I'm a singer-songwriter, voice teacher and Berklee College of Music alumni.
I started my career in Italy, winning national competitions like the Tour Music Fest, and participating to the first edition of the talent show “The X-Factor”. I graduated at the University of Pisa in “Music, Cinema and Theatre” and I also have a diploma in “Modern singing” at the Lizard Academy of Florence, and one in “Performance” at the CET (Centro Europeo di Toscolano), one of the most prestigious music schools in Italy.
I worked as a voice teacher in music academies and high schools both in Italy and in the Boston area (Cambridge arts Academy, The Conservatory at Highlands, Plugged In Band Program, Musician's Playground). My original music project is called Perfect Mark, my first album is titled “Flesh & Voice”, for which I wrote, arranged and produced all the tracks.
Learning to sing means learning about yourself and your own voice, which is a unique instrument. There are so many different techniques out there, and my job is to use exercises to guide you through the discovery of your own personal sound: Understanding your breath support, different registers, expanding your range, use of dynamics, improvisation, understanding vocal styles of different genres, etc.
If you are a singer songwriter, I love working on original music, as well as coaching during studio sessions.
Was quickly able to find areas of improvement and provide excersises to fix the issues.
First of all, Marco is a tremendous singer and musical artist, as evidenced by his amazing vocals and songwriting in his original music. He has years of experience singing and performing professionally, and it shows.
Even more importantly, Marco is a spectacular teacher. He is a student of the voice and knows more about the anatomy of singing than anyone I've ever met. He can describe where you should place your sound, pinpoint how your body is affecting your voice, and immediately show you several exercises that target your specific challenge spots.
Marco has also helped me improve so much as a performer and musician; he has challenged me to sing songs that are slightly out of my comfort zone and given me countless tips on how to pay homage to an artist when covering them while still making the song my own. Finally, he has also helped me develop my own musical style as a cover artist and original artist.
I can honestly say that Marco was the best voice teacher I have ever had. He came to class every day with new exercises for me, new song recommendations, and an amazing attitude that made me comfortable trying new things. After taking weekly voice lessons with Marco for four years, I see a tremendous improvement of my skills, and with his talent and assistance I now have a larger range, a larger repertoire and am singing songs I never thought I’d be able to. I highly recommend Marco for voice lessons, this is the easiest five stars I have ever given.+ Read More
Marco is a great teacher! He has really helped me become more confident in my voice and bring out what I am good at as well as challenging me to try new things. He is very flexible and works on whatever style I want to work on and i always feel comfortable singing with him. He clearly loves what he does and he made me enjoy it too!+ Read More
Marco is an excellent voice teacher, very knowledgeable in different styles and techniques. Studying with him helped me become a better singer and be more confident on stage. I would definitely recommend studying with Marco!
Marco is an exceptional voice instructor, his knowledge and training encompass a range of different techniques and performance skills and he is deeply aware of the emotional depth necessary to explore the multiple facets of a student’s voice. His love for all kinds of music makes him very versatile in suggesting styles that could complement your repertoire and strengthen your interpretation choices, supporting your overall sense of musicianship. His guidance inspired me to become a courageous performer and more sincere songwriter as well. I would recommend anyone to study with him to learn how to bring out the best in you.+ Read More
Marco is punctual, patient and knowledgeable. He created a comfortable studio environment where I could progress at my own pace. Sometimes he would give me a simple tip that made a difficult passage suddenly easy, or we would work through a section on piano. Marco has a killer ear and can hear the tiniest detail in a piece. I was able to progress faster than I thought I would/could with his guidance and excellent teaching style. He would make a great teacher for any level student.+ Read More
Marco is an amazing teacher! My son has fun, gains confidence and learns so much from his lessons with Marco.
Marco is an amazing teacher. He taught both of my sons (current ages 12 and 9) and their friend (current age 12) for several years in Boston. I attended most of the lessons and watched him connect with the boys, and teach them how to find and develop their own voice, harmonize, and write songs. The boys ABSOLUTELY LOVE Marco and were sad when he moved to New York. As a musician and a parent - - I highly recommend Marco. He is a wonderful teacher, musician, and person.+ Read More
I’ve been working with Marco for over 2 and a half years, and he is such a kind and knowledgeable teacher. He has so much experience and expertise and my voice has transformed. I had issues with breathing technique and tension, and Marco has helped me immensely. On top of that, he is just a nice guy who cares about helping people and gets joy from progress. I would highly recommend!+ Read More
