“This place is paradise ... and the teachers are masters. It could not have been better!”
David Feehan, master voice teacher and professional recording artist, New Zealand
WE INVITE YOU to join us this summer for an eight-day exploration of the power of the human voice. Deepen the strength of your own voice through song, vocal exploration and movement. Soak in the life-affirming energy of a group of people who share a common passion: to make music and singing a part of their life (in whatever way, shape or form.) For our 21st year, we are gathering in the lush green hills of Umbria for this intimate and intensive learning experience. Participants come from all walks of life and all corners of the globe. Sing, discover new friendships, and experience Italy and La Dolce Vita.
Blending group and individual work, the project focuses on each person's individual growing edge and personal connection with voice and song.  Explore the color, breadth and depth of the human voice -- your voice. Express your unique sound through the performance of a song.  Craft an authentic connection and make a song "your own."  Encounter your fears and face them with new skills.  Move & Breathe! Explore the deep connection between your body and voice through invigorating and creative movement work. Discover the joy and power of singing in community.  A renowned international vocal, theater and movement arts faculty leads this unique project.
We invite you to dare. We invite you to honor your deepest dreams. Adult singers of all levels are welcome, from professional to beginner. Prerequisites are a passion for music and singing and the courage to take risks.
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 a beautifully restored 12th century villa, Locanda Del Gallo in the green heartland of Umbria. As you explore the music within you, 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. In light of the international financial situation we are doing everything possible to keep costs down. As the project is geared specifically towards those who feel deeply committed to their voice, we continue to offer the highest quality instruction, a high ratio of teacher to students, and considerable individual attention.  Cost for 2013 will be 1,800 Euro (if we receive your deposit before March 1st 2011), 1,900 Euro thereafter. Tuition includes instruction, accommodations and three full meals per day. Travel costs are not included. We hope you can join us! For more details:
