My experience as a guitar teacher started early in 2012, giving private lessons to people in my neighbourhood. Ever since, I have enjoyed teaching students, passing onto them the required knowledge and skills. However, the experience from which I have been gaining the most happened to me in the academic years 2014/2015 and 2016/2017. During this period I have been teaching students from 6 to 15 years old, either doing 1:1 lessons or taking two-students at a time in Rome for the Association ‘Musichiamo’.
Paramount when I work is accuracy and attention to detail, in order to maximise the results and develop young people’s potential. I believe that a teacher never stops being a student, as we can always learn from our pupils with a mutual exchange of knowledge. Above all, I am so passionate about my art form and absolutely adore what I do. Every student deserves teachers who can guide them onto their own musical pathways, and I believe that without love and passion this simply is not possible. I am driven by my youthful zest for music, and this fresh approach will certainly be welcomed.
Lessons generally last for one hour. However, 30 or 45 minutes lessons are accepted. I'm happy to provide a 30 min free of charge consultation lesson. Once a student commits to regular lessons an advance payment for four lessons is required (a refund for a lesson can be issued if 48h notice is given by the student).
For every student I choose a different and tailored learning programme, in order to achieve the best result and satisfaction for him/her.
I live in Glasgow and I can easily reach the City Center, West and East End and South side by bus.
