for „IBA Summer Course“ by „International Belcanto Academy (IBA)

Another positive feedback on our 2018 Summer course! Lessons with Raymond Modesti are invaluable. Every time I work with him, I find more efficient and quicker ways to coordinate my breath to support the sound and stabilize the larynx rather than letting my jaw and tongue control these factors. Whenever I had hesitation or felt any unnecessary tension, he would find ways for me to achieve the same (or usually better) sound without it. I came to the program this year feeling some sort of very subtle but unneeded hold in my abdominal muscles that I wanted to address and his approach allowed me to remap and very consciously modify my breath coordination to avoid that "hold". I find this approach allows a freer sound with less manipulation and it becomes very easy to articulate the vowels in a natural speech-like way. Thank you!!! The opportunity to perform such a wonderful role with reduced orchestra for an audience is incredible. It allows me to safely explore how to technically and dramatically execute a large role and to work through the nerves of performing. The collegial environment that Raymond and Nelly create is unlike other programs and I appreciate the effort they both put in. One on one acting lessons with Nelly Vogler are fantastic— insightful and practical. I really enjoyed working with the conductor, Lex Wiersma . The workshop with a theater agent , for me, was just what I needed at this time in my career and, coupled with your lessons and the performance experience, has jump-started me to start planning auditions and looking for more opportunities in Europe. She gave critical and constructive information and opinions, based on her experiences, and without treating us like students, and I really appreciate that. Amy Harris (USA)

Though I was only with Raymond Modesti for 3 weeks in voice lessons, I understood more about proper technique from Raymond in that time than in my 7+ years studying in college. He made singing feel effortless. It was also one of the first times I felt confident about my singing. For years as an American, I felt behind in my progress. Raymond, Nelly Vogler and Jolanta Nicolai were wonderful in reinforcing that I was perfectly on track developmentally. Their responses were incredibly refreshing to know I'm not behind. Jolanta Nicolai was an incredible highlight of the program. Being that she was a singer, her knowledge of the business and recommendations to my career path was insightful. Her workshop echoed the teachings of theatre masterclasses, but they retained a much more naturalist approach. Nothing seemed forced or over the top. She remained respectful of any participant. I cannot begin to describe the positive experience I had with her at this program. Trey Pittman (North carolina)
