Have fun and enjoy the experience of making music together.

I have been working as a singing teacher since 2011 and I'd love to pass on my knowledge and experience as a performer and songwriter to you. In addition to my Bachelor and Master degrees in Jazz/Pop Voice Performance and Vocal Education (cities of study: Berlin, Mainz, Stuttgart, Lisbon) I regularly attend courses of the newest programs and voice research to constantly enrich your lesson with findings from modern vocal pedagogy.

Over the last 11 years my numerous students taught me that there is no universal recipe for vocal improvement, but there are indeed a lot of methods that can get you where you want. When planning your lesson I always take into account your personal strengths to help you find the best way to healthy, effortlessly and joyful singing.

About Me

Hi :)

I sing jazz and pop music with German, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese lyrics.

I play the piano, accompany myself with various percussion instruments and do sometimes also take up the ukulele.

I compose my own songs, and help others to write their own music and lyrics.

I do teach singing and (almost) everything related to it.

I am grateful to be able to pass on her experiences and even more grateful to learn something new from you every lesson.

I like to work artistically, scientifically, spontaneously, organized, loudly and quietly.
But above all, I love working with different people and offer 100% enthusiasm to every project, every song and every student.

Lessen contrabas en Basgitaar. Jazz, funk, blues, rock, pop
Private lessons from a very experienced bassist with over 10 years of experience performing internationally and more than 5 years as a teacher. The lessons are for all levels, it is not necessary to have previous experience. In the lessons, we'll learn the instrument and musical theory but the main focus is to play and have fun doing so. In my experience, that's the key to success. I'm mainly focused on Jazz music but I've performed several different styles of music and the lessons can be tailored to your musical interests. I've learned to play this instrument with the best teachers in Europe but I also studied in NYC with Jazz legends such as Buster Williams, Reggie Workman and David Wong.

Music lessons: Double bass, bass guitar. Jazz, classical and world-music. Learn how to study
Hey there! In my lessons, what you want is the most important. That's why we create together a plan of study with ideas, goals and subjects to reach out our dream to make music (that's also my dream) Nevertheless, I can give you an overview of the content: I divide the music theory in two: Technical and Musical. Technical Theory regarding all the concepts and information related to music, and Musical Theory regarding the ideas and concepts to help us understand and improve the performance of music. Besides that, we look to harmony in a functional, rhythmical and organic way. We learn and approach music from the first lesson, looking at it from different angles (understanding rhythm and essence of a song for example). All this plus a nice diet of assignments and exercises: D Furthermore, we put especial attention to enjoying music. That means playing but also listening music! For me, that's one of the best ways to learn :) And of course, we learn as well by making mistakes, so at the end it's all about fun and trying things out;) Remember: "True success isn't just getting what you want in life - it's liking what you get";) César
