Giovanni Candia

Giovanni Candia approaches the study of guitar all’età di dieci anni. L’iniziale interesse per il blues si tramuta presto in una forte passione per il jazz, genere musicale che approfondisce al Saint Louis College of Music di Roma, seguendo dapprima il percorso di diploma tradizionale e successivamente il triennio jazz.

After completing his three-year academic studies at Saint Louis, he obtained a second cycle academic diploma in jazz guitar at “Santa Cecilia” Conservatory of Music in Rome. Contemporarily to his musical training, he obtained a first and second level degree in Communication Sciences at the Pontificia Salesiana University in Rome.

He has performed in numerous music exhibitions both in Italy and abroad. In 2019 he released "Terra Tranquilla", the first record of the Scape quartet, where he appears both as a guitarist and as a composer, arranger and producer. He is actively involved in original musical projects, both as a guitarist and as a composer and producer.

Always strongly interested in music teaching, since 2015 he has been teaching at Saint Louis College of Music, where he holds disciplinary areas such as ear training, music theory, harmony studies and guitar workshops. He is strongly active in international interchange and cooperation projects related to the activity of Saint Louis.

Ha fatto parte di diverse giurie tecniche sia in Italia che all’estero (European Jazz Contest, ISMEZ Music Live, B-Jazz International Contest), Panico, Stufano e Candia.
