Alessia

Alessia is a Montreal-based musical theater performer and voice teacher. Alessia has been training as a vocalist under several instructors for several years. She has studied musicology at Sorbonne University in France and is currently pursuing another music degree at ConcordiaUniversity. 

During her studies, Alessia often wondered what being in a mentor’s position would resemble, helping others discover the joy that singers feel as they learn to unleash their unique voice and reach their full potential. This pushed her to expand her knowledge in vocal pedagogy. Throughout her journey pursuing vocal health, Alessia came to the realization that any kind of pain when singing is wrong. She specializes in teaching beginners and is dedicated to making sure her students develop habits that will give them longevity as singers. 

Alessia believes in a holistic approach to vocal technique and she teaches speech level singing. She collaborated with her students catering them with specific exercises to help their voices grow. Singing is first and foremost an art of the body, it is about learning to feel the vibrations caused by our vocal cords when we produce sound. It requires every one of our muscles to be relaxed, yet aligned, to allow notes to come out with intention. Driven by passion, Alessia believes that anyone can learn to sing. She is committed to accompanying you in your journey to becoming the musical storyteller you’ve always wanted to be.
