Libero Canto and Satoshi Hasegawa

Satoshi Hasegawa has studied under both professors in Vienna since 1973. After studying abroad, I have been receiving singing and teaching methods in Vienna every year for many years, and I am trying to spread this method as one of the few successors certified by both professors.

And we have produced many excellent vocalists and music teachers such as the winners of the Verdy International Competition.

・ About breathing

In Libero Canto

First, remove the bad habits of each person when singing.

And I will sing with the energy of breath that is naturally comfortable, without doing anything such as holding, supporting, holding, enthusiastic, aiming for sound or voice, which is common in classical vocal music.

By training the light and bright throat mechanism and freeing the body to work, rather than force, the song will be understood correctly and the singer's body will emerge.
