"Thank you for this amazing experience: from the individual interest you have taken in each and everyone of us as completely unique and varied singers to the fabulously well-rounded program that explored every aspect of opera."
"Being labeled as a "large voice" limits us. Teachers do not know how to deal with us and choirs hate us. Thank you for giving us a Haven where we are treasured and respected."
"Thank you so much for allowing me to study and observe your teaching. Being the genuine and committed person that you are, you created a supportive atmosphere for your students to progress. This experience will definitely be a turning point in my training as an opera singer."
“Every day a journey up the stairway to success…Thank you for teaching us to walk towards it.” (Ogni giorno una conquista verso la scaletta per il sucesso…Grazie per insegniarci a caminare.)
Antonio Corianò (Italy),
“Every young singer needs assistance at the beginning of his or her career and it is very important to find really professional help. Success depends on our education. The Institute for Young Dramatic Voices is the best program for this. It has everything we need: coaches, voice teachers, acting, movement and, most importantly, a sincere desire to help young singers. Dolora is great singer, a wonderful person, and a true teacher. She has a great professional team at the Institute with which I was very happy to work. Thanks to each of you!"
Mikhail Korobeinikov (Russia)
