TEACHER

I gave my first guitar lesson when I was fourteen: I’ve always considered teaching a passion, a pleasure as well as a serious job. After ten years spent on teaching students of different age, skills and ambitions I structured a solid learning method that will guarantee results.

My teaching career, combined with many professional experiences in the music industry and a broad educational background (Major Degree in Contemporary and Rock Guitar, further studies in Composition, Orchestration, Classical Guitar, Piano and Music Production) gives me what it takes to be a well-rounded musician.

I also give private and skype lessons from my own studio in Gallarate.

Tell me about this “skype lesson” thing…

I offer a first 30-minutes lesson as a trial to check everything is working (audio/video and internet connection). I can structure a custom program based on your needs and interests with the comfort of sitting at home and a high flexible lessons schedule. You can purchase either a single lesson or a 4-lesson pack.
