"Francesco is an excellent guitar teacher and mentor with a great eye for what the learner needs. I've been making more progress than I expected and feel good about learning more theory and techniques whilst keeping things always grounded in the music styles and songs I love. It’s always good when Francesco combines the lesson with demonstrations and video examples from the great guitarists out there. Thoroughly recommend!" - Fred

"I would like to recommend Francesco as a music teacher for children and adults. Francesco is a terrific teacher and a highly skilled, gifted musician from Rome, Italy. He always focuses on his students' needs and that in my opinion is his strength. As a teacher, he never fails to give students his 100% by providing quality and engaging lessons. His passion for music is evident. He even encourages you to create your own songs guiding you every step of the way. Believe me, you don't want to miss the opportunity to study with him!" - Julie

"I would like to recommend Francesco for the Guitar \ Music Teacher role. He is a passionate, patient, competent and sensitive teacher. He takes time to understand what are your weaknesses and strengths, and runs his classes not only according to his method, which is rigorous and valid, but also depending on the pupil's preferences. He masters numbers of styles, from Rock to Blues, Classical and Jazz, and he has a strong academic background." - Luca


"I personally know Francesco because we studied in the same Music school, the Saint Louis College of Music and also shared classes. I would like to personally recommend him for the guitar teacher role; he is a mind that is always focusing on being as unique as it gets trying not to fit in something, rather creating personal music, inspired by all the genres and styles that he perfectly plays. From the human standpoint, he is patient and never gives up something, a kindhearted man that works perfectly with others and has a lot of ways to teach and speak to people." - Joseph
