"A wonderful family"







I had the best time at the Accademia and realise that the people have absolutely made it for me. It was such a great group and I felt privileged to be one of them. If this was a 3 month programme that would literally be a singer’s paradise!

The one-to-one coachings with Jonathan Papp were excellent and it was so useful to be able to study the music in such minute detail and put into practise some of the things talked about with the guest teachers.

The Georg Solti Accademia has been one of the most beneficial things I have ever done. If I could do this once a year, I think I’d be the best singer I could be. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn in Castiglione and I will remember it my entire life.
