Matthew Mark Marriott

Matthew is fast becoming one of the leading Voice teachers in Norway and Scandinavia. He has worked as a voice teacher at the Opera Academy at the National Academy of the Arts in Oslo. He has also been a voice consultant to Nordic Institute for stage and studio in Oslo. In 2014 Matthew was given the position as a singing teacher at Toneheim Folkhogskole.

Along side this Matthew runs his own regular private singing studio for both student and professional singers.

In 2015 Matthew worked as a voice consultant to Ringsaker Opera, Norway and also as visiting professor to Hedmark University.

Matthew has given master classes throughout Norway including Stavanger University and for the Oslo Opera festival.

He has also given voice masterclasses for the Renata Tebaldi Foundation in San Marino and the Fillarmonica Romana in Rome.

Matthews students perform regularly on the International Opera stage and leading concert venues and also on the Musical theatre stage around the world. He has also had students successfully embark on the young artist programme at the National Norwegian Opera. He also has pupils who perform on national Television and radio.

He regularly prepares young singers for entrance auditions both in Norway and beyond and each year his students successfully fill many of the places of the accepted applicants auditioning to the foremost Conservatoires and Universities.

Matthew coaches and teaches many singers in Norway and also has students from around the world visit him in Norway for lessons . He is in demand by both students and professional singers. He is known as a teacher who shows great commitment to every student he works with and for his knowledge, patience, enthusiasm, positiveness and well trained ear

He maintains that teaching is essentially a relationship between pupil and teacher with respect and commitment on both sides. Whilst working on the voice, body and mind he considers the philosophical needs of the singer, and believes singing to be the voice of the soul. His fundaments, training and concepts are based on Bel canto principles of beauty of quality of tone, legato and freedom of voice, body mind and spirit!

Exercises are used on various sounds possible for the human voice. All vowels and consonants too are used in different placements throughout all registers, thereby achieving balance and evenness throughout the singers range, as well as flexibility at all dynamic levels.

Alongside this thoughts and use of the natural tendency and developments of the diaphragm as an emotive power is adhered to, and all excercises lead to the optimum individualness and quality of each and every singer. No voice is the same and should be trained accordingly.

Matthew works with many musical possibilities and variations so that when the student/singer performs there is nothing that has not been technically explored. The singer is then confidently able to use their imagination and inherent musicality to sing expressively with beauty and freedom.

Furthermore he has a complete understanding of vocal anatomy which is also a vital key to teaching.

Alongside this he is also a very competent pianist and regularly provides this aspect into his voice lessons.

He is experienced with both training the voice in Classical, Opera, Popular music and Music Theatre. However he specializes primarily in classical and Opera singing.

In 2013, with the aim of boosting agricultural activity and recover the buildings they were going down the drain, it was developed the project of the educational farm.

Historical information

Narni – Geographic centre of Italy, situated in the province of Terni, in the region of Umbria.

It’s a typical Umbrian town, built on a hill 790 feet above sea level with 20.570 inhabitants and strong medieval traces. The town has outstanding views over the river Nera valley and the wide plane of Terni. Narni offers artistic, archaeological and religious itineraries, plus an abundance of natural history for the tourist. The town’s theater dates back to 1800.

It is surrounded by cultural gems, including the renowned cities of Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Spoleto.

Narni is situated 62 miles from Rome and 46 miles from Perugia.

Although Neolithic people lived in this region, the first historical document mentioning the town is dated 600 B.C.
Narni was a Roman colony under the name of Narnia, a name that comes from the Nar River, which today is called the Nera.

  • In 233 B.C., with the construction of the via Flaminia from Rome to Rimini on the Adriatic coast, Narni became of major importance and it was heavily fortified because the road passed through the town.
  • In 90 B.C., Narnia became a municipally (semi independent) town within the Roman Empire.
    The first Christian Bishop of Narni, Giovenale from Cartage, was chosen in 368 A.D. and later was consecrated as Patron Saint of the town.
    Narni’s strategic position, standing as it does above the deep gorge of the river Nera, has made it a target of many invading and barbarian forces.
  • In the 11th Century it established its power as a free “Comune” (autonomous town).
  • Between the 12th and the 14th century it reached its greatest splendor.
  • In 1371, the Pope Reformed the Statutes of the city and Narni became part of the Papal State.
    Narni developed a school of painting and goldsmithing. Many artists of the renaissance period produced work for clients and patrons in Narni: Rosellino, Ghirlandaio, Gozzoli, Vecchietta, Antoniazzo, Romano and Spagna.
  • On the 17th of July 1527 the Lanzichenecchi (northern mercenaries) stopped on their way back from the sacking of Rome and destroyed Narni.
  • Slowly the walls, buildings and churches were rebuilt and by the end of the century, Narni had been re-established.
    After the rebuilding, many important artists returned to Narni, including Vignola and Zuccari. Also Sangallo and Scalza, who took part in the reconstruction of the town.
  • In 1664 the town library was founded. Many famous people were born in Narni, including: the emperor M.C. Nerva, Gattamelata, the Beata Lucia, Bernardo Eroli, Galeotto Marzio and S. Cassio.
