We’re featuring one of our Guitar Teachers each month.
This month’s featured Guitar Teacher is Simone – An active session Guitarist and arranger who joined us in 2015. He has 10 years of Guitar teaching experience with students of all levels, from the ages of 5 to 86! He’s as comfortable with an absolute beginner as he is with a more advanced Guitarist, and his engaging approach and focus ensure his students make fast progress. Being a superb Multi-Instrumentalist, Simone can teach Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Drums and Piano.
Having studied at Rome’s prestigious Percentomusica Academy and had Masterclass study with Modern Rock Virtuoso Paul Gilbert, and Arrangement and Orchestration classes with Oscar-winning Andrea Avena, he progressed to a career in Guitar Teaching and Session Guitar Playing. His session Guitar work has landed him work on TV shows The X Factor Italy and The Voice Germany and the lead Guitar role with the MuSa Jazz Big Band and The Frets Orchestra.
Simone’s teaching experience since 2007 has been huge, with a particular highlight being him being made Head Of Guitar Studies at Rome’s Rogi Music School in 2011. He held the position for 4 years before relocating to London.
Simone is a highly intelligent person and Musician, with a kind, insightful, softly-spoken manner. His successes as a teacher are proven, and growing, and we are delighted to have him on the team.
In 2016 he is taking on new students in Central, North and North West London.
