Italian Belcanto Singing

 

We are proud to be the creators of the first structured sequential method of vocal training in the Italian Belcanto singing tradition. Our goal is to contribute to the world of the performing arts with exceptional and unique individuals, that through their voices and talent are not only highly adept at their craft, but consummate, extraordinary artists.

Drawing from the legendary classical voice tradition of Belcanto, and past and living vocal masters, it is an exclusive and groundbreaking approach. The integration of Belcanto technique with ancient breathing practices and concentration exercises helps artists to expand their potential, and witness tangible self-growth of their artistic persona.

Through the understanding of the individual temperament, with the assistance of cognitive behavioral techniques, we help to strengthen them and directly impact their vocal development, building performers of discipline and character.

When you learn to sing with Belcanto technique, you open the instrument to its most opulent, gaining comprehensive control and a true and unique vocal identity. The temperament and timbre of the artist is the fingerprint of their particular instrument. This identity is drawn from within, not invented, and fully developed in the care of our institution. We focus on understanding and attending the whole person- every lesson, every breath, every note.

We have curated an institution that is centralized on the voice craft. We are profoundly passionate about technique and about how that technique gives you the ability to be wholly surrendered to the words you sing, and the words that your character sings through you. We are committed to the legacy that was bequeathed to us by great masters, teachers and colleagues; and are grateful to have the charge to carry the endowment to those that must inherit it.
