Gabriele Braga

Piano & Theory

Gabriele was born in Genoa, Italy, and at the age of six he began studying music theory at the urging of his mother (a guitar teacher and choir director). He began studying the violin at the age of eight and piano at the age of twelve. At the age of thirteen he won the prestigious regional music competition, Virginia Centurione.

During his years of study, he collaborated with the orchestra of the Niccolò Paganini Conservatory in Genoa and with the orchestra of the Federico Ghedini Conservatory in Cuneo. Gabriele graduated from the Federico Ghedini Conservatory with a degree in performance and instrumental teaching, and since his early twenties he has taught violin and piano in a number of music schools and academies, both in Italy and in Ireland. Although he loves performing, teaching is his passion.
