I am a Masterdesk born in Busto Arsizio (Va) on February 28, 1977 and when I was just 5 my dad thought it best to put my first electric guitar in my arms (luckily fake) .. which obviously has had a very bad end!
But the passion had blossomed and from that moment on my only desire became to play the electric guitar!
I started studying with private teachers very early and over the years I had the privilege of dealing with great musicians and excellent teachers, belonging to different musical genres from which I learned technique and learning criteria to define my teaching method.
A great opportunity for growth that I had as a guitarist (and which I remember fondly also because I was little more than a teenager discovering the world right where the world is!), Was the opportunity to attend a course of 12 months at the Musicians Institute (G.I.T.) in Los Angeles.
Guitar teachers of the depth of Scott Henderson and Joe Diorio have transferred to me their enormous wealth of experience and all the enthusiasm I needed to throw myself headlong into the search for my identity as a musician.
It was no longer enough for me to play what others do, I wanted to compose.
Since that moment I have not spared myself: Jazz harmony studies, improvisation, working methodology in the recording studio … I admit it in those years I cultivated two of my worst defects which however supported me in this long journey: my tenacious and leathery character and my mania for perfection.
Whoever plays knows what pain in the fingers and the frustration of making mistakes and having to repeat an exercise countless times is, but also knows what infinite satisfaction it feels in being able to do it correctly.
When you no longer get to perform but you are finally able to compose .. well, satisfaction and enthusiasm repay any sacrifice!
I remember (but it happens even now don’t think it’s over ..) severe guitar study sessions but which allowed me to improve myself more and more, to take confidence in my abilities and in my mastery until I was able to abandon the patterns and let myself go to my personal technique, to my interpretation and to affirm My Style every time.
And at that point peace is with me and flows abundantly on my strings….
