My name is Sergio. I am a poet, teacher and translator living in London.
I have lived in both Italy and Russia and I am fluent in both languages. After studying foreign literature and philology in Italy, I worked as a teacher in Nizhnij Novgorod, Russia, where I have taught Italian to Russian students and Russian to foreigners.
The focus of my lessons is diction for opera singers, as having studied singing myself I find it most fascinating and creative working with sounds. Whether you are preparing your next aria, a recital or a role, we will go through each word of the score, until your pronunciation of every single sound will be perfect.
Where necessary explanation of the text and translation will be provided.
I charge 30.00 GBP per hour but I could ask for a small contribution in case you live far from me.
The first hour is usually a trial lesson and its half price.
Please text me or send me an email to arrange a lesson and discuss your needs.
I look forward to hearing you sing for me soon.
