DNOA students receive a minimum of two individual coaching sessions a week with a wide range of experienced and accomplished coaches from the international world of opera.  

With the aim of honing your musical, interpretive and linguistic skills, comprehensive and detailed feedback is offered on a range of topics including vocal technique, stylistic awareness and all areas of performance.  

In addition to language coaching, students also participate in regular ensemble classes where the focus is musical, interpretative and dramatic interaction and dialogue in an ensemble context and how to balance technical and musical autonomy with the requirements and requests of conductors, directors or colleagues.
