She has been a featured artist at the Tuscia Opera Festival in Italy from 2009 to 2016 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 fundrasier 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 is on the faculty of the International Lyric Academy of Rome and Viterbo, teaching voice and Italian lessons to the American students who come over to participate and learn. 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.

*** 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.

Very impressed with my instructor. I carefully reviewed all the speaking voice teachers on Take Lessons and weighed my options before finally choosing Bill. I'm so glad I picked him, I can't imagine any other teacher would of been nearly as helpful. When he heard I had an interview coming up, he even went above and beyond and did mock interviews with me to help me prepare. I highly recommend him!

If you would like to reduce your accent we can work together with a traditional text (Barron's American Accent Training) or with an online training system that allows you to record and listen to yourself. Note that there are additional charges for utilizing the online system.

Pronunciation in English is a subtle art. The smallest mistake can make a huge difference. Just imagine asking for a "sheet" of paper and instead of a long "E" sound, you use a "short "E" sound. Oooops! laugh it off and keep trying! It's no secret that pronunciation in English is no easy feat but with me, you'll work with English phonetics to understand and reproduce the wide range of sounds needed to pronounce words in English. Only through phonetics can you truly recreate the sounds made in the English language.

About Ryan
Hello my name is Ryan. For the past several years I have been teaching English as a second language in Madrid, Spain. During my travels abroad, I learned and experienced different cultures and how to interact with people from varying backgrounds. Now that I've returned home, I am looking to continue providing private lessons to eager ESL students. I strive to provide students with fun and engaging classes that are specifically designed to meet their unique learning needs and goals. I can teach students of all levels as well as give courses for test preparation.
My lessons are designed in a three step manner. First, I present a new topic to you that we examine as a team and work through together. Next, we practice the topic through various activities designed to help reinforce what you have learned. Finally, you actually produce
the skill that we have learned during our lesson. We do this final step to solidify your learning and help move the information into your long term memory so you can use it in your daily life!
