I will give my students/pupils, a realistic view of the operatic world and operatic career, though my own experience in the business, for over more than 30 years, based in a strong Bel Canto Technique.

Since his auspicious debut, the distinguished basso's career in concert and opera performances has take him around the globe, especially in Europe, USA, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.

Talvez a maior dificuldade que exista para um aluno é ter uma referência real de sua voz. Referência que engloba aspectos técnicos vocais; musicais; cênicos como também aspectos de posturas, compromisso com a carreira e com cada trabalho proposto. Hombridade. Tive a oportunidade de assim de conhecer uma das minhas melhoras referências: Luiz-Ottavio Faria. Em todas as aulas que tive pude receber um conteúdo técnico refinado, embasado e experiente pois não se tratava somente da postura vocal, da técnica ali trabalhada ou de notas certas e sim um contexto completo do que você está cantando como também interpretando. Toda aula com ele é aula para ser um artista em todos os sentidos. Grato professor e amigo. Bravíssimo por sua carreira e por sua conduta de sempre.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Faria in Brazilian Theaters where we song a few Óperas toghether. Now I´m living in NY and I am having the opportunity to improve my technique with this excelente teacher who gets with all his profissional experience and a lot of sensitivity, explain and identify the erros of the voice and posture of the body. I can say that Mr Faria is on of the best Bass currently, as well as one of the best teacher I met. Congratulation and a lot of successs in you profession.

Mr Faria,
is a complete opera singer, with a great background and stage experience. Is awesome the way he conducts the lesson, explaining all we need, how many times we need. When he gives an example, we can feel this solid technique, and art of singing.
Thank you Maestro

I first met Luiz Ottavio Faria as a performer and I was mesmerized.
That was the reason that I approached him and ask if he is teaching.
From the minute I start studying with him my voice has change immensely.
He is teaching the old Italian approach of singing and he is doing It with a modern innovative way that is both understood and enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend him for anyone that truly wants to learn to be in command of their voice.
