Riccardo - Dulwich Village - Organ

Methodology

I've got very few spaces for highly committed students who want to learn in a very professional way.
I provide a very high standard of teaching, combined with a friendly approach.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Organ and Piano, and if necessary Theory and Aural. My lessons also provide elements of General Musicianship.
I also teach Italian Opera diction for singers.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Piano degree (BMus equivalent), Conservatoire of Terni (Italy) - highest marks
Organ and Organ Composition degree (BMus equivalent), Conservatoire of Perugia (Italy) - highest marks
Repetiteur Diploma, Teatro Lirico Sperimentale, Spoleto (Italy)
Postgraduate in Organ Performance, Royal Academy of Music, London - Distinction with DipRAM award

Please contact me if you want to view my full CV

- How much do you charge?

I do not charge an hourly rate, as my lessons usually last more than an hour (and up to two, if necessary).
The rates are £40 for instrumental lesson and £35 for diction lessons.

- Where do you teach?

I generally teach in St Barnabas Church, Dulwich (SE21). I can travel to the student's house in the areas of Dulwich, Herne Hill, West Norwood, Brixton, Camberwell, Denmark Hill, Peckham.

- When are you available?

My teaching times are flexible, with a preference for Mondays and Saturdays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Students from the age of 10, teenagers and adults are more than welcome. A level of around Grade 3+ would be desirable, although it is not necessary.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I primarily aim to develop the student's potential in relation to the student's needs, aspirations and practise time availability.
Upon request I will prepare him/her for ABRSM grade exams.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I believe very strongly that a student should learn to play in a healthy way, in order to be able to enjoy the music-making for a lifetime.
Be aware that the best results are achieved with lots of perseverance, self-sacrifice and at the cost of many hours of very focused practising.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching for 15 years, have experience with young and adult students, having taught also in the Conservatoire in Terni (Repetiteur, 2002), King's College University of London (Organ on behalf of Royal Academy of Music, 2006) and am currently teaching at Alleyn's Junior School in Dulwich (since 2006).

My personal experience led me to develop a special attention to particular aspects of performance practice, such as correct technical approach to the instrument, posture and body awareness.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, I had it done both at Alleyn's Junior School and at St Barnabas Church.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Piano:
M. G. Sabatini, F. Mastroianni, M. T. Gregorini (in Italy)

Organ:
C. Brizi, W. Van De Pol, (In Italy)
D. Titterington, S. Landale, N. Kynaston (in UK)

Repetiteur:
R. Nicolosi, R. Kettelson, E. Ferrari, M. Boemi (in Italy)

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Incorporated Society of Musicians.
