It's OK Mariana. Nobody has been here for a while. The latest post  before today was in November 2016.

Hi everybody! I haven't been here for a while, but took the day to read discussions, get tips and see amazing videos some people have posted. I would also like to have opinions on a video, if you could give some :) I'm from Brazil, and most times we feel we have few information here and it's hard to find the proper tools to improve our technique, and right now I'm finishing undergraduate studies and thinking about a masters. I would really like to hear (read :P ) opinions from you guys, who are fantastic, and are also from different parts of the world, which can maybe add me something I would not find around here. Here's the link: (it's from a recital I did to conclude my Bacherlor's degree)
Thank you all! :)

Hi! It isn't just the notes that can be a little challenging, it's also the fact that Non piu di fiori is 7 1/2 minutes long. To get through that at 18 would be difficult because you may not have sung something that requires that much stamina. I would look at Kind Sir from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Gondoliers, Batti Batti from Don Giovanni and Saper Vorreste from Un Ballo in Maschera. Those are light pieces that will help to build your soprano range. I started singing those around the same time as you are starting them, so I hope they help. Again, if you want to sing Non piu di fiori, you should find some art songs that have a little girth, so you can build support/stamina and hopefully get you to that goal aria!! Hope that helped!!

i thought i sent a comment, but i can't find it anywhere, so if this is a double, i'm sorry!

thank you Megan for your answer! i noticed that the last bars are much more difficult than the rest of the piece!

i wanted to ask also, do you know pieces which require similar vocal ranges? i'm trying to explore my voice's possibilities to understand where i am more comortable, but it isn't an easy task at all!

Hi Caterina. Non piu di fiori is a dramatic piece. It may start out easy, but ends with a lot of power. I am 25 and just started singing it. I would stay away from it for a while... just until you have other repertoire under your belt.

Hi everyone!
I have a question about an aria I'd love to study. Do you think that "non più di fiori" (la clemenza di Tito) could be suitable to an 18 years old sopranoish girl with an easy middle lower range? Or is it to heavy / unhealthy (chest voice required)?

hi Claudia!

Hi Alisa! Thanks for sharing this recording! I posted a response to the video on your home page.

hi Claudia!
i'd like to get your feedback on this performence. I want to know your opinion about singing and especially about my french, because it's my first french song, and it's importante for me to know my mistakes.
