Filippo Dall’Asta is an Italian-born guitarist, composer, bandleader and arranger, mixing the sounds of Gypsy jazz with bebop and classical music, to forge his own style of progressive guitar playing.

He’s the founder of the Master Accelerator and Gypsy Jazz Guitar Makeover Coaching programs. Filippo began playing at the age of 5 in Parma, Italy, and studied music in his native country as well as Germany, France, Holland and India.

Career Highlights

In 2010, at the age of 23, he arrived in the UK, and toured and recorded with legends such as Stochelo Rosenberg, Mozes Rosenberg, Lollo Meier, Giacomo Smith, The Ayoub Sisters, Duved Dunayevsky, and contemporary musicians such as The Onironauts and Tara Minton (Björk) to name a few. 

His touring resume covers Germany, India, Italy, France, Spain, England, Malta and Russia, with notable appearances at The Royal Albert Hall, Glastonbury Festival, the House of Parliament, the Tower of London, the Union Chapel, and many festivals in France and Italy.

His debut solo album, ‘Mediterasian,’ was lauded by the LA Music Critic Awards as ‘one of the best instrumental albums of 2018.’

In 2020, for his side project “Gypsy Dynamite”, Filippo releases an album of 10 original songs fusing Gypsy Jazz, Bebop, Latin and Mediterranean melodies: “Cafe Dynamite”.

The album received several rave reviews amongst which “An irresistable and unforgettable charm” by Jazz Journal UK.

Over the years, while continuously (and quite obsessively) honing his guitar skills, he has learned how to effectively deal with the business side of the live music industry: becoming a performer and bandleader, promoting his work, gaining online visibility, and getting paid to play the big stages.

In addition to more than 18 years of teaching experience, about 2 years ago Filippo has started the Gypsy Jazz Guitar Master project as a means to replicate his tried and tested process with students.

Since then, he has helped dozens of students to become professional Gypsy Jazz guitarists, promote their work and get paid to play.

Filippo is currently based in Spain and is working on his next album “The Hot Club of Tenerife”, which will be released in October 2024.
