I'm an eclectic guitarist, composer and producer based in London. I graduated in Jazz Guitar at the Conservatoire "Licinio Refice" in Frosinone, Italy and completed my Master's in Composition at City University, London. 

I've played in various London-based projects, currently with the band Dead Writers, in which he features as lead guitarist and producer. He has played venues such as the O2 Academy, Tolouse Lautrec, Black Heart, Camden Assembly and festivals across the UK and Europe. My music has been featured on national radios such as Total Rock and press outlets like Classic Rock magazine, where my band won the "Track of the Week" contest, competing alongside guitar legend Steve Vai.

My compositions have been featured in various music libraries and his band Dead Writers were selected from Qatar Airways for their on-flight playlist.

In my career, I have also composed music for film and theatre, scoring his first feature length film in 2018.

Alongside my activity as a performer, I work as a music tutor specialising in Rockschool and Trinity grades, in which his students have landed a remarkable 100% success rate.

I currently teach guitar in various music schools across London and I'm featured as a contributor to the internationally renowned blog Soundfly (50k+ followers on socials), for which I provide articles on composition, guitar and music analysis.

I specialise in Rockschool and Trinity grades as well as personalized repertoire.

A typical lesson includes:

- Assessment of current guitar skills and consolidation of technique.

- Development of other skills / techniques according to the student's goals and ambitions. These may include: learning songs according to the student's taste, developing student's own musical voice, encouraging creativity, learning music's basics (harmony/scales/timbre/effects etc.).

- Optional : Rockschool and Trinity exams preparation for those interested / already enrolled.

Being able to inspire people through music is what I really enjoy about my work. To see their growth as musicians fills me with pride. I think that music helps to better understand the world around us and who we want to be in relation to it. To provide such insight is ultimately why I teach music.
