I am a young and motivated woodwind instrumentalist. I started playing at very young age and since the very beginning of my career I had the honor of touring with many prestigious woodwind orchestras and to perform all around Europe in venues like the Palau De La Musica in Valencia (Spain), The Music Certament of Kerkrade (Netherlands) and many others. I graduated from Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA) where I had the opportunity to study with some of the masters of jazz music as Ed Tomassi, Dave Santoro, Jim Odgren and complete my education in music tecnology and audio engineering.
My teaching experience started in 2009 for a few private music schools. Right after I graduated from Conservatory I taught in schools that focused on classical studies specificly designed for young students interested in pursuing a career in orchestral and enseble playing. In 2010 I joined the team of faculties at Magicamusica where I learned about innovative propaedeutic methods used in modern teaching.
My teaching approch is to offer a fully personalized course for each individual students, encouraging them to explore the instrument while understanding solid technical basis. My course is usually divided in 3 phases: 1 - Understanding the instrument (breathing, embochure, basic fingering) 2- Practice routine, scales and arpeggios, developing good instrumental tecnique using classical books. 3- Jazz and instrumental Improvisation.
I love to transmit to my students the passion that led me into music, without that it would have been impossible to pursuing my career in the first place. I encourage them to listen and explore different style of music and experiment with improvvisation, having fun and learning at the same time.
