Double bass, Electric bass, Improvisation, Music, Jazz, Classical, Pop, Rock!

Do you want to play bass?
Do you want to learn more about music?
Do you have a music group that needs a coach?

I can help you with that!
My name is Alessio and I am an Italian professional double bass/bass player with degrees in classical and jazz.
I've been living in the Netherlands for over 10 years and I have more than 15 years of professional "live music" experience, including teaching children and adults.

I have always believed in the power of music to connect with others and forge relationships across linguistic and cultural boundaries.
In my opinion, the music discipline is one of the best drivers for a student to learn deeply about themselves.

In my lessons, we will make sure to cover many aspects of playing, from the physical approach to the instrument (especially important for double bass players) to the personal musical expression.

Depending on your wishes and needs, we can focus on:

Genres: jazz, improvisation, classical, pop, rock, metal, funk, blues, etc...
Learning deeper: ear training, harmony, theory, music theory
Band coaching

All levels (beginner, intermediate, conservatory preparation)

About Me

Hi,
My name is Alessio and I' m an Italian double bass and bass guitar player.
I made music my life and I really believe in its power to connect people to each other as well as to themselves in unique ways. For both adults and kids, playing an instrument as beautiful as the bass can be the start of discovering these meaningful connections within daily life. Of course, connecting these days might be digital! But don't worry, my younger students have given a stamp of approval for our Skype lessons too.

Feel free to book a lesson and let's jam together!

Matteo
VOCAL TECHNIQUE FOR ALL TYPES OF MODERN SINGING, POP, ROCK AND JAZZ SINGING LESSONS, VOCAL COACH, VOICE WORK.
Do you want to know the register of your voice? Can you sing the higher notes without hurting your voice? Learn how to do pass marks? Getting to have a powerful but also agile voice? I am Italian, songwriter, pop and jazz singer and voice teacher with 20 years of experience in music. I offer singing lessons at all levels. My classes are addressed on the development of bodily and vocal awareness which helps to perceive and consider our body as a musical instrument. My teaching method is the result of the synthesis of my experience as a singer and the many and diverse study paths followed. The lesson is structured in two parts: the first half devoted to vocal technique, the second half to musical repertoire. The vocal technique that I propose is a basic technique for all types of modern singing: from postural education to the care of breathing, from the use of the abdominal muscles, to the emission of air to the cavities of resonance. From a repertoire perspective, the course will be modeled after the student's needs or interests, with an eye for the right attitude to hold while you sing and you are on a stage. I prefer pop and jazz, but I can work with any other modern genre. If the student wishes, I can give him notions of harmony and reading music. EDUCATION I studied song with Bruno De Franceschi (conductor and composer of contemporary classical music and musical theater). I studied vocal technique with the lyric singer David Sotgiu (pupil of Luciano Pavarotti), with the lyric singer Maria Grazia Pittavini (teacher at the Perugia Conservatory) and with Cinzia Spata (one of the most important Italian jazz vocal coaches). I studied jazz singing at the Perugia Conservatory with Marta Raviglia (one of the most important Italian jazz singing teachers) and privately with Cinzia Spata. I studied lyrical singing with Maria Grazia Pittavini. I studied pop and jazz piano with Manuel Magrini (one of the most talented young Italian jazz pianists), I studied jazz piano with Alessandro Bravo, jazz piano master at the Perugia Conservatory. I followed masterclasses and trainings relating to the world of singing and voice held by: Maria Pia De Vito (singer), Alejandro Saorin Martinez (voice craft / Estill method), Albert Hera (singer, vocal coach, circle song) , Erika Biavati (singer), Eleonora Bruni (singer), Catharina Kroeger (lyric singer), Amanda Tiffin (South African jazz singer), JD Walter (American jazz singer), Matteo Belli (actor and one of the most important Italian experts in voice research), Franco Fussi (one of the most important phoniatrists in Italy), Roberta Mazzocchi (speech therapist), one-year training in rhytmics and musical pedagogy at Institut Dalcroze in Brussels, three-month training in Gordon method for children between 0 and 6 years old. EXPERIENCE / QUALIFICATIONS I have 20 years of experience in music with around 200 concerts between festivals, theaters, clubs and premises, an album of songs, an EP, singles, collaborations with the world of theater, organization of musical events . I lead musical projects in the field of jazz and pop. The passion for singing and song has inevitably brought me closer to the world of education in which I work.
