My first lesson with Maria was great! I got both theoretical and already practical inputs. Maria is a very friendly and cheerful person who enjoys teaching. I can highly recommend her.
Maria is a fantastic teacher. She has in-depth knowledge about singing and how to control the voice. Indeed she led me through the lesson very patiently, naturally, pedagogically and professionally despite my insecurities. I loved it, and I am already looking forward to the next lessons.
Great first lesson
Maria is full of energy and after just one lesson, I felt in good hands and noticed some improvements. Looking forward to the next lesson!
In depth knowledge on how the human body expresses different tonalities. Many techniques for using (not abusing) the vocal chords correctly, in order to find your voice :)

Pop, rock, jazz Singing Lessons and Vocal Coaching
Have you always dreamed: of singing with freedom and resonance, with ease and flexibility? of belting out your favourite rock ballad and spellbinding the crowd? of having a huge range and expressive power that makes people’s jaws drop? I can help you free your voice and find your true sound through my holistic teaching approach. I will help you get back in touch with your breath and the freedom you once felt in your voice as a child. I will help with any relaxation, placement, strain issues you may have and extend your range and give you resonance and power. If you have any health issues that may affect your voice I can give you advice and guidance, special exercises , yoga routines etc - having suffered myself from GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) and a resulting small vocal node in the past, and having dealt with various health issues - despite which I have managed to still work as a singer! I can teach you to: - Improvise and write songs. - Develop your expression. - Develop your technique without losing your own unique sound. - Extend your range to at least 3 octaves (sometimes even 4!) - Breath control and control of your entire range. - Sing in a variety of techniques and styles- become a versatile singer! - Basic guitar/keyboard skills if requested. - Music Theory lessons upon request. I have an acute ear for detail and upon our first session and hearing you we will be able to discuss your voice and how to move forward.

Classical Singing and Vocal Technique for All Levels
This course is for those who wish to learn how to sing and use good vocal technique. Although I am classically trained, I believe that anyone from any vocal genre can use good technique to further both their artistic pursuits and vocal health / longevity. In this course, I will teach you how to sing (and support the voice), how to apply it to your repertoire, and will strengthen your musicality.

Improve your singing ! -- No matter where you start!
I am a singer, currently studying in ZHDK in a solo performance master. I studied classical singing, but besides that, I had a jazz band and performed in 2 musicals, so I explored many genres. I am very curious about the voice, and how every person can improve, no matter the starting level! I have also studied the piano so I can accompany you (not a professional pianist, though) Learning singing is an interesting inner path, working on the "posture", breathing, body tensions, but also getting attentive to the quality of sounds, about the characteristics of every style, and about who you are as a person! I'm interested to work on what you would like to improve, and would be very interested in working with people who sing "out of tune" and think they sing very badly! There is an interesting work to do, finding the confidence in your ears and voice!

DUOLES Vocals. Would you like to sing with a singing buddy? That is also possible! Online possibilities as well!
Your body is your instrument when singing. We try to make that instrument sound as beautiful as possible by working on sound formation. This allows the vocal cords to move more freely, so that you are less tired when singing. Your voice becomes fuller and you can sing higher and lower tones. During the singing lessons we are also busy with articulation, the pronunciation of foreign languages and also with the meaning and feeling of a certain piece. Of course you decide what kind of music you will sing. Whether you sing alone in the shower or you sit in a choir for example and you encounter certain difficulties in general or a certain piece? Feel free to take your choir part to class and together we will see how we can make it easier for you. We are working on a repertoire that you love. We can also make a journey of discovery together to your favorite music. WHO CAN LEARN TO SING? Everyone can learn to sing. Because of the singing lessons you will notice that singing becomes easier. Moreover, singing is good for relaxation, both of body and mind. Singing is just enjoying! YOUR OWN INSTRUMENT As a singer or singer you already have one advantage over instrumentalists: you don't have to buy an (expensive) instrument. You always have your instrument with you, but ... you must take good care of your instrument!

Elena
Professional mezzosoprano offers singing lesson to children and adults!
Hello! I’m Elena, I’m Italian and I’m an opera singer :) I’ve been training children and teens for 6 years, especially helping them with auditions and tests. I’ve been singing in theaters almost all my life since I started when I was just 8; nowadays I work as a professional mezzosoprano all around the world both in educational projects for kids and children and in big productions. I like teaching because I can share my experience with somebody that needs it and I always get to learn something from my pupils too: I swear teaching makes me a better singer. I give lessons for any kind of purpose: - learning music - improving musicality - preparing an audition - finding our own voice - overcoming insecurity Everybody is different, so everybody has its own path to go through; I cater my lessons on the pupil’s needs, and even if the method is always classical, I make sure that the hour of lesson is a fun moment as well as a learning experience. Music is life and life is fun!

Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
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.

Singing tutor, opera tutor, vocal coach, pop singing, rock singing
I am a vocal coach and singer. I have been teaching vocals for 6 years. I have been performing in my city and on various contracts (France, Turkey, cruise ships) since 2010. I can sing and will teach you to sing opera, pop, pop rock and extreme vocals. My goal is - if you sing and it doesn’t hurt, then this sound may be. And if you want to develop your voice, change your voice, it depends on two people: me and you))).

Singing with an italian soprano from classical opera singing to modern and pop.
My classes are different depending on your level and age. With children from 7 to 12 we start by doing easy vocalise and start training the ear with intonation, we then have fun singing your favourite songs. With teenagers I also start with some vocalises, a little more elaborate. Depending on the students capabilities we start establishing a comfortable range for them and then proceed to singing. For my older students ideally I divide our lesson into 2 sections. We work on respiration and how the diaphragm works. We do scales and arpeggios and work on intonation. We then proceed to singing and putting into practice our technique. Some students might need more technique before they actually sing, I like to take things slowly and make sure the student feels confident and comfortable singing. I teach children, teenagers and adults, from beginners to more advanced. A classical training enables you to sing in any kind of way, so don’t hesitate and let’s sing!

Olivier
Voice, music and ear training for all ages and styles
Singing and making music are a lot of fun, but not the easiest thing... no matter which level you're at. For this, one needs energy, concentration and, above all, patience. But who succeeds in making progress finds that it's the best feeling ever to make music while using you best potential. That's what I can help with. You sing all the time, but you want to improve your technique? Or you're a complete beginner and you want to get a taste of this intriguing music world? You're already singing in a band but you feel like your voice is getting tired easily, or that you need some tricks for finding notes? Then I can definitely help you, no matter your age or your style of music. My goal with this course is that you find your hobby easier and even more fun than it is already. I'm currently finishing my master's degree in opera singing at the MUK and I use my knowledge to sing pop, jazz, funk... and so on, accompanied by my guitar/keyboard. I'm looking forward to getting to know you!
