I work on a wide variety of genres, spanning from Pop to Jazz, Classical, Soul, Rock, Funk, Gospel, New Age, Country, Blues, Hip-Hop, etc.

I am comfortable reading music and improvising.
If you do not have a music chart to send me, no problem! I can transcribe the song or play it by ear.

    I keep coming back to Emanuele to record my piano track because the price is competitive and his work is outstanding. E. only took 1 day to complete the track without charging more for it.
