My name is Marco, I’m a singer, songwriter, and voice teacher. I attended Berklee College of Music, and worked as a performer and teacher in different schools. I’ve been a professional musician for 15 years now, and I’ve been teaching for 10 years. I won national competitions in Italy, performed nationally and internationally in many venues and festivals. I participated to the first season of the italian edition of the X-Factor. I’m originally from Italy, and I’m fluent in English, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese.
I’ve been teaching consistently for 10 years now. I taught all ages, from kindergarten kids to people over 60, kids with special needs, one on one classes, ensembles, full classrooms, and high school. If there's one thing that I learned throughout my career is that very student has a unique voice, so every voice needs to be approached in a unique way. Contemporary music is so diverse, I like to work with songs and styles that the student likes, but also to challenge them to explore outside of their comfort zone. I encourage students to perform, improvise, re-arrange and even create their own songs.
I consider the voice the most interesting instrument, considering how unique every voice is. It is a "living instrument", strongly influenced by so many physical, emotional and psychological factors. In my classes I love to help students exploring their voice beyond the simple concept of learning a melody and repeating it, showing them how to use their instrument at its full potential of musical expression. I like to teach the technique together with the interpretation, going through every musical style. I firmly believe that there is something to learn from every genre, and I think that the listening process is an essential step to find our own personal voice.
My teaching style is fun and engaging. Music has to be a pleasure, both to perform and learn. In my classes even exercises are fun, interesting and stimulating; they're not just some boring tasks, but rather something that the student is actively interested in practicing and learning. I'm very positively honest and realistic with setting goals, and I strongly believe that there's room for improvement for everybody, each one with their own pace. The voice is such a unique instrument, and there's nothing more rewarding that seeing a student grow and learn to discover and love their own personal sound.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
