Have You Always Dreamed of Singing Classical?

My Voice Studio Has Re-Opened

Address: Vocal Motion
San Rafael, CA 94901

After a long and, for many, grueling year, my singing studio is open again. If you are fully vaccinated and have always wanted to sing classical music - German lieder, English composers, French song masters, Italian art songs or opera - schedule a lesson! I am a therapeutic voice and Alexander Technique teacher who works with singers of all ages. I teach at J.B. Piano store on Irwin Street in San Rafael, where we will be safely easing back, with face shields, after hours on their lovely stage in their large, airy showroom. How often can you have a singing lesson accompanied by a beautiful Steinway? 

A voice teacher since 1997 and an Alexander Technique educator since 2002, I will teach you the essentials of beautiful classical singing and how it differs from other styles of singing. We'll explore breath coordination, how the body/mind/spirit produces easy and flowing tones (legato singing), resonance, vowel and consonant use - all that good stuff. And, if you enjoy other languages, you will be in your element: We can sing in Italian, German, French, Spanish, even Russian (if you know the language. I've forgotten how to read Cyrillic!)

And, as a therapeutic voice teacher, I can help work with you on any singing or speech difficulties you might be experiencing. Of course, I also teach other styles of singing, such as Broadway, old standards and pop. 


I have been teaching voice in San Rafael since 2000. After a 3-year training, I was certified in 2002 by the Alexander Technique Institute in San Francisco. I received my bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from California State University-Hayward in 1990. Born in Rome, Italy, I come from a family of opera singers and actors. A singing performer, pianist and Bay Area music director since 1997, I am fluent in Italian and enjoy specializing in the Italian/Neapolitan repertoire. I'm a Level 2 Reiki practitioner, certified in shamanic healing from HCH in Lafayette and am an avid Aikido practitioner and meditator. I continue my vocal studies with mezzo soprano Erin Neff of the San Francisco Opera chorus.
