Susan Morton

SUSAN MORTON, pianist, linguist, conductor, maintains a busy coaching studio in New York City. She has long been associated with Italian opera, language and culture, and is Director/Founder as well of two programs which foster greater professionalism through performances and language training: SingThrough Central, an ongoing full-score  readings program and Festa Lirica Italiana, spending June on the island of Ischia (Italy) immersed in an intensive role-study and language program.
 
In January of 2017, Classical Singer Magazine featured SINGTHROUGH CENTRAL in an  in-depth article celebrating our 12 years  on the New York City scene and showing how the project addresses and refines the learning and development processes challenging any singer who wishes to learn roles throughout the career.

My goal: Having spent more than 25 years in the field of vocal music, helping singing actors integrate the language of music with the music of language, I am dedicated to guiding you towards mastery of a role, an aria, a character or a language and to take your professional viability to a new level.
 
I offer to you my experience, knowledge, well-rounded and practical outlook, and a great sense of humor!
