Opera singing lessons

Opera singing is unique in the vocal world. Opera requires substantial levels of physical energy and involves projecting the voice to the back of a theatre over an orchestra without any amplification. Opera singers therefore have to undergo specific training  to ensure they can meet these demands. The style of singing used in Opera is called “Bel Canto” and this form of singing produces a full even tone and great flexibility in the voice.
