She has been a featured artist at the Etruria Opera Festival in Tarquinia and the Tuscia Opera Festival in Italy from 2009 to 2017 as well as performing recitals and concerts in the Southern California area. In November of 2014, Rebecca organized and performed in the Suor Angelica Project, a fundraiser for the San Diego Opera. This collaboration with the San Diego Symphony and members of the San Diego Opera Chorus raised over $7500 for the Opera.

Since 2009. Rebecca

She has also sung concerts and recitals in New York City, London, Edinburgh, and various cities in Italy as well as locally here in California and Florida. Rebecca received her Bachelor in Music degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. She is currently working on her Masters thesis for a Masters in Music Education from the University of Florida. She has also studied at the Universita per Stranieri in Perugia, the International Lyric Academy of Rome, and the International Institute of Vocal Arts in Chiari, Italy. She serves as the Director of Music and Liturgy at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carlsbad, California, and teaches voice and piano privately.

Other recordings include Mahler VIII - Symphony of 1000 in the chorus with the late Robert Shaw.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are tailored to the individual student's initial abilities. In all genres of music it is important to breathe well, have breath support, communicate the emotion and character of the song, and eliminate vocal bad habits. These issues are different for everyone.

I teach a classical Italian technique of breath support and beautiful tone, and these techniques can be applied to all musical styles.

The student will be assigned and choose songs to learn and work on as we incorporate the techniques into the songs and vocal exercises.

Piano lessons and Italian lessons are also available from ages 5 and up.

*** Studio Equipment ***
CD player, 7' Boston grand piano, digital recorder

*** Travel Equipment ***
Yamaha keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Voice, classical, pop, Broadway, opera, Italian, piano, music theory,
audition preparation. I specialize in opera but sing many styles, including pop, classical, and musical theatre; I teach all styles in piano.

Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well.

Ciao, thank you for checking out my profile.
My name is Patrizia, I was born in Firenze in Italy and I moved to UK 7 years ago. I now live between Florida and Italy. I spend the summer at my home in Italy teaching Italian in my kitchen and giving the chance of living in a 'normal' Italian house.
I have been teaching Italian for six years in UK, private lessons and classes.
If you are a beginner and you don't know where to start from in this 'jungle' of Italian courses and lessons, or you have already done some Italian in the past, or you want to improve your skill for work or being able to speak to local while in Italy, I can help you to achieve these goals.

About Patrizia
Ciao! My name is Patrizia, and I’m originally from Firenze in Italy. I currently live between Florida, UK and Italy, where I teach Italian to English speakers.
I enjoy teaching my language and learning new things from my students, experiencing new cultures.
I love pass you on nuances, I enjoy teaching the real Italian, the one spoken in Italy, and discover the differences with the one written on books.
I do not have a degree, I have lots of experience teaching the language. I have been running up to 8 classes in adult education, covering any level from beginner to advanced. I'm a real person and I understand very well the weak points (i had to go trough them when learning English) and I know how to overcome them.
My teaching style? Tailor made! I teach the Italian that is relevant to YOU and what you want to achieve.
We will have fun du
ring our lessons, but we will also work hard to achieve your goals.
Learning a language is like an orchestra, it works with several instruments. Therefore, not only grammar, but also vocabulary, listening (ouch!) and speaking with a nice pronunciation. Listening exercises, yes, they are very important for your future ability of interacting with Italians.
I will also explain the Italian grammar in English, unless you are at an advanced level.

This is my 3rd attempt at learning Italian and the first time I have a teacher that explains things in a way I can understand. Silvana is patient and encouraging, while pushing me to work hard. I have struggled with the idea of conjugation in the past but she has made it understandable for me. I'm thrilled to have found her and look forward to each lesson and even my homework assignments.

Silvana is a fantastic teacher! She has a very structured/objective based, yet highly adaptable approach to teaching, which has been extremely effective. She is super patient and has manner of delivery which I have found to be very re-assuring but also challenging when required. I have to admit that I am not the most confident language learner, she takes this into account and pushes just enough without being overbearing. I'd say she is capable of teaching Italian to any level/objective. Whether your aim is basic travel communication or fluency. Highly recommended!

Experienced teacher from Turin (Italy) now working as an Architect at UCSD. I would be glad to talk about Cinema and more broadly about pop culture. As a world traveller I am very open to new perspectives and I like engaging in interesting discussions.

About Dario
After having resized that I couldn't make it as a pro volleyball player or chess master (I wasn’t any close), I spent the last few years studying passionately Architecture and working abroad. This competence has always been clear to me and it converges in the work with different design teams.
When I am not in front of a computer screen, I am usually with my cat and my one year English Setter/Hound dog mix, who loves to run and exercise even more than I do. I am very much a kid at heart, love to cook, watch good films, play games, and travel whenever I can.
I love meeting new people and learning new things. Linking the eyes with the heart, before shooting a photo or painting on a canvas are the activities which I prefer. Bringing with me the sketch book is a call for my soul. I love good communication and when I do something I’m always sea
rching for somewhat to do which could enlarge my way of thinking.

I'm going to make you speak! Don't worry about making mistakes, that's how we learn. Italian is a language that I love. While it is a second language for me, I do everything I can to keep up with my vocabulary and grammar. I spent a year post-college in Italy and recently a month in order to improve my speaking abilities. As such, I can teach you some fun idioms in addition to the basic language!

About Brooke
I am currently a PhD student studying epidemiology and infectious disease. I've worked all over the world and am comfortable with lots of different people. I am happy to tailor my lessons to how you learn. I love helping those studying increase their knowledge and succeed!
