"The voice is improving, as I have embraced your exercises. I have more breath control and feel as though I'm singing in a sort of a column, where there is no registers or breaks in the voice. The top is getting easier. I am actually happy with the results so far. I can vocalise on the e vowel, which I never could do. You have greatly influenced my thinking. Thank you for the wonderful lessons."

About the School


Bel Canto and General Italian technique is taught to all students attending LNS for all musical styles from opera to popular.  Bel Canto is recognisable by its bright, clear and youthful sound with fullness, richness and apparent ease in singing.  More information can be found on the page ‘Bel Canto Technique’. All pupils find great joy and personal achievement in their singing as well as academic and professional achievement.

All voices can be vulnerable to incorrect vocal techniques including children’s voices, so as well as nurturing the adult voice, great care is taken in nurturing the young voices of children through to teenage.
