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)
We'd love to hear from you
We look forward to having you!
Private classes for 1 or 2 people
Semi-private classes for 3 to 5 people
We will study how to perform in harmony with music, stage styles, characterization and phrasing.
/ Music Analysis
Learn how to analyze arias, ensembles,
opera backgrounds, characters, phrasing, and more.
Ideal for those who have had to take a break from singing but want to continue studying opera!
German Pronunciation Course
German pronunciation is unique and there are many sounds not found in English. Even native Germans take German pronunciation classes to sing standard German. You will learn from an instructor who has mastered German pronunciation.
