"Being a singing teacher is so rewarding. I love to see my students grow and take their first steps into the music industry. As a singer and a performer, I've learnt that the best way to feel confident on stage is to develop good control over your voice.  The IVA method allows you to do this by both giving you a thorough understanding of your instrument, and fixing your personal technical issues, so that you reach your vocal optimum."

Simona teaches on Mondays and Thursdays.
