Bass and Double Bass lessons for all levels and genres

Bass is the key instrument for every band or ensemble since it has the function of being a bridge between rhythm and harmony. The range of styles that the Bass can cover is basically limitless; from a prominent position like in funk and fusion to the background of pop and rock music the versatility of the instrument gives you the unique possibility to explore any genre you're into.

My lessons will follow a program tailored to you and your goals.
Discover this amazing instrument by learning the songs you love or diving deep into all the important skills that make a great session bass player.
With my help you can also learn music theory, reading scores, jazz harmony and improvising.
From the very first lesson, you will be able to jam with other people:)


"It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself." J. S. Bach

About Me

I'm a bass and double bass player from Palermo, Sicily. In 2017 I moved to Tilburg, Netherlands, in search of bigger opportunities. I'm studying bass at Fontys Academy of Music and Performing Arts where I'm able to cultivate my love for all kinds of Arts and I'm in a position to exchange ideas and collaborate with many talented artists.
​I love to play in large ensembles, Big Bands, and Orchestras. Professional and versatile.

Education

I studied Electric Bass at Vincenzo Bellini Conservatory in Palermo and Double Bass at Brass jazz club.
I studied Electric Bass at AMPA Conservatory Tilburg where I am currently studying jazz Double Bass

Experience / Qualifications

I approached the instrument in my early adolescence by playing in a few blues rock bands in my hometown. In my last years of high school, I got closer to jazz and started studying bass guitar at the conservatory V.Bellini of Palermo and at the same time double bass at the Brass group. There I started to play with a few jazz ensembles and simultaneously with a grunge band. In 2017 I moved to Tilburg, Netherlands, in order to continue my studies in jazz bass guitar at AMPA. In there I played in many jazz venues and events and had the opportunity to work with many international artists to create experimental performances.
In 2019 I changed my major to jazz double bass.

Do you want to learn how to play saxophone in Amsterdam?
Music is the best way of communication in the world, the most international language and an easy way of sharing. Teaching means a lot for me; it allows me to pass on beautiful things I have learnt and at the same time to improve thanks to my students' feedback. Music and musical teaching are about joy and never-ending curiosity. My lessons are totally compiled on the student's needs, both time-wise and content-wise, and they are aimed to get quick results. We can work out many different topics together, such as learning tunes, technique, improvising, as well as approaching theory, reading, circular breathing, altissimo register and multiphonics... The lessons usually take place in my studio close by Javaplein in Amsterdam or by my house in Bos en Lommer. I work mornings and evenings as well as in the week end. Saxophone is fun! Contact me and get a first lesson as soon as possible, I am looking forward to meeting you.

Hello (future) musician! Do you also have a song in your head that you would like to play? Always wanted to play electric or acoustic guitar or bass guitar? Have you never touched a string, or are you advanced and looking for new challenges? I have been giving guitar lessons since 2007 with great pleasure. In addition to these private lessons, I worked at the Guitar Academy in Amsterdam, at Muziekles Den Bosch and at Art in Music in Utrecht, next to my work as an executive musician. I studied at the Rockacademie in Tilburg and Musicology at Utrecht University. Broad interests, reflected in the hoevelheid styles I play and education (from pop and rock to salsa, tango and gypsy to metal and jazz). I also give solfège and music theory. It does not matter how exotic your interest, I can help you get better! In addition, I can choose and arrange songs for you, so that there is no limit to your imagination: learn to play what you want to learn to play.

Besides guitar enthusiast teaching is a big passion of mine, and I think that is essential to be able to offer good lessons. Whether I teach you how to play your first songs in a few lessons, or whether we are going to pick up some tough pieces, it is a pleasant and productive learning process.
