I Help Opera Singers fulfill their potential with the legendary Bel Canto technique!
The iconic soprano Maria Callas and my singing teacher had the same singing teacher - Elvira de Hidalgo. I was trained 6 days a week for many years, the old school way.
It is my pleasure to pass this legendary Bel Canto technique on to new singers.
"Without Bel Canto you cannot sing any opera, as a matter of fact not even the most modern ones." Maria Callas, 1968.
With my Maestra di Bel Canto, Aida Meneghelli, in Verona, Italy, 2001.
The sad fact is that the world is full of "specialists" who knows everything about singing - but they cannot sing properly themselves. Learning to sing from them is like learning to speak French from someone who does not speak the language.

The voice is created in the mouth, NOT the throat!
Sing louder without pushing!
An open throat and an open mouth is not the same thing!

What I do to help other singers
I coach singers on all levels, all over the world, 1:1 on Zoom. I do not coach children, and minimum age is 16.
In 2021 I spent three months, working around the clock, creating an easy to follow, yet comprehensive online Bel Canto course. My goal was the make it possible for singers to save time and money, while maintaining the highest standard of coaching.
It is possible to do the course alone, as self study, but most singers combine it with lessons with me, for maximum progress and results.
