WHEN AND HOW DID YOU START PLAYING YOUR INSTRUMENT:
At the very beginning I hated play music and musical instruments, as a child I thought it was “gay stuff”, even if I had good sense of rhythm and melody ahahahahahah!
I enjoyed composing melodies in my mind even without understand why.
At the age of 11 I started to study piano, first reluctantly, but then it introduced me to the wonders of music and I became a real addicted!
From then on it has been a succession of experiences in music that led me to piano academy “Cem Lira” in Parma for 5 years, and then at the age of 14 to electric guitar, which I learned by myself.
