Grab this UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to learn the legendary Bel Canto technique now, so YOU can start singing like the opera legends! 

With my Maestra di Bel Canto, Aida Meneghelli, Verona, 2001.


The iconic opera singer Maria Callas and my singing teacher had the same singing teacher; the famous coloratura soprano Elvira De Hidalgo. 

It is a privilege and honour to be able to pass this great technique and tradition on to new singers.

"Hidalgo had the real great training, maybe even the last great training of the real Bel Canto."
(Maria Callas in conversation with Lord Harewood, 1968)

Recent Testimonials from some students!

"My experience with Elisabeth (The bel canto coach) it is being transformative in many levels. She really made me understand how to use my soprano voice efficiently, and due to the technique help me out to expand my range safely without putting unnecessary weight on it, which is something very rare into the classical genre, and it is pivotal for singers like me that love singing rock, metal even pop. 

And needless to say that Elisabeth ( The bel canto coach) has one of the most beautiful voices! It is really like to hear those legends from the past (pure bel canto coloratura). I highly recommend her to anyone that really wants to sound professional and without restrictions of any kind." 

(Valesska, soprano)

The obvious choice.

"Elisabeth's coaching transformed my voice from tiny, and limited to the lowest part of my range into one with power, control, and high notes in 3.5 months. I believe this course is the obvious choice for anyone wanting to take their voice to the next level."

(Lars - Tenor, Bel Canto student)


Now YOU can learn the same technique, and transform yourself as a singer

You already have the VOICE, the TALENT and the PASSION - all you need is the right technique.

Singers often come to me asking for my help with one or more problems:
 
  • can not hit or hold high notes 
  • problems singing long phrases on one breath
  • uneven register
  • tension in their jaw and throat, and a tired or sore throat from singing!
  • problems with placement of the voice
  • stage fright - I use mental exercises - from sport and performance psychology - to deal with this!!

Some singers have stopped singing altogether, due to problems with their throat. Many have already been trained by one or more teachers, thinking it is their fault they cannot do things right. 

If this is YOU - it is NOT your fault!! 
It is a sad fact that 70% of singers develop throat and voice problems at some point in their career! 

Often the problem is the singing teacher, who has trained the singer to do the exact opposite of what they should be doing (I see that a lot!) 
Many teachers do not know what APPOGGIO really means, or understands how to breathe correctly. 

When I started my training, 27 years ago, I was not able to sing any high notes without gasping for air. I had no clue how to breathe properly. The only thing I had was an incredible vocal range, all the way up to B6, but I did not know how to use it.

Then I was transformed into a Bel Canto singer who was able to sing more than 100 notes from the high C and up in my concerts, never having a tired throat, never running out of breath. It was a life changing experience!

Various press clips from my concerts

When my career started to take off with great press and offers, my youngest child, at the time, was diagnosed with health problems that made it impossible for me to continue traveling. I stopped performing and dedicated myself to my family, in addition to being an artist manager and vocal coach. Being able to help other singers fulfil their potential makes me very happy. 

Bel Canto to the People - The Aina Method!

It is a framework to become a Bel Canto Master Singer, giving you the exact same legendary technique I was trained in. Drawing on my extensive experience as a singer, singing teacher and manager, I have added a module about a crucial topic, often ignored:

Mental training for opera singers, including confidence building.

I created this course with one goal: saving YOU time and money, while maintaining the highest possible level of quality! 

 

With my dear Maestra, Aida Meneghelli, Verona, 2001.

Secret Mental Training Formula!

  • You'll start to learn how to overcome negative mindsets and turn them around to positive ones.

Master Warm-Up Blueprint!
  • These are the same warm up exercises (vocalizes) that I do ever day. They are the ones I learned from Meneghelli, 26 years ago.
  • Before each of the vocalises I explain exactly WHAT you are going to sing and HOW you are going to do it. You will watch a professional singer and a beginner do the vocalises, under my guidance. By having good warm up routines you are setting yourself up for much better performances. 
  • Warm ups are a great opportunity to fine tune everything: breathing, placement of voice, pronunciation of vowels, etc. 
  • You'll get way more out of your singing.

The Ultimate Cost of Inaction

I guarantee that if you don't take action it could cost you:

  • A Fortune: a real opportunity to be paid what YOU are really worth.
  • Your Health: 70% of people who use their voice in a professional capacity get voice problems. This is a very serious problem. Failing to fulfill your potential can also lead to stress, and anxiety taking a toll on your well-being.
  • Your Purpose: Imagine the cost of not living life with a purpose. Getting to the end of the road wondering what could have been, and looking back with regret having neglected YOUR destiny. To me, that sounds like one of life's biggest failures.
  • Regret: The weight of regret is the heaviest burden you can carry

Don't let the cost set in. Make the investment in yourself, so you can start the transformation to becoming a Bel Canto Master Singer TODAY.

