My name is Davide, and my music experience started when I was 10 years old during my middle school in Italy.
I started playing the cello, and I kept on studying classical music for 8 years, performing as a soloist and in many orchestras and ensembles.
In the meanwhile, I started being interested in electronic music and composition for soundtracks.
Electronic Music, orchestration, and orchestral composition
When I turned 17, I realized that music would have been my passion and my job. I graduated in “Contemporary Writing and Production” at Pescara Conservatory in Italy. During these studies, I dove deeper into Pop and Experimental Electronic Music, orchestration, and orchestral composition. I also had the opportunity to play in different bands and discover different genres, such as Post Rock, Progressive Metal, and Heavy Metal.
After my bachelor’s degree, I finished my studies following a Master’s program at Codarts (Rotterdam) in Creative Production. During those two years, I had the opportunity to collaborate with many people and explore different kinds of music (Turkish, Flamenco, Jazz, etc.). I wrote an Artistic Research about electronic unquantized music by analyzing the sound of producers such as Flume, Burial, and Arca.
Now that my studies are finished, I feel that I want to spread my knowledge and my passion for as many people as possible.
My class subjects are:
– Music Production (from beginners to expert level, mainly Ableton Live and Pro Tools classes)
– Cello Lessons (from beginners to intermediate level)
– Music Theory (from beginners to expert level)
– Composition and Orchestration (explore the world and joy of composing for an orchestra and how to use your DAW as a real symphonic orchestra).
As a Producer, I want to let the student feel completely free to ask me whatever he/she wants. I have had many experiences as a producer, and I know how to handle many different genres.
My first teaching experience was at 17 years old, and from that moment on, I did not change my teaching set-up.
I want the lesson to be an interactive moment in which the teacher and the student are sharing ideas and opinions.
I am looking forward to meeting you!
