Hello All -

Jorge Pita Carreras is the real thing. I currently have a Bachelor's and Master's of Music in Vocal Performance and not once, in any of my educational training, have I received the true "bel canto" approach that Jorge teaches! It boggles my mind how I could even phonate before. Having sung with the greatest singers and conductors of our generation, Jorge brings a unique wealth of worldwide experience and knowledge. He fully understands the "bel canto" technique and it's application to the main stage. His pursuit of vocal freedom and it's application to the real world is riveting and invigorating. Anyone seeking a true technician with exquisite ears and musical taste must contact Jorge. He's a mentor for life!

Jorge is a wonderful instructor who truly cares about his students. He takes his time to ensure your progress and understanding of the material. His technique and teachings of technique are flawless, hands down. I'm so glad I came to meet and learn from him!

I have observed Jorge in detail as he works with his students teaching the correct Italianate method and how to correctly sing without damaging the voice.
