I started playing the guitar at the age of 15, just strumming two or three chords over and over for hours, simply enjoying the sound that I could get from that fascinating piece of wood with 6 strings. After a while I started taking guitar lessons with private music teachers and at Artesuono School of Music, where, years later, I ended up teaching as well.
During the years I’ve attended several music courses and master classes with private teachers and in internationally acclaimed schools, such as the International Music Academy of Milan, and I earned the ALCM Diploma in Guitar Performance and Grade 8 Award in Music Theory at the London College of Music. This refined my technique, knowledge of harmony and musical sensibility which allowed me to be able to perform different musical genres, be it blues, metal, rock, acoustic, etc. On the videos page you can hear me playing in different styles.
After some years travelling and playing in Italy, Ireland and Canada, in 2013 I moved to Cambridge, England where I’m currently living and working as guitar teacher. I'm a regular at the jam sessions in and around Cambridge, I play guitar in the blues/funk/soul band
Live Affair and in the duo Paul & Mattia. Check the shows section of this website for live shows updates and come to see us play live!
