Hi, my name is Luca and I’m a professional musician and teacher based in Wellington. I have over 12 years of playing, performing and teaching experience. In my younger years I played guitar in various bands where I delved deep into many genres including rock, pop and metal. At the same time, I formally studied classical guitar through private lessons while also playing in a chamber music style guitar ensemble. I achieved the qualification of Grade 8 through Trinity College of London examinations as well as Grade 5 in Music Theory, through ABRSM examinations. After school I went on to study at Victoria University, where I completed my BMus (First Class Hons) in Jazz Performance from the New Zealand School of Music. I played in the KBB Honours Jazz band in 2015 and the New Zealand Youth Jazz Orchestra in 2017. During my studies I learnt the tradition of jazz music and how to professionally perform, compose and arrange in the style. Currently I teach, play gigs around Wellington, practise music and compose in my spare time.
In my lessons I strive to always inspire my students and to fuel their personal interests within music. I highlight the importance of listening with my students and encourage them to always strive to discover and explore new music that interests them. Alongside lessons, this is invaluable in growing knowledge and a depth of understanding as a musician. No matter what genre or style of music my students are interested in, I always include the study of technique, music theory and aural skills in my lessons, vital for any good musician. I can teach many styles and genres including jazz music and improvisation, classical music (including preparations for Trinity/ABRSM exams), pop, rock, metal and almost anything else! I have private and institutional teaching experience, and hold a qualification for teacher training from the Music Education Centre in Auckland. Mobile lessons are also available!
