Tutor of Classical Piano, Music Theory and Composition
Fabio was born in a little town in Northern Italy. He had his first brush with music when, as a teenager, he started playing trombone in the local community band. Then, he decided that music would be the driving force in his life. Fabio completed his musical education earning an Italian Conservatory Diploma in classical piano at the “F.A. Bonporti Conservatory” in Trento, Italy. While teaching music and piano as a private teacher for many years, he kept playing trombone and piano in various ensembles (big bands, brass bands, wind bands and classical orchestras).
In 2010 Fabio moved to New York City and, after some time spent playing trombone in different groups (including a memorable recital at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center with the Brooklyn Wind Symphony), in 2014 he had the opportunity to fulfil his dream of studying composition at the Juilliard School, with Raymond Lustig and Jonathan Dawe.
After that, in Spring 2015, Fabio was accepted at the Master in Music Composition and Film Scoring at New York University, where he graduated in January 2017. While attending NYU, he studied with brilliant composers including Ira Newborn and Mark Suozzo. His score for the short animation "Goodnight Boon" has been awarded with "Honorable Mention" at the 2017 NYU Film Scoring Competition.
Winner of many important awards with his compositions, at the beginning of 2020 Fabio moved to London where he continues his activity as a composer for film and multimedia and as a music, composition and piano teacher.
Fabio is available to teach specialist courses for undergraduate students.
"Fabio has been a pleasure to work with, always responsive and collaborative. As far as I am concerned, I can say that Fabio was very efficient, detail-oriented, and a great team player. Very competent, with a positive attitude in problem solving, he always successfully finished the given tasks in a timely and professional manner.
I would like to mention here his great attitude and natural predisposition when it comes to dealing with people, both with customers and colleagues. His great communication skills allow him to connect with people of any ages and backgrounds." - Lorenza Casagranda
"I had the opportunity to know Fabio since a long time. He is always be a great musician and also a good man.

In the last years he has also become a great composer in New York." - Marco Bazzoli
"Fabio is a great teacher. First of all, he is a very good pianist and musician. His knowledge in music theory is really impressive and he knows what is important to teach first to a student. That means, he could really guide the student in his whole learning process. I started to learn the piano with Fabio when I was a child, and this experience gave me a lot of culture and deepness in music and art. Thanks to Fabio's teaching, I also discovered new kinds of good music and I opened my mind in life too. I never stopped playing and listening to music since the years with Fabio as a teacher. So, I really recommend him for everyone who wants to learn music in the right way!" - Giordano Cova
"As I was a child, in the years 2001 and 2005 (7 to 11) I received piano lessons from Fabio. He was my first music teacher. He involved me as pupil in concentrated lessons, but not extremely heavy. He can manage to find the right point between the new points the pupil have to practice, without to force in extremely difficult things. Fabio gave me not only a technical approach, but also a lot about music theory and musical style. I found it very important. Especially for a child that approach to the music and does not know if he will became a professional musician. I mean, after some time I played the piano, I changed my main instrument to violin. But for those reasons, the all things that Fabio taught me has become very important for my actually career. Although I changed my main instrument, I did not stop to play the piano. Sometimes I am also happy and available to offer me as piano teacher. I am satisfied to say that now, also thanks to the Fabio’s piano lessons, I became a professional violin player and professor in a music school in Berlin." - Massimiliano Cova
