Alongside my work as a teacher in a state school, I have always explored innovative aspects of the teaching and dissemination of musical practice. In certain school contexts I have performed in a variety of concert clinics; and together with a team of musicians, artists and actors I have created and produced a number of didactic projects specifically for primary schools. For many years I was also flute teacher at the “Laboratorio Arte Musica e Spettacolo” academy of Verona.
I have always greatly enjoyed composing works for schools: these have included some songs for a choral anthology, the Antologia corale per la scuola dell’obbligo (published by the Federazione Cori del Trentino, 1999) and particularly the arrangement of Stravinsky’s “Tilim-bom”, from the Four Russian Folk Songs, for voice and Orff instruments, published in the journal La Cartellina in 1998, together with an essay on instrument activities in schools, Musica d’insieme a scuola (Ensemble work in schools).
As a music teacher at the Italian School in Madrid, I have coordinated and directed the choir of the Italian School, which has taken part in various official events. From 2013, together with other groups from different European schools, we have participated in the musical events of Europe Day celebrated every year in Madrid’s Auditorio Nacional.
