Teaching since:

Do you love to sing? Do you want to expand your ability to express yourself through song? Singing is a highly emotional but also athletic activity. It takes being interested, curious, engaged, and above all, willing to do the work even if you don't know what the end result will look/sound like.

I am offering voice lessons at all levels and to all ages.

I am a professional opera singer who studied music and singing at Columbia University and the Manhattan School of Music. I am fortunate to have worked with some of the great teachers, conductors, and singers of our generation. I also unite a diverse background of body work modalities, communication & awareness training, and of course vocal pedagogy to enable you develop your voice.

What makes me unique is that I have also sung professionally in *both* the classical and pop/rock/blues/R&B repertoires. I love exploring the full palette of vocal expression, and I can help you unlock your true, full voice.

I speak English, German, and Italian fluently and also have a solid background in French. I am happy to teach in your preferred language.

Opera Voice · Online

Maria is an amazingly positive and versatile teacher. From her own experience as a singer, she understands not only how to produce a very healthy classical, opera voice, she also has great understanding of much more than just the basics of pop, R&B and jazz. Highly recommended both for beginners and advanced singers!
