Sarcastic Tuscan humor keeps up an obbligato accompaniment throughout the poem. –RENAISSANCE IN ITALY: ITALIAN LITERATURE|JOHN ADDINGTON SYMONDS



An obbligato section; a prominent countermelody, often written to be played or sung above the principal theme (in a higher pitch range). 


The vocal line is accompanied by an oboe da caccia obbligato.
The chorale is followed by an aria with an obbligato violin.
The alto aria is accompanied by an obbligato violoncello piccolo.
Movement 4 is an aria for soprano with an obbligato solo violin.
Marina Piccinini played the flute obbligatos to excellent effect.
It’s difficult to find obbligato in a sentence.


singing teacher is a professional that helps students to improve the technical usage of their voices.
A voice coach is another professional that helps singers with matters of musical style and performance practice and tradition.
For me, I can’t see the difference when it came to VEE, aka as Mistress de Klinger, her classes are out of this world. The housemates, hopefully are aware in whose presence they sit and recognise who is in their midst.

VEE in preparation for tonight’s musical and dance performance took the housemates through their pronunciation, and musical phrasing also  helping the singer like ERICA  to ‘own’ the song she will sing with NEO. She persisted and she persisted suggesting musical things such as riffs, cadenzas, breath placement in phrases, additional repertoire suggestions, and other interpretive ideas, which led to a high class performance practice act. BRAVO!!!!!!BRAVO

Round of applause to our 23 year old vocal coach, or is she a singing teacher???? VEE lastnight you stole the show my darling.


It Might As Well Be Spring… I used to sing that as a young girl in my voice lessons. Then I picked it up again and it spoke to me in a whole new way. – Bernadette Peters
