GUITAR TUITION

I started playing guitar at 13 fascinated by different kind of music. 

During my "twenties" i had the opportunity to study with great masters like Robben Ford, Carl Verheyen, Andy Timmons, Scott Henderson, Dave Hill, Jennifer Batten, Dave Holmes, Beppe Gambetta, Marcos Pereira, Alessio Menconi, Gigi Cifarelli, Maurizio Geri, Patrick Vaillant. In my early years, targeting to expand my skills, i was taking every kind of gig with: ballroom orchestras, blues rock funk r'n'b and hard rock bands, pop and jazz singers and latin ensamble.

Later i started a career like session player for international artists, musicals, rock operas and TV shows. 

I combined all my work experiences to create my teaching method focused on which are, for me, the essential topics for a guitar player.
