I'm an experienced Voice Teacher and I will help you learn songs (all music genres) using a healthy technique that explores the whole body as an instrument. Adequate breathing, good posture and a conscious and tension-free body will enable great artistic and personal growth. We will also focus on expressivity! Singing is about telling stories, so we will explore the poetry, the character and bring the songs to life by understanding the reason for each word and musical note!

There is nothing more gratifying than seeing my students' improvement and how they get more and more passionate and curious about music. My goal as a music teacher is to help people develop and unlock their creativity while giving them strong pillars to do so and I believe that I can help them explore their songs in a more comprehensive way due to the diverse background I have in different artistic fields, as a conductor, a pianist, actress, choir singer and opera singer. We will explore music from many different angles! Let's build a strong foundation together and have fun!

About Flavia D.

I'm a Brazilian Professional Singer based in New York City. I received my Master’s Degree in Music with concentration in Classical Vocal Performance from New York University and my Bachelor’s in Music with concentration in Conducting from FAAM, a university located in São Paulo, where I was born and raised.

My musical path started at the age of ten, as a classical pianist. My passion and curiosity for many art forms led me to explore choir and orchestral conducting, acting, and singing. Later I realized that as an Opera Singer I would finally be able to unite these different means of expression.

I'm currently part of 3 Opera Companies in the city, The Opera Collective, International Brazilian Opera Company, and Opera Dell'Arte Ensemble and I've been teaching Voice for over 5 years, all music genres.

She was amazing. She understood right way my strong points, but most important, my weak points. After only a few lessons, my voice and articulation improved substantially.

Flávia has helped me tremendously. Now I can say I'm a singer without doubting myself. Learning with her is pleasant, fun, light, enriching...I'm glad I found her. If she is your teacher, you're in good hands!

I'd always thought singing was not for me, that I was not talented enough, but Flávia has shown me that "talent" is not a prerequisite. She will give you the means to pursue your dreams. I know I'm on the right path now, learning how to use my entire body as my instrument, in a healthy way, plus the acting training that is so important when you want to become a performer!

She has been my mentor for a couple of years now and the amount of knowledge she has always impresses me. I'm the type of student that wants to know why I'm doing this or that exercise, I need images, I need to understand anatomy, and she is the type of teacher that wants to make sure you are doing things without a doubt in your head! She will find different ways to explain the same thing if necessary!
I've been working on musical theater songs and classical ones and my voice is more and more flexible each day. I love all the cross-training exercises we do. They are fun, they are challenging, they make you grow!!

Flávia is such a great teacher! I'm always looking forward to our weekly lessons where she helps me find my voice and gives me the tolls to keep growing day by day! I've always feared performing in front of people but now I have the confidence I thought I would never have. I also love the moments we work on the dramatic circumstances of the songs, giving me a reason to sing them, a purpose! You should/t hesitate to contact her!!

Flávia is one of the most supportive and attentive teacher's I've had. Her excitement during the lessons makes me want to practice daily and her way of explaining things could not be clearer! All my friends that started taking lessons with her after my recommendations have been constantly growing, the same with me!

Flavia is an excellent singer, with a beautiful voice, and one of the best educators I've met. I'm sure she will make you sing better everyday and make you fall in love with this art form.

She is one of the most talented and passionate musicians I’ve met. I’ve been following her career as a performer and as a teacher since the beginning and I see how satisfied her students are!

I've been taking lessons with Flávia for over a year and I see constant growth in my technique and in the way I approach new songs. Her lessons have taught me to see music and art in a way I thought I would never be able to, all its layers, plus I see myself growing as a person, with more confidence, more self-awareness and now I allow my imagination to go far away! I highly recommend her as a Voice Teacher!

Flavia has been an amazing teacher and mentor. Her breadth of knowledge and vast skill set has elevated every aspect of my vocal performance. Her teaching style is easily digestible and manages to impart even the most difficult skills with ease. If you don't take a lesson with Flavia, you're missing out!
