Modern Guitar Lessons

Danilo Ricciardiello is an eclectic guitarist and passionate teacher with a creative and dynamic approach across a vast range of music styles.

Dani teaches in his music studio situated in a converted warehouse in South East London (Sydenham SE26) where he also records and makes music productions. The studio location makes pretty easy to travel to and from all parts of London since it's just outside the overground station. Dani teaches in different parts of London too (Blackheath Conservatoire, Greenwich Music School).

From June 2019, Dani is also an Official RockSchool Grade Examiner.

He has been teaching for years, worked with students of different ages and musical styles. His lessons are intended to develop skills as improvisation, performance, theory, reading, technique and to study in deep different styles such as blues, rock, jazz, pop, expanding student own potentiality. He helps students through their grades with international exam boards (Trinity College London; RockSchool; RGT).

Also, he regularly makes lessons on Skype. So, in case you live too far, all you need is a pc with a webcam.

His teaching philosophy is that learning music should be an inspiring, motivating, fun and exciting experience. The lessons are focused on each student that should find out and follow his own natural predisposition to reach his goals and the mission of a teacher is always to help the student to do that.

Feel free to contact Dani for any question.



He started studying classical guitar when he was eleven years old and, after few years, the study of modern music such as blues, rock and jazz, totally captured him. During these years he gained a deep knowledge of these styles studying under the guidance of the well-known Italian teacher, composer and arranger Giancarlo Perna with whom he also studied arranging and composing. The love and devotion for music took him to New York City where he spent few months playing for local artists and attending lessons with some of the top international players and teachers (Jonathan Kreisberg, Adam Rogers).

As a session musician, Dani played in different bands and for different kinds of artist in studio and at many venues. In 2015, holding a BMus in Jazz Guitar from the Conservatory of Music San Pietro a Majella, he decided to move to London where he also works as a session musician and composer, collaborating with studios based in London and in the States to write music for movie trailers and other music productions.

Dani deeply enjoys teaching students of all ages and different styles, doing guitar masterclasses regarding his favourite music genres and writing arrangements for his band classes. He is always committed to share the passion for the guitar.
