At the Piano


Please feel free to contact me at for more information about composition or piano lessons.

I am a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher that can help in the wonderful adventure with music. A composer and pianist, trained in Italy and the United States, I have been teaching music for more than 25 years. My music studio is located in San Francisco, it includes a Yamaha concert series C7, recording equipment and composition software. I teach students starting from age 10-11.

Composition Piano
I can teach composition fundamentals that apply to a variety of musical styles, different composition styles, how to write for solo instruments, chamber ensembles, and orchestra. I believe in the importance of learning from tradition, and an important part of my teaching method is the study of master composers.
I bring to piano teaching a long experience as a soloist and chamber music player, the unique insights offered by my activity as a composer, as well as the lessons and piano playing tradition acquired from my own teachers, in particular Isabella Zielonka, Bob Helps and Julian White.
