the master's advice

In my musical life, I have never set goals or limits. Anything can be achieved, the important thing is to believe in it and work hard. To do this, it is essential to undertake a serious study of the instrument and music, naturally drawing on all that the teachings of the past can give us, the techniques, classical studies, listening, harmony, composition. So first and foremost be hungry for knowledge, all of life. But at the same time, we must not lose sight of developing our own tastes, personality, our inner notes, our sound, and focus all our work on bringing out these fundamental components of our being musicians. 

Here, my video course will show you how I worked and how I continue to work more because a musician is not a musician if he stops.

Evolution always continues until the end.
This is my story."

Dario Deidda,  was born in Salerno to a middle school teacher mother and a father employed in the province, both passionate about music, he until it became a reason for living, a perpetual emotional and evocative flow, despite having chosen, probably for the culture of epoch, and for family education, a more secure employment.
Dario is the third of four children, and was born in a context where music is already at home.
His parents had met precisely because of a common love for songs and sonatas, then shared in the parish.
Music, therefore, was not a danger, on the contrary, a vocation, a mission to be carried out with care, devotion, sacredness, otherwise it would be better to leave it alone.
The result is that all the young Deiddas were passionate about music, three out of four chose to make it a profession (Sandro Deidda saxophonist and Alfonso Deidda saxophonist and pianist), never relegated to the purely remunerative field of work, but more to the artistic one, in a projection that could make themselves more and more worthy of such a courtly road and close to the essence of beauty.
