est tibi amica musica !
I’m an Italian pianist, keyboard player, arranger and composer. I was born in Como on the 26th august 1986. I live in Varese, a city one hour away from Milan.
I started studying the piano when I was 9. When I was 18 I frequented the modern piano/keyboards course at CPM in Milan, a school founded by Franco Mussida (Premiata Forneria Marconi). In that period I got to know many musical stiles, among these first was jazz!
I'm jazz piano graduated at Milan Civic School of Music- SCDM European Foundation for Quality Management (my piano teacher in the 3 years period was Mario Rusca, who played with the most important icons of jazz like Kenny Clark, Gerry Mulligan, Chet Beker, Joe Venuti, Tony Scott, Lee Konitz). I'm also jazz piano graduated at Conservatory of Milan. I play different musical styles such as Pop, Rock, Gospel, Jazz and latin.I teach piano/keyboard, musical ensemble, theory and harmony at some schools in Varese, Milan and Lugano(CH).
With Brotherhood Gospel Choir I had the pleasure to play in two editions of the Novara Gospel Festival, awarded in june 2012 and 2013 at Gospel Music Awards as the best gospel event organized in Italy. I had a chance to play with artists of national and international fame like Laura Pausini. I played also with a important gospel singer from Manchester, Wayne Ellington (Manchester Sing Out Choir).
From the 2015 I collaborate as pianist/keyboard player, arranger and songwriter with the pop-rock band Luca Re' e i Sogni di Lucy. Recently I had a partnership as composer/producer with the popular italian writer Federico Moccia.
