An Italian tenor, from Rome, Yuri is passionate about teaching and has more than 18 years of experience in performing and 15 in passing on in a friendly and relaxed what he keeps enthusiastically learning.

During the years he has always been fascinated by the Art of Singing and read books, studied with different teachers, attended seminars, colleges and university's courses in order to learn the more he could about singing technique.

He moved to the UK in 2003. Based in London, he now teaches singing and coaches Italian to opera singers, alongside his own concert performance schedule.

Yuri teachers all styles of music, not just classical.

"I am a genre-flexible singer with a broad experience in performing and teaching. Singing is the most natural thing for me and I enjoy working with others on such a vital and delicate form of expression.

As a teacher, I like to consider myself a "reflective practitioner" and always try to make sure things are clear for my pupils so that they can grow independent in what is, in reality, a journey of discovery. In order to do that, you have to be eclectic and on the look out for new ways of explaining things and, ultimately, be constantly a learner yourself.

It is important to remember than not everybody wants to be a star. That's why I don't believe in pressurise the students, but in let them discover the pleasure and gratification that singing can bring to everybody... whatever their level is. At the end of the day, this is the reason why you sing: to feel better about yourself and share this feeling with others.

Singing means a lot to me and coaching others to master their voice gives me deep fulfillment. At times, you have to be a mentor and a friend. It ends up to be more than helping somebody to improve their technique... it comes to be a real development of one's own self, for both the teacher and the student!"
