About

luana maso singing lessons online mixed voice

I’m a voice teacher and vocal coach. I was born in Italy, but I’m based in The Netherlands.

Growing up in a family that has always shared a love for music, I took classical piano lessons for many years, but soon realised that I could express myself a lot better with my voice than with my hands.

I started singing at a very young age. I’ve studied with many teachers both in Italy and the United States, where I lived for some time while following a program of Music Industry Studies in California. Over time I’ve had the chance to test the effects of different methods on my voice.

I spent my time trying to understand how the voice works and looking for a technique that would allow me to sing consistently well and without effort. My aha! moment happened when I learned to mix. I could finally sing what I wanted, even those songs I thought I would never be able to sing.

I’ve performed in Italy and abroad in concerts and musicals, collaborating with professional musicians and producers in Italy, UK and the United States. In 2017 I released my first album of original songs called “Down the Rabbit Hole” and recorded in Nashville.

Today my mission as a teacher is to teach my students to develop their voice in the most natural and effective way possible, so that one day they will hopefully “forget” about technique and just sing, making room for personal expression and emotions.
