Francesca's focus at CSULA was in classical voice. Having studied with voice with Donald Brinegar, Dr. Susan Kane and Dr. Carol Cleary Francesca has a strong background in Bel Canto technique and classical repertoire.
I have been teaching this subject for over 20 years. There is no specific curriculum as each student will come to lessons with their own unique skills, needs, and goals. Lessons are tailored to those specifics. Opera voice is for experienced singers. The ability to reading music is mandatory as is access to a piano or keyboard for practicing. Concerning repertoire, it will be selected based on the student's learning needs but also with their input. The main emphasis on performance lessons, however, will be technique and reading. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.
Learn classical singing technique including breathing, diction, phrasing, musical terminology, and more.

Every lesson is for YOU. The time we spend together is time for you to explore your voice, your goals, and desires within music. I specialize in beginner/intermediate singers looking to expand their voice, repertoire, and love of singing. No lesson will be the same, and every lesson will be a shared experience in which we learn how your voice works, and how it feels.

Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning music will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime. After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their voice, warm up properly, be able to read and sing introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through singing multiple songs.
The path to developing operatic vocal technique is an intense one! There's a lot to learn about not just how to achieve the sound, but performance practice, history, foreign languages, acting and emoting for unamplified stage performance, and much more. I can guide and support you on your path. These lessons are open to anyone of any age. Even kids who are interested in classical singing can work with me to learn musical skills and healthy and safe vocal production. I especially love getting teen singers to explore their full voices!
You’ll love your lessons with me and benefit from my teaching experience of over 25 years and my Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Massachusetts where I also studied Italian, German, French and some Spanish. Italian is a beautiful language for singing with all the open vowels. We work on breath support, pitch, tone, range, interpretation and translation if singing in another language, warming up with vocal exercises and music theory. Each student is unique; so your lessons and repertoire are customized to suit your needs. Also included with your lessons are the opportunity to perform in recitals twice a year, email support, weekly lesson notes, progress reports, recordings, performance classes.
