Zeff on SoundBetter

I’m a full-time professional piano player, composer and music producer. I’ve worked in some on the most important recording studios in Italy and I’ve had the pleasure to work with hundreds of artists, inside and outside the platform.

In my 18 years of experience I've studied in multiple prestigious music school like the ''G. Rossini'' Conservatory in Pesaro and the Music Accademy in Italy, in Pinerolo.

Even if my training was Classical, in the last 8 years I've started studying all genres of music, from NeoClassical (like Yiruma or Arnalds) to Pop music. I've also had a bit of Jazz training. You can ask me anything you have in mind!

I’ll deliver:
-Professional piano recording
-Up to 96 kHz 24-bit
-Both Raw track and one with a bit of Pre-Mix (for free) so you can directly import it in your DAW
-I can use my professional keyboard to also deliver a MIDI file
-Unlimited revisions (if they are coherent with the original request)
-Sheet music (as extra)
-Commercial right (as extra)

I offer a lot more services, to know them all you just need to send me a message!

    Zeff and I have been working on a very large project involving 22 compositions. As usual Zeff has delivered beyond my expecations. He plays piano with great precison and feeling. He has my highest recommendation.

  17. Review by Alexander R Adams

    I have worked with Zeff on several projects and he has consistently delivered wonderful musically expressive and technically proficient performances. This last piece was very complex and demanded a lot from the pianist but Zeff had no problem bringing the music to life. He is also very kind and patient and willing to make adjustments to the recording as needed. Such a great musician to work with, would highly recommend!

  18. Review by Max
    by Max

    Zeff seemed like a great fit for my job, which was a recording of a somewhat complicated piece for a hip-hop track. Unfortunately, without much indication he was going to do so, he spent many weeks re-writing elements of the piano track. When I indicated this wasn't what we asked or paid for, he was hasty to fix it and re-record the piano. Unfortunately, he seemed to have some kind of issue interpreting the music I sent him, because he never was able to play the entire song correctly.

  19. Review by Jeffrey B.

    A pleasure working with Zeff for the first time. A great musician, good communication and a gentleman.

  20. Review by Tony H.

    good job~!!!

Interview with Zeff

  1. Q: What's your typical work process?

  2. A: At the beginning of every project i kust study the piece. I print the sheet music and i note everything i need, fingering, dynamics, even the atmosphere i wanna recreate and i really focus on the interpretation. When i feel confidend i'm gonna produce a good performance i record everything. I try to listen to the recording the day after, so i have 'fresh ears' and i can edit a bit the recording (add some reverb, a bit of EQ ecc ecc)

  3. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  4. A: I studied classical piano for 17 years, before in an Academy and i graduated from one of the most prestigious Conservatory in Italy, so i bring to a song a really crisp and clean sound, and a great attention to details, in the dynamics and the phrasing of the piece

  5. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  6. A: The musician that ispires me the most is definitely Olafur Arnalds. I love his soft and deep sound, and his simple but really beautiful and interesting melodies. I try to recreate that atmosphere when i play

  7. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  8. A: I generally record my client's composition, i follow them step by step so i can perfectly understand the feel they want for the piece, and i record as many times as it takes so they can have the best product (but 90% of the timeafter the first revision the project can be considered complete)

Chopin, Scherzo n.1

I was the piano player in this production

Terms Of Service
