Do you have a personal message for students?
I'm a serious, friendly and trustworthy person. I can teach both in English (fluent) and Italian (my mother tongue). I want the students to focus very clearly on their goals, in order to improve their skills. I believe that developing their musicality is the most important thing.

Here is a list of important points the students will learn:
- complete knowledge of the saxophone fingerings
- technique (scales, arpeggios in all Keys etc)
- sound (dynamic, quality etc)
- time feeling
- reading/repertoire
- jazz improvisation
- music theory/ elements of jazz harmony
