Personal Description:

ABRSM Diploma and LRSM in cello performance.
I grew up in Italy and started playing the cello as a kid. While studying architecture at the university of Florence I played in various orchestras and chamber ensembles. Since moving to the UK almost 20 years ago I’ve been part of the incredibly rich musical scene in and outside London. I play and perform in chamber music ensembles such as string quartets, piano trios etc. and in several orchestras, spanning from symphonic repertoire to baroque and opera. Recent engagements have been playing continuo for baroque masterpieces such as Bach St John Passion, Purcell Dido and Aeneas, John Blow Venus and Adonis (“A particular highlight was the fine continuo playing from […]Marco on cello.” Venus and Adonis review by Planethugill).

Tutoring Experience:

I teach privately, finding students mainly through recommendation/word of mouth.
I’ve also taken part in local community projects, helping and assisting young players and have been a guest principal cello for amateur orchestras.

Tutoring Approach:

I find the whole teaching experience very rewarding: the feeling of seeing a pupil fully engaged during the lesson and eager to practice for the following one is hard to beat. I believe in teaching and playing the cello in a natural, relaxed and active way, developing a positive relationship between the player and the instrument. The lessons are tailored to suit the particular level and needs of the pupil, never forgetting that the cello is a beautiful medium for making music and having fun. Although I started my cello experience in Italy, my direct experience as a candidate with the ABRSM system gives me a precious insight in what it means to prepare and successfully sit for an exam.
