Technique is everything! A solid technique can enable you to sing longer and stronger in any style you choose to sing in be it musical theater, contemporary, jazz, hard rock or classical while maintaining healthy vocal cords. It is essential that singers learn to sing from a singer that has tested and proven her technique to the maximum capacity. That is what Lynnette brings to you as a teacher. The technique she teaches is called BEL CANTO and was developed in the country of Italy in order to support the difficult singing that opera demands. Lynnette both teaches and demonstrates the technique for her students then helps them use it in whatever style they choose to sing in.
