Canto lessons recommendations
The human voice is considered to be the most beautiful musical instrument of all. All the other instruments, through their construction, try to imitate as closely as possible the human voice, which is without doubt the specific instrument of man, his closest and own one.
The term “bel canto” comes from Italian and means “beautiful interpretation”. In its general meaning, bel canto refers to the vocal style used in the 18th and 19th centuries, but its origins are dated back in the 16th century.

What do children learn during singing lessons?
Children will first get acquainted and then become familiar with music notes and music rhythms, while also learning musical pieces adequate to their age.
What do adults learn during singing lessons?
Adults learn to reproduce music sounds in all exactness, to correctly breathe and pronounce, to do voice modeling practice, and to learn music pieces. They can learn to form and develop their musical hearing, to express their emotions through music and, last but not least, to conquer over their fear of singing in front of an audience (friends included).
How much time is recommended for singing practice?
As much time as one feels necessary, as long as no excess is undergone – namely singing to the point of getting a hoarse throat. An optimum amount of time cannot be decided in all exactness: 30 minutes to an hour should be enough. But this choice depends on the strength characteristic to one’s body and vocal apparatus.
Are there eating & drinking recommendations? What should one be careful about?
Drinks that are either too hot or too cold should be avoided, as should food that is too salty or spicy, and – generally speaking – all types of food that will leave a “dry throat” feeling. Before singing, one should also avoid carbonated drinks and air conditioning.
