About Me...

Stefano's music background began at an early age when he started playing classical guitar and singing. He soon started listening to popular jazz and soul singers who influenced his learning and performances.
From his town, Pescara (Italy), where he was born and raised, he moved to Rome (Italy) to attend “Corrado Pani Arts Accademy” and then graduated in Literature at “Roma Tre University”.
In Rome, he was a Soloist in many groups like “Unbound Voices Gospel Choir”, “All Music Big Band” and because of them he had the opportunity to perform in many important stages like “Varese International Gospel Festival”, “Villa Celimontana Jazz Festival”, “Alexander Platz Jazz Club” and worked for RAI Television as well.
He worked as a Vocal Coach and Music Director for private schools like “Ars Nova School of Music” (Colleferro, Rome), “Accademia della Musica” (Rome), “Jobel Teatro-Arteam School of Art” (Rome), and many others.
He had the opportunity to teach in Public schools like “Dante Alighieri” (Pescara) and “Liceo Scientifico Galieo Galilei” (Pescara), realizing many music projects sponsored by the Governament.

After this period he wanted to expand his musical horizons and moved to Boston where he graduated in 2013 from Berklee College of Music, majoring in Contemporary Writing and Production. In his career academy he received many awards and scholarships.
Stefano also had the pleasure to study and perform with wonderful musicians and artists such as Bill Elliot, Bob Stoloff, David Scott, Joey Blake, Norma Winston, JD Walter, Donna McElroy, Barry Harris, Cinzia Spata, Maria Pia De Vito and the Grammy Awarded Patrice Rushen, to name a few.  With Cinzia Spata, he had also the opportunity to collaborate at her book “Jazz Vocal” (Volonte’ & CO., Milano, 2010)  which is now one of the most popular vocal technique books in Italy.

Since 2011 he has been performing with the Vocal Group "The Singing Tribe".

In 2012 he had been selected as an arranger for Luis Enrique "The Prince of Salsa" and he had the pleasure to arrange for the Whitney Houston Tribute, he also writes for many artists and groups like Franco Corso, Modular Art Collective Ensamble and many others. Stefano is a member of the A Cappella group Sung Deep since 2012 where he got to experience more cultural diversity in musicJazz was not Stefano's only interest and thanks to his studies he had the opportunity to explore many projects including writing jingles for advertisements and television and for small and large ensembles and film scoring. His passion for performing led him to sing in many places around the world with his own compositions. 

Thanks to all these features and influences, Stefano is blessed to be considered a professional singer and an excellent vocal coach as well as a writer, composer and producer.
