I was fortunate enough to have Paolo recommended to me as a piano teacher as an adult student in my mid-20s. He was patient, engaging, and did an amazing job tailoring my lessons in such a way as to work with my busy schedule and also always keep me enthusiastic and engaged. If Paolo hadn’t had to return to Europe I never would’ve stopped my lessons. You couldn’t pick a better teacher out there for yourself and I highly recommend him.+ Read More
Paolo is an incredible teacher!!! He has such patience with my young son and fosters a natural enthusiasm in him for the piano. He is a world class concert pianist, and yet he is able to blend his serious knowledge and commitment to the highest level learning, together with a playful attitude which naturally engages my child. I could not recommend him more, as I wanted to provide my son the opportunity to learn from the very best, but to also keep him motivated and excited at the same time. Paolo creates this atmosphere perfectly! He can't wait for his lessons and eagerly practices in between!+ Read More
I highly recommend Paolo. He is a brilliant teacher. He brought out the best in me. Through his patience and special teaching method he was able to accelerate my learning and technique, from sight reading to learning technique for major classical pieces. I wasn't sure if online would work well but it does and allows me to continue stufying while I travel. His focus, professionalism, reliability and sense of humor are all part of what makes him so unique. His intensity, technique and musicality in his own piano performances act as a true inspiration for his students.+ Read More
Paolo is an experienced, talented pianist. He's able to teach with full knowledge of what a student needs to learn piano and develop skill, confidence and technique.
I was fortunate enough to be Paolo's student for over 4 years, because he is an amazing concert pianist and also a fantastic teacher. I was an adult student (I was 40 at the time) and he was able to craft a training program for me that mixed the right amount of drills and exercises and actual classical pieces by Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven and Bach, so that at the end I was able to give s recital and had 5 pieces in my repertoire. Unfortunately he had to return to Europe so I had to stop my lessons. I had tried many teachers before him but nobody came close in terms of the teacher quality or the personal interest he took in my progress.+ Read More
