About Me

I consider my self a music student always aiming to improve my playing developing a personal musical language.I also consider the bass guitar mostly as a "tool with strings", there in order to express my self, so I´m always researching new ways to transcend it while never forgetting what is the role of the bass inside an ensemble.I believe the shapeshifting betweens this two things is the best way to develop a personal unique voice
Considered as one of the most interesting and innovative bass players of the new generation and ex pupil of bass gurus Matthew Garrison and Dominique Di Piazza, Roberto started soon to gain attention in Italy after winning for 2 years in a row the “Italian Bass Contest” in 2002 and 2003 and becoming a finalist of the “European Bass Contest” in 2004.
In the year 2005 he moved to Boston to attend the Berklee College of Music where he also joined the ensemble of pianist Joanne Brackeen and formed the Jazz-Fusion band Oddflow together with Hara Garacci and Louis Cato. Oddflow released the album “Almost Even” the following year and started performing all around the east coast.
In 2007 he moved to New York and lived there till 2010, playing in the local Jazz scene and touring as well, during this years he joined the band of avant-garde pop singer and “my space” celebrity Adama, meanwhile he also started a long term musical collaboration with veteran Fusion keyboardist and producer Steve Hunt (Allan Holdsworth, Stanley Clarke, Billy Cobham) which led to Roberto ́s first solo album “Re-Evaluation Time”, published in 2010 under Steve´s reord label “Spice Rack” and featuring Marty Richards and Pablo De Biasi on drums and Steve on keys.
Re-Evaluation Time gained worldwide recognition, being top seller on the Jazz-Fusion online shop “Abstract Logix” it also entered the “top five” in many jazz-oriented music radio charts. In 2010 Roberto moved back to Europe and started establishing himself as a bass player in Berlin, where he´s currently living.
In the following years Roberto started many musical collaboration like the “Silent Jazz Ensemble”, “Reiner Hess Raumshiff jazz”, “Aly Keyta trio” and leading his own trio with Bjössi Klütsch and Marko Djordjevic on drums.
In 2016 he published the debut album of the Band “Beyond Turbines” together with Steve Hunt, Bjössi Klütsch and featuring Virgil Donati on drums.
In 2017 he published his second solo album “Lapse Of Worry” with Seamus Blake on sax, Marko Djordjevic on drums and Bjössi Klütsch on guitar.
In 2018 Roberto played on the Album “Nuova Napoli” by Nu Guinea, he also co-composed the hit song “Disco Sole”.
The album is at the moment a top seller, and with Nu Guinea Roberto toured all around Europe and even Brazil for all the course of 2019.
Roberto musical collaborations brought him to perform all around the world, often with one of his signature 5 or 6 strings basses by Wood& Tronics, as well as Wood&Tronics bass guitars, Roberto is also endorsing Gr Bass amplifiers and Mama Pickups.

Danny
SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please SONGS generally consist of chord and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hIT or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you already play the guitar or piano, you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antennas are always open :-) and for some it is a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and minor input - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can achieve strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to share my knowledge about how to write a song with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book an hour to get started. That is the scan hour. Are we lying together and is there a click? If you book and I confirm, then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.
