Right from his earliest years Danilo Manto has always taught the piano.

In over 35 years of teaching experience he has evolved a special and innovative way of teaching, blending the rigour of the Italian system with the flexibility of the British one.

This has produced a method that is concise, efficient, rapid and extremely progressive in its application to each student.

The result has been an extraordinary rate of progress in his students, who in very little time, are able to achieve outstanding results.
