We were delighted to meet so many vocal students and staff at our recent coaching masterclass at the RNCM in Manchester. With over 30 observers in the room, Matteo Dalle Fratte gave a presentation on the background to the method before working directly with 7 singers and 4 pianists on a wide range of Italian repertoire. Singers’ comments included “I thoroughly enjoyed the masterclass and have learnt a lot of new and interesting techniques and ideas” and “I really enjoyed this and would love to do it again – it’s given me confidence in singing in Italian”.
