Vocal and Musical Skills

While the successful candidate for DNOA will have already achieved a high level of vocal accomplishment, linked to a stable technique, much attention will continue to be given to the vocal development. This takes the form of individual singing lessons with either a teacher from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague or the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. In consultation with the artistic team, students may also select an external teacher of their own choosing.

One to one coachings with our pianists are also offered on a regular basis to all DNOA students. Ensemble lessons are built into the course, as well as masterclasses with world famous singers and conductors. DNOA students also get opportunities to work with professional orchestras.
