Enrico graduated from the Bonporti Conservatory in Trento and brings with him a wealth of musical and educational experience that he is passionate about sharing with aspiring musicians. He began his musical journey at the age of four and while training as a musician, won a number of national and international competitions and was twice invited to perform at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.
His role as a music educator has been diverse. Enrico has taught at the Tartini Conservatory in Trieste as a lecturer in keyboard accompaniment. His work as a music academic also resulted in collaborations with the Teatro degli Asinelli Drama Company and stints as a composer and teacher of harmony. In 2003, Enrico decided to pursue a career as a music teacher in international schools moving first to Kuwait and then to Hong Kong where he has spent the last twelve years.
He is excited to continue enriching the academic components of the music programme at NAIS and is particularly excited about the collaboration with Juilliard, one of the world’s leading conservatories. He believes this collaboration has enormous potential to encourage classroom engagement and musical literacy.
As choral music is one of his specialities, Enrico hopes to build upon the rich choral tradition of the school. While in Hong Kong, he accompanied the Welsh Male Voice Choir for over 40 concerts, and was recorded on a CD in honour of the choir’s 30th anniversary. He also performed with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Chorus and collaborated with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Oratorio Society and other institutions.
As a versatile music educator, Enrico will also contribute to the instrumental ensembles. His experience as an instrumentalist and soloist includes performing with numerous chamber ensembles and an exploration of jazz music.
