About Carla

Whether you are expanding your repertoire or preparing for an audition, perfect Italian diction is a must for every professional opera singer. Let me assist you with my expertise in music, ear training and acoustics. Since 2007, I have been teaching Italian diction in Germany, Switzerland, Italy and the U.S., successfully coaching opera singers for a variety of roles and exams. With my method you will rapidly assimilate perfect Italian pronunciation, and learn how to project it clearly from the stage without effort. I am also a passionate tutor of Italian language and culture.

As a former professional musician, I have toured internationally appearing at major music festivals, such Lucerne Festival, Salzburger Festspiele, Klangspuren, Transart Festival and Culturescapes, and collaborated with composers on original scores performing premieres and participating in live broadcasts and recordings for radio and television. Originally from Milano, I moved to NYC in 2013 and recently earned my MFA in Sound Arts at Columbia University.

Custom-tailored sessions designed to meet the unique needs of every student.

As a native speaking professional diction coach in Italian opera, I have helped numerous opera singers ace auditions, exams and studio recording sessions in Europe and the U.S. My knowledge of music and acoustics will rapidly improve your pronunciation, interpretation, and voice projection.
