Master Class

On March 29th I'm having a Master Class from 7pm-10pm at Chelsea studios on 151 w.26th st.
This class is always exciting & informative. The participants demonstrate the ability to use the
same technical approach in singing classically & in Jazz or other genre.
We have two accomplished pianists; One from NYC Opera & a new young Jazz pianist from Japan.
My desire is to make maintenance & longevity an integral part of these young peoples thinking,
concerning their vocal gifts.
I think it was Tony Bennett who attributes his long vocal career to the Art of Bel Canto & it is
Magda Olivero who debuted at the Met at age 65, still sings at 99 & can be seen on YouTube
singing Panis Angelicus at 81or 87. In the words of Leontyne Price

"It can be Done"
