The content of each lesson is adapted to each student's age, skills and needs.
For young beginners (3-5 years old), lessons are an introduction to music, teaching children the fundamentals of rhythm, pitch and keyboard skills through games and musical activities.
For older students, piano lessons are usually divided between exercises and studies to work on specific technical difficulties, core pieces from composers from the baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary periods to gain a broad knowledge of all music history, and an approach to music theory based on aural training, improvisation and compositional techniques.
Students preparing the ABRSM grade examinations will also have access to regular workshops
where they can rehearse repertoire pieces in front of others.
Composition classes are tailored to each student's level and skills, and can range from classical harmony, orchestration, use of composition and notation softwares such as Sibelius and Logic Pro and composition for film and media.
I am a franco-italian musician, composer and audio-visual artist.
Fascinated from an early age by the relationship between music and other forms of art to create emotions, I graduated in classical piano from the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia of Rome, and later moved to Berlin to work for film composer and visual artist Henning Lohner from Hans Zimmer's Remote Control Productions, arranging and recording music for feature films and German television, and participating in concerts and masterclasses at the Konzerthaus, the Martin-Gropius Bau, the Berlin Academy of Arts and the University of the Arts in Zurich.
Since 2012, I have been living and working in London, where I completed a Master of Music in Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths College, with a research focus on how the perception of motion in sounds and paintings can transmit emotions.
In recent years, my music has been commissioned by the United Nations University, Leighton House Museum, the Museum of Oriental Art of Turin, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and TEDx.
As a pianist, I have been collaborating with world-renowned musicians, including vibraphonist David Friedman and composer Matthias Sayer, recording in prestigious studios in Germany and in the UK and performing with the Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg.
