Experience: I have taught privately, either in school and in home, in Florence and Bolzano (Italy). After graduating 10 years piano diploma at the Conservatory in Florence, in 2018 obtained a master degree at the Conservatory in Bolzano. I am now attending the Mperf at the Royal College of Music in London. During my studies in Bolzano, I had the opportunity to study with international pianists: I attended Sofya Gulyak`s lessons for two years and Master Classes conducted by Alexander Lonquich, Wolfgang Manz, Pietro De Maria, Enrico Pace and Boris Petrushansky.
In Italy I attended the XXVIII (2010), XXIX (2011) and XXX (2012) International Course of Musical Interpretation at Norcia, and the International Piano Days (Conservatories Monteverdi of Bolzano and Trinity Laban of London) in Montepulciano (2016 and 2017).

I played in concerts held in Florence, Pistoia, Pisa, Merano, Scandicci, and in the Sala Michelangeli of the Conservatorio Claudio Monteverdi in Bolzano.
I took part to a few international piano competitions (first prize at Vito Frazzi competition in Scandicci), and I was chosen by the Conservatory of Bolzano to take part to Busoni Piano competition and thereafter to play in two editions (2016 and 2017) of the Bolzano Piano Festival.
Feedback For Giacomo (1)
Giacomo is a gifted concert pianist who is also amenable to sharing his talent and experience by teaching students. He is a good teacher and observant about the pupil`s hand position and wrist movement while playing the piano. He was able to correct my hand position and show me exercises to loosen my wrist. He gave several excellent suggestions about improving my scales and arpeggios. He also listened to four pieces of classical music and made helpful suggestions regarding how to practice them, correctly play grace notes, and make the pieces more expressive. I highly recommend Giacomo as a piano teacher.
