"I had thought from the original video that Arianna was just an innocent schoolgirl playing music for a bit of fun. After talking to her by email I realise she is a mature and dedicated young lady and fully committed to going on to a professional career and to take her studies further in a formal musical education".

"Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson sent me this link today of Arianna De Lucrezia, a 16 year old Italian bassist, an how she is occupying her time in the Covid19 era.
Dave Goodier, Tull's bassist for many years (after I did it) made this transcription of what I played on the album, but Arianna brought it to life for me... and she can READ! Berklee Bound I HOPE… I am extremely honored by her taking the time to make this so good!!"
Steve BaileyBerklee College of Music - Chair of Bass Department
"I am the musical director for the Berklee college of music summer programs "Rock Workshop". The students that participate in this class are chosen by submitting video auditions. When I first saw Arianna's video I knew right then no other Bass player will even come close to her performance. She certainly did not disappoint, musically, personally or professionally. A real star in the making".
