About Me

Paolo is an Italian songwriter, composer, and stage director, based in London.

He has independently composed, produced, and released solo albums, as well as soundtracks for theatre productions and songs for other artists. He began his music career in 1992. He is also an accomplished singer and guitarist who has performed all over Europe and collaborated with numerous international artists.

Paolo has a unique writing style that has developed over the years whilst traveling around the world, through literary studies and ongoing poetic research.
This led him to win the first prize in poetry at the Pirandello Stable Festival in 2012.

He started his career in theatre and cinema in 1998 and alongside an intensive period of training in drama school, he spent seven years acting and improving his skills in stage directing at the Teatro Regio di Torino, working under the prestigious direction of Franco Zeffirelli, Josè Carlos Plaza, Ugo De Ana, Giuseppe Patroni Griffi, and John Cox.
Since 2002 he has written and directed a considerable number of plays and short films.


Paolo had various teaching jobs throughout his career like teaching Italian Literature, Humanities, Music, and Drama in primary/secondary schools and academies. He has an MA in Humanities and Arts from the University of Turin, a Diploma in Classical Guitar from Trinity College London, and he's in the process of getting an MA in Archaeology from UCL. Paolo is actually teaching Music in a secondary school in London.


He's the founder of SounVid's video and audio productions company.

Paolo recently published the collection of Italian poems 'Viandanti Nelle terre del sole', and the book for beginner guitar players 'FAB Guitarist' both available on Amazon.

Reviews (1)

I shared a Cubase project with Paolo and he provided very specific feedback and suggestions on my mix that I'm sure will improve the quality of my music production and my confidence in my sound. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
"I strongly believe that anyone can achieve great results and learn anything when they’re motivated and enthused. As we know education is often focused on passing exams but too often the joy of learning for the sake of just learning is missing. I can certainly help with passing exams, but in such a way that enthuses my students to want to learn more, developing their talent and curiosity. It’s important to me to create a nurturing environment to enable my student to explore their ideas without fear of failure, building confidence and ultimately excelling. I take pride on being able to discover the way a student thinks and the style of learning that best matches them.

Jorge
Audio Production and Multitrack Mixing (Master in Advanced Music Technology and Bachelor in Science in Sound Engineering)
Music Producers and Sound Engineers, we use the expanded capabilities of studios to extend compositions into a device for arranging and composing (DAW: Logic Pro, ProTools, Ableton Live, OneStudio, Cubase, Reaper, Reason, etc). This has caused the recording studio to become a meta-instrument, to shape entire compositions. In my opinion, we are not any more composers of music, but we are composers of sound. As a music producer, not only the instrument played is decisive on the final result, but also the background elements, which can be heard or felt throughout the project, make such a big difference.
