About Me

I am a 24 years old pianist and composer. I use a creative and fun approach with children and I also like playing guitar and ukulele to sing! The use of music and art is an immediate and happy way of learning and I am driven to boost children’s creativity, imagination and co-operation.
I also give piano lessons online or face-to-face to children, young and adult people at any level.

I have 5 years of experience in working with children and especially in the past three I worked in a nursery school as an after-school tutor in a class of twelve children, some of which diagnosed with ADHD and SLD. Through this experience, I have gained the ability to deal with this kind of disabilities and the creativity to find the right methods to learn and play with each of them.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
