Meet the Teacher | Composition

Our music composition teacher, Apollonio Maiello.

Apollonio Maiello teaches music composition classes 1-on-1 online here at MusicTutorOnline.

“During my lessons, I help every single student to achieve their ideals in music. Whilst finding out where their passion in music composition lies I mentor them in their creative journey by asking questions, analyzing their compositions and whenever necessary diving deep into other composers' work. Together we discover the students' own individual voice. I encourage them to be proactive and engage in constructive and critical discussions about music composition and therefore getting closer to their goals one step at a time.’’
