Piano tutor/composer with fifteen year experience in the United States and Italy

Methodology

My private lessons usually focus on technique and repertoire, but also on musicianship, ear training, improvisation, and theory. I have a classical background, but I play and teach different styles as well (contemporary, pop, etc.), and each program can be tailored specifically for every student.

Experience


Hello, my name is Laura Loriga, and I am a classically trained pianist, composer, performer, and touring musician (as pianist and singer), with a twelve year experience in the Unites States (six years in California, five years in New York) and Europe. I have been a piano teacher for the past eight years, with students of all ages (6 to 70) and abilities. I recently moved to London, and I am looking forward to start teaching here as well.

My private lessons usually focus on technique and repertoire, but also on musicianship, ear training, improvisation, and theory. I have a classical background, but I play and teach different styles as well (contemporary, pop, etc.), and each program can be tailored specifically for every student.

My qualifications:
- Ten years of classical training in Bologna, Italy (with teacher Claudia Cesari).
- Voice lessons with singer Janis Brenner (choreography teacher at Julliard School, New York)
- Hundreds of performances in venues, theaters, festivals, on tv and radio, with my main project (Mimes of Wine), as well as with a range of collaborations, with relative press and reviews.
- Seven years of composing collaborations for studio records and film scoring, among which those with Leonardo de Bernardini and Andrea Morricone (and current contract with Accidental Entertainment, music licensing and synchronization company based in Los Angeles).

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to have references or more information.
I would be very happy to hear from you.
Thank you!
