Nico continues to be on the faculty of The Juilliard School of Music in New York and is in his 35th year at the Metropolitan Opera Company.

Remarkably, there is still time in the schedule for Nico's Private Coaching which he does either one-on-one in New York, by phone or by cassette tape through the mail. Interested students and professionals should contact him at nccastel@aol.com.

Nico's private classes are being offered through the newly established New York Opera Studio, now in its second year. These classes are: The I.P.A. De-mystified, Spanish Lyric Diction and Vocal Repertoire and Opera Role Study.

The ever popular Making It Professional master class with both Nico and Carol Castel is also being offered through the NYOS.

Carol Castel has finally brought her workshop: Acting, Artistry and the Creative Process for Singers to New York through the NYOS. This class was originally offered by the Opera NUOVA program in Edmonton Canada by Ms. Castel in 1999 and has been developed over the past 6 years into the only class of its kind. Singers explore not only acting and performance craft but learn how to identify and develop the artist within and how to make artistic choices in their singing.

Ms. Castel continues her Voice Studio and Private Coaching both in New York and San Francisco. In addition to Opera Directing she is also the founder and General Manager of the newly established New York Opera Studio.
