The Accademia Europea di Firenze offers the Diction for Singers Course for people who are interested in following a career in singing, it is very important to master the linguistic rendering and pronunciation of the interpretation without hindering the quality of sound. Every time a singer performs in a certain language, the sounds of that language must be carefully worked into their technique. This course enables the student to analyze the sounds of language and how each sound type is ideally produced by the singer to produce the freest, clearest, and most beautiful sound. It will give you all the instruction necessary for you to perform a large variety of songs in other languages, especially in Italian and other neo-latine languages. Diction for singers is central to vocal techniques and integrates with all other aspects of it.
A singing coach specialized in this sector teaches the correct pronunciation and correct emission of the Italian letters, vowels, syllables, etc. Having a thorough technical ability and dominance over your pronunciation and tone is of extreme importance, being a highly appraised quality for classical singers. Upon finishing the Diction for Singers course with passing marks students will receive a diploma recognizing their achievements during the course.
