What is the Melofonetica Method?

The Melofonetica Method® is a research-based method of Italian diction for singers, based on the phonetics of the sung language. It is fast gaining recognition for its clear and practical approach to helping singers achieve better pronunciation, musicality and expression in Italian opera and classical music.

Created by tenor, musicologist and Italian Coach, Dr. Matteo Dalle Fratte, the method is the result of extensive research and work with singers of all levels, from students to professionals, on young artist programmes and at leading UK conservatoires.
