Vaccai Summer 2021

Twelve weeks of guided practice beginning June 7

Welcome to Bel Canto Boot Camp! Our signature course teaches the elements of bel canto singing based on Vaccai’s Metodo di canto. We use the trusted Vaccai method in an innovative way to refine each singer’s knowledge and practice of:

  • legato
  • registration
  • phrasing and dynamics
  • ornamentation and variation
  • historical notation practices
  • Italian diction and poetic forms
