Teacher Info

Simone Damiani enjoys a musical career as a pianist and piano teacher, pursuing a holistic approach to piano technique and utter sensitivity to producing a distinguished sound, described as “beautifully singing” by Vladimir Ovchinnikov.

Simone performed solo and chamber music across Europe in the UK, Italy, Belgium, Hungary, Switzerland and Sweden. In Budapest, he performed solo piano music by Ottorino Respighi and a selection of Arias from Italian Operas in 600 seats Sala Verdi at the Italian Institute of Culture. He performed as a soloist for two consecutive years in the “Corato International Piano Festival” (Italy) performing music by Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin, Scriabin and participated in the “Aurora Music Festival” in Sweden performing music by Chopin and Beethoven. 

Performing is at the core of Simone’s piano teaching principles: focusing on a deep understanding of music production, Simone’s pedagogical approach aims for effortless and enjoyable playing through the application of holistic principles and understanding of notation. Simone is a piano tutor at The Piano School, Coventry, at the same time as teaching privately, online and face to face, students in Italy, Belgium and the UK. His teaching also benefits from knowledge of Kodaly and Gordon methods.

Simone’s musical roots start in Italy with Valfrido Ferrari, but his musical education spreads across the UK, Hungary and Belgium: after completing his Bachelor studies with Robert Markham and Daniel Browell at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, he attended the Liszt Academy of Music as a Weingarten Scholar. In June 2020, Simone graduated with a Master Degree in the class of Polina Leschenko at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. At present, he is based in Birmingham, UK and he is attending an Advanced Postgraduate Diploma in performance at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with Robert Markham and Daniel Browell.

“I have recently decided to start learning the piano at the tender age of 44. I was a little apprehensive but Simone almost immediately made me feel at ease with his easy going manner and personable nature. Learning so far has been a fun and engaging experience. Although I am at the very beginning of the journey, some technique and musicality seems to have been learnt without too much conscious effort. This entirely down to his teaching style, where there is always method in the madness and I am learning without “learning”. His enthusiasm and passion is infectious. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher”
