Barbara Bonney / Visiting Professor at the Royal Academy of Music & Former Professor at the Mozarteum College of Music / Vocal Music Online Special Private Lesson Series

Get a handwritten letter of recommendation from the world's most popular singer, Barbara Bonney!

World-famous soprano singer Barbara Bonney offers vocal lessons that will dramatically change your voice. We are holding a special private lesson series as we receive many comments such as ``I understood the problem'', ``I was taught a world-standard vocal method'', and ``I can now speak my voice more easily''.

Starting in 2024, Barbara Bonney, a world-renowned soprano singer, visiting professor at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music in England, and former professor at the Mozarteum University of Music in Austria, will be holding a special online "private" vocal lesson series. This course has a total of 1 lessons. This is a private lesson, so it is a special lesson that fits the schedule of the teacher and the customer. One of the attractions is that it is not held on a specific day like public lessons. If it is within one year of your application, the start and end dates are entirely up to you. You can concentrate and complete all the lessons in one week like a seminar, or you can practice and repeat the lessons over a year. Dr. Barbara Bonney's busy schedule is tailored just for each client. In order to connect Salzburg, Austria, where Ms. Bonnie lives, with Japan, lessons will be held at And Vision International Music School (AIMS) or at her home. We recommend taking lessons at AIMS because of its stable high-speed internet connection and professional audio and video equipment, but you can also take lessons from far away or from overseas outside of Japan. The bonus of the lesson series is that you will receive a recorded video of each lesson, and best of all, after every lesson, you will receive a letter of recommendation signed by Dr. Barbara Bonney. For example, letters of recommendation are often required for studying abroad, international competitions, and opera theater auditions. Therefore, a letter of recommendation from a world-famous singer will definitely come in handy (and of course you can display it on your forehead!) To take this special private lesson series, you will need to pass a video audition on YouTube, etc. You can apply anytime. The teacher can start the lesson from the moment the idea comes to mind. Would you like to inherit the essence of that song that you have heard by world-famous soprano singer Barbara Bonney?

[Barbara Bonnie]
American-born international soprano singer Barbara Bonney studied piano and cello from an early age, and studied German and music at the University of Salzburg, Austria. She switched from cello to vocal music and studied vocal music at the Mozarteum Academy of Music. Her singing talent was amazing and in 1979 she made her debut as Anna in The Merry Wives of Windsor at the Staatsoper Darmstadt, and she performed at the London Royal Opera House, Milan. He performed successively at major theaters in Europe, including La Scala. In 1987, she starred in the role of Naiade in Richard Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos at the New York Metropolitan Opera (MET) and Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier at the Vienna State Opera, bringing her into the world spotlight. I was immersed in it wholeheartedly. Many of you are aware of her later appearances as a singer, but her performance was so intense that her eyes were clear, and she greatly captivated audiences at major opera houses around the world. And you may be one of those people who was attracted to that singing voice. Barbara Bonney is an operatic lyric soprano who has made over 100 recordings for major labels such as Decca, DGG, and EMI, but since 1999 she has been perfecting her music with a focus on her own songs. Boasting a wide range of repertoire from the Baroque to the 20th century, she is internationally acclaimed as one of the highest-ranking lyric sopranos of today.She is a former professor at the Mozarteum College of Music in Austria, her alma mater, and a visiting professor at the Royal Academy of Music. He also puts effort into training younger students in his many master classes. As a world-renowned vocal coach, her lessons, in which her students' singing voices magically change, were even broadcast on NHK Super Opera Lessons.
