I am a professional guitarist. I've been playing guitar for more than 20 years now and I have had several professional experiences in teaching, performance in studio and live contexts as orchestral and session-man along with some pop artists and orchestras touring around globe.
I've got good sight-reading skills and my favourite genres are Rock, Funk, Blues Jazz and R'n'b.

I have a B.Mus in Jazz Guitar of the conservatory 'V. Bellini' of Palermo scoring 110 and honors (highest possible grade in the Italian system).
I have accomplished a professional multistylistic guitar course attending the famous Percentomusica academy in Rome, studying with people like: Francesco Buzzurro, Umberto Fiorentino e Massimo Moriconi.
I've attended many masterclasses with world-famous guitarists like: Robben Ford, Scott Henderson, Mike Stern, Carl Verheyen, Andy Timmons, Steve Vai, Guthrie Govan, Richard Smith and Frank Gambale, Giulio Tampalini for Classical Guitar.
