Ensemble music, among instrumental specialities, is that which has suffered the most during the rule of distancing caused by the pandemic. This little collection of ensemble compositions for guitar is a proof of the rebirth of the many groups which are again making music in our school classrooms, with renewed joy and enthusiasm. Here are ten pieces to show what I mean by ensemble music, at least in the early years of study. They are relatively simple, easy to read and written so as to be played after a couple of lessons, with melodies and rhythms alternating between the parts and titles which immediately evoke the content of the piece. Above all, the idea is to play together right from the first lessons with particular attention paid to listening to each other, to keeping to one’s role within the general context both during a Night Blues and enjoying a Reggae at breakfast!
There are no separate parts intentionally, first of all because they are pieces which are only one or two pages long and, furthermore, I feel it is useful for a pupil to have all the parts in front of him in order to follow the development of the piece better in every section.
All that remains for me is to wish students and colleagues well if they choose to use this new work of mine, hoping that it can provide extra encouragement to study this wonderful instrument of ours.

Born in 1962 in Cuneo, Giorgio Signorile began studying guitar at the local Conservatory, first with Pino Briasco and later with Paul Manzo, graduating in 1986 with honors. He subsequently worked with Betho Davezac and Leo Brouwer and started appearing as a soloist and in chamber music groups. During this period he was particularly dedicated to contemporary music performing with L'Assieme Chitarristico Italiano and recording two CDs on the Dynamic and l'Olandese Etcetera labels.
Inspired by his travels, he began composing for guitar. After a success at the composition competition "Suoni Nuovi 2007", he began collaborations with publishers such as Zedde, Sinfonica and especially Ut Orpheus creating music, both educational and professional in nature, for solo guitar and flute/guitar duo. His works have been performed in recent times by several well-known artists and ensembles - Giulio Tampalini (Strong emotions), Lucio Matarazzo (LM and friends) and Giorgio Mirto (Notturni).
His most recent CD ‘Reflessi’ (Reflections), produced by CNI Music in Rome, is a collection of works for solo guitar published in recent years by Ut Orpheus.
Since 2013 he has served as an official endorser for Aquila Corde Armoniche.
He considers teaching an important part of his work as a musician, a comparison between two realities, a dialogue where respect and knowledge are exchanged and interact, creating culture, risk, interest and mutual growth.
