Reviews from students

  • I think that, for an opera singer, not only the voice and the vocal technique are important, but also the stage presence. Knowing exactly what needs to be done on stage to look "real" allows you to be calmer and more confident. (Opera singer)

  • The teacher and participants were lovely. The practice was informative and exciting. (Music conservatory student)
