Each class will be a week of intensive vocal work for a group of 4 singers. All lessons will be held in the grand Palazzo del Vescovo, in the village of Dongo. This palace houses the Upper Lake Como Music Institute and the International Piano Academy (www.comopianoacademy.com).
Each morning begins with a group AT class, and then each participant will have a private voice lesson and a private coaching session. Every late afternoon, there will be a performance class, which will include more work with the Alexander Technique. The pianist and coach for the course is Terrence Woollen, an exceptional musician and AT teacher.
Individual 3 day Intensive Consultations can be arranged during the month of July.
Lake Como is a dramatic and romantic setting. Since Roman times the lake has attracted artists, notably Liszt and Verdi (who composed La Traviata here) and in this century, physicists and celebrities. It is a stimulating place to focus on singing while also vacationing.
