Holder of a Diploma in Teaching Singing (Master of Pedagogy) as well as a First Prize in Virtuosity (Master of Soloist) from the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne, I also have a Diploma of Technician in the Operating Room from the Ecole Supérieure de la Santé de Lausanne which allowed me to acquire great knowledge in human anatomy. After discovering the magnificent work of Robin de Haas, I chose to train in MDH respiratory coordination in order to further refine my knowledge of the human instrument that is the voice. I am happy today to bring together all these skills in order to best support my students on the extraordinary path that is that of the voice. The lessons begin with work on breathing and posture, they continue with vocalizations across the entire range in order to equalize the registers and allow the amplification of the voice, then end with work on the scores and their interpretation. This list is not exhaustive and the course of the lesson depends of course on the level and the request of the student. The lessons are intended for anyone motivated by working on their voice, from novice singers to professionals looking for interpretation advice, including amateur choristers and singers with vocal difficulties. I look forward to welcoming you to Epalinges and traveling a long way with you!

Spanish and English. Different ages and levels, by Arkhesia
Hi there! This is Arkhesia from Madrid, Spain. I'm an experienced and qualified teacher who teaches Spanish and English at all levels. I'm also certified to prepare Cambridge exams (Linguaskill). I have been working as a high school teacher in my country, as a governess, home-school headteacher, teacher in offices and academies. Now, I just moved to Switzerland and I'm trying to settle over here, so I'm sure if you need classes this can help both of us :) I work with language acquisition upper 3 years with sensorial stimulation and the Montessori approach, academic support for all subjects until 10 years, and exam preparation courses. I like to work with various activities to find the methods that correspond to my students and their processes of learning in different fields to develop different skills (communication, comprehension, and writing) and have fun (I really believe attitude and predisposition determine learning :P). I organize my courses so that my students can have solid and structured knowledge with a positive, extrovert, and dynamic approach, I guess more under a Hispanic perspective rather than the British one xD. Interested in cultural aspects?! Well as you already know I'm from Madrid, but I have also been living in Panama, England, and Ireland among other places so we can share different perspectives too. Willing to know about my studies? ask for my CV if so cause that's a bit wide hahaha but trying to put it in a nutshell I studied English Studies Degree (UAH, Spain), Master in teacher training E.S.O, Bach., FP, and languages. Specialization: English. (UFV, Spain), Module in Educational Leadership: agency, professional learning and change. (OU, U.K) and Master in Conscious Education. (Kuestiona, Spain). Can't afford the prices? Let me know. I'm into SociocracyForAll, and I agree and consider a world in which people engage together to meet their individual and collective needs in an equitable way, with respect for all living beings as a standard.
