I have been following Alessio Menconi for many years and I have been studying with him in his online school for about 1 year. Alessio is very organized for this type of educational offer and the lesson is recorded so that it can be resumed later without losing any detail. The topics are personalized and Alessio has a great ability to understand which are the concepts on which I have to work more, the one that comes out more easily and is able to adapt and finalize the exercises effectively. Furthermore Alessio and the trio Bobo (which I love) have been a source of inspiration for some projects and songs born over the years.
Listening to Alessio play it is immediately evident how much care and research he puts into each note. The same qualities that he also brings back to him in teaching, and that above all he is able to transmit to the students. Attention to detail, never be superficial in studying, playing, teaching ...
Alessio's method gave me the opportunity to enter the world of jazz and fusion by focusing on the importance of reading, harmonic analysis and improvisation. A challenging but at the same time very stimulating path!
Alessio besides being one of the best jazz guitarists around, with a sound and phrasing that have nothing to envy to the great masters from overseas, he is also an excellent and passionate teacher. His complete command of the instrument and harmonic knowledge, combined with his humor make him the teacher that everyone would like.
The choice to have Alessio Menconi as a teacher was successful because in addition to proving to be a highly trained mentor and it is not so obvious that an internationally renowned musician is also good at transmitting his skills to the students.
Alessio is a precious teacher. He is very talented, has played all over the world with great musicians and has high level teaching skills. He helped me to grow a lot not only as a guitarist, but also as a musician, providing me with important interpretations of the musical world.
