Bio

The passion for music was born with me, in fact I believe that already from the womb the charm of this wonderful art!
From an early age, music has seasoned my life thanks to my father, who has done his job with music. Seeing him tinkering with the guitar I was struck and finally at the age of 10, thanks to a classical guitar given to me by my aunt, I could begin to cultivate to all effects this passion.
In this period, listening to songs like "Afraid To Shoot Strangers" by "Iron Maiden" excited me and made me grow an ever stronger passion for Rock, Electric Guitar and Music in general.

LIVE / STUDIO / SOUND TECHNICIAN
At the age of 16 I bought my first electric guitar, which led me to make the first experiences with local bands, and especially with the Zone 60 group, thanks to which I could enjoy moments of healthy and pure Rock.
From 1995 to 2009 I had the opportunity to develop the LIVE / STUDIO / TECNICO DEL SUONO experiences.
In 2016 I resume the LIVE activity with new projects.

TEACHING
The study of music has made me grow in passion and this led me to take the path of teaching.
In 2009, in fact, I started to give guitar lessons and I continue today with more and more enthusiasm and an intense didactic activity.

TRAINING
As for the study, from 12 up to 22 years I studied self-taught but at some point the need to study, to deepen and better understand what I did was felt and then thanks to the first jobs I started to take the first lessons.

In 2003 I started studying with several teachers and also as a self-taught until 2014.

In 2014 I started attending training courses for the teaching qualification of the MGI (Modern Guitar Institute) section of MODERN MUSIC INSTITUTE with Bruno Monello (Head of MMI Sicily).

In November 2014 I obtained the teaching qualification of the MRI (Modern Recording Institute) section of MODERN MUSIC INSTITUTE (MMI) with Davide Rossi (MRI national coordinator).

In 2016 I obtained the teaching qualification of the MGI (Modern Music Institute) section of MODERN MUSIC INSTITUTE (MMI) with Alex Stornello, honorary president, coordinator and educational supervisor of the international school MODERN MUSIC INSTITUTE (MMI www.modernmusicinstitute.com).
