- Alexander Technique
I teach the violin following the most updated methods. I am very careful the posture of the student is comfortable and relaxed any passage or music they are playing.I have been teaching violin/viola for more than 25 years.
I was born in Palermo, Italy where I began playing the violin at the age of six. At the age of ten I was accepted into the Teacher/Performer Violin Professional Program at the “Conservatorio di Musica Vincenzo Bellini”. After graduation in 1987 I began teaching at the Conservatory (“Conservatorio di Musica Vincenzo Bellini”) and after many successful years at the Conservatory, I decided to move into teaching privately where I have been enjoying this chapter in my career ever since.
As well as obtaining a position at the Vincenzo Bellini Theatre of Catania, Italy, one of the most prominent Italian Opera Orchestras, I also won auditions in many Chamber Orchestras where I played as soloist and Concert Master touring throughout Italy. I attended Master class in Italy with Felix Ayo, winner of “Gran Prix du disque”. Mr. Ayo is considered to be one of the top interpreters of “Bach Violin Solo Sonatas and Partitas”.
I am also a faculty member at the British Columbia Conservatory of Music where I teach a number of enthusiastic violinists and I take a special interest in improving Violin technique. My teaching method includes the traditional methods of Galamian and Flesch and, the relatively new teaching methods of Kato Havas, Suzuki, and Alexander methods.
My students won many competition and many of them reached the highest marks in the Royal Conservatory of Music exams (R.C.M.) locally and international competitions. I also have students which they does not pursue any career in performing but just love to play the violin.Everybody love music and violin is welcome to reach my class.
I also have been a member of the Vancouver Island Symphony, B.C. Chamber Orchestra, Burnaby Symphony Orchestra and Kamloops Symphony Orchestra.
I had students awards from Royal Conservatory of Music(RCM) and some reached the distinction during the season RCM exams.
I study the Kato Havas technique which helps a lots with the tension. I teach the Flesch and Galamian method.
