Dr. Chaz is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. He is an incredibly adept musician. He can identify what exactly you need improvement on and provides the most helpful advice on how to attain that improvement. I have studied music (flute) for 10 years with numerous teachers and band/orchestra directors, all very skilled and incredible themselves, but I never received clearer instruction than with Dr. Chaz. He explained concepts that many young musicians (like myself) struggle with and he beautifully portrays the relationship between theory, practice, and performance. Additionally, I appreciate his emphasis on ensuring vocal health and meditation- meditating pitches so that one can internalize the pitches to sing them more accurately. I was planning to remain his student for as long as I could but due to personal health and scheduling reasons, I had to discontinue and hope to return soon. I 150% recommend taking his lessons. Get ready to learn so much and expand as a musician!
Mark
Really great vocal teacher. He's very patient to his students. He goes on all the topics about singing. He's really good at helping his students prepare for a song. He doesn't waste time on any unnecessary practice. He teaches his students how to practice at home. I learned a lot of singing terms from him as well. Overall, I think he's a great vocal coach.

Italian Lessons Near You

With over 64 million native speakers worldwide, the Italian language has a rich heritage that provides a historical window into the past. Much of the Italian language rules were actually taken from Dante Alighieri's writings in the 14th century. (Dante is most known for his work in the "Divine Comedy”).

If you're already an English speaker, you'll find Italian easier to learn than nearly all other foreign languages. Italian’s sentence structure and grammar rules are easier to learn than English. In addition, both languages share thousands of words with similar meanings that sound similar enough to recognize them. Such words are known as “cognates.”

Reasons to Learn to Speak Italian

Want to learn Italian? If so, you’ll enjoy numerous mental and career benefits. As we'll see, learning a new language like Italian can give you increased confidence and more opportunities in life.

Private Italian Lessons for Kids

Children who learn Italian experience a number of benefits. They’ll develop a deeper appreciation for other cultures, have the opportunity to make new friends, and down the road, they’ll have some exciting career options. That could include being a translator, immigration specialist or pursuing any career where bilingual skills are coveted.

There are a few convincing academic benefits as well. Studies show that students who have learned a foreign language score better on the ACT for Mathematics and English. They also perform better on the SAT when it comes to their verbal scores than monolingual students do. 

Other studies discovered increased brain matter where executive functioning takes place, resulting in a better working memory, internal dialogue and ability to persevere through obstacles.

Italian Language Lessons for Adults

If you're an adult, it's never too late to take Italian language classes near you. You'll experience many of the same benefits children do, and more. For starters, you’ll excel more quickly in your studies because you already have an extensive English vocabulary. Since so many words are similar between English and Italian, the learning curve will be much faster. Hope to be a polyglot someday? After mastering Italian, you'll find it even easier to learn a third language in the future.

Additionally, you'll be able to immediately take your newfound language into a career with a potentially higher paying salary. Already retired and planning to travel? Italian classes for adults can enhance your experience immensely. Finally, science has shown that learning a new language can delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease by up to four and a half years!

Topics Covered When You Learn to Speak Italian 

Regardless of your age, Italian language classes near you are an excellent choice. Having a teacher who can give you advice and feedback will make all the difference. You'll accelerate your learning speed and increase your potential. What are the specifics you can expect to learn based on the skill level you already possess? Let's take a look!

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Italian Lessons

Want to learn basic Italian for beginners? You might have a mix of goals. This could include understanding your genealogical background better or preparing for an upcoming trip to Rome. Either way, here's a summary of what you can expect to learn at this level.

  • Basic Italian greetings
  • Beginner vocabulary words
  • Intro to Italian culture
  • Italian language pronunciation

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Italian Classes

Are you somewhere in between when it comes to your knowledge of Italian? If so, your best bet could be intermediate Italian classes near you. You're getting closer to becoming an expert! Here's some of what to expect in your lessons.

  • Reading and writing in Italian
  • Complex grammar rules
  • Comprehension of native Italian speakers
  • Italian conversational skills

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Italian Lessons

Maybe you already have a strong grasp of Italian but want to get better. In that case, advanced Italian lessons near you make sense. You’ll put yourself on the fast track to using your language skills in a job, during traveling ventures and more. Here are the highlights of what you'll cover at this level.

  • Moods and tenses
  • Italian idioms
  • Regional language differences
  • Accent reduction

While this is a summary of what to expect at each skill level, these lists are by no means exhaustive. Your Italian tutor will factor in details unique to your learning style, background and interests to help you reach your greatest potential!
