Discover your voice with professional singer Olivia! (Classical, pop, musical theatre, opera!)

Are you curious about singing, but feel like you don’t know where to start? Do you already have some experience of singing and are curious about what your voice could achieve at its full potential? Do you feel shy about your voice and wish you could feel confident enough to sing in front of other people? I am Olivia, a professional opera singer who is passionate about teaching singers a healthy vocal technique in all styles of singing, and helping them to grow in confidence along the way. My teaching room is a safe space where students are free to experiment, make mistakes and discover everything about their voice with my full support!

I have been teaching singing privately to pupils of all ages and levels for several years, as well as enjoying a busy performance career. I find that being a regular performer myself is very important when imparting knowledge and advice to my students because I want to teach you more than just the mechanics of singing - I want to guide you towards being an artist and expressing YOUR unique voice and personality. I work on vocal technique, drama and language, and have worked with children, teenagers, and adults - both those hoping to sing professionally and enthusiastic amateurs! Every lesson will include warmups and technical exercises as well as work on repertoire that we will choose together. I can teach in English, French or Italian.

As for my performance experience: I began taking singing lessons at 13 years old after joining the school choir in secondary school in London, and adored the process of training my voice. In my teens, I performed in concerts as a soloist and also in a few musical theatre roles, most notably Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. I moved to Switzerland and trained as an opera singer at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève, and did a Specialised Masters (Soloist) at the Hochschule der Künste Bern.

I have since gone on to perform with the opera houses of Geneva, Lausanne and Lucerne, the Opera House of Zrenjanin in Serbia, the Jeunesses Musicales Opera Studio (Croatia), London Grimeborn Festival, and have been a featured soloist at such concert venues as the Berlin Philharmonic, Salle Paderewski in Lausanne, the BFM in Geneva, the Cologne Philharmonic, and St Johns Smith Square in London. Most recently you may have seen me as Mrs P. in the Swiss première of Michael Nyman's 'The Man who mistook his Wife for a Hat' in Vevey, or if you've been enjoying the program 'Blob Opera' this year, you might be interested to know that I was one of the opera singers working on this project by recording hours of material for a machine to create an algorithm that recreating an opera singer's voice!

Good singing is about solid and healthy vocal technique, a good feeling for music, self-expression and confidence! I would love to work with you to build all of these parts of yourself and to see where your voice takes you.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch with me!

Claudine
Discover the pleasure of singing and the multiple capacities of your instrument body!
You will find a benevolent setting where you can try, start again, make mistakes, without judgment and with pleasure. No prerequisites for getting started. Your rhythm will be respected as well as the style and choice of repertoire you want to work on: pop, current music, musical or classical singing. Come fearlessly with your questions and your desires! Individual lessons for teenagers / adults - Technical work: breath, voice development through exercises adapted to the level and profile of each - Work on a piece from the repertoire: Putting technical work into practice on a piece chosen by the practitioner or by teaching for educational reasons. This moment also allows you to develop the learning of music theory if necessary. Objective: to be able to sing a piece while being comfortable with the accompaniment so that interpretation and pleasure predominate. Semi-private lessons For all ages, levels or tessitura. Form your small group (mixed or not) to do a group singing workshop! - Technical collective work. General approach to singing but also adapted to the needs of each one via bodywork and vocal warm-up. - The course is adapted according to the needs and desires of the group. However, I suggest two ways of working: o Soloist work: each participant brings a piece they wish to work on. Personalized working time that allows other participants to develop listening skills and learn by watching. We help each other, we advise each other with respect and kindness. o Choral work: Singing in several voices is an important part of singing and helps to broaden the repertoire. Work a capella or with the accompaniment of a piece with several voices in order to develop listening to the other, create one and the same voice with several, open up and decomplex! No need to know how to read music! As a choir director, I developed learning tools to allow non readers to work their scores on their own. Musical awakening course from 4 years old. We discover in this workshop the sounds, the rhythms, the instruments. We dance, we sing, we have fun, we learn by playing! - Listening: Recognition of basic rhythms, learning of notes and different sound universes - Fingerboard: Body percussion and practice of small instruments - Breathe: Simple breathing exercise to discover the instrument body. - Sing: whisper, shout, sing! We explore all possibilities from the spoken voice to the sung voice - Play: through games you learn without realizing it! I offer individual lessons of 30 min for children between 4 and 7 years old. It is also possible to form small groups to take a sibling or a group already formed. The course time can be adapted according to the desire of the child or the size of the group formed. Musical awakening lessons from 7 years old Music lessons where we develop the basics of musical awakening. The child is better able to learn more complex rhythms as well as songs sung in one or two voices. We develop our ear, our voice always with pleasure and having fun! - Listening: Recognition of more complex rhythms, recognition of notes and discovery of different styles of music - Fingerboard: Body percussion with several - Breathe: Breathing exercise to develop the voice. - Sing: we learn songs, canons with several voices - Play: you always learn while having fun! I offer 45-minute individual lessons for children from 7 years old. It is also possible to form small groups to take for example a sibling or a group already formed. The course time can be adapted according to the desire of the child or the size of the group formed.

