Personal Description:

I am an Italian composer, conductor, orchestrator and pianist based in London with an extensive experience in teaching at all levels, from private teaching to high school and at University level teaching. I am the Area Leader in Composition for Screen at the Royal College of Music, teaching Composition at Masters Level, supervising dissertations, essays, and moderating undergraduate exams. I am also a deputy composition/theory teacher at the RCM Junior department
I work in contemporary classic music, opera, films, theatre, crossover music as arranger, composer, performer, conductor and sometimes music producer.

Tutoring Experience:

I have nearly 20 years of experience as private tutor, 10 as a lecturer at University/Conservatoire level and 8 in secondary school. I have taught composition, piano, music theory, orchestration, arranging to various students from various backgrounds, age, level. Fully confident with the ABRSM system both for theory and piano, I can also support students who wish to prepare their entrance to university, or need help with their GCSE/ALevel music courses, as well I am used to teach adults who are willing to learn music for their own enjoyment.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies from student to student according to their level, age and experience. I am always happy to create a relaxed and enjoyable environment during lessons, but I am always aiming to achieve the best possible results from students, hence when required I may be demanding. But if someone is willing to take lessons just as a hobby, then I make sure that they enjoy their time playing (or learning how to compose) making sure they always progress bit by bit.
For example if a young student is willing to learn the piano to eventually continue his/her studies at a Conservatoire, then I would be quite systematic, including techniques and scales exercises (other than pieces) in their routine, and I would make sure he/she understands the importance of being consistent and disciplined when learning an instrument.
