Information About Germana - Blackheath teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Germana:
Having grown up in a musical family I began my artistic training at the age of 10, attending piano lessons, first classical and then jazz.
Soon afterwards I undertook private singing lessons with some of the most popular italian singers and singing teachers (M ° Paola Arnesano, M ° Mario Rosini), improving my technique by attending various workshops and masterclasses held by international artists (such as Bob Stoloff, Michelle Hendricks and Anita Wardell). In the meantime, I earned a Bachelors degree in Sciences of Music and Performing Arts and a First-level Professional Masters Programme in Music and Audiovisual Communication.
I finished my singing training getting a Masters degree in Jazz Music (Second Level Experimental Academic), under the guidance of another of the most famous Italian jazz singers and singing teachers: M ° Giovanna Montecalvo. I've also attended EVT (Estill Voicecraft ) courses and under the watchful eye of both M ° Montecalvo and Alejandro Saorin Martinez (Certified Course Instructor with Testing Privileges of the Estill EVT method (VoiceCraft)) I earned a certificate of figure proficiency (CFP) in Estill Voice Training.
As a naturally curious person who is always excited to add to their skill set, I have eagerly set out to discover the connections between singing and body, as well as finding out more about how music works. Having a particularly strong interest in rhythm, I have attended private drums and percussion lessons and workshops and performed a number of gigs where I played percussion and sang at the same time.
As my education was ongoing, I started to attract a lot of attention for my versatile voice and ease in
different music styles. I was therefore soon engaged in several concerts, shows and sound recordings in Italy (as a soloist, band leader and in choirs) and I currently perform around London and the UK.
I have already had the opportunity to use my skills both in practical settings as a singer, singing teacher, vocal coach and teaching assistant (both in Italy and in the UK), to english students - both privately and in collaboration with schools and tutoring services - from groups of young children and choirs to teenagers and adults (Therefore I am already in possesion of a DBS check) and had the chance to look into the UK educational system (such as ABRSM) to prepare a student for exams and auditions.
I like to model my lessons on the student that I interface with, creating a musical education course tailored for them, taking into account their goals.
I teach to students of all ages and levels who have always been satisfied with the accomplished results. I love to make my students concious of what they are able to achieve and of their potential: I've always tried to be a guide for them. The reason why I really love to teach is that it is extremely gratifying for me to see how they improve over the course of their lessons and became autonomous and self-confident, pushing themselves beyond their limits and enjoying the freedom that singing brings.
