September 7 – November 22, 2020
Welcome to Bel Canto Boot Camp! We are proud to have developed and refined a course that teaches the elements of bel canto singing, Italian style and period notation practices, ornamentation and variation, and classic Italian poetry and libretto form, all based on Vaccai’s Metodo di canto.
For the cost of roughly one hour of live instruction in New York City, where we are based, you will:
- Receive daily lessons posted on the website, private Facebook group, and directly to your email inbox to inspire and guide your practice Monday through Saturday
- Take part in a lecture and community discussion based on the week’s work every Sunday at 3:00pm Eastern Time (NYC) via Zoom
- Submit practice videos for daily feedback from our expert team of mentors in a private Facebook group (encouraged but not obligatory!)
Contact us if the fee prohibits your participation.
The Vaccai Project is conceived as a daily online guided ‘practice diary’ of basic skills for singers, open to singers of all ages and levels of expertise, with weekly Zoom meetings to explore material in more detail and answer questions arising from your practice.
We welcome teachers, coaches, pianists, and conductors to join with singers in our interactive forum and our talented team of mentors provide feedback on practice videos. We all learn from each other!
We use the trusted Vaccai method in an innovative way to refine the singerâ€™s knowledge and practice of:
- phrasing and expression
- historical notation practices
- diction and verse forms
- libretto study
Refine your technique. Unlock your imagination.
