Simone - Adamsdown - Italian

Methodology

Hello! I am an Italian music teacher, living in Cardiff since 2013. I am very interested in history, art, good food and always open to meet enthusiastic and interesting people.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

My main subject is music, and I love to teach violin and viola. I obtained a PhD in Music Performance at Cardiff University. I specialise in Historical Performance Practice (Baroque music) but I can certainly teach classical and modern music. As my first language is Italian, I also like to teach the Italian language and Italian culture.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

2013 – 2017 Cardiff University - School of Music (UK): PhD in Music Performance
2009 – 2010 Conservatorium van Amsterdam (Nederlands): Bachelor in Early Music (barokviool)
2007 – 2008 Conservatorio "B. Maderna", Cesena (Italy): Diploma in Violin
2006 – 2008: Diploma in Chamber Music (Three-year course), Accademia Internazionale Pianistica "Incontri col Maestro". Chamber Music
2006 – 2007 Conservatorio "B. Maderna", Cesena (Italy): Academic Diploma in "Musical disciplines" (Viola and chamber music)
2005 – 2006 Conservatorio "G. Verdi", Ravenna (Italy): Diploma in Viola

- How much do you charge?

Prices are shown above. Travel arrangements can be discussed. I have a car so I can travel quite easily, but it is complicated to travel during rush hour (3.30-6pm).
I can also provide lessons that are shorter than an hour [£15 for 30 minutes, £20: 45 minutes]

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach at my home in Cardiff (Splott, Adamsdown, Roath). I can also travel to Caerphilly and Newport, but travel time and expenses should be negotiated beforehand.

- When are you available?

As I am a freelance musician and researcher, my schedule is flexible, but I generally teach on Tuesdays and on Saturdays. Please contact me to discuss options.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I have good experience with adults, especially with teaching the Italian language. With music, I like teaching both adults and children.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am happy to prepare students for ABRSM music exams, although the foundation of our lessons will always be to develop healthy playing habits, supported by a solid technique and awareness of style and historical context.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I believe that learning a new language and playing a musical instrument are two expressions of the same basic human need to communicate our inner feelings and thoughts to the world around us.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am experienced teaching children and adults. I love to teach chamber music to small groups, introducing my pupils to new repertoire and discovering new music together. I also have experience with pop and rock music.

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

I have an up-to-date DBS Certificate.
