Lessons

Please contact us if you would like to schedule a lesson.  An initial introductory lesson is always free of charge.  We also offer periodic introductory workshops or demonstration classes. Lessons are usually an hour once or twice a week. Prices vary from teacher to teacher.  Students are encouraged to participate in an annual end of year concert.

In general, a student of Libero Canto will experience exercises that are relaxing, loosening, enlivening, or playful.  If images are used, they will tend to be non-directive, leaving room for the student's subjective experience and for serendipitous events. Teachers generally give little direct verbal instruction, but ask frequent questions about how the student perceives or understands what is happening in the lesson. We encourage an attitude of curiosity. We create an environment of acceptance of the student as he is in each moment, and of all that is authentic and spontaneous. We consider music itself to be the most vital guide in singing, and therefore we often work with students on deepening the ability to hear or imagine music in the mind. We consider that voice, however beautiful, is not an end in itself, but only the vehicle for genuine expression within the forms of music.
