Love Veronica. She’s very encouraging!! Absolutely loved my first lesson.
Amy R.
Veronica was patient while we figured out the logistics of distance learning and gave me homework to challenge me.
She is personable, and someone I would be friends with outside of the professional relationship we share.

Hi! i am an opera singer who has been out in Southold. I have had the luck to have met Paolo Bartolani.
Paolo is a remarkable teacher and coach. He is so knowledgeable and yet so kind and patient. He has the patience to work with all levels, I am very fortunate to have started working with him.
Now that we have Covid19 we are doing Zoom sessions and they are very successful. Before that we did coaching in Paolo's studio. If you want to learn without embarassment and learn so much work with Paolo Bartolani.
