This program was absolutely life changing and is an experience I will always remember.

It helped me to find the passion for my craft again and also find the joy in connecting with others and building friendships that have continued outside of the program.

NUOVA's program is unlike any other intensive I have attended.

The longer days allow you to dive deeper into the work and make the most of your time. The faculty all care deeply about what they are doing and each bring a different but useful teaching style so you are sure to find one you resonate with. The variety of classes allow for you to consider all aspects of your performance aside from just the vocal sound.