Singing lessons: Vocal technique oriented to diferrent styles. (Opera, Jazz, Pop, Rock) Breath managment, body consciousness, placement.
I´m a profesional Opera Singer, who is also giving lessons in vocal technique since 7 years. This class is for begginers and intermedium level singers who want to improve the manage of their voices. The class starts with different vocalizations and breathing exercises to warm the body and start to understand how the voice works. Then we start to sing in order to apply the new concepts to different songs. The class its adaptable to every pupil, because everyone has their one vocal history, which means, they have different problem, which need differents aproaches.

Emma
Learn to Sing with a Qualified Opera Singer with 6+ years teaching & professional performance experience.
Whether you're a beginner who just wants a confidence boost, or someone with a music background who wants to take your technique up a notch, I'd be so happy to make music with you! The principles of music-based vocal & breath work have such power, & will not only make you feel more oxygenated, but will bring out a strength of voice & character that you didn't know you possessed! I am/have been Peripatetic Vocal Coach at 2 Independent Girls High Schools, 2 Preparatory schools (one of which is all-boys), and teach several homeschoolers (one of whom lives in Zambia, and is online). I'm confident that I can give you the same sound pedagogical experience online that you would receive on site. My current online students live in China, Kyrgstan, New York, Zambia, Cape Town and Switzerland. Here's what one of my mature pupils from 2019 had to say: "I have always loved singing, but never had the confidence to follow through with my passion. As an adult it can be pretty daunting. I had a couple of lessons with Emma, & through her encouragement, patience & great teaching skills, my confidence grew .. She inspired me to believe in myself and my ability to sing, especially when I did not believe it myself. She is a tremendously positive, engaging & fun teacher, & I always came out of her lessons feeling better than I had walking in, & looking forward to the next lesson!" Others in 2022 said: "I now feel that I can sing well beyond 45mins, whereas previously with another coach, it was all that I could manage in a day! I'm also not afraid of high notes anymore, as I've been taught how to approach them healthily and safely." "I have been singing this song for a while, and haven't been able to sing those tops. In one lesson, you've shown me, as a tenor, how to do so - and comfortably!" Colleagues of mine at schools that I teach at have said of my lessons: "It is a privilege to listen to you teach." "I have never heard sounds like that coming from our department!" So what are you waiting for? Join me online, from a vocally safe and sunny home studio, & let's start from where you're at, make music, & have FUN doing it!

Lawrence
Singing lessons in English for all levels by professional voice teacher, vocal coach and singer
I'm a former New York City voice teacher/coach, professional singer and an award winning composer who has relocated to Berlin. I've taught with the most reputable children's musical theatre organizations in NYC (TADA!, Brooklyn Children's Theatre, The Neighborhood Playhouse) with students of all ages as well as private students and I've worked with Broadway stars such as Laura Osnes, Karen Mason and Ron Bohmer, who have also recorded my music, and I'm excited to bring my 20 yrs of teaching experience to Berlin! I teach songwriting as well, if that is something you're interested in. I'm a classically trained singer who performed with the San Francisco Opera and other companies both in opera and musical theatre for many years. Though I specialize now in musical theatre, I am happy and comfortable teaching you to sing in whatever style you prefer. The basics are the same! In our lessons, we will work on breath, correct vowel pronunciation, placement, diction, etc... as well as getting rid of the tension and habits that keep us from singing freely and beautifully. We will also work on the musical and dramatic aspects of the material we choose together, so that you will feel comfortable at an audition or a performance. And I keep lessons fun so that you can both learn and progress each week AND enjoy yourself! Whether just starting out or a professional who needs help working on an audition or role, I can help you reach your goals!

