Emanuele is a wonderful teacher. He's very friendly and accessible, not the "intimidating expert" type at all. He's very open and flexible in meeting students at the level they are, with no judgement at all, but with genuine interest and care, instead. He's very knowledgeable but also keeps the lesson light and fun. He's supportive and actively tries to help you improve, exploring your individual strengths and weaknesses with you, instead of sticking to any pre-conceived ideas. His comments never feel like he's correcting you, they always feel supportive. You can feel he loves what he's doing, and love and joy for piano-playing is the feeling you leave with after a lesson. Highly recommended.
Emanuele is a great piano teacher - he helped me immensely with both music theory and playing. I have made noticeable progress. These lessons were one of the highlights in this otherwise gloomy CoVID19 autumn. Looking forward to continuing my lessons after the Christmas break.
Emanuele is a wonderful piano teacher - he is calm, he explains things well and he keeps every lesson fresh/different. I really enjoy my lessons. As an adult learner I was nervous in my first lesson, but he made me feel comfortable straight away. I would absolutely recommend him!
Emanuele is a very nice and patient with me. as I need ear traning, he gave me tarning step by step to learn it. really thanks for Emanuele.
I can teach Piano with different specialisations: Classical, Pop, Jazz, HipHop. I can also teach Music Theory, Jazz Improvisation and Theory (any instrument), Ear Training and Jazz/Pop/HipHop Composition and Arrangement. I can teach at my own place. I have a nice studio apartment with a very nice upright piano. Classes that don't need the piano can be given via webcam.

Classical Guitar Lessons from Conservatorium-Trained Teacher
Hi, I’m Andrea! I’m a professional classical guitar performer and educator from Sydney, Australia. I have been developing my music teaching business for over 8 years, through which I teach a wide range of styles, levels, and ages. Lessons are specifically tailored to meet the needs of each student, whether the focus is on classical guitar performance, chords, pop/rock, jazz/blues, or Spanish-style fingerpicking. Music theory, composition, songwriting, improvisation, sight-reading, and preparation for high school exams or University auditions are all options that can be incorporated into lessons. I have plenty of experience with young children and teenagers as well as adults, from complete beginners to advanced players. My teaching philosophy is holistic in that I strive to help my students become well-rounded musicians with a range of listening, reading, improvisation, and analytical skills, while of course carefully choosing repertoire that will cater to the student’s taste as well as their abilities. Pop/rock guitar, blues and jazz improvisation are also options as well as classical training.
