Music Lessons Offered in Manchester

Submitted by Anne D'Olivio

Experienced voice, piano and percussion teacher, Anne D'Olivo, is now accepting students for lessons in the Manchester area.

Children and adults of all levels of ability from beginner to advanced, are welcome. D'Olivo recently moved from Londonderry to Manchester with her family and is delighted to be in the neighborhood.

Her daughter Jenna attends the Long Trail School and her other daughter Caitlin is a student at MEMS.

D'Olivo has taught music for many years both in England and in the United States and wishes to encourage and nurture music making in the local area.

A graduate of Hull University in England with a B.A. Honors in Music, she has studied voice with Metropolitan Opera soprano Christine Flasch, plus internationally-renowned sopranos Dee Tigue and Nan Nall. She studied piano with Bernard King who is professor at The Royal Scottish Academy of Music.

She has performed many times on the Dorset Playhouse stage and will appear in the upcoming Cabaret on September 11 and 12. D'Olivo is the long-time resident percussionist for the Opera Theatre of Weston and will perform with them in The Little Prince in January.

D'Olivo's classical training can be applied to all musical styles and students can choose to study a wide variety of music, from opera to pop. Special care is given to beginners and music theory and general musical knowledge is taught alongside performance technique.

Since each student has different strengths, lessons are tailored individually to the student's needs. Voice students will also learn the development of breath, diction and a healthy production of the voice.

Emphasis is on creating a solid technique, on building repertoire and, most of all, on having fun and enjoying the world of music.
