He started approaching music at the age of 13 with the classical guitar, and at 16 he started playing the electric bass guitar. He graduated in Electric Bass at the CPM in Milan in 1995; over the years he has participated in clinics by Gary Willis, Alain Caron, Massimo Moriconi, Paolo Costa, Faso, Hadrien Feraud.
In about 20 years of activity he had the opportunity to play, in studio or live (concerts or jam), with artists such as: Paolo Belli, Christian Meyer, Andrea Braido, Rudy Rotta, Massimo Varini, Fausto Leali, Luisa Corna, Ivana Spagna, Marco Ferradini, Gazebo, Fiordaliso, Tracy Spencer, Meccano, Belen Thomas, Righeira, Ivan Cattaneo, Tony Esposito, Delia Gualtiero, Richie Gajate Garcia, Lisa Hunt, Vittorio Matteucci and many others.
For some years now, he has been associating his activity as a bass player with that of a composer: he is currently writing for his original music project, which has resulted in the publication of a CD in his name, released in February 2018 and published by Setticlavio Edizioni; this project is supported live by a line-up (Baba’s Quartet).
He currently collaborates with the Spanish artist Hevia, as well as with different formations.
If distance can be an obstacle, I have the possibility to record the bass track directly in my studio. All I need is an mp3 of the track and bpm. After I send you a temporary version in mp3 (mix bass and track), if it’s ok I’ll send the bass solo track in wave format.
If your music needs a certain sound, you can express your preference on the instrument you like best (see my Gears).
HERE an example of “long-distance” collaboration.
Transmitting what I know, to lead the student to develop their skills and, above all, their musical identity, is what makes me love teaching.
At the moment I teach electric bass guitar at the Metrotime School in Dueville,
I teach privately at my studio and, for those who live far away, there is the possibility to take lessons via Skype.
I am also available for electric bass guitar seminars both at schools and at musical instrument associations and shops.
The educational path, customized according to the level and attitudes of the student, includes a large space dedicated to ear training, which I consider a key element for the development of musical sensitivity. I am available for lessons at my private studio in Caldogno (VI), at the music school Metrotime (Dueville) or via Skype.
