Since January 2015, he has held the position of Professor of Orchestral Studies at the “A. Corelli” Conservatoire in Messina, Italy.

Bruno Cinquegrani is not only a master musician and conductor, but also a patient, generous and extremely encouraging teacher.

Maestro Cinquegrani’s strength as a teacher of conducting rests on his technical expertise—a mastery of how gestures convey musical meaning. He rapidly assesses a student’s strengths and weaknesses, without fail targeting what aspect of technique most needs attention right now. Above all, his teaching is student-centred: in word and deed he conveys the message that conducting is not some mystical activity reserved for the chosen few, but something we are all capable of. Bruno focuses not on how much he knows but on what will help student (even novice) conductors more effectively express their musical intentions. He is a natural teacher.

Bruno is a great teacher as well as a great conductor. He was not afraid to correct mistakes to make sure we learned properly instead of letting our mistakes fester.
