STEFANIA SURACE

My name is Stefania Surace. I was born in Reggio Calabria on July 27th 1976 and I lived in Calabria until the age of 18, when I moved to Rome. I studied piano (classical music) as a child until I was a teenager. I later took a break from my music studies and applied to the University in Rome (LUISS "Guido Carli"). Four years after that, I graduated in Political Science after which I moved to Belgium because I received a scholarship for a Master's Degree at the College of Europe in Bruges. I successfully followed the postgraduate programme of European Political and Administrative Studies and then returned back to Italy where I began working as an online journalist and a researcher in economic and social matters. I soon discovered these fields were not my true passion, so I went back to the music.

At the age of 27 I bought a new piano and started playing and studying classical music again. I also began to compose my own music. At that time, I had no idea about harmony and composition: I did not even write music scores. At night, I often dreamt about my own compositions and then, in the morning, reproduced them on the piano and recorded them. Sometimes exactely as I had dreamed. Other times with little variations which always come spontaneousely, like improvisations. With 18 pieces completed, I prepared my first cd ("Segnali dalle nuvole" - Signs from the clouds). Then, after four years, I put 18 more pieces in a second work ("Tracce di sogno alla luce del giorno" - Traces of dreams at the light of day). Meanwhile I have learned how to write music scores, so I can protect them through the SIAE (the Italian artists copyright association).

After the certificate in Music Theory and Solfège at the Conservatoire "Santa Cecilia" of Rome, in 2011 I passed the exam to obtain the Diploma of "Compimento inferiore", issued by the Conservatoire "Perosi" of Campobasso, after successfully completing a five-years study programme. In September 2012, at the "Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali G. Briccialdi" of Terni, I was accepted as a regular student to follow the programme of the Academic Diploma (Degree - Ist level).
