About Me

I started to play bass when I was 16 and began my formal studies at the age of 18 in my native country Italy. In 2004 I moved to The Netherlands to complete my studies in the Royal Conservatory of The Hague with a Bachelor and Master degree in jazz double bass. Since then, I am fully booked with live playing and teaching. This is my one and only occupation. During all these years I have earned a lot of experience which is very supporting when it comes to teaching my students.

He's the best!

I started bass lessons during the covid lockdown as a complete beginner. And a few lessons later I could already jam along with some tunes of my favorite bands. Luciano is a professional musician and an excellent teacher. He is very knowledgeable about music and the theory behind it. He's patient and he makes you feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend Luciano to anyone out there who wants to learn more about the bass. He's the best!

I can certainly advise him!

What can I say : I started 55 years too late to learn how to play the bass guitar, so much fun. At the age of 65 my children fulfilled a long time wish of me : learning how to play bass guitar. They found Luciano Poli at Vivaldi Music Lessons to help me. Our first appointment was very pleasant and Luciano took his time to do a good inventory of my skills and knowledge of music. ( which was zero ) We started from scratch with a lot of patience, explanation and showing how to do the basic handling of the guitar. Luciano is a good teacher and one who understands his pupil. I can certainly advise him if you are a beginner with zero experience and in need for a teacher who really helps you in keeping fun playing with the bass guitar.
