Private Guitar Lessons

Aside from performing music, I feel naturally devoted to teaching guitar, sharing my enthusiasm and what I have learnt so far. Through my experience I have taught, both privately and in music schools, to a range of students from age 5 to about 65 years old, providing music education from a very basic level, taking in consideration personal needs so to tailor didactic programs until advanced level requirements. (e. g. preparing and coaching students for entrance exams and step exams in Conservatories of Music or step exams in private music schools).

Music for your important moments

I find classical guitar's sound and music particularly suitable for intimate occasions. I would be glad to come to play and set up a unique enjoyful atmosphere with selected guitar solo background music. Could be during a wedding, a baptism, an intimate gathering, a presentation or any similar occurrences. I would be glad to discuss more with you all the details about it and send you some example of music recordings. Contact me here.
