I am Osman Meyredi, originally Italian but now living in Amsterdam.
I am a musician multi-instrumentalist with a master's degree in double bass.
Music is more than a passion, it's the reason to live...
It all began very early, playing the piano from the age of six: after hearing the songs I could play them instantly, without sheet music. My heart opened to the music.
After a short period during which I played saxophone and clarinet, I began to play percussions and drums in a marching band. A few years later I also began to study guitar by myself.
In 2002 I was admitted to the conservatory of Trento (IT) and in 2009 I got my master's degree in double bass.
In August 2018 I was admitted to the "Music in Education" program at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
After my studies in Italy, I worked as a teacher: for four years I have been working in several educational institutions, including "Istituto comprensivo del Chiese", "Istituto comprensivo di Tione" (secondary school – musical education/music theory) and "Scuola Musicale Giudicarie" (music school – double bass, bass guitar, and guitar).
From January 2019 I started working at the international school DENISE " De Nieuwe Internationale School Esprit" in Amsterdam.
A turning point came in July 2014, when I decided to move to Amsterdam, a choice that opened a new horizon for me. This change gave me the opportunity to get acquainted with the multicultural music scene.
Here in the Netherlands, I perform in places such as Paradiso, Bourbon Street, Waterhole, De Heeren van Aemstel and I also have experience in international touring.
I am also working as a session musician and I play different kinds of music: classical, jazz, fusion, blues, pop, rock and electronic.
Last but not least, I give private lessons and I compose my own music.
