*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are tailored to the individual student's initial abilities. In all genres of music it is important to breathe well, have breath support, communicate the emotion and character of the song, and eliminate vocal bad habits. These issues are different for everyone.

I teach a classical Italian technique of breath support and beautiful tone, and these techniques can be applied to all musical styles.

The student will be assigned and choose songs to learn and work on as we incorporate the techniques into the songs and vocal exercises.

Piano lessons and Italian lessons are also available from ages 5 and up.

*** Studio Equipment ***
CD player, 7' Boston grand piano, digital recorder

*** Travel Equipment ***
Yamaha keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Voice, classical, pop, Broadway, opera, Italian, piano, music theory,
audition preparation. I specialize in opera but sing many styles, including pop, classical, and musical theatre; I teach all styles in piano.

About Veronica
Hello!
I am Italian and since January 2016 I am living in Texas. My goal is to help whoever needs support to learn Italian.

As a teacher I have always taught art and theatre to elementary kids.
Here in Texas I would like to bring my knowledge of Italian focusing on the structure of the language itself and on the slang, in order to be ready to face a real Italian environment.

I speak Italian, English, Spanish and I am now learning French.
I truly believe in the power of a language and in its most "informal" way to be spoken, therefore conversations are going to be a big part of our sessions.

As homework I will recommend Italian movies to watch, Italian music to listen to and books to read, depending on the student's level.

I can travel to students or meet them online.

Feel free to contact me to get more details!
I lo
ok forward to hearing from you and helping you to get into the Italian world!

About Christelle
I love creating: writing, knitting, seeing new things come to life and thrive. I have extensive experience teaching women's health classes and counseling in natural women's health, because motherhood courses through my veins. I am also a published author and speaker.

I love to encourage and support my students and build into your lives -- to see you make goals, work hard to achieve them, and then succeed! If you are a student who will work hard -- and have fun doing so -- and want a coach who will cheer you on, then I am the teacher for you!

Baby Sign Language classes are either caregiver and child or caregiver alone. Baby Signs classes are appropriate for young children age 5 years old and under. Health coaching services are for women age 18 years old and up. My ESL classes are for women who are at least 18 years old.

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.
