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.

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!