Cécile
State graduate singing teacher from the Richard Cross School, offers personalized voice coaching lessons!
Singing lessons and vocal coaching online or at the singing teacher (M ° Gallieni Line 3). I have been a singing teacher at Cours Florent for 5 years, also a vocal coach on the Lion King show at Disneyland Paris and also more and more vocal coach in private lessons (pros or amateurs). State graduate (diploma of vocal trainer from the Richard Cross school). Trained in the Joe Estill Voice training method (Quebec), and I also took lessons from Nicole Falien, Julia Pelaez, Joy Kane and Christiane Legrand. Coach in French and English of various professional or amateur artists for more than ten years (all styles, from rap to R&B, from song to electronics and everything related to current music). My lessons are for everyone: singers and / or musicians, professional or amateur singer-songwriters, preparation for auditions / castings, coaching of groups in play, artists in the studio, all ages all styles welcome!;) Voice work in all current musical repertoires except lyrical. I accompany you on the piano, or we can work on your instruments, various accompaniments, karaoke. Rap welcome (I have more and more rappers / slammers, we do a lot of work on the flow, the projection, the setting up of the breaths, rhythmic settings, intelligibility of the text etc.) all that is easy to work on when you knows how and that we want to evolve! Being also a singer-songwriter and pianist, I can help you develop your compositions, your songs, place the tonic accents where needed, teach you how to accompany yourself on the piano itself :-) work on the interpretation of the songs of course. Prepare your studio sessions (and/or accompany you there if necessary), before your concerts, your rehearsals... Give you the tips to not get tired, and know how to repair your voice when you have pushed too much, and above all teach you how to project your voice without hurting yourself, etc. In short, to provide you with solid and essential foundations for singing healthily (without hurting yourself!) And freely !! For distance courses (if you prefer, I do it regularly, especially for two years, and also with my students abroad), as long as you have a computer, you're good to go (or at worst a smartphone)! In short I will tell you everything you need to know to free your voice! The difference between "vocal coaching" and "singing lessons" is that I take the singer or singer, the comedian, the actress, the rapper in the vocal state in which he/she arrives, and I pick him up and take him where he/she wants to go, with the repertoire you choose, which can be yours (songwriter), or the one you choose or that I can help you choose according to your range and your musical tastes of course. I do "with" you, with what you are, with what you bring to me as "raw material"! There is always something to improve, whatever your level at the start! :) It can also be just a moment for you, just for the pleasure of singing, whatever you want! Singing is life! Fluent English ;-)

Ziad
Oud & Oriental Arabic Singing Teacher in Mönchengladbach
Experienced Oud & Oriental singing teacher for over 6 years, Lebanese, living in Mönchengladbach. Studied for 8 years at the Lebanese National Conservatory. I was a teacher at Casa Beethoven academy in Lebanon and a private teacher in Lebanon. Played in an oriental orchestra "Loubnan Assalam" for more than 5 years as a concertmaster. My reason for moving to Germany was that I am currently finishing my studies at the University of Kamp Lintfort. Fluent in English, Couramment en français, ولغتي الأم هي اللغة العربية. Aber leider spreche Ich ein bisschen Deutsch. Oud is an oriental instrument, very beautiful and it has recently been used in new cultures in many countries other than the Far Eastern countries of the Middle East due to its soft and beautiful sound. It is not yet very popular in Germany and if you master this instrument you will encounter many demands and opportunities in the near future. If you are hungry to learn an oriental instrument, the Oud is a very good choice. If you are looking to play German music or any kind of music, the combination of Oud with other popular instruments is very beautiful and you can be one of the first who spread this beautiful culture in any kind of music. My recommendation for studying Oud is to start studying notes and how to read them, before playing songs. Most of the new students, usually ask me to study songs without reading notes. This method could work but it will take a long time for the student to understand the basics of the instrument and of music in general. But if you are dedicated and you work hard, we can take a good step in almost a year so that you can start playing easy songs. If you don't like music or you don't love the instrument, I do not recommend you learn it. "More about me" I met My lovely wife in the orchestra, she plays Cello as well. We love music. It is our passion. My hobbies are playing chess, diving, biking, and running. I had an e-commerce business in Lebanon, but unfortunately, after the economic crisis, we closed it, shut down the website, and moved to Germany. Social media channels are still available "TopArabica" I am a friendly person, I love teaching and seeing my students make good progress and play with me duets. It is best to meet in person but if you are away from my location, online lectures can also be provided. Leave me a message and I will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Group lesson Kindergarten music. Group Musiclessons for Children from 4-6 years. Online available too.
Music and movement go hand in hand for young children. In this course, toddlers are busy with music and movement. Simple instruments such as drums and rhythm sticks belong here, but also balls and scarves, for example. There is an appeal to the imagination, different types of music are listened to, and many are sung and danced. This course is actually the logical continuation of Music on lap lessons, but without parents. For

Egle
Opera singer offers lessons for Beginners and Professionals
My course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn to sing. This can be classical, jazz or pop singing. I teach online. I have students from all over the world - USA, India, Mexico, China, Germany, Romania, Italy, etc. Beginners, intermediate and professional singers who have technical difficulties will feel themselves comfortable during my lessons. For me, it is important that after each singing lesson the student feels he has made a little progress. I work with vocal exercises, correct and healthy breathing technique and posture for the first 20-30 minutes and then we move to the musical pieces - songs or arias. Repertoire will be chosen together with the student, paying a special attention to the sustainability and development of his/her voice. I put a special emphasis on expanding the voice range and interpretation of every piece.
