Lesson Details

Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Being a native Italian and having lived in Rome for over 30 years gives me the necessary knowledge to know what is needed in order to learn the Italian language and get deeper into the Italian culture. Also having over 20 years of teaching experience allows me to tailor my knowledge to the need of every particular student. I really enjoy to transfer my knowledge and solve the unique problems that every student encounter during their path.

Teaching since:

Bassist and composer Andrea performs extensively within the improvised music scene, across a broad spectrum of genres. His instrumental tone, sensitivity and imagination, and melodic approach to a supposedly clumsy instrument brought him to perform and record with many established musicians. Based in New York City, his work as an instrumentalist and composer can be regularly heard at the top jazz clubs in the city and around the globe.

As a current faculty member of the New York Jazz Workshop, Andrea is a dedicated educator. He has taught master classes at the National Institute of Music and the National University of Costa Rica, at the Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, Turkey and at the Olav Duun Videregående Skole in Namsos, Norway. He also served as an adjunct professor at New York University, where he graduated in 2011 with a Master of Music Degree in Performance with a Concentration in Jazz as a Fulbright scholarship recipient.

Andrea is a patient, and very good Italian language teacher. He is teaching my 6 year old and keeps the lesson very engaging and easy to follow. She learned a lot in just 30 minutes and had fun doing so. I highly recommend him for children and adults.

Andrea is a fantastic teacher. I came to the bass with some music background, and Andrea met me right where I needed him to meet me. His teaching methods are clear, concise, and all-encompassing. We focus on music theory, technique, and playing each lesson, and Andrea has greatly expanded my musical vocabulary and repertoire. I'm amazed at my progress so far, and I look forward to getting even better with Andrea's tutelage!

Andrea is absolutely fantastic! We love him!

We are a group of beginners, ages 25-65, and he has been extremely patient with all of us. He helps us improve our language skills in a fun, encouraging way. We look forward to continuing our lessons with him, and improve our Italian!

In Avanti!
