She has been a featured artist at the Etruria Opera Festival in Tarquinia and the Tuscia Opera Festival in Italy from 2009 to 2017 as well as performing recitals and concerts in the Southern California area. In November of 2014, Rebecca organized and performed in the Suor Angelica Project, a fundraiser for the San Diego Opera. This collaboration with the San Diego Symphony and members of the San Diego Opera Chorus raised over $7500 for the Opera.

Since 2009. Rebecca

She has also sung concerts and recitals in New York City, London, Edinburgh, and various cities in Italy as well as locally here in California and Florida.

*** 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.

Ciao, thank you for checking out my profile.
My name is Patrizia, I was born in Firenze in Italy and I moved to UK 7 years ago. I now live between Florida and Italy. I spend the summer at my home in Italy teaching Italian in my kitchen and giving the chance of living in a 'normal' Italian house.
I have been teaching Italian for six years in UK, private lessons and classes.
If you are a beginner and you don't know where to start from in this 'jungle' of Italian courses and lessons, or you have already done some Italian in the past, or you want to improve your skill for work or being able to speak to local while in Italy, I can help you to achieve these goals.

About Patrizia
Ciao! My name is Patrizia, and I’m originally from Firenze in Italy. I currently live between Florida, UK and Italy, where I teach Italian to English speakers.
I enjoy teaching my language and learning new things from my students, experiencing new cultures.
I love pass you on nuances, I enjoy teaching the real Italian, the one spoken in Italy, and discover the differences with the one written on books.
I do not have a degree, I have lots of experience teaching the language. I have been running up to 8 classes in adult education, covering any level from beginner to advanced. I'm a real person and I understand very well the weak points (i had to go trough them when learning English) and I know how to overcome them.
My teaching style? Tailor made! I teach the Italian that is relevant to YOU and what you want to achieve.
We will have fun du
ring our lessons, but we will also work hard to achieve your goals.
Learning a language is like an orchestra, it works with several instruments. Therefore, not only grammar, but also vocabulary, listening (ouch!) and speaking with a nice pronunciation. Listening exercises, yes, they are very important for your future ability of interacting with Italians.
I will also explain the Italian grammar in English, unless you are at an advanced level.

Fulvia has been our teacher now for 3 years. We wanted to learn Italian because we travel to Italy often.
Each lesson is well prepared and thought through by the teacher. Fulvia uses many different ways to make lessons fun and the language more approachable.
They include books, videos and interactive games etc. There is always a bit of homework to do to help follow up with the weekly lesson. She always finds ways to help us understand subjects that are challenging.
That Fulvia is a native speaker of the Italian language is a big bonus.
Fulvia is a great teacher and we highly recommend her.

I have experience with languages and grammar, and I know that everyone learn in a different way, for some people is easier than for others. My challenge is to find what is easier for you

About Isabel
I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different things.
