Singing: The Power of Belcanto
It is well established that singing contributes to general well-being, health, and intelligence. Join us for this singing class to experience these benefits for yourself!
This course is taught by Marie-Luise Reinhard, an experienced educator, linguist, and professional opera singer, and empowers students to enjoy singing any piece of music they choose. Ms. Reinhard introduces students to the art of singing using a basic and clear technique that she was taught by the famous tenor Alessandro Luciano - the art of Western European Bel Canto (MasterVoiceMethod).
Classes begin with technical exercises to bring the body, breath, and vocal cords into alignment, followed by practice with a mixture of songs – some selected by Ms. Reinhard and some chosen by the students in the class.
Join us and experience the relaxation and strength that singing can provide!
