Bel Canto Singing School or Class in Italy

Jump to last reply

I realize this may not be strictly a "travel" question but I know there are many resources in Fodors so I am going to try.

Plan to spend ~2 weeks in Italy next Spring, but have a hard time finding a school that offers "tourists" classes in Bel Canto singing.

Yes, there are singing schools in Italy, such as the National Academia of Santa Cecilia in Rome. These are "serious" schools for professional singers, or serious singers and usually accept "young, talented singers who want to develop their skills to be opera singers etc.". Some hold auditions for potential students before accepting them.

I am neither young nor aspiring, nor a professional singer nor want to be an opera singer. I just sing for my own enjoyment but want to learn to sing using the Bel Canto technique.

I did find a school in Lecce but the administrator (a soprano) is so condescending and hard to communicate - she would answer me once after every 2-3 attempts, that I am giving up on that school. Also it is almost like begging to go to her school that I don't find it is worth it.

My ideal location would be Rome, or Florence, or Milan, or Verona/Venice.

Does any fellow Fodorites have any leads? Thanks
