Lamperti Axioms

Francesco Lamperti

The art of singing may be reduced to the following axioms: Freedom about the neck and voice above the neck.

If you can sing one (aria), you can sing all, provided that once your voice is placed in purity of tone.

The singer should almost be able to feel as if the breath were coming in instead of going out.

Until you can say the word on the pitch you cannot sing the pitch. 

As the small tone is, so will the large one be. 

Tone is the result of breath and vowels. 

Quality, quality, quality! 

Drink, you goose! 

Olio, olio, olio! 

Do it now!
