Mistheria begins his music studies at seven, thanks to my father's passion and the tuition of the family’s friend and composer/accordionist M° Marco Aurelio Pisegna. I studied Accordion, Piano, Keyboards, Harmony, Theory and Solfeggio. Afterwards, he graduated, with full score, in "Organ and Organ Composition" at Music Conservatory "A. Casella" (L’Aquila - Italy) under the guidance of teacher Annamaria Polcaro and Paolo Cerasoli.
He also studied “Solfeggio and Theory of Music” with teacher Laura Bianchini, "Electronic Composition", "Computer Music" and "Experimental Composition" with M° Alessandro Sbordoni, "Electronic Music, MIDI, Digital Audio" with M° Michelangelo Lupone, "History of Music" with M° Pietro Acquafredda, "Counterpoint and Fugue" with M° Paolo Cerasoli, "Gregorian Chant and Organ Improvisation" with M° Giandomenico Piermarini.
