Vocal Coaching and Singing Lessons with Professional Coach and Performer in East London

Methodology

I believe everyone has a unique and beautiful voice and that there should be no absolute standard of a “perfect” voice. We can all make choices about what we want to sound like, as long we keep our voice healthy and we are conscious of the options we have we it. My job as a vocal coach is to help you find your own voice and give you the tools to gain confidence and improve your technique, based on what your needs are.

My lessons include:

SINGING LESSONS:
Breathing technique
Good posture and core support
Expansion of range
Technique
Use of head, mixed and chest voice
Vocal style
Songwriting skills
Music theory

Experience

I have extensive experience both as a professional teacher for kids and adults in all genres (pop, jazz, classical and musical theatre), for individuals or groups. My lessons are fun and engaging and they’re tailored to the individuals’ needs. Using a wide range of exercises and techniques we work on a repertoire chosen by the student or myself, aiming to improve confidence, revealing and developing your voice, working on range, support, style and vocal colours, working towards your personal aims.

I am also a singer/songwriter and performer and I have been using my voice professionally for more than 15 years, with a solid technical and stylistic core acquired thanks to lessons with Angela Bucci and Silvia Gollini in Rome and I have also completed the Estill Voice Model Training level 1 and 2 with Charlotte Xerri. I have also studied classical, jazz and pop piano with Francesca Aloisi for 10 years and I have a diploma in Music Theory, Harmony and Sight Reading from A. Casella Conservatory of L’Aquila, Italy.

Perfect! I am very grateful for the patience shown by Valerio. I am already an admirer of his craft as a singer and a musician, but his teaching ability commands equal applause and recommendation.

I met Valerio this year as he was my vocal tutor in the group singing lessons for beginners at City Academy. He made such a good impression on me that I decided to take on private singing lessons with him. Valerio has helped me improve my confidence and I have gained great understanding of my vocal style and range. Valerio is very knowledgeable, easy-going and open-minded, with a great sense of humour. Classes are fun and varied since I get to choose my own repertoire, from pop and musical theatre to more traditional music in my native language (Spanish). Due to the current pandemic, we started having online lessons and I must say that they have become one of the highlights of my week!

Ludovico

Valerio Is an excellent teacher, he manages to take care of your voice respecting your style and your technique explaining all the dynamics that imply the correct use of the elements of singing. I'm very pleased to take lessons with him.

Patrick

5/5.

I have a musical background having been classically trained on the piano (19 years) and violin (7 years), so singing wasn't completely alien to me. Yet, thanks to his deep understanding of the human voice (both musically- and biologically-speaking), Valerio cuts deep into the core of my issues and pinpoints exactly on what I need to improve. Valerio provides many extremely useful tips to developing the techniques that any good singer must possess, and does so in a very patient and soft-spoken manner. You will be in safe hands.
