Personal Description:

I was born in Grosseto, Italy, in 1998. I started studying classical guitar at the age of 6 with guitarist Mirko Pieri and, later, guitarist and luthier Paolo Bernardini. In high school, I studied first with Antonino Ielo and later with Alessandro Benedettelli, and obtained my Diploma di Esame di Stato with 15/15 in my performance exam. During these years, I have won several prizes at national and international competitions in Grosseto, San Vincenzo (Livorno), and Tarquinia (Viterbo) for both solo and chamber performances.

From 2017 to 2023, I have studied at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where I was recipient of scholarships, with Helen Sanderson and John Mills, also receiving termly lessons form Zoran Dukic. He graduated in performance in 2021 with an Honours First Class, receiving the "May Edwards Prize" awarded to an overseas student by the Director of Music. In 2023, I completed my Master's degree in in performance and composition with a Distinction. I composition tutors were Michael McCartney, Lynne Plowman, and Joseph Davies.

I won the RWCMD guitar department "John Mills Prize" three times in a row between 2018 and 2020, as well as the "Orpheus Prize for Guitar and Voice" in 2020 and 2021. In 2021, I classified 2nd at "Leicester MusicFest" classical guitar competition. On 5th May 2023, I performed as a soloist for the premiere of his "Symphonic Concerto for Classical Guitar and Orchestra", composed between June 2022 and April 2023, in the Dora Stoutzker Hall, for the "2023 RWCMD Atmospheres Festivals".

I have played in masterclasses for worldwide-known guitarists such as Petrit Ceku, Jack Hancher, Xuefei Yang, Pavel Steidl, Gabriel Bianco, Margarita Escarpa, Christ Stell, Matteo Mela, and Stefano Viola.

I am currently based in Cardiff, where I work as a freelance performer and composer. Other than classical guitar, I also plays piano, harmonica, acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele and mandolin.
