Hello!


Music is my life and my biggest passion. I've been a working musician and a teacher for many years and there is nothing more rewarding than sharing all I've learned so far with my students, to nurture their goals and aspirations. Every year I plan and host two wonderful recitals for my students, so that they can experience and share their progress with family and friends.

I offer a trial lesson, single lessons and lessons packages for children and adults. You can easily book a lesson following the “Calendly” links on this page.

Drop me a line HERE if you have any questions before booking a lesson.

I look forward to meeting you! 

Elena

 

Here's more about me:
I was born and raised in Florence, Italy and have been singing since I was a child but started a formal training during my teenage years with a private coach. During college, while studying Psychology at the University of Florence, I attended 2 private music schools in Florence and Bologna. There I kept studying vocal technique, solfège, classical guitar and music harmony. 


I moved to LA in 2003 and attended Musician's Institute earning a diploma in Vocal Studies and Vocal Performance and then a Certificate in Composition & Songwriting from UCLA (University of California Los Angeles). I refined my vocal technique studying at Berkley College of Music for a summertime in a special program for Jazz Vocalists and I have been an Alexander Technique's student for now 15+ years. 

I am currently:

  • In the process of earning a Voice Pedagogy Master's Degree from the University of Wales Trinity St. David.
  • Teaching Group-Voice Classes at the Williamson County Enrichment Center in Franklin, TN.
  • Teaching numerous online private lessons to students all over the world. 


I am also a performing artist, a singer, guitarist and songwriter.  I have performed all over the country and abroad in some of the most beautiful venues, such as the Pantages Theater and the Getty Center, and many iconic ones such as The Whiskey a Go Go, The Troubadour to name a few. I have released 4 original albums and some of my songs have earned recognition from International competitions and have been placed in movies and TV shows. My personal style of singing is modern, not operatic, I love many kinds of music but especially pop, jazz, and musical theater.

 

***Lessons Details***

I teach young children using fun songs, games and classical guitar technique. I also teach adults and specialize in contemporary guitar. I welcome many styles of music, pop, rock as well as folk genres of Latin America. I emphasize good posture, tone and musicality, and always a high level of enjoyment with the process!

*** RECITALS ***
I plan and host 2 wonderful Recitals a year.  I encourage all my students to participate, no matter how they may feel about their instrument level and preparation. Working towards a performance is one of the most effective ways to solidify your ever growing skill!
