Singing/Voice Lessons & Beginner Music Theory Lessons

I teach private singing lessons to children, teenagers, and adults in English (for now) and beginner music theory for all ages. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, I am teaching online only. There is no extra cost to the student and you don't have to leave the comfort of your home to have a fun time!
I have 20 years experience as a performer and 10 years of teaching experience and have a passion for sharing music with others through music education. I believe that singing is a joyful expression of each unique voice and person.
My teaching philosophy is to nurture students to have a fun and positive relationship with music no matter the level or age. My focus on a classical vocal technique gives the student a clear understanding of vocal technique, including: breathing techniques, pitch control, musicality and the knowledge to explore any genre of song. Basic music theory, rhythm, diction, sight-reading and ear training are also taught to the student to support a well rounded musical experience. I also teaches students how to practice, giving them the tools to feel confident in their own learning process. Absolute beginners are welcome!
For online course, piano tracks are provided for you to sing along with during the lesson and we have a lot of fun together.

About Me

Hi! I am Jessica and I am from Canada. I am a classical singer, singing teacher and English language coach. I enjoy working with all levels and ages and my favourite part of teaching is helping someone to realize that they can learn a new skill, be it English or music! I enjoy cycling, reading, exploring the Netherlands, singing with my duo partner in Duo TInuviel, and spending time taking my two kittens for adventures.

Education

I have studied music for 25 years playing violin, cello and singing. I studied at the University of British Columbia, completed my Bachelor Degree in Music and Voice, University of Toronto (both in Canada) and continuously advance my education as a performer and teacher through private lessons, masterclass and courses. I have traveled around Canada and Europe with my studies and performances.

Experience / Qualifications

10 years teaching children, teenagers and adults of all ages music appreciation and singing lessons in several cities across Canada, Berlin (Germany) and in Utrecht (Netherlands). I taught with my private studio as well as an employee with multiple music studios. I also work with my own singing teacher in private lessons on Singing Pedagogy.

Reviews (1)

Very knowledgeable and fun
Knowing English in the Netherlands is an important skill. Being confident with the grammar, comprehension and diction with English opens doors for you locally and internationally. I offer English lessons that focus on application for all levels and goals. You learn to correctly pronounce North American or Mid-Atlantic English (not-quite British), and have creative and goal specific exercises and lesson plans all tailored to your needs. I work with children and school-aged children, young professionals preparing for interviews, as well as adults wanting to sharpen their skills and take their English to the next level.

Adrián
Piano lessons for all ages and levels. Come and enjoy music!
Hi! I am Adrian, I am professional pianist and a certified piano teacher. I have many years of experience in performing and teaching students of all ages and levels, both oficially and privately. My main goal is to share my passion for music, adapting to your needs and taste so that you can learn at your own rythm and enjoying every minute of it!

Valentina
Have fun by learning how to play the clarinet and discovering how the music works!
Do you want to have fun learning how to play the most beautiful instrument in the world or improve your skills with it? I'd be delighted to do it with you! I'm a classical clarinetist, I have two masters (recently graduated at Codarts) and different experience in orchestra, chamber music and teaching! My goal as a teacher is to stimulate the student to study in order to be at the disposal of music and not a passive player as can happen many times when you undertake a new study. That is why I like to play with my students and organize little private concerts and try-out. Concerning the music theory lessons, I am not going to bore you with long and incomprehensible explanations! We will study it in a fun and effective way! I've been studying music since I'm five years old and I started with the Kodaly method that made me approach music in a very natural way! I hope to see you soon!

Dutch conversation lessons for children, teenagers and adults
My way of teaching is including having fun. Why?! It can be really "scary" to learn a different language, but not with me! I will make you feel confident in speaking another language, so you will be ready to explore more and more by yourself in time. We will focus on listening, pronunciation and conversation. We will do this by reading, listening and I will be explaining the Dutch grammar step by step. Afterwards I will challenge you with some homework you need to prepare for the next time ;) Ready for this challenge? See you in my class than!!!

Group lessons Music on your lap. Grouplessons Music for toddlers and parents. For parents with a child from 0 to 4 years old.
Even at this young age, children enjoy singing, dancing and making music together with small rhythm instruments. In this way, you playfully stimulate the development of your (grand) child. And do not think that the children have to sit on their lap all the time! We also enjoy moving and dancing.

Professional violinist is giving lessons of violin online! Learn to play violin and enjoy every lesson! 😊
In this violin course you will learn a foundation in learning one of the most rewarding instruments in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Grip the bow, hold the violin, have the perfect hand position and enjoy playing the strings while learning how to read the notes, the violin rhythm and technique. Students will generally learn better if they feel a connection developing with their teacher, whether that’s through humour, showing care about their development, or making sure teacher devote time equally to all students when in a group. You will not regret. 😊
