Teaching

I am currently a teaching professor in Jazz Arranging at the Piacenza Conservatory for both Bachelor and Masters qualification.
I exceptionally accept external students for in-person lessons (Milano area) or e-mail/Skype with screen share.
For more advanced writers, I am available for "guidance counseling", whereby a composer/arranger can send a piece to me at any stage of development for constructive criticism, comments, ideas.
Please contact me for further information.
