She started studying Piano from a very early age and graduated with top marks cum laude at the Conservatory where she lived, in Sassari, and then went on to study at the Ecole Normale de Musique “Alfred Cortot” in Paris and the Roman Academy of Music. She also gained a diploma in Choral Music and Choral Conduction at the Sassari Conservatory in 1999, and a further diploma with Maestro Riccardo Dapelo in 2001 in Composition with top marks. Her compositions have been highly appreciated in important events, performed by renowned maestros and gained a number of International Competition awards. In August 2010 she won her first overall award at the International Liszt competition for Piano Composers in Bellagio and in October 2011 she was invited to the University of Oldenburg to hold a Komponisten Colloquium on her works. Her works are characterised by the synthesis between the most avant-garde contemporary styles and the wealth of the traditional Sardinia music. She loves defining “contemporary music” as a “playing with sound” and feels she has a great affinity with the world of children, that primordial part of all of us that is made of love of sound, a need for sound… Among her recent works we find a book called “Sulle tracce dei suoni… prime esperienze sonore” for Infant and Primary Schools.
