Some of my students.
Eleonora Braconi is a young singer, composer of some songs, my student from 2010 to 2016.
Weekly student 2014/2017, now a monthly session. She arrived with a technical problem that made here not being well in the pitch and a too much air in the sound. We worked just technically for 18 month and then I could convince her, who always refused, to perform in a class Recital. This is her first demo recorded in three hour in autumn 2016 after the summer pause. She is now involved in composing her first songs, she is in a band, they are looking for a producer.
Livia Bigi was an amateur popular singer. She is a weekly student since november 2014. She had the characteristics to become a professional so not only I gave her the technical skills her natural beautiful voice did not have to be more refined and effective, but I also worked on her attitude toward music and thinking how to use voice for music, changing what made of her an amateur and in 2017 she made her first gig as professional. She has a weekly gig in Rome and will shortly sing in a show of the main italian writer and performer Stefano Benni. We are focusing on three different repertoires: fado and latinoamerican music, french chansons, roman stornelli. She is starting putting in voice neapolitan songs and I would like to work also on Renaissance repertoire.
Rita Negrini is a young singer, my student October 2015/ December 2017. Great personality, great voice, she sings since she is very young. We have worked to start giving her a voice for a career, she is now understanding if she wants to put into this project true commitment and daily energies.

Winner of some singing competitions, she participated to tv shows for teen singers and has been called to open concerts for professionalson a regular basis, she sung the song closing the show at the Christmas concert of teens 2011 for Sky.
