I’m a simple – yet complex – human being who is loved by God, who took human form to show us His love, whose love is teaching me to love others. I’m a depression survivor. I love my wife and my daughter. I teach singing technique.
I’m a certified IVTOM voice teacher.
“I love to sing prayers”
Hey, it’s great to see you here! My name is Pietro, an Italian who moved to the UK in 2005.
I’ve been teaching voice lessons in my private studio in West London and via Skype worldwide since 2011. As well as working with adults, I’ve had the joy of teaching lots of children in a fun and creative way, either privately and or with music service companies that specialise in kids lessons , in some of the local schools or educational centres (Downe Manor Primary School, Navnat Community Centre, Ealing Music Service, etc.). I run workshops and group lessons for different institutions, especially for church worship teams.
I don’t come from a musical family, so church is where I first began experiencing music. I had always dreamt of singing and making music, but my lack of knowledge and my insecurities led me to the conclusion that I was not really made for this. This thought was supported by the fact that I had a school music teacher who often had a word of discouragement and failure for me. Nevertheless, singing had always been very intimate for me. It meant a deeper connection with God, whenever “I sang my prayers”.
Looking back, I am grateful I didn’t give in through the years because music is ingrained in my daily life today! I hope you don’t give in either, whatever your dream may be!
At the age of 19 I decided to approach voice training and I studied classical for a short period of time. Later in London, I graduated from Tech Music Schools in Popular Music Performance and Vocals on the Higher Diploma (BIMM). At BIMM, I had the opportunity to experience different types of vocal technique approaches, which made my studies more even more meaningful.
As soon as I was introduced to the technique of the “MIX”, I felt some tangible changes in my voice in a short time. That is why I decided to study with some of the top-notch expert teachers of the Mix until I joined IVTOM as an accredited Voice Teacher. IVTOM isn’t just a method: we teach our students good, natural and healthy singing.

I am very passionate about Worship music (CCM, Contemporary Christian Music). I am currently working on my album “Soldier“, where I’ll share my heart with you. It will be out by the first half 2018. Can’t wait to share!
My heart is too see people encounter God and experience his love for them through the power, beauty and gentleness of worship music. This is more than singing a song, it’s more than showing your talent, it’s less about you and more about Him. Hope the “prayers” I’ve sang will inspire you!
For about 10 years, I was part of the Worship Band “BkB”. We released our first album in June 2013. We expressed our music by touring around Italy, the UK and France (La Republique Theatre). They released their second album in September 2016, where I recorded two of the songs as well as backing vocals.
In 2012, I recorded a single for the American DJ and producer Roger M. (Phethouse Record Label). Since 2006, I have worked on recording projects and live sessions with different artists in the Christian Music in the UK and Italy.
Some of them are: Luciano Manfrinato, Cheryl Porter (Mariah Carey, Bocelli), Hez Thuo – arranger and producer (Sony, MTV, BBC), Troy Miller (Amy Winehouse), Fabio D’Andrea (Cannes Film Festival, Katherine Jenkins) and many more.
