Este curso es para estudiantes de piano de nivel principiante. Las clases son adaptadas a las habilidades y estilos de aprendizaje de cada estudiante haciendo énfasis en desarrollo de teoría musical para facilitar el progreso en el futuro.
I like to invest time in knowing my students' personality to better recognize their motivations. Then I assess their theoretical knowledge and technical ability and design lesson plans that adapt to their musical abilities, motivations, and individual learning styles. I believe it is essential to understand what each student finds to be engaging and interesting such as specific songs, bands, or music styles, and then use those elements to keep them interested in learning.
Lessons in person:
Teacher's Studio 148 Fairholme Ave, Toronto ON, M6B 2X2
Classes will be tailored to the students' expectations, levels, goals and tastes. Broadly speaking, they will involve:
- Repertoire chosen from classics to jazz
- Solfège: spoken, sung and rhythmical
- Sight reading
- General music theory
- Basics of improvisation
Il corso verrà strutturato a seconda delle aspettative, livelli, obiettivi e gusti degli studenti. In linea generale, il corso affronterà elementi quali:
- Repertorio scelto dal classico al jazz
- Solfeggio: parlato,cantato,ritmico
- Prima vista
- Teoria musicale generale
I majored in jazz piano, on top of having a solid classical music basis. Learning tunes by ear, improvising, composing your own songs are also possible for whoever needs a more heterogeneous approach to music lessons.
Program is not fixed as it is decided ad hoc for each student. More info upon contact.

You can't play what you can't hear!
I have been teaching music in private lessons, music schools and at university level since 2012 and I always start working with the student's musical ear, at any level.
I obtained a Master's Degree in Jazz Music in Milan, and an Early Music Recorder Diploma at Pavia's Conservatory. I currently play in several bands ranging from Jazz to Tango, from Early music to Gipsy.
I also wrote several music books (available on amazon.com).
