GIOVANNA RUMMA

"I began singing technique at the age of 16 and I have the Licence of Certified Master Teacher in Voice Training. I spent my last ten years studying my voice and its connection with dance, acting, feelings emotions, body, and spirit. So I worked to know other techniques like Alexander Technique, participating in various workshops about acting, voice, and movement"
