Operatic Coach/Accompanying Program

Pianists will learn from some of opera's most skilled collaborators at CoOPERAtive.

The profession demands broad knowledge, sharpened skills, and maximum flexibility, and CoOPERAtive has the expert mentoring you need.

"I am very impressed with the comprehensive training CoOPERAtive offers.  No facet of the art or the business of singing is overlooked. For pianists, in-depth study of playing arias convincingly, of synchronizing with a singer, of following a conductor-all these are covered, and in a thoroughly professional but friendly, safe atmosphere."  Martin Katz
