About me

Stefano Cimminiello was born in Milano in 1973, and he start to play the piano at the age of 7.

He decided to attend the Conservatorio “G. Verdi” courses in Milano because of his deep passion of music, and he took his graduation with honours under the educational-guide of the teacher C. Pastorelli. Besides piano lessons, Stefano attended successfully also musical compositions courses, and organo and clavicembalo practical lessons

During his post-graduation internship, he discovered his passion for teaching and it became part of his work as a musician. Stefano improved his teaching knowledge attending a professional biennale course at the Music Learning Theory by E.Gordon, focused on education; he improved his skills in piano-pedagogy with M. Loewe and he took a summer course focused on Kodaly methodology theory. Since 1998, besides piano-live performances and concerts, he runs his piano-lessons at the British School of Milan, where he takes care of his students constantly and with an unchanged passion.

The three most important things for a pianist are head, heart and fingers!
