 Victoria works nationally in the UK as an Italian coach.

Alongside performing, Victoria works as an Italian coach - she is passionate about preserving authentic lyric diction of sung Italian. Her natural curiosity for languages, native fluency in Italian and comprehensive understanding of other Latin-based languages coupled with first hand-experience as a singer and Italian teacher lend themselves ideally to this role, creating a balanced knowledge between the voice and the Italian language.

Currently she coaches Italian privately in London and online. Previously she coached Italian at the Royal Academy of Music, shadowed and assisted the language coaches at Opera North for their productions of Gianni Schicchi and Aida in 2019. During her time at ON, she lead a Q&A pre-performance talk, discussing the role of the Italian language coach in opera with the University of Leeds Italian language department. Prior to that, she coached the chorus of La bohème for Leeds Youth Opera and the Hallé Youth Choir for an Italian gala in 2018.

I took language coaching from Victoria to improve my Italian text in a baroque opera role. I found it very helpful to speak through all my role's texts with a language coach who is also herself a singer and get specific corrections to develop my way to speak the Italian text and find correct emphasis with texts. Victoria is very positive, so there is a wonderful atmosphere to work. She helped me a lot to get my Italian vowels brighter and get the text more fluent so it is then also easy to sing.

 

I can totally recommend Victoria!

I find Victoria an excellent coach and her knowledge of the opera and song repertoire makes her an invaluable aid when tackling new material. She is my go to for Italian language questions, as I know that however basic or complicated the question, she will get back to me quickly and answer with kindness and patience.
