My mother has lessons by her classical opera teacher who is a very good soprano. My mom practices how to sing every day. When I was a junior high school student, she always sang Italian songs.
Italian songs are composed of many Italian arias. These songs are very beautiful and impressive, I think. The melody and the words are so fantastic. These songs are used for practicing how to sing classical music, but I think the above are only lessons. These are a kind of art.
I always accompany her on the piano, so I learn these melodies and words naturally. My most favorite Italian song is “O cessate di piagarmi.” This song has a very beautiful melody and words. I was really touched when I listened to it for the first time.
Italy is a very wonderful music country, I think. There are many operas, arias, and songs. I want to go to Italy and sing an Italian song there!
