Scuola di canto

«Hello! I am Elvira Tkachenko, a professional singer and vocal teacher. I learned the art of singing as a student of Chiara Angella, whose teacher was Maestro Luciano Pavarotti.

What distinguishes Italian vocal style and technique namely “bel canto” from other schools and traditions is the idea that one should sing as naturally and easily as they speak. Each student's individuality matters to me since I believe that everyone has a unique singing voice that can be developed. My primary aim is to help you find your distinct timbre, learn how to sing in such a way that it melts your audience’s hearts.

Welcome to my singing school of Italian bel canto!!» - Elvira Tkachenko.


Singing lessons at Scuola Di Canto help our students achieve tangible results. The traditional classical approach to teaching Italian bel canto will get you singing impressively provided that you spare no effort in following teachers’ recommendations.

The classes are conducted by professional teaching staff, truly committed, and experienced vocalists who know the subject inside out. We are by no means swollen-headed amateurs like those who offer doubtful teaching methods and promise instant results. Our qualified teachers know that the art of singing is about solfegé, articulation, acting, foreign language learning, history of art, aesthetics, psychology, pedagogy, and so on.

Extra lessons and masterclasses with Russian and Italian teachers, a chance to study in Italy, preparation for singing competitions and auditions, an opportunity to sing beautifully and your song in a recording studio — we can make all these incredible dreams a reality!

Come to study at our school, you are bound to enjoy it! Even if you won’t pursue a singing career, our lessons will broaden your horizons and make you a musically educated connoisseur of vocal arts. Welcome!

Each student at Scuola di canto has a brilliant opportunity to record their performance in a professional music studio in Moscow.

Some people are entirely convinced that they have a terrible singing voice and possess no talent for singing even before they start attending classes. At the same time, I met discouraged students who spent ample time learning to sing but were constantly criticized for their poor singing abilities. “You are absolutely without a doubt horrible at singing!”, “Sorry, you can’t sing, you just weren’t born for this”, “Listening to you is like hearing fingernails on a chalkboard”, “You sound like a dying whale!” — these are only some of the phrases they would hear. The unnecessary cruelty and constant labeling as bad singers are rarely acknowledged by those lousy teachers. Apart from hurting students’ feelings, they also invent various techniques that hardly ever work.
