Both a violin and a viola performer, Manuela Matis studied violin under the guidance of Camillo Grasso and Maja Ioconovich, and viola with Armando Burattin and Reiner Schmidt. She later completed a three-year advanced course in chamber music and was eventually awarded a diploma in chamber music from the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, under Felix Ayo. In 2009-2010, she performed twice the entire corpus of Sonatas for violin and piano by Ludwig van Beethoven, in duo with pianist Alberto Magagni.

She explored violin pedagogy under the guidance of Enzo Porta at the Music School in Fiesole, and she has recently been exploring the baroque violin with Renata Spotti. After winning a national competition, she was awarded a tenured professorship in chamber music at the Conservatory Monteverdi in Bozen, and has since been involved in projects dedicated to R. Schumann, F. Busoni and to twentieth century’s composers, thus performing in various ensembles, from duos to quintets. In 2013, she performed the entire corpus of the Suites BWV 1007-1012 by J. S. Bach for viola solo. Since 1999 she has been teaching advanced courses and master classes in Italy and abroad.
