*** 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.

I speak a high intermediate level of Italian so if you are looking for lessons and you are just beginning I would love to help.

About Christopher
Hello! Hola! Benvenuto! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, composer, polyglot, and experienced language and music teacher.

I am a recent graduate with a Masters of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. There I studied with the world-renowned guitarist Eliot Fisk who is a direct student of the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia.

Currently I work part time teaching 12 students guitar at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia. I also I teach ukulele, Spanish, Italian, and English to a variety of students online. At the same time I am pursuing a Doctoral degree from the university to strengthen my skills as a guitarist and expand my knowledge as a teacher for higher education. I have also just completed my debut album titled, "Anima - The Music of Spain and Italy for the Gu
itar."

This album is a tribute and memorial to an amazing journey I had traveling and living in Europe for 3 years.

After I graduated from my undergraduate degree, I realized that in order to better my skills as a musician and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for three years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar.

I studied with a international known Spanish guitarist named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville. During this time I was also teaching English as a second language to high school and middle school students. From traveling and spending so much time in Europe, I also developed and studied my love of languages and I became fluent in Spanish and Italian.

The experienced was an experience of a lifetime and I made many friends working and living abroad that to this day, I still keep in contact with.

If you are interested in having lessons with me, please contact me and we can begin learning the art of making beautiful music or learning the beautiful languages of the Mediterranean! "Hasta pronto!" "A presto!" and "Speak to you soon!"

Valentina, is a wonderful teacher, She gets me used to hearing the language, since much of the fluidity of a new language revolves around the ear and hearing, and pronouncing the new words. She has given me a language course with background, and a grounding in grammar; and helps me with the words and idioms the I will use when I am in Italy. I am extremely happy with my lessons.

Pasta. Pizza. Spaghetti. As Americans, we're pretty familiar with Italian food. But do any of us know the language? Do you know the difference between when you should say "bravo" or "brava" in a concert? Whether you need help for an exam, or are about to study abroad, I'll help you learn Italian and improve your pronunciation so that you're ready to go!

Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles.

Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),

Their have been many times where I have been so frustrated with my vocal training that I almost wanted to quit. Viviana has made me push myself and showed me that patience is the key in developing a fantastic voice. I promise if she was your instructor you could see how absolutely amazing she is.

I was born and raised in Italy, where I lived most of my life. I've met my now husband while he was stationed in Italy and then moved to the United States. I like to teach Italian to anyone who shows interest. I am not your typical teacher, and what I LOVE to do is talk... talk, talk, talk, and talk. I can teach you how to go to the grocery store, to the restaurant and how to have easy conversations with locals. My latest student was very pleased with my teaching after she went to Italy on vacation and was able to understand and communicate at hotels, restaurants, museums, etc.

About Cecilia
I love to teach my native language. A little grammar and a whole lot of talking! Let's learn a new language in a fun way. We read and we talk, talk, and talk some more!

Truckee, CA

I provide fun/customized lessons based on the student's goals. I believe that desire to learn a language is the only way that makes a student want to learn, and therefore I try to minimize English speaking during the lessons. I also give homework exercises for the students to do between lessons. Unless requested, my lessons are intermixed with grammar, conversation, customs/traditions. My goal is to make certain that each student finds Italian as exciting as I do, and wishes to continue the learning process, and become comfortable with me and the Italian language.

About Anna (Carlini)
I was born in Italy and came to the U.S. with my family. I was educated in the U.S. and returned to Italy to live and work for the U.S. Navy. There I met and married my husband. We returned to the U.S. and had two beautiful children. I have been teaching Italian in the Lake Tahoe area for nine years now, and have every intention of continuing to do so on a different platform then a standard classroom. I find that students learn faster and better when they are in their own setting and comfortable.

My goal is to make certain each student from beginner to advanced walks away knowing Italian more then when he/she started, and are happy with me and with the results.
I want to make sure that each student feels comfortable in conversing in Italian, and that he/she truly believes that learning Italian is possible.
I provide lessons fr
om beginner to advanced to all that wish to learn or improve their Italian. Each lesson is based on each student's knowledge base and the goal that they wish to achieve. Knowledge in any given subject is like gold.

Cancelling or rescheduling your class: If you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson it is possible, but I would require 24 hrs. notice prior to your scheduled lesson time.
