TEACHING

Singing lessons

Do you want to find your own unique voice?

I will teach you how to better connect with your body, how to use singing techniques so as to avoid damages and strengthen your voice. I will also be focusing on your own personal colours of voice and expression. Learning how to sing well should not mean loosing your own personal sound.

I am a classically trained singer (see resume). After my singing education I have studied acting and am working both as an actress and a singer. I am now exploring different directions with my voice. Trying out several genres to further develop my own diversity as a vocalist.

In my teaching I will use my knowledge of both classical singing and acting. My goal is to figure out who you are and build the confidence you need so you can let your voice free.

What we will work on:

  • Body and vocal warm ups
  • Breathing exercises and understanding the anatomy used for singing
  • Increasing the vocal range and flexibility
  • Working with repertoire and expression

Lessons will take place at my home, or I am happy to travel to you, if there is a piano/keyboard available for use. Due to the current situation with lockdown and restrictions I am now offering online lessons.

  • 3 follow-up lessons: 30 € each
