    Join our colleagues at Teatro Nuovo for the premiere of Bel Canto in Thirty Minutes: a quarantine recording anthology of the Vaccai book!

    The Vaccai Project is a daily online guided practice of basic skills for singers based on the famous lessons of Vaccai. 

    It is 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 our discussion forum. And opera fans will have a window into the singer’s preparation work.

    We use the trusted Vaccai method in an innovative way to refine the singer’s knowledge and practice of:

    • legato
    • registration
    • phrasing and expression
    • ornamentation
    • historical notation practices
    • diction and verse forms
    • libretto study

    Enhanced features since the Vaccai Project 2020:

    • additional translation skills videos
    • enhanced and expanded video content to guide your practice and ear
    • added weekly material connecting lesson skills to standard vocal repertoire
