What kind of experience do you have?
I started playing the drums at age 11. After my diploma I joined two different institutions in order to achieve the most complete education about music and performing arts: La Sapienza University and the Saint Louis College of Music. Those studies allowed me to attend classes of music theory (classical, pop and jazz), aural, music technology, music history, composition (jazz and pop), journalism, media, music business, performance workshops, piano guitar and drums lessons. At the same time I started my career as a drum tutor, music journalist and session musician. I moved to London in 2007, to complete my studies at the Drumtech where I got the three months master performance certificate.
In my employment history, I have worked in schools, music studios, TV studios, newspaper offices and councils and have collaborated with producers, teachers, managers, press executives and students. I also joined a wide range of bands, artist and live acts, covering all kinds of music styles (Blues, funk, disco, rock, jazz, metal etc.). All these experiences helped to improve my management and leadership skills, in particular with students and musicians.
At the moment, I am working as a drum tutor in London and collaborating with several bands and artists in the music industry for concerts, recording sessions, music theatre and tours (The Spindle Sect, Kenitsh Fire, Diministry, Dust me Down and Mr. Peculiar, The Council, Four Those About To Rock, Punching Preachers and Phoenix Theatre among the others).
