The natural approach to learning at Nella Luce Studio is inspired by Concettina’s Italian family upbringing, her own action research, the Reggio Emilia Philosophy, Goju-Ryu, the late Reginald Byer’s natural approach to training the voice.  Furthermore Glenys Fowles, Dallas Watts, John Charadia, Amanda McPaul Browne have been great mentors on her artistic journey as well as Concettina’s experience in listening to her inner voice. The program is a combination of planned and improvised lessons that aims to meet the divergent learning needs of the students. Nella Luce Studio is about holistic learning, where students are encouraged to make connections in an interdisciplinary way.

In 2012 Concettina founded the  concept, “Nella Luce Studio”  which in English means “Into the Light Studio” and inspired by  the 2012 Lenten Concert.  I was thanked by two members of the audience for bringing into light the beauty of music and the artists – one of them said – “if you had not done this concert no one would have known about the artists.” This concept which names my service as a teacher, performer and concert organiser.  It is a service that I believe helps bring into light music, literature, artists, peoples strengths and growth  points, the mystery, the unknown or something new.
