About Benedetta O.

Hi, my name is Benedetta and I am an Italian Opera Singer now based in USA. I always loved music from an early age and I began performing at the age of 14 and continued my education at the Conservatory of Music and Philharmonic Academy in my country. I have a bachelor degree and a master in voice. From the age of 14 till 18 I performed in Broadway shows and then I approached the operatic world. Now I'm a professional opera singer, working all over the world and teaching at the same. In my lessons, you can expect to learn breathing technique, to develop your voice range, to focus on expression and interpretation. I can teach pop music, broadway as opera. I look forward to getting to know you as a student and learning about your specific goals, interests, and learning style. Book a lesson now and get connected right away!

About Italian Lessons: I was Chair of the Department of Italian Language and Literature at Alexander&Buono International Academy from Sept. 2014 till Sept. 2016, teaching young singers Italian Diction and Literature connected to Opera.
I teach private students since 2016, beginners and advanced levels. I worked with different kind of students: beginners that only wanted to learn basic conversations so to be able to speak while in Italy for the summer, moms that want to learn Italian diction so to be able to read Italian books and to sing Italian songs to their kids, beginners with deep interest in Italian grammar and comprehension.
Feel free to contact me with your requests and we'll organize a plan of studies adequate to your requests.

She really took the time to understand what I need and worked with me to help me with my breathing and technique. I am definitely taking more lessons from Benedetta.

I've had 5 lessons with Benedetta and she is fantastic. She focuses on technique which is so important for singers to master. I made progress after my first lesson and each week she teaches me something new. I highly recommend her and if you want results, she'll help you get to the level you want to achieve!
