Concerning the recitative, Prof. Grist makes mainly indications on agogics and metrical rigor or freedom. Referring to the aria, the professor recommends not pushing a certain note, but letting it just go. On several occasions, she corrects the phrasing regarding the lyrics. She suggests also making almost a sforzando in a certain note.

Afterwards, they work on pronunciation issues and how to place the voice with the vowels to get a good result for the higher notes. Reri Grist highlights again the importance of not pushing. Besides, she makes indications on breathing, notes duration, dynamics, tuning, tempo and trill execution.

Finally, she gives the student some general advices on his attitude to sing and what he should be worried about or not. She also recommends him listening recordings by Fritz Wunderlich (not to imitate him, just to notice his style) and including in his repertoire some Mozart's concert arias.
