Meet Giovanni

Giovanni Gargini

Hi, I'm Giovanni, rhythm facilitator of We ArtPlay.


As a teacher, I believe the arts are one of the finer means of communication in our human world. “Art and play” is one of the keys of a juvenile and harmonious life.


I am a conservatory-trained in jazz drummer, I play piano, I sing, and I am a teacher of Feldenkrais Method®️. My passion for music led me to “Body Music” (Body Percussion), which is how I teach rhythm to musical learners of all ages.


I am a full-time music teacher, and a professional performing musician in genres ranging from early jazz, pop, bossa nova, modern jazz, and lots of original music. I now perform with Smogz (Contemporary Jazz), Talking Ties (Jazz/Swing), the Gutbuckets (Ragtime, Dixieland and Blues) and The Twisters (Rock & Roll).


I look forward to jamming with you soon!


"Giovanni's Body Percussion online lessons had a very nice concept and graduation. He likes challenges, which were not missing in a single lesson. Every lesson was supported by a very catchy melody and very well done PDF materials."

Eliška Vondráček Horehleďová

"Seguire i corsi We Artplay, affiancati da eccellenti Maestri e Professionisti, sono una vera e propria opportunità di apprendere e/o perfezionare un nuovo modo di fare musica, scoprendo e affinando le proprie attitudini musicali e creando dei significativi percorsi personali e professionali."
