About Me

My students have done amazing things, including everything from singing a lead role in a show to conquering stage fright to rocking as lead singer with a band to sparkling in recitals... and nothing makes me happier than watching them succeed!

I'm a young performer who loves singing, playing piano, dancing, acting, and being onstage! I've studied voice, opera, piano, and performance skills in America, Paris, and Italy. I am now working on my PhD in Musicology at the University of North Texas, and I'm looking forward to teaching students here!

I earned my BA in Music (Piano/Voice/Organ) and my Masters in Vocal Performance from the University of Minnesota Duluth, where I received my training in vocal- and piano pedagogy. I also spent three and a half years in Europe studying and performing in conservatories. I love foreign languages, and I speak French, Italian, Spanish, and Turkish, and now I'm learning German. I've had specialized training in singing in foreign languages, which opens up a whole world of music for me and my students!

My opera performances in the last few years have included the following full roles:
Inez from Il trovatore
Frasquita from Carmen
Cherubino from Le nozze di Figaro
Giannetta from L'elisir d'amore
I've also performed opera scenes, art song, musical theater, and sacred music.

I also produced Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance with a cast of young singers ages 8-18, and after just 1 month of rehearsals and voice coachings, my students sang music from the classic operetta just like professionals... even my 8-year-old soloists charmed the audience with their moment in the spotlight!

If you're looking for a teacher who will make you top priority, work tirelessly to make sure you get what you're looking for out of lessons, and always be willing to listen, I can't wait to meet you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that students learn better when lessons and practice time are fun! Whether your goals include singing/playing for fun at home, performing in competitions, preparing for college level music study, or just learning to perform like a star onstage, we can work together to choose music that you'll love. I incorporate a little of everything in lessons: performance, music reading, sight reading, musicality, and theory. We work together to set practice goals that will help you make progress, but that fit with your schedule and keep learning fun. I'm always open to requests and questions!

My teaching strategy is to respond to your learning style and move at your pace, getting the most out of each lesson and your practice time. Being a strong performer is about dedication, loving what you're doing, and working smarter (not harder) to get maximum benefits from your practice time.

In 3 to 6 months, you can expect to be reading musical notation, on the road to healthy performing technique, and excited to play or sing your new repertoire for your friends!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a piano or keyboard (including voice students). A CD player (or speakers for an iPod) is helpful but not required.

Italian, Italian Cooking

About Me

My name is Massimo, I was born and I spent all my life in Italy since I moved, three year ago in US with my family for a new great adventure. I am so enthusiastic to be able to share with you the knowledge of the language of the greatest poets and writers, knowledge of one of the most beautiful country in the world, rich of history and art, and why not share "in Italian" some of the most terrific recipes for the most refined palate.

The classes in Italian cuisine are tailored to your interests and your skill level. I can teach you how to prepare a "quick win" dinner for all the family or to prepare "single size" amazing meals ready for all the week. I can teach how to make handmade pasta with semolina or with whole wheat. Have you ever tasted a terrific Tiramisu...with strawberries?

How I understand I can be a good Italian tutor, patient, helpful and always ready to arouse the attention of my students? My youngest son, Vietnamese, is the best proof of my skill. He was able to speak a really good Italian in less than three months. Then I found to be "good" with adults as well. I started to teach Italian to some friends and after to friends of friends .... and it worked again!

Key word? Talk, watch, read, listen and talk again!
I am aware the Italian has one of the most complex grammars, but I also know that speaking and reading and watching Italian movies, soccer game or Television News makes automatic to learn the basic rules useful for a good conversation. We can use a really simple grammar book to support with the basic rules up to more advanced grammar books if we may need.

My tutoring approach is focus on student's weaknesses and strengths: use the seconds to correct the firsts. What it is important is to work on what you really like (movie, politics, receipts, actors, history, vacations, ...) and I promise it works. I already experienced this approach with a lot of students and friends who want to speak Italian and know Italy ...waiting for a great vacation "nel Bel Paese".
I try to be flexible with time and I offer makeup classes in case of 24 hours cancellation. I have an quite full equipped office at home but I am available to travel if it is more convenient for the students.
I hope see you soon.. A presto!!

About Me

I provide professional customized tutoring with guaranteed results to kids and adults (Age 15 - adult). I use a creative and effective approach working with the student to pinpoint exactly how to master the subject. I was born in Italy and moved to the States 15 years ago. I have a degree in Italian history and culture (Pisa University ITALY), a Master's Degree in Project Management (George Washington University) and a B.A. in Electrical Engineering (Istituto Tecnico Industiale A. Righi ITALY). I have been teaching Italian for many years to students of different ages and for various scopes, such as: to get students up to speed in order to spend a university semester in Italy, to introduce middle and high school kids to a new language, to get up to speed adults who want to gain a comfortable knowledge when they travel in Italy or to university students who want to become proficient in order to attend an Italian university. I teach Italian also at the Community Education on a yearly basis and at the Italian Cultural Center in Minneapolis.

5 years of teaching experience.
I held the Louisiana state record for the 50 meter freestyle (1981,2?), and was on 4 relays teams that achieved top ten in the country (1981,82,83). I still swim quite a bit today, train for strength, practice yoga and stretching.
