Arianna, born in 1996, began to study the flute at the age of nine at the music school of her hometown and later on at the age of ten she was accepted as a child student at the Conservatory G. Nicolini of Piacenza, Italy. There she studied under the guide of Prof. Daniela Subitoni until she received the traditional diploma at the age of seventeen, and then three years later, thanks to the teachings of Prof. Vincenzo Gallo, she obtained her first master degree with full marks 110/110 cum laude.

In September 2017 she decided to improve her competences, challenging herself on an international scenario, therefore she moved to Brussels, where she was accepted as Bachelor student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel in the class of Prof. Frank Hendrickx. Later on she continued her Master studies in the class of the great Prof. Carlos Bruneel, first flute of Brussels Opera Theater La Monnaie.

During her studies in Belgium she got the opportunity to do an Erasmus Exchange to Saarbrücken in Germany, at the Hochschule für Musik Saar, where she could learn from the amazing Prof. Gaby Pas-Van Riet, former flutist of SWR Orchester. In June 2022 she got her master degree with great distinction.

From September 2022 on, she will continue studying at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels as a piccolo player with Prof. Katlijn Sergeant, piccolist of the Swedish Malmö Symphony Orchestra.

Arianna got the opportunity to play in various orchestras as first flute together with great conductors and soloists, like Jukka Pekka-Saraste, Leonidas Kavakos and Elisabeth Leonskaja.

She works regularly with the Belgian Orchestra Speranza Symphonic, and she regularly performs chamber music concerts with her quartet Celadon Project.

From 2015 to 2017 she had her first teaching experience as a class assistant of her former flute teacher Vincenzo Gallo at the Conservatory of Piacenza and afterward she received her Italian Certificate of Teaching Ability, after having successfully done exams in the field of Pedagogy and Learning Psychology.

Once she moved to Brussels she kept teaching to many private students and from September 2021 to June 2022 she was appointed flute teacher in a private music school in Waterloo.

Arianna has always had a passion for teaching, as she finds motivating, challenging and fulfilling to pass on the knowledge and the joy of music to others, cultivating her creativity, and improving as well her practice and study as a musician, with compassion, enthusiasm, and experience, bringing a positive contribution to the school and to the student community.

“Infinite patience produces immediate results.” It sounds like a paradox, doesn’t it? Infinite patience implies an absolute certainty that what you’d like to manifest will indeed show up, in perfect order, and exactly on time. The immediate result you receive from this inner knowing is a sense of peace. When you detach from the outcome, you’re at peace, and you’ll ultimately see the fruits of your convictions.” ― Wayne W. Dyer
