Titus playing is rooted in Jazz but with an eye on contemporary neo soul, R&B, fusion and blues.
Passionate about music Titus started playing classical guitar at around the age of 9 and it wasn't long before he discovered the electric guitar.
Throughout the years he always had great deal of satisfaction in developing both his fingerpicking playing on the acoustic guitar and delving into electric guitar styles, combining the study of Jazz, Blues and Rock.
Active on stage since 1994 joining local bands and attending small festivals first in Italy and Europe, Titus had trips to USA from 1996 to 2015 and onwards to attend courses and seminars at MI, and for recording studio/live collaborations.
During his years in North East of Italy, He had the opportunity to deepen his knowledge of Blues and Jazz at CAMM and got involved in some interesting bands touring too.
In London Titus committed himself to deepen the study of Jazz, Composition, Performance and Production at LCCM Uni ( University of Middlesex / Open University ) , achieving a BA (with Honours).
LCCM London and NYC gave him the chance to do workshops masterclasses and courses with a plethora of renowned mentors such as : Pianist Maestro Barry Harris, Peter Bernstein, Mike Stern, Guthrie Govan and more.
Aside from that in 2016 he successfully completed a Jazz Improvisation course at Berklee online, mastered by renowned pianist Gary Burton.
London now remains Titus home and he's busy dedicating himself to several live/studio projects : Titus Maz Quartet , Music of The Soul Live Band, Unmuted Live sessions, Baby Powder, Measures Quartet, TECO and many other collabs with singers and artists such as Valntna, Mikyla, Natalie C, Hannah Mei, Wezi, Ace Motif, Siobhan , Ammuin Orchestra, Cong-Fusion band plus solo work.

TITUS MAZ & AMMUIN ORCHESTRA Collaboration on single " Fà Addò Và! ( tu ce pienze maje ) " IRMA Records
I collaborate with various UK and international studios and record labels but I also have my personal studio based around a PRO-TOOLS DAW + RME Audio Interfaces + Amps and Mics so I'm able to record acoustic / electric guitar in any style, produce records and assist in the production from editing to mastering.
I am constantly working on albums and recording either remotely ( from my studio ) or physically in studios.
