Teaching


After completing my Master’s degree and several master classes in Europe and U.S.A., I devoted myself for many years  to my own individual practice and career. These were years of travel, competitions, unforgettable experiences, carefully  balanced with a fulfilling private life.

After the birth of my of my two children I decided to dedicate myself to teaching, without regret. At the beginning of this new journey I relied on my musical instinct and on the many theoretical methods I knew.


Today, twenty-five years later, I think that  theory and instinct should always be associated with respect for the student’s personality. Since every person assimilates in a different way, careful observation and listening can make the difference.

A good teacher doesn’t turn the student into his copy, but can accept differences and make them strong points. This requires flexibility and humility, both from student and teacher, because teaching is a mutual job, based on confidence and experience.

For both of them it’s a work in progress, the only dogma must be the respect for the music.

These didactic considerations arise from my continuous desire to deepen my teaching concepts.
