RECORDING TECHNIQUES & TIPS (for Professional Vocalists ONLY!)
Learn different recording techniques & tips towards quality voice and audio recordings, and develop in-studio efficiency in a relaxed and fun environment. We can instruct you on how to dub and layer vocals, ad-lib and produce quality sound that is specific to voice type and vocal register. Additionally, this class can teach you how to quickly develop a fluid communicatory dynamic with new sound engineers or visa versa, encourage productive and precise communication from sound engineer to recording artist. Other insights could include consultation for Future Sound Engineers and Recording Artists such as: where to make their sounds fuller, rounder, where to take breaths and/or change rhythms or shorten syllables where needed; how to take different creative songwriting or beat-building approaches to music. This course is only given in English. This is for individuals that are striving towards voice quality and enhanced composition in the English language. This is not a voice class nor a language class. It is a tutorial class for individuals who already have talents or aspirations and professionals seeking or in-training!

Italian Language Lessons for kids, students, adults (online/offline)
Are you interested in Italian culture and language? Are you planning to move to Italy for work, study, travel, volunteering? Then this class is for you! Italy is one of the countries where not that many citizens speak English language, therefore it might be difficult to adapt to locals without knowing Italian, at least basic one. By this class I would like to immerse you into Basic Italian language and culture. For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles. I will cover main functional areas of Italian grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and Italian is not so difficult as it may seem at first! The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.

Learn Italian from a Roman artist in Rotterdam - order your coffee like a pro
Ciao! I have been teaching Italian for the past ten years. I have taught privately and at language schools like La Scuola Italiana del Greenwich Village in New York and ItalCultura, the school of the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago. During the first few lessons I will make sure you have the tools to pronounce and identify all the sounds of the Italian language. This step is essential! And it will make everything easier afterwards. When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling. When you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I will customize my materials to your interests, needs and desired pace. And because you are learning from a native Italian you will also learn about Italian culture and history. You will absorb a way of thinking, not just grammar rules. I speak a bunch of languages so I know a thing or two about how tedious language classes can be. My terrifying French teacher in middle school made us repeat the same fake dialogue from a really bad book ad nauseam, over and over and over again. Some of those dialogues are carved in my brain: “Bonjour, je m’appelle Richard Drapeau, je viens du Canada, je suis Canadien…” When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling and we will go on “talking walks” because when you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I hold a degree in Lingue e Letterature Straniere (Foreign Languages and Literatures) from Università Roma Tre (equivalent to an American MA) and a Master’s of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. I wrote a thesis about translating a long epic poem by W. H. Auden and I tried to ride a horse across America.

Simone
Private Italian Tutor - To learn the Italian language with a Professor Trainee in languages as well as Interpreter and Translator.
As a native Italian speaker, interpreter and translator, I have acquired over the years full professional proficiency of the Italian language for teaching, interpreting and translating purposes. Since September 2011 as a professor trainee in languages and later as translator and interpreter during my undergraduate studies, I have been teaching Italian, English and French to high school students as well as to undergraduate students in Italy. My undergraduate studies were focused on multilingual Advertising and Marketing, cultural mediation, linguistics, interpreting and translating. Alongside academic courses I have additionally studied the Italian language, the English language and romance languages like French, Spanish, Portuguese and Latin and Greek vocabulary in order to achieve the full professional proficiency in Italian and the highest quality in interpreting and translating. My lessons will be focused on the acquisition of the full professional proficiency in Italian in Grammar, Writing, Speaking and Vocabulary and I can also help students with their school and undergraduate Italian programs. I can teach following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages starting from the A1 to achieve the C2 level.

Maria
Classical singing/ Vocal technique/ Music interpretation
Hey! Professional operatic soprano here :) . I am an opera singer and a dedicated vocal teacher with more than 10 years of experience in the profession. I hold a Master of Music with Distinction degree in Vocal Performance from the Royal College of Music in London, and a Bachelor of Music with Honours in Vocal Pedagogy from the Moscow University of the Humanities. I am truly passionate about teaching singing and vocal technique! I always work closely with each student, and tailor my lessons to fit student's needs and wishes best - that way together we always achieve fantastic results! Through my lessons, I will teach you the proper on-breath singing with a free and well-supported sound. This will enable you to tackle any kind of repertoire and feel secure and confident during singing. Apart from the technical aspects, we also work on the expressive side of music and learn to perform various repertoire - from operatic arias and musical theatre to pop songs, depending on my student's preferences. I am excited to work with students of any age and level of musical development - from the very beginners to advanced musicians! :)

Francesco
Italian / French course: beginner, intermediate, advanced
Hello everybody! My name is Francesco, I am Italian but I live in France, in Aix-en-Provence, for 3 years. I had my double baccalaureate in French and Italian (Esabac class, Franco-Italian course at the Lycée Dumont d'Urville) last year. Now I'm studying history and philosophy at the University of Aix-Marseille. Since the university leaves us 4 months of vacation during the summer, I decided to land in Amsterdam to find a job but at the same time I am passionate about language exchanges. That's why I offer you two types of courses: - Language Exchange: I can exchange in Italian, French and Spanish. You in the language you want (English, Dutch or others) - Italian and / or French courses: I will be your "teacher". I will help you improve your practical skills step by step. I specify that the word "professor" is ambiguous: it reminds us sometimes of a distant, cold, formal relationship. I would rather become your friend "in languages": this is also the best way to learn a language. Feel comfortable, light, able to overcome the fear of not having full control over our word. Do not hesitate to contact me, together we can discover a little bit these Latin languages ​​so warm and "musical". : D See you soon!!!

Stefano
Singing Lessons (Individual) - Pop, Jazz, Soul, Blues, Rock (in AMSTERDAM)
In my classes you will be deciding what to study, how to learn and in which way you want to approach singing and music in general. You will have the freedom to set up a plan and reach the designated goals with the help of my support. I will show you and teach you different singing techniques and guide you towards finding your personal and unique voice. I will adapt to your needs and will help you to achieve and surpass your goals! I strongly believe that: "The voice is an all-powerful instrument, capable of expressing deep feelings that perhaps no other musical instrument can do. It is directly connected with the soul and becomes the audible expression of it. It converts the invisible into visible, creates new sounds and colors, transforms emotion into music. The voice is a tool to discover, subject to continuous evolution and expansion; expansion that goes beyond our imaginable limits."
