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.

... These seem like they were written to a didactic brief, exploring open strings, simple arpeggiations, alternating-thumb basses and simple ligados, and needing good ensemble listening-skills and a fair dynamic control. ... The presentation is immaculate and the fonts all come off the page beautifully. If you do not possess elementary duets for your students, then this is a suitable place to start. ... (Colin Tommis)