Frequently asked questions

Can I really learn how to sing online?

I have coached singers via Zoom, and Skype for years. As long as you have a good internet connection it works well.

Can I use this technique for other genres?

Yes. The Commander In Chief has used her Bel Canto training to sing: heavy metal, acoustic music, musicals, Christian music, classical crossover, and classical. 

Can I be a beginner?

Yes. No previous training is required. You can be a complete beginner, or a more advanced singer. You do not have to know, or study any music theory in order to take this course.

Will I get a permanent vibrato on my voice?

Vibrato is a sign that you are breathing correctly. You need it in order to sing classical music properly. However, if you are trained right then you can turn it on and off at will, so that you can sing other music genres as well. This is what The Commander In Chief does.

What about different time zones?

I am offering my group lessons both in the morning, and in the evening CET.

Can I get private lessons with Elisabeth?

Only through the offers in this course.

AINA ELISABETH HILLTOUT - WHO I AM & WHY I DO THIS?

Born in Norway, I had a childhood that was very far from the life I have lived as a grown up. I could easily highlight the good parts and say

From I was 10 until I was 13 I was on stage with my dad, performing with great success. At school I was a top student, and in high school I was the president of the student council... yada, yada, yada.

That would be the glossy, perfect bio we have all read a million times before. What makes me different, is THIS part of my story:

When I was 7 years old, my dad walked out on us, and we lost everything - including the big family house we had just built. From I was 8 until I was 13 we lived in a tiny home without an indoor bathroom or indoor toilet, in the bad part of a new town, where I knew no one. The house was very old and winters in Norway are cold - as in very cold. My home-made, narrow bed was in front of a huge window that was completely covered with thick layers of ice, on the inside, during the long winter months. I went to bed frozen and I woke up frozen. We never had any money to do anything. It was all about just affording the basics. That was the easy part of my childhood. 

Dealing with an alcoholic, unhinged stepfather was a totally different challenge. He hated me profoundly. His verbal, emotional and mental abuse quickly became part of my daily life. I know how it feels like to grow up with real FEAR, always having to anticipate the crazy person's next move, their next attack - always trying to be one step ahead, as a matter of survival. I know what it means to run for your life. I know what it means to see the ones you care about being physically harmed, right in front of your eyes. I know what it does to your confidence. No child should have to live through that hell.  Sadly, way too many children, all over the world do. 

I had the drive and determination to move away and take control of my own life, at the age of 18, just when I graduated high school. I never made it to my own graduation ceremony, despite being the president of the student board, with a speech to deliver. I was still in shock from having lost the one person I trusted the most in a car accident - my oldest brother. Experiencing such a profound loss, so suddenly, at such a young age, changes you forever. You look at your life as "Life Before and Life After." I know a lot of people will recognise that. 

My accomplishments are mine, and mine alone. At 19 I worked in the biggest bank in Norway, on a nationwide marketing campaign. I had specialised in economics and marketing in high school. When I was 21 I started studying at the prestigious Norwegian School of Economics, in their MBA program. But something was missing in my life, and when I saw the movie Amadeus, I knew what it was. I HAD TO sing opera! 

I took two young children and a husband, who was always abroad for work, with me. We moved to Verona, Italy, without speaking a word Italian, without knowing anyone there. After some months searching for the right singing teacher, I found Aida Meneghelli. Nothing about that new life was easy, and we made a lot of sacrifices, but it was worth it. 

My repertoire included the arias for The Queen of the Night, Lucia di Lammermoor, Konstanze, Olympia, Elvira and Lakmé. 
Since then I have dedicated my life to helping others fulfil their potential and dreams. I tend to say that Doing the impossible IS my job. A job I love. 

I have extensive experience as a concert singer, Bel Canto teacher, manager, producer and confidence builder.

I LOVE coaching singers, seeing their joy when they "get it," and singing all of a sudden becomes easy. The more singers I can help the better it is.

I have lived in 5 countries with my family. I have just returned to my motherland, Norway, with my English husband, four kids and our Giant Schnauzer.

My dad drove across Norway to be there for my first, big opera concert. 

11 years old, performing with my dad. I loved every moment.
