This project report discusses how young tenors can use vocal exercises by Giuseppe Concone (1801-1861) as a means to develop technique and a sense of the bel canto style for the songs and arias of Bellini and Donizetti. This approach compares similar musical passages between the exercises and songs and includes specific exercises needed to address various technical aspects of the songs and arias. Apart from the Concone exercises, there is an attempt to extract some of the musical passages from the songs and arias to use themselves as vocal exercises. The selected songs of Bellini considered here are "Ma rendi pur contento," and "Malinconia, Ninfa gentile," and the aria is "É serbata a questo acciaro" from I Capuleti e i Montecchi. Those of Donizetti under consideration are "Amore e morte" and "Il Barcaiolo," and the aria is "Una furtiva lagrima," from L'elisir d'amore.
