Learning the basics of classical singing technique

This class is suitable for anyone wishing to learn about the voice. I teach people that already sing and want to develop further their technique and repertoire but also people who have never sang before and who want to learn how to use their voice for the first time. I am a very passionate teacher who enjoys finding the right tools to make each person enjoy more their singing. We will focus a lot on connecting the voice with the breath and the body and on releasing tension from all the muscles that work together to create the sound.

You might think that you will have to sing all kinds of high opera aria's during this class. Don't worry, this is not true of course! You can sing any music you like, including other music styles. You will learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but this will help you develop your voice for any kind of genre.

You are very welcome to do a try-out lesson. During this lesson we can experiment with all kind of easygoing exercises and you can see if my way of teaching is what you are looking for and what you feel comfortable with!

About Me

My name is Floor and I am a professional opera singer. Parallel to performing I love teaching everything I know and have experienced about singing. I have gone through a long process with my own singing to get where I wanted to be with my voice (singing as freely as possible) and I have tried many different teachers and approaches myself. Thanks to this long journey I have collected a lot of knowledge and tools on how to develop the voice. It has also thought me that every singer has a different relation with his voice and that every singer learns in a different way. Therefore I always adapt my way of teaching to the personality of the singer and always try to find the right keys to make someone grow with his voice. This is always a great challenge. What I also like about teaching singing is that it is very personal and it can almost be like a therapy. It makes you more connected to yourself and release a lot of stress! It's always so wonderful to see people leaving the studio which much more confidence and joy as when they entered.

Danny
SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please Everybody generally consists of chord progressions and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hit or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you play 'what' guitar or piano, then you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antenna 's are always open :-) and for some it's a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and 2 sixes lines - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can get strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all, I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to write my science about songs, share it with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book with me for an hour. Then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

Jules
Vocal technical coaching (all styles) and singing (lyrical) on Lausanne and its surroundings
How to learn to sing? To sing just and well? To answer these complex questions, I was interested in phonatory mechanisms, with speech therapists and phoniatres, I studied singing with a dozen singing teachers, I participated in many Masterclasses and trained myself in different institutions: first at the conservatories of Vaulx-en-Velin and Mâcon, then at the Regional Conservatory of Montpellier, and finally at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Lausanne where I am currently studying with Leontina Vaduva. It is first of all through passion that I want to convey what I have learned. This is felt, according to the words of my students, in my way of teaching which reconciles the rigor of art and the pleasure of singing. In my pedagogical approach, I clearly separate the vocal technique and the art of singing, that is to say the management of an objective mechanism, physical and physiological, of sound production (articulation of the language, management of the pressures subglottic and supra-glottic to achieve a pneumo-phono-resonantial balance), and the shaping of this sound to achieve musical beauty (make a beautiful "legato" line, tempo variations, nuances, etc.). ). When I start with a new student, I first make a diagnosis to determine the range of the voice, the level of resonantial passages, and check the health of the larynx (tonicity, endurance, flexibility). The typical course begins with vocal technique exercises and ends with the work of a musical piece. I adapt my course according to the needs of each one (for example, I can start with a Feldenkreis or Alexander technique exercise, relaxation, breath, or a physical warm-up), but also according to the desires and tastes of the student (the technical part will last more or less long). Considering that the stage is important for personal fulfillment and to set goals in music, I propose to my students to participate in the auditions and group lessons of the music school where I work in Lutry.

Claire
Singing, vocal technique for speaking and singing.
A TCM-certified vocal instructor and vocal coach, I teach beginning and advanced singers, amateur and pro. I teach principles of healthy, balanced phonation using the TCM approach. TCM is an evidence-based approach to vocal health for speaking and singing, developed by British voice researcher and teacher Allan Wright. It is based on current research in vocal physiology, acoustics, vocal rehabilitation and vocal pedagogy, and caters to all singers, regardless of musical style or aesthetics. I also provide classes to actors and all other voice professionals who wish to train or re-train their voice for speaking or singing. I also offer artistic coaching in my classes, approaching interpretation in full respect of the style in which singers wish to express their artistry, providing them with a toolbox of targeted, effective, playful techniques to help them achieve their musical goals. I like to create and maintain a collaborative, focused and benevolent working atmosphere in all of my classes and workshops. As a singer, I self-accompany on piano or guitar, and I offer singers who accompany themselves training tips to enhance their self-accompanied singing and/or playing. Singers/actors/voice professionals may choose to have lessons either on a regular basis or occasionally, whenever they seek a solution to a particular vocal problem. Each class includes a vocal warm-up, discussion of vocal or musical objective for the class, followed by work on a song or text - or passage from a song or text - which the singer needs technical or musical help with. Classes end with a short vocal cool-down and a recap of what we worked on and what proved most helpful, so that students know precisely what to work on between classes. I was trained and certified in Nantes (France) by Allan Wright, and have been teaching TCM since 2012 to singers who express themselves in different musical styles. I also use TCM in corporate and community settings to help voice professional from all venues. TCM brings about rapid and lasting benefits both to singers who wish to develop a healthy, powerful singing voice, and to singers or speakers who seek relief from vocal fatigue and need to retrain their voice to cope with the vocal demands of their profession.
