When you hear great singers such as Whitney Houston, Maria Carey, Freddy Mercury, Ariana Grande, Luciano Pavarotti and others you wonder, "how do they do that?" Some great singers intuitively apply the concepts of Bel Canto to reach vocal greatness and some were taught the technique. This technique offers unsurpassed benefits compared to other vocal techniques. These benefits include: increased vocal range, pitch accuracy, beautiful vocal tone, a natural vibrato, unique sound, strong agile voice, rich voice texture, ability to build your own voice, ability to sing high notes with power and ease, ability to sing long hours without fatigue and many more. Modern day Bel Canto, which means "Beautiful Singing," is applied to all styles of music: Rock, Pop, Alternative, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Blues, Soul, Broadway, Country, Hip Hop, Classical and more.
