Born in 1979 in Brussels, Salvatore Gioveni studied at the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles, Conservatoire royal de Mons and at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel. He was awarded five 1st prizes: solfeggio, organ, harmony, practical harmony and the final musical analysis certificate, all magna cum laude. He completed his training with a Master’s Degree in Music Theory, specializing in the counterpoint and fugue, and with three teaching diplomas: the AESS Musique (specializing in harmony and analysis), a teaching diploma in organ and musical training.
His career as a concert musician has enabled him to perform at various international baroque music and organ festivals both as an organ and harpsichord soloist and continuo player.
He has been a full-time Musical Analysis/Writing teaching assistant at the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles.
President of the Professor’s Team Association (ucpcrb) since 2012, he has successfully completed several projects with the help of his Committee. This association stays very actively involved in festive and militant activities.

He serves as an Administrator in the Conservatory’s Heritage Commission and its Social and Concerts councils. He is a member of the Commission for the recognition of useful experience and notoriety under the Ministry of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
He has also been a full professor and has taught several courses in various Brussels Music School: computer-assisted music, organ, musical analysis and musical training. He has also taught choral singing.
He was the head-organist of the Schyven organ (1884) at the Royal Parish of Saint-Jacques-sur-Coudenberg from 2000 to 2009 and he remains an active liturgical organist as head-organist of the Madeleine Church in Brussels.
Finally, his years of pedagogical research in the teaching of harmony in higher education institutions have led to him successfully publishing the Précis d'harmonie tonale at Editions Delatour, Paris in 2017, referenced in the A.B.E.S. in France:
We’d need far more than a few lines to express how highly we think of this work. Besides the fact that its design makes for an enjoyable reading and study experience, the content also truly fulfills one’s expectations about such a treaty: the harmony’s first and foremost musical intent. The examples are very well chosen and explained and easy to understand, the progression is both logical and historical, in short, we can only advise everyone to use this volume and consume it without moderation. It’s a delight!

His work and his pedagogical qualities enable him to give Master Classes and lectures at other Conservatories: Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali "Rinaldo Franci" di Siena and the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música "Victoria Eugenia" of Granada. He has founded and organized the European Harma project (harma.eu.com) and regularly travels abroad to establish new exchanges projects.
