The Artful SInger | How to Breathe Book for Singers & Actors | www.theartfulsinger.comThe Artful SInger | How to Breathe Book for Singers & Actors | www.theartfulsinger.com My methodology is routed in traditional Bel Canto as taught by Lamperti.  
The ideals of Bel Canto are evenness of tone, flexibility, “chiascuro”
(light & dark resonance), and above all, vocal health.  
Scientific research has proven that pure Bel Canto technique produces minimal 
stress on the vocal organs and thus is the “natural” way to sing.  
I teach Bel Canto as the foundation.  From this, the singer can then occasionally 
make an artistic choice and use his/her instrument in a non-Bel Canto fashion, 
which meets the realities of today’s world.  But as anyone can tell you, 
before you build a house, you need a strong foundation!
If you are presently taking singing lessons, then my approach will probably be 
different from what you are used to.  In accordance with Bel Canto tradition, 
my lessons are NOT repertoire based.  (That’s the band-aid approach to singing!) 
Rather, you will learn HOW to sing---and once you know how, you will be able 
to sing anything! The majority of the lesson is spent on a routine of vocalizes 
written by Lamperti.  They begin with warm-ups and then proceed in difficulty 
to cover all the vowels and consonants in a variety of combinations.  
These exercises DEVELOP the voice.  After even-ing out the middle we continue 
by extending the range on both sides. Click next to continue......
