What Participants have said about the TOP
My German was a shambles before I went to the Tyrolean Opera Program. The classes were great, and reinforced by having to use my German every day. When I came back to school my coaches were astounded at my progress. Thank you!

What Participants have said about the Master Classes
The Master Class on the German Fach System with Marita Knobel and Brigitte Steinert was incredibly helpful. I have a much better idea of how to prepare myself for auditioning in Germany and Austria.

Das einzige Problem mit diesem Konzert war – es war zu kurz!
The only problem with the concert was it was too short!
What Students & Colleagues have said about Elizabeth Bachman
I learned so much about movement, holding my stature, circle of focus and range of motion! I am so pleased with everything I am walking away with. The stagings really have opened my eyes to interpretation and development of character.

Korby has been the most significant force in my singing life. She has an amazing passion for the craft of singing, and an expert’s knowledge of vocal technique. Her artistic and technical mastery is evident in her performing as well as her teaching, and she generously shares all she knows with her students. Her humor, open-mindedness and warmth blend with her expertise to create a truly exceptional voice teacher.

Korby is a great enrichment for the Top Opera program. Her power, her professionalism and her great ability to motivate singers is a perfect gift for every member of the opera program. Korby is not just a really good singing coach and pianist, but also a great personality and a wonderful part of the Achensee opera family.
