Bel Canto Masters Study Series

During the “golden age” of singing in the 18th and early 19th centuries, virtuoso master singers trained in the “old Italian school” sang with such velocity, smoothness and range that it is difficult to find singers today that can attempt to recreate their amazing artistry. Just as Stradivarius is recognized as the best violin maker, master voice teachers of that bel canto era are recognized as the best “voice-makers.” Unfortunately, much of the teachings of these maestros of voice have been lost over time and corrupted with simplistic, incorrect and even harmful teachings that has severely limited the potential of many a singer. The Bel Canto Masters Study Series was created to restore these techniques and teachings to today’s singers by collecting extant manuscripts of the bel canto technique and reissuing them in inexpensive editions reformatted and meticulously annotated for modern comprehension.
