— - Nico Castel, Metropolitan Opera Diction Coach
In taking this course, I have learned so much. I have gained the useful tools which now help me to pronounce and execute words. The tools will continue to be an asset in my future. Even if I have never seen the word before, I am confident in my ability to utilize my skills to properly pronounce every word in Spanish. Patricia was so helpful and available to her students. I could easily contact her with any questions. Thanks to Patricia, I have gained so many valuable skills, examples, and exposure to the repertoire. I now feel comfortable to undertake any piece. Since taking this course, I have recommended it to all of my friends, as it is something I will carry with me for the rest of my career!.
