l`m an italian professional pianist. I began studying classical piano at the age of eleven and went on to major in piano at the Conservatory of Lecce, graduating with full marks at the age of nineteen. After falling in love with jazz and improvisation when I was nineteen, I attended Lecce State Conservatory on a full jazz scholarship with first class honors.
I specialize in many styles of piano and have received numerous prizes at national piano competitions.
In addition to being a musician, I have expertise in business. I graduated with first class honours (110/110 cum laude) in Economics and Finance from the University of Salento in 2013.
My album “Flowing” is the result of a prize in the music competition "Giuseppe Tricarico" (May 2016 - Gallipoli, Italy) which he won and which allowed me to produce this record. It was released in December 2018.
In September 2018 I had the chance to lead workshops about jazz music in Santo Domingo at Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo, National Conservatory of Music and Academia de Música de Patricia Logroño.
In June 2019 I was one of the Top Prize winners at the International Online Quebec Music Competition (Montreal, Canada), where I played my own composition called “Latin Jazz Etude – Una Noche en el Barrio”, and in July 2019 I won the First Place at the San Francisco International Innovative Music Competition (Summer Edition).
Since December 2018 I have been collaborating as sheet music arranger with the US-based website www.musicnotes, the world`s leading digital sheet music retailer.
I`m a music teacher with many years of experience, whose students range in age from 5 to 60 plus. I encourage music study not only for performance success, but also for personal development. In 2019 I attended music pedadogy courses at the Conservatory of Lecce and after studying a lot of pedagogy books, I have developed and tested Orff-methods to teach piano jazz and blues to all ages.
I love working with very young children and with old beginners as well. I am a very patient and approachable piano teacher and always study music pedagogy to be a better teacher.
Since 2013 I‘ve been the vicepresident of the Music School and Association “Oda – Officina Degli Artisti” (Taurisano, Italy).
