Singing is beneficial for both body and soul. Not only is it fun, but it has been shown that singing, like any creative endeavor, increases neuroplasticity in the brain.


As we explore the text of a song, we learn something about ourselves and others, giving us the gifts of empathy and openness.


Studies have shown that singing, especially with others, improves our mood and lowers stress and anxiety.


We know that everyone can benefit from singing, but why take lessons? No matter your musical background or experience, all can learn to improve their singing, learn about different musical genres and styles, and feel more confident and gain presence in all aspects of life.



You could argue that the voice is man’s first musical instrument! If you can speak, you can sing. Vocalizing / singing has been a part of every culture for hundreds of years, with styles that often reflect the individual language and dialect of the culture from which it springs. Sung text seems to elevate both the singer and the audience in a way that is completely unique.

Singing has been used to tell stories, to worship, to woo, and, we believe, to heal the soul. Singing with a group can reduce loneliness by bringing together like-minded people engaged in the same activity. It can reduce stress and anxiety, boost confidence, and possibly even strengthen the immune system and cardiovascular health.

Bel Canto Academy offers both private and group lessons for children and private lessons for adults.


Comprehensive and Tailored

Every voice is unique, and our voice faculty will create a singing/voice lesson program based on your vocal range, experience, and musical interests. Private voice lessons are available to students above age 8, with a variety of musical genres explored based on the student’s interest.
