About

About

Teacher and performer with more than 12 years of experience. Spanish native speaker. (English C1) (Italian C1). I am attentive to detail precise with deadlines, self-oriented, and meticulous. I am a speedy and good learner. Working as a performer and having the chance to work in different countries has given me skills in languages, such as English and Italian, and the possibility of listening to high-profile musicians, sharing the stage with them, and learning from them. Being a teacher makes me patient and methodical, and always be attentive and updated with my own technique to teach in the best way possible. I use successful communication strategies and have experience with students of diverse backgrounds and ages. I had the opportunity to live in Miami, Washington D.C., and now Italy, so I am used to the differences between cultures, languages, and challenges that only an international environment can bring.

I have been a musician since I was 14 years old. I believe in the power of music beyond of if you are or not a professional in this area. Music teaches perseverance, discipline, and empathy, and shows you that all of us are connected. I’m always going to be in the service of keeping music strong, improving, and alive. I break down complex concepts understandably and methodically, being conscious of the student from a technical and personal point of view. My experience working with groups of children between 2 and 12 years old, adolescents, and adults has led me to develop skills such as the organization of group and individual lessons with successful communication strategies. I motivate students to approach mistakes as an opportunity to improve, not as an obstacle. Analyzing the nature of those “ problems ” to understand their origin of them and finding solutions through the skills-learning process has led to them. I urge my students to experiment with the concepts seen, beyond what the result will be. Through solidified learning, knowledge starts to be ours and not only the property and responsibility of the teacher.

As a singer, I am committed to the character. I bring on stage my experience, my passion, and skills as an interpreter through a deep and rigorous knowledge of the music and history behind the role or the piece of music I am singing. Always attentive to criticism and suggestions about my work. I enjoy teamwork and I believe in the construction and improvement of performances based on my ideas and those of others while maintaining a professional and open spirit.
