Basic Italian vocabulary, grammar and diction.

About Bridget
I have been a professional voice, music theory and piano teacher for the last ten years, and have loved every minute of it. I am originally from Canada, and went to the University of Windsor to study vocal performance. I was given an opportunity to the study principals of classical singing and musical theater. From there, I began to work as a featured classical soloist and choral singer throughout Canada. I came to New York to continue my studies, and earned a Master of Music degree in Classical Voice from the Manhattan School of Music.

I believe that singing lessons should be a lot of fun. With good technique, my students and I can team up to accomplish anything from singing classical songs and even some opera arias to popular songs and musical theater. It is my goal to help you discover your own personal voice, and build confidence
in your individual gifts. My students have gone on to study voice in college and university, perform in musical theater, sing in rock bands, children and adult choirs and even win a competition or two. I love hearing my students perform, and feel that an opportunity to sing in front of others builds confidence and ability. I take pride in arranging recitals for my students who would like this opportunity.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons with always begin with warm ups and technique. We'll also focus on an important principal topic, such as breath and support, vowel placement or expression. We'll use some exercises that I have already, or perhaps a new one just for your needs (once I get to know your voice) to help you achieve our goals. We'll then work on 1-2 songs. You'll probably have picked one, and I may have picked one. The concept that we worked on in our technique session will be applied directly to the songs you are working on. You can learn so many different things in each song, we may practice your songs, using a different goal in several different lessons.
All of my students get a chance to perform in occasional "vocal class" settings, where you can sing your favorite songs for one another, in a fun, laid back environment. All students are welcome to participate in an annual recital for their family and friends too! Piano lessons are designed to suit your needs. We can work on the basics for classical playing, read chords, jazz improv and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have my own music studio set up in my apartment. On teaching days, my living room can be a comfortable waiting room for parents/guardians. You are all most welcome to relax, have a cup of tea or coffee and listen to our lessons. I do ask that you do not sit inside the studio (at least not after the first lesson) as this can be distracting for your child. My studio is equipped with a music stand, upright piano, work sheets for theory, pencils and crayons. I also have a full Broadway and classical music library that students can borrow from, CD/DVD's that can be borrowed, and a New Grove Reference set.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring some music, until we assess the student's needs, then they may buy some books, while I provide the rest. I bring theory worksheets, stickers, pencils etc. If a student would like to sing/play a particular song (Broadway/pop etc) I may have it in my music library.If I do not, the student will need to purchase the music they would like to sing. The student would need a keyboard/piano in their home should I travel. I have a piano in my home.

*** Specialties ***
Classical singing, Musical Theater, Jazz, music for young children, pop singing, audition preparation, beginning music for adults.

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.

Hi Future Students,

If you love the Italian culture and would like to learn how to speak Italian, I'm your girl!! I studied for 4 years in college and moved there for some time. I can help you with your hw and I can also help you, if you just want to learn some basic phrases to get around.

About Deborah
I have so many different things I teach. If you are looking for a voice teacher, I definitely can be of help. I have been singing all of my life. I sing in many different genres like pop, gospel, R&B, and classical. I can even help if you want to be an opera singer, as I am studying to be one myself at the Aaron Copland of Music. First things we would start to do is learn how to breathe. After the student understands good breath, then we will apply it to actual singing.

I also teach Italian, and have taught the language for 3 years in a private school. I lived in Italy for a while and I just love the language. If anyone needs a tutor, I can help!

I also teach art history, and art as far as drawing and painting. So if any parent wants for their child learn how to express themselves through painting or drawing, I can do that as well!!


I love to do all of these things, as I have a great passion for them! I hope I can inspire someone else.

Being a native Italian and having lived in Rome for over 30 years gives me the necessary knowledge to know what is needed in order to learn the Italian language and get deeper into the Italian culture. Also having over 20 years of teaching experience allows me to tailor my knowledge to the need of every particular student. I really enjoy to transfer my knowledge and solve the unique problems that every student encounter during their path.

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.

Anna is a fantastic instructor! Lessons included grammatical break downs, vocabulary, current and historical Italian events, and more. The classes were informative, adaptive to the students needs, and fun. It was always a pleasantly interactive setting where I was speaking with a good friend, and it just happened to be in Italian.

Our sessions together were always fun and productive. I believe that listening to and speaking with a native born teacher is essential!

Anna is excellent whether you are a beginner or advanced Italian speaker! She knows just how to pace the class, and always modified it so that it was perfectly fit for me. She was so patient!! I never felt uncomfortable or rushed to learn, and she always seemed to have so many different ways to teach me the language; whether it was sentence structure, verb conjugation, new work pronunciation - it didn't matter, she was so creative with so many different ways to learn it all.

About Marco
I'm a native Italian speaker student who is currently living in New Jersey and I'm enrolled in Brookdale Community College where I'm majoring in International Studies.

Many Italian teachers are native speakers, but I earned my fluency just like you will- with study, practice, and immersion. I got my BA with Honors in Italian from Vassar College after studying for a semester at the Università di Bologna and completing my full-length musicological thesis on Italian Opera, written entirely in Italian.

As a non-native speaker, I had to learn the language inside and out. I already had to conquer every linguistical challenge that you will face on your journey with Italian, so I know how to teach the language in a way that English speakers like you can understand! We can work together to develop a curriculum that will help you reach your goals of learning the most beautiful language in the world.

About Madeline
I'm an opera singer who's been making music since before I could talk, and I can't wait to share my love of music with you! I graduated from Vassar College with my BA in Music and Italian in 2016 and recently moved to New York to pursue my career. I have experience teaching Voice, Piano, and Early Childhood music lessons.

I began taking voice lessons at age 11. I had wonderful teachers who taught me classical technique to keep my voice healthy, supported, and controlled. Though I later chose to pursue a career in classical music, I initially was interested in musical theater. I am eternally grateful to my teachers for teaching me to sing classically and I maintain that all voice students should have that same foundation in classical bel canto technique, regardless of their preferred performance genre- good technique can be applied to wh
atever you sing!

In addition to Voice, I teaching beginning piano. I began studying piano long before voice, when I was only five years old. Learning to play the piano is crucial for any aspiring musician and aids in the development of fine motor skills, reading skills, and math skills in young children.

Whatever your skill level and whatever your goals, I would love to work with you to develop your musical skills. I feel confident that we can make some amazing music together!
