I had my first lesson with Simone yesterday. We had a very good session, I like the way he focused on my fingering and that means he pays attention to details and try to develop them. I recommend him to others for sure.

Simone has been teaching me for the last few months. He has been very helpful ensuring I consolidate the basic technical knowledge I had previously acquired. He is very patient and always has good recommendation on new techniques. He has also pedagogic skills which are useful when teaching new concepts.
My first piano lesson with Simone was very enjoyable, we did a couple of simple pieces but I could already see that Simone is a very patient teacher who looked at not just at the musical aspect but also my posture. I've just booked my second class with Simone!
