I have performed in Italy, Spain, France, Turkey, the UK and USA in several international music festivals, including the "Stagione Internazionale della Chitarra" di Lodi (Italy), the Big Guitar Weekend in Glasgow, the Guitar Master series in Brighton and the Tolmen International Guitar Festival in Cornwall.

I have been awarded various first prizes in International competitions, including the inaugural "Scottish International Guitar Competition" at the Glasgow Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the Governors' Recital Prize for Strings of RCS, the "Blas Sanchez" competition in Spain, the "Città di Seveso", the "Rocco Perugini" and the “Riviera Etrusca” competitions in Italy. In 2012 I was awarded the second prize in the renowned International Seville Guitar Competition (Spain) and the "Concours guitare espagnol" in Albi (France). Moreover, as a composer, in 2013 I won the "World Guitar Composition Competition" in Serbia.
Internationally acclaimed soloists and ensembles including Andrea Dieci, Marta Dolzadelli, Duo Ricci-Colonna, Juliane Bergemann has performed my music in Italy and abroad.

In 2013 Nimbus Label and RCS published my debut album "Energico" with music of Paganini, Llobet, Boyle and Takemitsu. I have also made ​​recordings for Dynamic records, Naxos and Radio of Las Palmas.

I began my teaching career in 2005. I worked with students of different ages and of different levels of music experience. I have always been very active in teaching and keen to share music with people. I worked in public schools and private academies, as well as in private courses and master-classes.

With regards to my experience as music teacher for children, I think it would be particularly significant my working experience in the “Progetto Pepita” project (part of the initiative “Sistema Italia”).
The orchestra Pepita is aimed at helping children from families in difficult financial conditions and to encourage integration between diverse ranges of cultural backgrounds, through the universal language of music. Pepita' Youth Orchestra has joined the Italian project "Sistema delle Orchestre e dei Cori Giovanili" created by the Maestro Claudio Abbado and already performed in prestigious international theatres.
Moreover, in 2012 and 2013 I taught in a public school in Milan as guitar teacher to students from 11 to 15 years old.
During my career, I had the opportunity to extensively work with more advanced students. Several of my students have successfully passed the exams and obtained the final diploma in Italian Conservatories.
Over the last few years I have been teacher and director in some summer schools and courses.
In particular, since 2009 I have attended as a director and teacher to the annual course “Corso Estivo Città di Mezzago” , which saw the participation of a total of more than 200 students in five years. Since 2010 I am Artistic Director and teacher of the Festival Corde d'Autunno. Corde d'Autunno has around 100 students of different levels every year, coming from different part of Italy. Given this success, the courses of the Festival are recognized by the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR).
I also teach in the course "Suono, Chitarra e Natura" alongside Pavel Steidl, Andrea Dieci and Massimo Lonardi and I am visitor teacher in the Agnadello public academy.
In 2015 I was assistant in the Summer Guitar Course of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
