Italian native Dr. Delphina Fabbrini is a voice teacher and coach, and has trained in Family and Systemic Constellation therapy at the Istituto Nemeton, under the direction of Dr. Marco Massignan.
Delphina earned her PhD in Classical Philology from the University of Florence, where she subsequently worked as a Research Fellow in Latin Literature and as a Professor of Latin.
The desire to integrate her love of language and poetry with a profound interest in the relationships between body, voice, and deep emotion, led Delphina to Kaya Anderson in 2010, under whose guidance she has been studying ever since. In 2013 she began her formal training as a Roy Hart Voice Teacher.
“It is about discovering the richness of the human soul, in all aspects. Working with written and 'mute' words was no longer enough for me. I felt the importance of giving voice to the words, of being more engaged with my voice and my body in this process of research and discovery.”
Delphina teaches vocal expression in her home town of Florence and throughout Italy. She has also taught at the Accademia dell’Arte in Arezzo, as well as in France and Germany. Delphina works with her students to strive for authenticity: the capacity to be in contact with one’s deeper feelings and emotions and the ability to express and to share them.
“The discovery of the different possibilities, qualities, and colours of the voice is deeply linked to our potential to recognize our own inner feelings and to express them, with sincerity and awareness. This process is all the more effective as we overcome the limitations we create through self-judgement.”
Delphina is a life-long learner and continues to pursue active research in vocal development and its applications in life and work. She has studied baroque singing with James Gray; traditional Italian music with Francesca Breschi; and is an active member of a vocal exploration research group led by Claudia Bombardella.
“Exploring and testing the possibilities of our voice always involves the active role of the body not only as the instrument of our voice, but also as the source from which to draw in our search for authenticity and awareness. That is the reason why I constantly encourage the process of learning to listen to our body, to give it voice, and hopefully to let it sing."
Delphina speaks Italian, English, and French.
