About Paolo B.

I am professional classical pianist, musicologist and music manager, working in both classical and contemporary music. I have been teaching piano for over 30 years and as a piano teacher, I learned a lot from my students to be versatile, adaptable, creative, confident.
I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I started to study classical piano when I was 6 year and today I have an intense professional activity as a member of chamber music ensembles and as a collaborative pianist for lyrical singers.

I believe the most important goal in piano lessons is fostering an enjoyment for music that lasts a lifetime. In order to nurture and develop that appreciation for music — not just piano specifically— I am happy to help my students cultivate their musical personality.

I graduated in 1989 from the Santa Cecilia Music Conservatory in Rome (Italy). I studied with Eduardo Hubert, and after graduation, with Charles Rosen, György Sándor, Andor Foldes and Elizabeth Sombart. I also studied French piano repertoire with Germaine Mounier at the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris. In 1994 I received a Master in Musicology of the 20th century degree under the direction of Hugues Dufourt at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales in collaboration with IRCAM / Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. (France)
I am actually a coach for chamber music groups at Stony Brook University within the Community Chamber Music Program. I have an intense professional activity as a member of chamber music ensembles and as a collaborative pianist for lyrical singers.
As Artistic Director of Rites of Spring Music Festival and pianist, I am excited to develop and strengthen the relationship with our audiences offering online educational activities.

On 2016 I also founded and I am the artistic director of Rites of Spring Music Festival to promote classical and contemporary music on the North Fork of Long Island.

Hi! i am an opera singer who has been out in Southold. I have had the luck to have met Paolo Bartolani.
Paolo is a remarkable teacher and coach. He is so knowledgeable and yet so kind and patient. He has the patience to work with all levels, I am very fortunate to have started working with him.
Now that we have Covid19 we are doing Zoom sessions and they are very successful. Before that we did coaching in Paolo's studio. If you want to learn without embarassment and learn so much work with Paolo Bartolani.

Rites of Spring Music Festival

Rites of Spring has quickly become the premier classical and contemporary music festival on the North Fork of Long Island. In this fifth edition the festival is devoted to classical and contemporary concerts in a setting that engages the community and invites the listener to participate on many levels. We believe great music works best in a unique environment.
