Piccolo player Nicola Mazzanti is celebrated around the world as a foremost performer, teacher, and guest clinician. Mazzanti's lectures and workshops are known for his daily exercises for piccolo players, and The Mazzanti Method brings together his comprehensive collection of studies.

Part I: SOUND is a complete course in itself, providing a wide spectrum of studies, discussions, check points, repertoire melodies in twelve transpositions, tone, intonation, and more.

Part III: MELODIES, OPERA, AND LIEDER provides enriching opportunities to bring these technical lessons to practical application by using the greatest cantabile studies from vocal repertoire.
