Bio

Hey there!
Do you love music and languages?
Do you love world music and learning all about different cultures?

I am an Italian-American musician and have lived and performed both in Europe and in the US. I have experience teaching languages (Italian and French) at Berlitz, in Costa Rica, and in private lessons with great results. It's a joy to share passion for languages and cultures. Language is a way to explore new cosmovisions and approaches to life!

Hey there!
Do you love music and languages?
Do you love world music and learning all about different cultures?

I am an Italian-American musician and have lived and performed both in Europe and in the US. I have experience teaching languages (Italian and French) at Berlitz, in Costa Rica, and in private lessons with great results. It's a joy to share passion for languages and cultures. Language is a way to explore new cosmovisions and approaches to life!

For me, language and music are strongly connected. I have a degree in Music Production and Engineering from Berklee College of Music and have worked in the recording studio with some amazing artists including Primus and Rage against the Machine. My main instrument is the charango, a 10-string Bolivian instrument (similar to a mandolin). I can teach charango, guitar, bass and piano. My experiences in the music industry range from musician, composer, songwriter, performer, vocal teacher, guitar teacher and much more!

Contact me for more information. I look forward to hearing from you!

Guitar

I have been playing guitar since the age of 13, which had led me both through touring Europe as well as teaching children and adults of various ages. My approach is not formal and is not didactic, my focus is on empowering people to use music as a form of expression, or release and of course of fun! It is, after all, playing music!! Music is a medium to releasing tension, enjoying the present moment, and communicating on another level with others and with onesself. Learn by playing!
Songwriting

Songwriting

I have been writing songs since I was 13 years old, feeling the desire to express and communicate with the universe and with people through music. My songs have been featured in films, on albums, and performed live throughout the US and Europe. I have a degree from Berklee College of Music, though my approach is much more instinctive, from the gut, what feels good is where the harmony and melody are derived. I am a big fan of Sly & the Family Stone, Tom Ze', tune-yards, Devo, Jane's Addiction, Gilberto Gil, etc. My goal is to get you to express yourself through song!

Very smart

This tutor is very knowledgeable and constantly finding ways to improve her skills and her student's abilities. She carefully observed my efforts and adjusted her instructions, pace, and demonstrations as needed. Her enthusiasm and positive outlook about music and life made each lesson fun and productive. I highly recommend her.
