Massimiliano Facchini I Claudette Munné

“Belle Arti” Center for the Arts is under the direction of two internationally renowned concert pianists, husband and wife Massimiliano Facchini and Claudette Munné, who offer the best of the Old World and the best of the New World as teachers and artists. Through their teaching, students have been accepted at specialized arts high schools and major conservatories in New York i.e., the Pre-College Division at Manhattan School of Music and The Juilliard School, La Guardia High School and Brooklyn College. As was stated in recent interviews on NBC’s “Today Show in New York” and UNIVISION, prior to a sold–out concert at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, “Music will always be a way of expressing feelings and emotions. Especially in our time, it is important to have a means of expression, like music, that helps to bring people together.”

That sentiment was echoed by AMERICA OGGI USA in its concert review, stating “Massimiliano Facchini and Claudette Munné, as artists, are a team that is able to give life to music with energy, emotion and experience. Music represents for them a language, a combination of sounds that passes the horizons of everyday and reaches unexplored depths.”

Maestro Facchini especially enjoys sharing his music knowledge and talent with students of all ages, skills and backgrounds. He takes pride that his students have been accepted at specialized arts high schools and major conservatories in New York such as the Pre-College Division at Manhattan School of Music and The Juilliard School, La Guardia High School and Brooklyn College. Massimiliano Facchini is currently Artistic Director and faculty member at “Belle Arti” Center for the Arts, the first and only music school of European heritage in Forest Hills, New York.
