Italian composer Nicola Vaccai (1790-1848) was known for his operas in his day, but today is remembered as a master voice teacher. Vaccai composed these exercises for training the classical voice, extending range and increasing agility, breath support, and all other technical issues of singing. Vaccai's "Practical Method" has been used by millions of singers since its first publication in Europe in the 19th century and it remains a classic for voice study.
