Ms. Rebecca has taught one of my twin daughters since she was in kindergarten and now she is a freshman in high school, and the other daughter since about 5th grade. Both have learned the fundamentals of how to sing, the right techniques, the right approaches to new music, how to preserve their voice when doing certain types of songs (not to strain their voices and cause damage), etc. Ms. Rebecca has been an invaluable guide to the world of musical theater and classical songs (including opera). And she has helped my daughters prepare for various competitions that they have both done well in, reflecting the excellent foundation and skills Ms. Rebecca has fostered.

Opera Singing Lessons Near You

Part of the classical western music tradition, opera began in Italy in the late 16th century with "Dafne" by Jacopo Peri. It spread quickly as a popular art form throughout Europe. Today, operas by composers like Bellini, Rossini, Monteverdi, Puccini, Mozart, Wagner, and Strauss are still regularly performed.

Before radio and recording technologies emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, opera fans were limited to areas populous enough to accommodate the large theatrical productions. Following the advent of records, opera music spread like wildfire. As a result, popular opera singers like Enrico Caruso and Maria Callas emerged.

Like musical theater, opera features a stage and set, acting, and sometimes dance. So those who learn to sing opera must master the prop

...

er vocal techniques, in addition to practicing theatrical performance.

Stylistically, opera differs from musical theater in that song and music typically drive the story. But it’s important to realize that not all opera singers perform in full theatrical productions. Many opera performers give concerts where they’ll sing selections of music from operas and the classical genre.

Why Learn to Sing Opera?

This beautiful, powerful form of music impacts audiences on a deep level, regardless of language barriers. Singing opera also triggers the body to release endorphins - hormones that make us feel happy and less stressed.

Opera is quite literally music for the heart, as it has been scientifically proven to impart a variety of heart-healthy effects. These include lowering blood pressure and decreasing the heart rate. It has also been shown to be an effective aid in the rehabilitation of patients who have suffered from a stroke. You'll enjoy all these benefits and more when you sign up for opera singing lessons near you.

What You'll Learn in Opera Lessons Near You

The best way to learn to sing opera is with a private teacher. You'll receive immediate feedback and gain confidence, as you become more comfortable with your vocal abilities. In private lessons, your tutor will focus on your unique vocal range, helping you realize your true potential. 

You'll quickly overcome challenges and stay motivated with his or her one-on-one guidance. Plus, you'll learn new concepts and skills at a pace that's comfortable for you, while singing the music that interests you most. Here are some specifics of what you’ll learn at each level. 

Sample Curriculum from Opera for Beginners

When you learn how to sing opera for beginners, your lessons will focus primarily on the basic principles of singing properly, before you receive instruction on creating an operatic quality of voice. In opera for beginners, your teacher might choose to cover some of the following topics:

  • Proper singing posture
  • Breathing techniques and exercises
  • Learn to warm-up and care for your vocal cords
  • Learn to use different singing registers
  • Introduction to music theory

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Operatic Singing Lessons

If you've already had some general voice training, then intermediate lessons are likely the best fit for you. In intermediate opera lessons near you, you'll build upon your basic skills and learn techniques used in the operatic singing style. Your instructor might choose to cover some of the following topics:

  • Learn open and closed vocal cord techniques
  • Practice terraced dynamics
  • Increase control of voice and tone
  • International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA)
  • Learn to read musical notation

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Operatic Singing Lessons

Advanced training is intended for students who have moved past the basics of how to learn opera, and are already familiar with singing it. Lessons at this level provide students the opportunity to overcome their personal challenges and get one step closer to becoming a professional. Your tutor might choose to cover some of the following topics:

  • Improve sight-reading skills
  • Extend your range 
  • Learn to control vibrato
  • Practice emotional expression
  • Audition coaching/performance preparation

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
