At the Piano


Please feel free to contact me at for more information about composition or piano lessons.

I am a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher that can help in the wonderful adventure with music. A composer and pianist, trained in Italy and the United States, I have been teaching music for more than 25 years. My music studio is located in San Francisco, it includes a Yamaha concert series C7, recording equipment and composition software.

Composition Piano
I can teach composition fundamentals that apply to a variety of musical styles, different composition styles, how to write for solo instruments, chamber ensembles, and orchestra. I believe in the importance of learning from tradition, and an important part of my teaching method is the study of master composers. Composition can start as early as ten or eleven year old: very young students of mine have won composition competitions.
I bring to piano teaching a long experience as a soloist and chamber music player, the unique insights offered by my activity as a composer, as well as the lessons and piano playing tradition acquired from my own teachers, in particular Isabella Zielonka, Bob Helps and Julian White. I teach students starting from age 9-10.
