Performance Reviews

Benefit Concert for the North End Union

Franco Spoto is a multi-talented artist who has a superb tenor quality. There is no getting away from it, he charmed the audience with his spectacular style and manner.

Die Schöne Müllerin

(Hope College, Holland, MI) – The intimacy of the little auditorium in the Nykerk Hall of Music enhanced the spell the handsome young man cast, not only by his air and presence, but by his consummate handling of a robust voice, which could fill the hall and then spin out a thread with no sign of strain nor falter in tone.

Helen Wright, The Holland Michigan Evening Sentinel


Spoto is a fine leading man with a big, full-dimensioned tenor that carries the lovely Romberg melodies to their full potential.

Martin P. Kelly, The Times Union, Albany, NY


Spoto has returned with a tenor more ingratiating than ever for a brilliant Alfred.

William D. Miranda, The Jewish Advocate


Spoto was equally impressive as Alfredo, giving a totally involved performance both vocally and dramatically. He sang eloquently, revealing a lyric tenor voice of considerable beauty.

Nicholas Groth, Opera Canada


As José, Franco Spoto poured out lovely sounds…vocally, one of the production’s highlights was the Flower Song from Act II, which Spoto sang with ardor.

Student Opinions

My daughter has been working

My daughter has been working with Franco for about a year now and it has been an absolute pleasure! She is 10 and a complete beginner and had never sung in front of anyone before her first lesson with Franco. Franco has been so patient and made her feel comfortable right away. He truly is an expert at his craft – he quickly identifies opportunities for improvement and offers new exercises so she can reach her goals. I feel very fortunate to have my daughter learn from Franco. He really is one of the best teachers around! I highly recommend!

Lesson Review

Franco is simply world class. His approach to teaching emphasizes the use of your mind to manifest the result you desire. He guided me to a deeper understanding of my voice as an instrument and taught me principles that when applied made positive results inevitable. I will be practicing the things I learned from his books and private sessions for the rest of my life. If you are serious about learning your voice, look no further. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Franco has the the most effective methods for advancing artistry and vocalism regardless of singing style that I have experienced in 20+ years of singing, and even more importantly his ability to communicate and adapt his approach is nothing short of remarkable.

Franco Spoto is the person to work with if you are interested in learning technically correct, tension free singing. He is knowledgeable, encouraging, brilliant, kind, warm, enthusiastic, supportive, talented, and knows how to motivate you to strive for perfection. He can help you achieve your goals with song, no matter what they might be. An all around great person who is great at what he does. I highly recommend him!!

Since working with Franco I’ve made faster, more sure progress than ever before in my 20+ years of singing. Franco provides the compete package: he is a master of the structural and functional aspects of vocal production, an accomplished performer and interpreter, and, in writing and lessons, a master observer and communicator.

Current Student

The way that Franco teaches has provided me with useful solutions – a consistency in the concept of the vocal mechanism through clear images of both structure and function separately, and a set of tools that is constantly growing, which enables me to sing at my full potential whatever the style of music or physical challenge of the day or week.
