Excellent!

I've taken music lessons (piano, guitar, drums) for years and have been in school for many years... point is, I know what makes a great teacher... passion for their trade, genuine interest in the student learning, and (in my case) exceptional patience. Gio scores a "10" in all aspects of the student/teacher experience.

I have taken lessons with Gio for over 10 years now. Gio is knowledgable and highly skilled in many areas of guitar. Not only does he have a command of the instrument, but he has a great understanding of musical theory as well. I have learned much and continue to broaden my knowledge of the instrument. I highly recommend Gio as a guitar teacher. Plus the italian accent is great.

About Massimo

My name is Massimo, I was born and I spent all my life in Italy since I moved, three year ago in US with my family for a new great adventure.

I must be honest by saying that I am not a good student when it comes to learning a language. So I must congratulate Massimo on his patience with me as a slow learner. Despite my desire to learn Italian, desire is not enough. Massimo made things easier for me and much more interesting by combining my interests with the lessons for the day. For example, Massimo created lessons around my interest in Italian Serie A futbol and my interest in Italian history. We studied the many regions and some current events while learning basic Italian. Massimo also has a good sense of humor and easy going with his students. I would easily recommend Massimo to anyone who is seeking a tutor to learn Italian. Prepare to have fun while learning!

I have been studying Italian language for over three years. I got to the point where I was seeking to build my day to day conversational skills in Italian. Massimo has proved to be perfect for this task by sharing his practical approach to learning and practicing daily Italian conversation. Over the past year he has taught me to convey what is on my mind in Italian without feeling intimidated or worried about making mistakes, as this is all a part of learning to speak in Italian with confidence. He is patient, a very nice person, and he also a good sense of humor. This makes learning fun!
Our conversations are sprinkled with Italian cooking lessons, culture and geography. His teachings are lessons within lessons that have given me confidence to use my book learning in social settings.
I highly recommend learning Italian with Massimo. And if you are interested in home made, and easy Italian recipes, he has a lot to share. Some of Massimo’s favorite recipes that I have learned how to make and now use regularly are:
Strawberry Tiramisu (Tiramisu alle fragole)
Lasagna (le lasagne alla Bolognese; con besciamella) This is a red sauce and a while sauce and I use a crock pot to prepare the delicious red sauce.
Meatballs in tomatoe sauce (Polpette al sugo)
Italian flat bread with rosemary (Focaccia al Rosmarino)
Homemade fresh- ricotta cheese (ricotta formaggio)
I have also learned where and how to shop for the best ingredients from Massimo. We have had many conversations in Italian, on cooking Italian style.

I have always had difficulty learning a new language and the prospect of trying again was daunting but Massimo’s personality and approach immediately put me at ease. From the very first lesson with Massimo it was clear to me that he has a passion to help students achieve their potential regardless of their level or ability. He is not your traditional tutor who simply teaches from a text book (i.e. my high school language teachers), but he incorporates the Italian culture into his lessons and makes learning fun! Not only is Massimo an excellent tutor but he is flexible. I am a working professional so there have been occasions when I could not make our session due to travel or meetings, he has always worked with me to reschedule, which has been essential in my progress. I cannot say enough about how great Massimo has been as a tutor. As a side note, his cooking is stupendous. I have not taken a cooking class (but that is on my bucket list) but I have had the pleasure of dining at his house with his family and it was truly an unforgettable meal.

I speak a high intermediate level of Italian so if you are looking for lessons and you are just beginning I would love to help.

About Christopher

Welcome! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, song writer, and experienced music teacher. I began learning music when I was nine on the piano however by the time I turned twelve I discovered my passion for the guitar. I began by learning songs and playing in band with some of my school friends. This was the start of my journey into music. I started with blues, rock, and pop music but I quickly moved into more complex genres such as funk and Jazz music.

In college I began my studies of the historically endless and huge world of classical music. This is also when I began teaching and taking students of guitar. I studied classical music at Hofstra University and completed my degree at Humboldt State University in Northern California. After earning my degree I began ...
