Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I was able to learn vocal music in the culture (environment) where the opera was born. Life at homestay was particularly cultural. The landlord prepared a homemade meal every day, and I enjoyed my meal time every day. In vocal lessons, I was grateful to be able to practice at school. In addition, the lessons are rich in vocalization, diction, and colleti lessons, and if you wish, you can learn mainly about what you want to know in detail. I also learned the Italian language needed for the song. The course was divided into several. In the class, I felt that I had to not only wait for the teacher to be nominated, but also to use Italian while being aware of even a few new words. In addition, I learned all about the sound of Italian in a stone-sounding environment unique to Italy, the Italian language often used by Italians, and the Italian gestures.
