Since completing my Jazz master’s degree at “Guildhall School of Music and Drama” I have gained 5 years of teaching experience. My lessons include different subjects such as saxophone, clarinet, Jazz harmony, Jazz improvisation, music theory, arranging, ear training and Jazz composition.
I approach my teaching in a holistic manner, tailoring lessons to suit the individual. I do believe that the learning process, particularly in music, is a personal thing, that’s why I have developed a personal path according to what each person wish to achieve. I have experience coaching for jazz & modern music ensembles as a well as giving masterclasses to small groups of adults and I also have prepared privately some of my pupils for official exams (such as “Trinity”). Since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, I have started giving lessons online via Skype.
I have a wide experience as a professional performer, in original ensembles as well as a session musician. Since I moved to the UK I have been playing in different festivals across the country (like “Isle of Wight festival”, “Cheltenham Jazz festival”, “London Jazz festival” etc) as well as in Europe (Switzerland, Italy) and Asia (Hong Kong, China). In London I have performed in venues like Royal Albert Hall, Oliver’s Jazz bar, Rich Mix, Savoy Hotel, Barbican freestage (with members from the “Sun Ra Arkestra”), the Shard, Pizza Express Jazz club and many others. I also have experience as studio recording artist as well as radio performances.
Considering how music brings something very important to my life I would be glad to share my knowledge to the students, supporting them during the learning process. For me, I would work patiently with them to develop their own personal voice in music as well as instilling the importance of a practice routine. Coming specifically from a Jazz background, I would offer them what is necessary to develop that language, the swing feel, the repertoire, the improvisation skills, the ear-training, the history of the music through the important recordings and solos etc.
