    English lessons by Native speaker from London. All ages!

    I specialize in teaching children and adults. I make learning creative and fun and completely tailor made to each student's learning style and strengths. I place a strong emphasis on intuitive learning through speaking and reading and I let the grammar and vocabulary knowledge build naturally. I do follow textbooks when required but I also lesson plan around it, using the student's interests to make the class interesting.

    About Me

    A versatile vocalist specialising in pop,rock, jazz, soul, alternative,trip hop , funk and blues as well as musical theatre and cross over genres, Olga has been a vocalist and violinist since she was 7 years old, participating over the years in classical, folk and rock choirs, opera ensembles, orchestras and musical theatre performances.

    Olga has extensive experience as a session singer, as a songwriter and as a performer along with her experience as an ensemble/band leader and violinist. Furthermore she has trained in Popular Vocal Performance and Production at The London Centre of Contemporary Music in London where she was awarded a BMUS (Hons) and in Music Pedagogy at Middlesex University, London where she was awarded The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Music.

    Upon watching Olga perform one is instantly allured by her expressive vocal and the vulnerable yet tempestuous honesty with which she expresses the lyrics making each song her own.Having a 3 octave range and having received training in various styles of music along with years of experience, Olga can adapt to a variety of genres and sing in the original style of the piece, improvise or re-arrange a song into something completely new and unexpected.Olga also teaches small workshops (pop/rock bands and choirs) and works as a vocal coach on a one-to-one basis.

    She has proven adept in helping people with vocal problems or vocal strain, having suffered from GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) and a resulting nodule herself in the past and having not only sung professionally and taught despite her vocal problems but also overcome them. The lessons focus on relaxing the throat, tongue, jaw and body, finding vocal freedom, resonance and power through mastering and understanding technique and breathing while also nourishing expression and diversity through studying a variety of styles and unlocking each individual's original voice,steering away from mimicking the original artist or karaoke type singing.

    Olga believes that anyone can sing and that the key is to help her students get in touch with their true selves and with their honest expression. She often uses yoga and meditation techniques as well as some simple acting exercises in order to help her students "unlock" their emotions and unleash their voice.

    Finally Olga also has substantial experience working with children and teenagers in a secondary music classroom and extra curricular activities (including choir,orchestra and rock band).She has helped teenagers find their voice and broaden their tastes to other styles of music,prepare for auditions and boost their creativity with songwriting lessons. She has even helped people acquire a sense of pitch and musicality from scratch.

    After 10 years of training and working in the popular music scene, Olga has recently resumed her training in classical singing in order to expand her skills further.

    Have you always dreamed: of singing with freedom and resonance, with ease and flexibility? of belting out your favourite rock ballad and spellbinding the crowd? of having a huge range and expressive power that makes people’s jaws drop? I can help you free your voice and find your true sound through my holistic teaching approach. I will help you get back in touch with your breath and the freedom you once felt in your voice as a child. I will help with any relaxation, placement, strain issues you may have and extend your range and give you resonance and power. If you have any health issues that may affect your voice I can give you advice and guidance, special exercises , yoga routines etc - having suffered myself from GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) and a resulting small vocal node in the past, and having dealt with various health issues - despite which I have managed to still work as a singer! I can teach you to: - Improvise and write songs. - Develop your expression. - Develop your technique without losing your own unique sound. - Extend your range to at least 3 octaves (sometimes even 4!) - Breath control and control of your entire range. - Sing in a variety of techniques and styles- become a versatile singer! - Basic guitar/keyboard skills if requested. - Music Theory lessons upon request. I have an acute ear for detail and upon our first session and hearing you we will be able to discuss your voice and how to move forward.

    Learn the language of love with me _ italiano per tutti
    Italian is my mother tongue, I love its sound, its grammar structure, the culture it expresses. I hope to pass on to my students my passion and enthusiasm, thanks to the experience I made at university, where I studied ancient Greek and Latin, then working as a teacher in high school, and gaining the DITALS, which is a diploma to teach Italian to foreigners. I have experience with students of different levels and age, and I gear each lesson towards my students' goals and preferences.
