I'm an italian tenor, born in 1981 in Turin. After singing 6 years as a pop and jazz singer, I started studying opera singing at Conservatorio G. Verdi in Turin, quite late, at the age of 20 yo. In 2005 I won Spoleto International singing competition. I started taking private lessons from the great bulgarian soprano Raina Kabaivanska (google her if you never heard her name before...you'll be quite surprised!) then she took me to her dear friend Luciano Pavarotti who became my teacher for 6 months (each day) before dying. I started a very busy international career in the end of 2007, sang all over the world in some of the finest opera houses such as Teatro Alla Scala in Milan, Metropolitan Opera House in NY, Royal Opera House in London, Wiener Staatsoper, Teatro Real in Madrid, Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Les Arts Valencia, Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, NCPA in Beijing, Staats Oper Hamburg, Warsaw State Opera, Opera du Rhin Strasbourg, Royal Opera House Copenaghen, Royal Opera House Stockholm, Finnish National Opera, Belgrade Staate Opera and many others.Always singing the main characters sharing the stage with international opera stars such as Placido Domingo, Leo Nucci, Raina Kabaivanska, Elina Garanca, Anita Rachvelishvili, Violeta Urmana, Irina Lungu, Gianandrea Noseda, Bruno Bartoletti, Nicola Luisotti, Robert Carsen, Christof Loy, Luca Ronconi, Robert Dornhelm, Barrie Kosky and many others.
I don't like to waste my and other people time. Music is a serious business and to become an opera singer there are no short cuts. Before or later you will face very hard difficulties due to pressure or changes in your body due to ageing.I'll not give you three tips to sing high notes or three vocalized to learn coloratura and agilities.I can hear you singing and I'll honestly tell you whether I can improve or completely rebuild your technique.To have a singing teacher is like to have a father/mother or a best friend helping you reach your goals and make your passion a career. The relationship requires a lot of trust that, in my humble opinion, has to come from many sides together: the way to communicate, how much you like the way your teacher sounds when he/she does exemples and the achievements he/she had in their life.Have a lesson/audition with me and judge yourself how much I can uderstand your instrument. I don't believe in perfect techniques. I believe each technique can be good if the direction is good for your throat, mind and body. I look forward to hear from you and answer your questions.
