We begin the first class with a brief presentation and assessment of your knowledge, identifying your strengths and weaknesses. We will define what your motivations are for playing the piano; then, together we will design a programme for the next classes and your progressive learning in the performance of this instrument.
In the first session I evaluate the student's skills in correct posture, music theory, solfeggio, piano chords, and limb coordination. During that class you will have a personalised follow-up to know how you work and what your difficulties are, in this way I will guide the following classes to help you advance.
During the classes we will work in parallel on the skills required to master the piano technique. Firstly, we start with ten or fifteen minutes of solfeggio exercises. In the next class, I will ask the student to repeat everything they have learned in the previous lessons to make a personal work record. Next, we will do technical exercises: constant practice will allow the student to achieve the indispensable agility, independence and strength, the perfect equality of the fingers and the elasticity of the wrists, conditions necessary to achieve a safe, solid, and elegant performance, which is the secret of great artists. Before finishing, we will put into practice the new knowledge acquired through known compositions and, to finish, I will recommend specific exercises according to my record of the student's progress; we will also review information on different issues of music history and musical culture.
I have at least ten years of experience as a pianist. I received my musical training through music academies, private teachers and, later, I continued with constant study and self-training. I am interested in classical music and jazz; this genre is characterized by a strong emphasis on rhythm and improvisation. I am a Master of Fine Art, I have knowledge in the plastic emphasis, in the study of the history of art and aesthetics for the theoretical formation of an artist.
Besides art, I like to read and learn about some humanistic themes. Due to my affinity with the humanistic universe, I include a historical-artistic component that gives a particular meaning to interpretation; that these classes could also be given in Italian, French and English supported by artistic aspects of those cultures; I must say that I am also a teacher of those languages.
