The Vaccai Practical Method of Italian Singing has long been an indispensable introduction to classical singing and singing in Italian. Rather than using scales and exercises, Vaccai uses a series of short songs each highlighting a particular skill and aspect of classical singing.
This compilation of 15 singing lessons date back to the early 19th Century when it was popular to vocalise along with piano accompaniment. These video exercises have been re-created with both English and Italian lyrics and available in keys suitable for High, Middle and Low voice ranges. These singing exercises are still used today in training the singing voice.
