Trusted teacher: Hello, it's Rita, your voice teacher! No matter which level you might be, you will learn the theory about body and voice anatomy, ear training, diction, body language, performance, audition/competition preparation, as well as understanding sound production. Defining bad habits, removing vocal weaknesses are both mandatory to anyone willing to work on its voice development, perfect resonance, and technique progress. Remember that singing is natural, and the sound produced by the vocal cords is carried on the breath. This is the technique of ‘bel canto’ which means beautiful singing. Each lesson is divided into 3 main parts: • Breathing exercises, correct posture reminder, and stretching mobility • Warm-up exercises to stretch the vocal muscles: starting with a single-note, interval, and scale using pure vowels, words, and song phrases. Humming, straw, lip rolls, vocal sirens, Plenty of exercises tailored based on your level, ensuring never to make you feel bored of this essential routine • 3rd part is usually the fun part where you apply all the basics into a song study and interpretation. We agree on the choice of your repertoire, pitch, and rhythm, try to sing-along with the original song, Acappella, acoustic, and karaoke. On monthly basis, I offer group masterclasses and publish on my blog topics related to the life of a singer and musician, in the categories of art, wellness, nutrition, psychology, therapy, along with interviews. With more than 11 years of experience in music academies and online, I teach students teenagers and adults up to 65 years old, music genres such as pop, pop-opera or crossover, soul, R&B, rock, musical theater, and of course classical as it is my specialty where I attended masterclasses, workshops and opera studios around the globe. I look forward to singing with you!

Trusted teacher: If you are looking to get started with Computer Aided Production, you have come to the right place! A musician who has always been passionate about electronic music and also a guitar teacher, I have a pedagogue spirit and I like being able to pass on my knowledge. I like to provide a relaxed atmosphere and I can adapt to a lot of different kinds of electronic music. This course is aimed at musicians and those interested in learning to compose music entirely by computer, from scratch.

Beginner to advanced level, the training includes: -Ableton Live software basics (Workflows, configuration, interface & shortcuts) -Basics of musical production (Write a melody and a chord progression, structure a song according to the style chosen) -MIDI basics (Use of VSTs, insertion and configuration of external instruments) - Sound Design basics (ADSR basics, use of layering for virtual instruments, sample processing) -Using audio effects (Review of available effects and how to integrate and use them effectively) -Learn to mix a song and / or a complete project and prepare the mastering of the latter (Gain staging, spatialization, frequency sweep and use of compressors, mixing templates and use of a reference track) -Publication of projects (basic mastering, study on the different broadcasting and music streaming services) The goal is to acquire the right basic knowledge in a short time, in order to be able to be autonomous on the creation, the publication and the management of your own projects. I teach the lessons, either: -At my home directly, I have a small studio in my apartment, not far from downtown Montreal; -At your home, the costs are a little higher due to transport; -Remote by webcam with sound and screen sharing I give a first lesson of one hour at the start of the process so that I can take the time to discuss your project and determine the objectives together.

Trusted teacher: Former student at the Conservatory of Versailles in France in the class of Saskia Lethiec, I had the opportunity to be part of many student and amateur orchestras in Violin I: - Orchestra of the Sorbonne in Paris - Orchestra of the Universities of Paris - Orchestra of the University of Copenhagen in Denmark - Sinfonia Ensemble of Montreal Passionate about orchestra and the teaching of my instrument, all along my musical journey I had the opportunity to transmit my knowledge in violin and music theory especially to the youngest (10-15 years old). My method: As for young students, for me learning the violin must be a discovery in every class. The child must be amazed by the beauty of the music each time he vibrates his instrument. This curiosity must be enriched day by day during his daily work and I want my classes to allow them to learn the instrument in the joy of discovering their own sensations! As for adults, I want to provide them with the means to progress independently from day to day, always becoming aware of their body. It is important for me that the adult can develop his inner listening to help him progress on the quality of his accuracy and phrasing.

Deborah - Amstelveen, NetherlandsC$42
Trusted teacher: Singing gives relaxation; the exercises used in singing technique such as low breathing and relaxation exercises are also pleasant and useful when you are pregnant. Furthermore, research has shown that the unborn child already responds to music. For example, music that is often repeated during pregnancy provokes a calming response when the baby is born. Also the voice of the mother is recognized immediately after birth. Deborah would therefore like to start with a singing group for pregnant women. Besides the exercises, we sing canons, polyphonic music and lullabies in different languages and styles.

And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!

Zara - Kowloon, Hong KongC$112
Trusted teacher: Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a professional opera singer working mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions (97/100 for voice and 90/100 for piano). Besides, I am a holder of DipABRSM piano performance certificate and ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have been giving private singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 3 to 50 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques. Alongside with that, I spend a little time on every lesson for ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest of the student. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and presentation. I aim to provide all-round knowledge to my students so they will be well equipped for future development. For piano students who are at the beginning of their music journey, I use a lot of creative ways to teach basic knowledge such as rhythm and fingering. These creative ways include colorful presentation slides, arranging a tailor-made version of the songs they like and introducing fun games to keep them motivated. Each student will get something different because everyone is different. As an instructor of vocal masterclasses for choir students in Hong Kong, I see myself as the person who: -- opens the door of fundamental vocal techniques for the students; -- influences them to be confident; -- shows them the beauty of human voice and vocal music; -- teaches them to embrace the others without judgement. My way and attitude of teaching was proved to be successful with a lot of positive feedback. I tend to plan my classes in detail, and give notes to students every lesson. In this case, the students can follow the lessons easily and make the best out of their time. I do not make my students always say "yes" and "okay", I like to work with them and they are always welcome to tell me their needs. Since I grew up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong (Belilios Public School) and I have a lot of English-speaking students, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.
