About the course

The Wales International Academy of Voice (WIAV) is established to address a perceived change in vocal and musical standards in current-day performance, particularly in opera. WIAV concentrates heavily on issues of vocal technique and style in operatic repertoire from the baroque onwards, as well as in art song repertoire.

Course Overview

The course is based on individual, bespoke tuition provided by a team of distinguished coaches, including Dennis O’Neill, the Academy Director, Nuccia Focile, Jane Samuel, and a number of visiting consultants, such as Dame Kiri te Kanawa (WIAV’s honorary president), Ryland Davies, Anne Murray, Richard Bonynge, Joseph Rouleau, and so on. There are also master classes, group teaching classes and participation in public events and professional placement.

Key Features

The programme provides the highest possible level of tuition for singers, either already in the profession or about to enter it. WIAV targets those students who have normally completed a postgraduate course (or equivalent) at a conservatoire. The programme is inherently vocational, essentially practical and designed to enhance already established abilities.
