“Ms. Falletti is a sensitive and secure musician, with excellent language skills and is comfortable with the complete range of operatic styles that are presented at the Met.   Her practical knowledge of all the components required of a performer will give her a unique perspective in her work with students.  As a voice teacher, she will impart the solid technical approach to singing that has enabled her to sing so well for so many years”.

Donald Palumbo, Chorus Master Metropolitan Opera

“Suzanne is an exceptionally accomplished musician whose career covers a wide range of styles.  She has had great success in the teaching studio.  I have had Suzanne as a guest speaker at both The Eastman School of Music and The Boston Conservatory to teach special sessions on The Business of Opera and share her wisdom and insights about how to have a sustainable career.  She is an inspiring mentor to her students.  I recommend her most highly”.

Johnathon Pape, Director of Opera Studies/Professor of Opera --The Boston Conservatory

“I was so impressed with her extraordinary voice and acting ability that I engaged her as an Artist-in-Residence.  Suzanne possesses a beautiful lyric soprano voice which she uses with great intelligence and musicality.  As a teacher she has all the attributes to be a great resource for her students.  Her thorough knowledge of vocal technique, excellent communication skills, exceptional musicality, command of languages and superb dramatic skills combine to make her a very valuable resource for any student.  Her warmth, kindness, sincerity and delightful sense of humor make her an ideal teacher”.

Dale Dreyfoos, Arizona State University Professor of Opera /Music Theater

“I write to sing the praises of Suzanne Falletti.  While both of us were Artist-in-Residence’s at the Houston Community College, many of my drama students often took voice lessons with her.  I was impressed with their enthusiasm about the work she was doing with them.  Suzanne was equipped to teach very advanced students, but she had extraordinary success with beginning level singers who were frightened, insecure or unconvinced that they could sing.  She is so supportive in her attitude and creative in her approach that her work excels with a wide variety of abilities and temperaments.   Suzanne is a gifted teacher and a delightful performer.  She works well with both faculty and students and I recommend her to you with great enthusiasm”.
