I started to be a regular guest teacher and performer at world renowned Festivals and Universities such as Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, Northwestern University in Chicago, Indiana University, Manhattan School of Music in New York, Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique de Genève, Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris and the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, amongst the most important. Since 2004 I have taken part in every International Tuba Euphonium Conference organized by I.T.E.A. around the world, with solo performances and master classes.
I am currently the Tuba teacher at the “C. Monteverdi” Conservatory of Music in Bolzano – Italy, and in my teaching career I have had the honour of covering the same position at Trossingen Musik Hochschule in Germany, “F.Cilea” Conservatory of Music in Reggio Calabria – Italy, “A.Casella” Conservatory of Music in L’Aquila – Italy, “B.Maderna” Conservatory of Music in Cesena – Italy.
I have been a Jury member at several orchestral auditions and at international solo tuba competitions such as Concorso Internazionale Città di Porcia, I.T.E.C. Tuba Competition, Brno International Tuba Competition, Leonard Falcone Tuba Competition – USA.
Another part of my musical life that I love, is working hard to help Melton and B&S (now part of Buffet Group), of which I am an Official Artist, to build the best tubas in the world.
I have had the pleasure of helping my students to win national and international Orchestral and Military Band Auditions at La Scala Opera House, Opera Theatre in Rome, Petruzzelli Theatre in Bari, RAI National Radio Television Orchestra in Turin, Haydn Orchestra in Bolzano, State Police Band, Guardia di Finanza Band, “G.Verdi” Milan Symphony Orchestra and the Italian Youth Orchestra. One student was granted a trial with the London Symphony Orchestra.
