Flavia Messinese

Born in Sicily (Italy) in November 1994, she knows the guitar thanks to the neighborhood parish, learning there the first chords but soon losing interest in the instrument.

After finishing high school she joined the Army and later entered special departments at the “Brigata Alpina Taurinense”; during this particularly intense period the desire to play came back (or was born).

It is the knowledge of the master Luca Galeano who, after encouraging her not to worry about age, makes her take the decision to abandon the military career. In 2015, start a musical study path at the CESM (Centro Etneo Studi Musicali).

After 2 years, in 2017 she passes the admission tests on jazz guitar at the "T. Schipa" conservatory in Lecce where will be followed by maestro Nicola Cordisco.

In 2018 she passed the 8-lv exam in Pop & Rock guitar at the Trinity College of Music.

In the same year she attended the courses of Umbria Jazz winning a scholarship at the end of the course at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

After applying as an Erasmus student and having been chosen by several European conservatories, in September she moved to Germany to continue her studies in jazz guitar in the JRP department at the "Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien" in Hannover.

In November she participated in a contest held by Sony Germany and was selected along with 5 other musicians throughout Germany to participate in the "Play by Dave Grohl" project in collaboration with the Foo Fighters.

In March 2019 she was summoned to Berlin for the project "Gay Guerrilla by J. Eastman" with 15 other European musicians performing at the Schinkel Pavillon.

In the same period she obtained a scholarship at the BIMM in Berlin.

She currently lives in Lecce where she attends the third year of the three-year jazz and collaborates with local musicians.
