a personalised way to improve your skills, and a great pal to share freely your love for music.
Antonio is an incredibly versatile guitar and music tutor. His knowledge of music is expansive, ranging from classical to jazz to rock, as well as composition and improv. He's an excellent teacher, who shows great care for his students, and is very adaptable in his teaching methods depending on the needs/abilities of the students. His calm and chilled out manner are also very conducive to learning. He's an excellent teacher (and musician!) overall and I highly recommend him.
