• MOVE & BREATHE! Explore the connection between body and voice through invigorating and creative 
  movement work

This unique project is led by a renowned international faculty from the vocal, theater and movement arts.

For complete program details:

You are invited to honor your deepest dreams. Adult singers of all levels are welcome, from professional to beginner. Prerequisites are a passion for music and singing.

Singing this summer is not simply the art of making beautiful sounds on key, but an expression of our deepest life forces, and a vehicle for discovery of our personal power through the artistry of the human voice.


The Tuscany Project (named for the region were the workshops started) is held in the beautiful 12th century restored villa, Locanda del Gallo, in the green heartland of Umbria. As you explore your voice and singing, you will also have the chance to take walks in the rolling hills, swim in the breathtaking "infinity pool" perched over the beautiful neighboring valley, breathe in the ever-present scent of lavender and rosemary, and revive yourself with abundant, freshly prepared organic foods, served al fresco!

THIS SUMMER affirm your commitment to your own voice in this unique environment. Surround yourself with an international community of singers in an environment that fosters your singing and learning.

The project is geared specifically towards those who feel deeply committed to their voice, and offers the highest quality instruction, a high ratio of teacher to students, and considerable individual attention.

TUITION for 2009 is 1,350 Euro and includes instruction, accommodations and three full meals per day.

NOTE: Enrollment period is limited,and it is advised that you contact the project by May 10.
