I'm a jazz guitarist, composer and teacher based in Brighton. I 'm born on April 16, 1993 in Italy (Sardinia) and I started to study music at age 8 at the Music School of my town. My first instrument was the trumpet, then I studied percussion and music theory for six years. I passed at the guitar at age 14 and I studied with some private teachers. At age 16 I have started to study jazz music with Massimo Ferra, one of the most famous jazz guitarist from Sardinia.

I graduated with honors in March 2016. At the same time I attended one year of the master in Jazz Music but I dropped out it to go in the UK to study English at the Brighton Language College. In the last years I worked as a guitar teacher and music teacher in private schools, I played in many music festivals including "Venezze Jazz Festival", "Treviso Suona Jazz", "Jazz Nights at Casalini's Garden". I have passed the audition for the Master in Jazz Guitar and performance at the the Guildhall School Of Music and Drama in London.
