Living the reality of teaching for years, I have been required many times to find modern studies suited to work on specific technical difficulties, such as scales, arpeggios, legatos etc.
As a result, I tried to imagine a ‘sonorous world’ where these obstacles are mixed with pieces of classical, baroque, contemporary and pop inspiration, joining in this way two, maximum three, sheets of music, musical pleasure and the technical and mechanical efficacy.
These nine studies came about this way, written with the affection and competence that a teacher can have in suggesting solutions to his pupil and at the same time with the musical expression always directed towards an intimate and personal style of performance.
I wanted to entitle these compositions ‘studies’ in order to point out that the development of technique should always be combined with the search for musicality, in the execution of the phrases, in the development of the melody and of the harmony: they are worlds which must coexist.
I hope this work of mine will contribute in bringing them closer, with serenity, interest and curiosity.

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.

Here we have another interesting collection of solo guitar studies by a contemporary Italian author ...

Seicorde (ottobre-dicembre 2009)
... Sulle ali di un accordo di Giorgio Signorile nasce dalla necessità di avere studi moderni capaci di unire alle specifiche tecniche qualità musicali più vicine al sentire degli allievi di oggi. Il compositore cuneese, quindi, ha immaginato un persorso sonoro eclettico, passando da momenti barocchi a classici, da immagini musicali derivate dal pop a quelle della tradizione country, restando tuttavia sempre coerente al suo pensiero musicale ...
