I`m an eclectic music teacher, pianist, composer, orchestra/choir conductor, music researcher and astrophysics graduate, able to inspire pupils and get the best out of them. I strongly believe that music is a creative process at the intersection of art and science. Thus, I have developed a personal interdisciplinary approach towards music teaching, which integrates the training of proper musical notions, along with elements of science and philosophy, in order to shape well-rounded musicians.


I have been teaching piano/music theory/composition/music history privately for over 10 years. I have experience with pupils at all levels, from beginner to degree. I have also helped students prepare for exams (KS1-4, GCSE, A, and degree levels). I can teach basic principles of music such as melody, beat and tempo as well as advanced theories like phenomenology of music, dodecaphony or spectralism. When I was at conservatoires, I lectured piano and music theory to undergraduates, and led seminars in composition for postgraduates.

As a pianist, I have given recitals, won several piano competitions, and worked as accompanist with singers. As a conductor, I have led the orchestra/choir of the Conservatoire of Frosinone (Italy), and led small contemporary ensembles. As a composer, I have a long experience creating orchestral/electronic concert music. Also, I compose video game music, and am now working on a large RPG project.
