Singing Lessons in Amsterdam

Hi! I'm Cristina Grifone, professional soprano and passionate singing teacher in Amsterdam. Want to get rid of that sore throat after singing? Wish to expand your vocal range and volume, learn a better breathing technique and have more fun in singing?


My one-on-one singing lessons are open to all musical genres, age groups and levels. I offer baroque music, opera, pop, classical songs and more. Book a trial lesson!

Discover your Sound

We are all born with the capacity to use our voice freely, but the environment in which we grow up conditions and often frustrates our vocal expression. The result is that we became adults who are not able to enjoy the sound of our own voice. Now it is the time to embrace the discovery of Your sound.

Conscious Singing

Using a combination of techniques like Alexander technique, Feldenkrais and mindfulness will allow you to overcome all this. You will understand what happens in your posture, muscles, breathing, thoughts, while you sing and how to transform your attitudes from erroneous into functional. Experience the anatomical structures and their function in voice production, the breathing process, the connection between voice and emotions,.

Music Therapy

In a world where uncertainty, doubt, and productivity are the strongest narratives, it is likely we experience unwanted tension in our bodies and worries in our minds.These uncomfortable states are often the result of strong emotions we are not aware of or can't address properly. I can help you to become aware of and overcome your tensions and blockages.

Lesson Location

I teach from my home studio in Amsterdam West, but lessons in the comfort of your own home, depending on travel time and schedule, can be discussed.


Looking for a specific approach for children? I use coordination games and sound animated storytelling to stimulate attention and relaxation at the same time. They will learn to sing while having fun!

Exploration is the Key

Maintaining a curious attitude is important, during the lessons you will learn how to practice self-acceptance and be open to any outcome without losing the objective. In every genre of music you want to sing, be it pop, jazz, classical, what is needed is playfulness and passion. Part of my teaching process is also focused on the identifications of personal needs and Individual differences. I am open to dive into improvisation or accept suggestions about the repertoire.

Stay in the Flow

Too often, you can get frustrated because you have too high expectations and no idea what is needed to manifest your potential. Learn how to match challenges with skills without losing the enjoyment! During the lessons you will learn sounds before notes, practicing your musical ear and intuition. I call this process active learning. This method allows you to work on rhythm, melody and expression together, in an organic way. You will learn while trying and experimenting, having fun!

Embrace your Uniqueness

No matter if you are a beginner or an advanced singer, surely you have a unique talent that needs the right environment to manifest. Learning how to produce a beautiful sound in a safe environment will improve your connection with your body, your self-esteem and increase your confidence.

Use your expressive Potential

Are you singing on stage? Do you want to increase your expressiveness during performances? I truly believe we are not just singers, but performers. We need to master the use of the entire body to be able to hook the audience attention. It is when we sing that emotions are translated into musical motion and that's why I train fluency of movement and empathy during my lessons. My objective is to explore your expressive potential finding your personality in movement and sound. You will discover how to use the body effectively to achieve a musically expressive performance or a charismatic and highly personalised interaction with the audience.

Online Singing Classes

I also offer fun, comprehensive and motivating online voice lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced singers. Live feedback and instructions!

About Me

Singing has always been my passion! My parents told me I started singing before I was able to speak! This strong passion led me to study singing as soprano at the Conservatory S.Pietro a Majella in Naples, graduating in opera singing with laudem in 2008.However, I had already been collaborating with various orchestras and choirs as early as 2006, performing in Naples, but also in France and Finland. After my graduation in opera singing my interest for Early Music became stronger and stronger. I started to collaborate with many orchestras and baroque ensembles like Musica Fiorita Basel or I Turchinidi Antonio Florio, winning competitions and performing opera roles on stage.

Since 2013 I have performed as soloist in multiple recordings for labels like Glossa, Pan Classic or Brilliant Classics. In June 2018 I graduated from the Early Music Voice Department of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in soloistic interpretation of Baroque repertoire under the tutorship of Xenia Meijer. In the same year I started a collaboration, as a soloist at the show "Scala", with the Scapino Ballet Rotterdam and Combattimento ensemble touring around the Netherlands. From 2016 I gained familiarity with contemporary music thanks to the Recitativo Project - a video piece with live recitation and sound, in collaboration with Anglia Ruskin Cambridge University.
