Overview

I started my solo and backup singer career at the age of 12, working for RG Recording Studio (Italy). When I was 15 I founded a children's choir (ages 5 to 15) called Voci di Pace. I trained them as soloists and as an ensemble, as well as conducted them through the professional recording of dozens of CDs, such as: https://play.spotify.com/album/07WSECpRIw9aub1hpbIqLe. I also trained and conducted students for the recording of highschool musicals such as: https://play.spotify.com/album/44FrC6GPgFYNDyjD6fbMS3.

I began my conservatory bachelor degree training in cello and chamber music in 1997, and graduated 2010. Since then, I have studied singing technique with pop star Silvia Mezzanotte (www.silviamezzanotte.com) and with opera singers Chiara Fiorani and Noa Frenkel.

I love to teach singing, singing in Italian and Italian diction to students of all ages and backgrounds who are ready to explore their own souls and bodies and to learn how to be themselves through sound and music.

Giorgia is an awesome teacher! I was nervous about singing in front of people, but Giorgia creates a comfortable environment and makes every lesson informative and fun. I have a much better understanding of the fundamentals of singing and I feel more confident. Unfortunately I am moving out of the area, otherwise I would definitely continue lessons!

Giorgia was my first teacher in singing when I was just 8 years old. Since then she has always been a model for me: her talent, her competence, her determination really impressed me. She is able to teach very delicate and complexed topics with genuine irony letting your hair down. I strongly recomend her as a teacher, and I will always thank her for letting me able to apreciate at best music.

Giorgia is amazing! She has an incredible ability to make you feel safe to be vulnerable and open. I was very shy with my voice and Giorgia was the very first person to be able to make me sing in front of another person. She takes you through the basics and explains very constructively how things work. I can recommend her to anyone who is wanting to discover their voice!

Giorgia is a beautiful spirit!

I have observed her teaching primarily in choral settings. Even in large group settings, she is able to meet each student where he/she is and bring them to improve in a short amount of time.She is encouraging and warm, and is incredibly skilled in connecting with her students. I have seen her take a student who comes in with no knowledge of intonation and bring her to hear subtleties in pitch.
She turns technical breathing exercises into fun, engaging activities through her background in Active Listening Playground (ALP).

On top of that - she is a joy to sing with!!

Giorgia is our musical consultant and lead singer for weddings. In addition to a deep knowledge of the ceremony structure, she has a vast musical culture which is invaluable in creating a unique soundtrack for each couple. Giorgia and her choir Voci Di Pace are our first choice for both Catholic ceremonies and non-religious ceremonies: they interpret even the most traditional songs with new arrangements and beautiful harmonies.
The great added value of Giorgia and Voci Di Pace is their ability to make their voices into musical instruments, which makes each wedding emotional and unforgettable.

Giorgia has been teaching me to sing on and off for several years now. I went from tone deaf and not able to sing one note to now semi-passable during karaoke sessions. For someone like me who is just learning for fun and only for personal enjoyment, Giorgia is the best teacher. She never forgets to make the lessons fun and actually interesting. She has an immense knowledge of both music and singing theory, and knows how to distill that down to the lay person in ways that make sense and can actually be put to use.
