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 get tired less quickly when singing. Your voice becomes fuller and you can sing higher and lower notes. During the singing lessons we also work on articulation, the pronunciation of foreign languages and also on the meaning of and your feelings about a particular piece. Of course you decide what kind of music you will sing. Whether you sing alone in the shower or whether you are in a choir and encounter certain difficulties in general or with a specific piece? Please feel free to bring your choir part to class and we will see together how we can make this easier for you. We work on 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 you already have one advantage over instrumentalists: you do not have to buy an (expensive) instrument. You always have your instrument with you, but... you have to take good care of your instrument!

Private guitar lessons for every level: from basic chords to out of the box improvisation
Hey! My name is Richard and I give private lessons to all levels. For guitar, it is important that you can improve yourself in a pleasant environment in a fun way where your interests are central. Do you want to delve deeper into a certain style? Do you want to create your own sound on your guitar using amps, and pedals, ...? I can help you with all that! Knowledge of solfège or music theory is not required, we can always discuss this in class if you wish, but that is certainly not mandatory ;) I have been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and for several years now I have been playing in professional bands with which I have been able to play on sugar rock, for example. The lessons would take place at my home in Mol or via webcam. If necessary, we can always agree on something else. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions and I will answer as soon as possible. See you soon! Richard PS: my specified hours are a guideline, if this does not suit you, you can certainly send us a message and we will try to arrange something :)

Gisel
Singing Classes with The Voice of Switzerland semi-finalist
Hi! My name is Gisel de Marco and I'm a singer, songwriter, participant and winner of several contests like "The Voice of Switzerland" (SRF), "Die grosse Entscheidungsshow" (SRF), "With you in Hollywood" (Warner Channel) and Sellaband. I've been learning, teaching and performing since 1998 and I have a wide experience training and developing my student's voices through a solid and healthy vocal technique that can be applied to all styles of music and that has the particularity of protecting the vocal chords and safely developing the vocal range. I can teach you to: - Control your breathing and improve your breathing capacity - Increase and control your vocal range - Improvise and develop your own style - Work on popular vocal techniques: vibrato, falsetto, riffs, vocal runs, head voice, mixed voice, chest voice - Discover and enhance your self expression, confidence and interpretation - Master the stage and improve your stage presence If you have any questions, please get in touch! In case you'd like to know me better, here is my story: In 2003, after winning the contest sponsored by Warner Channel's “The Bachelorette”, Gisel flew to Jamaica, where she had the opportunity to perform and she was broadcasted in all Latin America. From that point on, Gisel entered and won a singing and songwriting competition “With you in Hollywood”, a show produced by Warner Channel. Winning that contest gave her the opportunity to travel to Hollywood in 2004, where she performed in the “City of Angels.” Afterwards, in August 2004, Gisel joined a Rock & Roll band known as “The Spanglish Band” and became the lead female vocal singer. This was a great opportunity to perform in some well-known clubs, restaurants, and events. She had also performed live in a key political event that was attended by more than 5000 VIP personalities including the winner of the Nobel Prize in literature, Mario Vargas Llosa (to whom she sang the “Happy Birthday” live acapella) and a large number of Presidents from Spain, Uruguay, Mexico and several other politicians. On March 22, 2007, she joined SellaBand.com. In this fund-raising platform, she became the fastest “Final Countdown” in SellaBand’s history to that date, raising approximately $14,000 in 2 days becoming the 25th artist to achieve $50,000 for the recording of her debut album, “All The Way”. In 2010, she began an European and Asian Tour, performing in countries like the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Russia. In 2013, and after several pre-auditions, she was chosen to participate at the Blind Auditions of the world-wide popular singing contest “The Voice of Switzerland“. With her rendition of the Whitney Houston’s hit “I Have Nothing” she was chosen by the legendary blues artist Philipp Fankhauser to join his team of 10 singers. After winning “The Battles” and the “Sing-Off”, she went through to the final stage of the broadcast “The Live Shows”, where she became one of the best 12 singers in Switzerland. Later 2013, Gisel submitted a song for the Swiss selections of the Eurovision Song Contest. Together with her teammates of Team Philipp from the Voice of Switzerland, Ricardo Sanz and Iris Moné, she recorded the latin-pop flavor song titled “Together Forever” with the band name “3 for All”. After several internal selections and the public vote, Together Forever made it to the Swiss National Finals (“Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow”) aired on the 1st of February, 2014. The song immediately became a favorite among the Eurofans of all around the world and international polls, including the poll organized by one of the most important Swiss newspapers “20 Minuten”. On the 1st of February 2014, 3 for All performed live “Together Forever” and the cover song “All for Love” in an electrifying performance where they managed to get a standing ovation from the audience. After 50% vote of the jury and 50% of the public vote, 3 for All achieved a terrific 3rd position in the Swiss National Final.

Singing Lessons for Beginner and Advanced Students
Deepening my knowledge of singing and passing on my skills to students are the things I love to do most and I have been teaching singing to beginners and professionals for many years now. I start from the basics of breathing, vocal warmup, and anatomy of the phonatory organ, to reach a confident use of the vocal instrument, and mastery of the technique, alongside body awareness. For set-out-artists, for those who want to go further into the technique and receive a guide in the artistic sector, I offer my professionalism in the study of the repertoire and performing techniques, introducing and deepening notions of pronunciation and diction for singers, understanding of the text, acting and executive techniques (applied to singing). Furthermore, my students have the opportunity to make professional recordings, to follow and document their artistic evolution (Self-recording technique lessons can be added). I have a bachelor's degree in classical singing from Conservatorio di Musica “F. Morlacchi” (Perugia, Italy) and I can speak English and Italian in the lessons. I am available both online and in person, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
