Jessica
Graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Jazz singing and in the process of my master's degree in musical pedagogy, I give jazz and pop singing lessons for all ages
Singing is a unique way to have fun and externalize all that we have accumulated during the day. In a world where it's hard to stop, it's a moment for yourself, where you can reconnect with your body and your emotions. During these lessons, we will approach vocal technique and interpretation on pieces of your choice. Learning to manage your voice as you manage an instrument, in order to be able to have even more pleasure in singing and to blossom in music, will be our main goal.

Lezioni di Chitarra per principianti ed esperti - Guitar lessons for beginners and experts
Sono un musicista e compositore specializzato in chitarra e nella musica Jazz, con esperienza nell'ambito Rock e Pop, e anche in altri stili musicali. Nelle mie lezioni di chitarra imparerai le nozioni base per poter suonare questo strumento. Potrai imparare a suonare brani e riff della tradizione Rock e Pop, o canzoni Jazz come gli Standards o brani più moderni. Imparerai scale e arpeggi che ti saranno di fondamentale importanza per approcciarti al concetto di improvvisazione. Ebbene si, potrai imparare ad improvvisare e scrivere della tua musica! Per i più "avanzati" si andrà più a fondo in argomenti, come la tecnica sullo strumento piuttosto che l'improvvisazione, lo sviluppo del senso melodico e ritmico o composizioni originali. Insieme studieremo brani e approfondiremo la teoria musicale per usarla nella pratica. Condividerò con voi i miei approcci per scrivere musica e sviluppare creatività. Ma soprattuto, a prescindere dal tuo livello attuale, ti divertirai! Non vedo l'ora di vedervi! I am a musician and composer specializing in guitar and Jazz music, with experience in Rock and Pop, and in other musical genres. In my guitar lessons you will learn the basics of playing this instrument. You will learn to play traditional Rock and Pop songs and riffs, or Jazz songs as Standard or modern songs. You will learn scales and arpeggios that will be absolutely important for you to get closer to the concept of improvisation. Yes, you will learn how to improvise and write your own music! For the more "advanced" we will go deeper into topics, such as the technique of the instrument, improvisation, the development of the melodic and rhythmic sense or your original compositions. Together we will learn songs and delve into music theory to put it in a practical way. I will share with you my approach for writing music and developing creativity. But most of all, regardless of your level, you will have fun! I am looking forward to see you!

We move progressively from basic chords to more complex structures and songs. I work on scales, chords, rhythm and aural skills one step at a time in a practical and dynamic method ADAPTED TO EACH LEVEL. I'm also happy to provide a more structured program based in solfége (reading, writing scores) for the ones who are preparing to enter a music school or academy. My top priority is that students have fun and enjoy themselves during the process of learning. Express yourself through music! I teach in English, Spanish and Italian

Individual classical singing lessons for all levels
I am currently a final year masters student studying music pedagogy at the Schola Cantorum in Basel. I am passionate about teaching classical singing and working in close contact with students of all ages. Having several years of experience not only as a performer but also as a teacher, I realise just how important it is for my students’ success and development to focus on their individual needs and interests. At the core of every student’s tuition is a strong focus both on developing solid technique and exploring repertoire that they enjoy and feel comfortable with! I like to teach students of all different levels - beginners as well as advanced - and I am also open to students who would prefer group tuition.

Judit
Lessons of classical singing: opera, lieder, oratorium.
I am a classical singer (mezzosoprano) from Barcelona. I started my musical studies playing the violin and the viola. I was singing in choirs from I was 5, and there my love for singing started. I studied my bachelor degree in The Neteherlands with the teacher Hanneke de Witt, I have a double degree: performence and pedagogy. Now I am going to do my master with Marcel Bonne. My main goal when I teach is to help the student to find the freedom on the vocal, physical and mental expression. I like to work on music but also on tecninc. I think it is a very important part to find the freedom. I ike to create a lovely space when I teach where the student can find the support and the freedom to try out different things. I have a lot of patience, as a singer you need to be patient and to try again and again. I love to help the students to find their way to teach themselves so they don't need that much lessons in the futur.

As a singer, studying at the Conservatory, I provide singing lessons for all levels students: beginner, intermediate and advanced. I focus on vocal technique, good choice of the repertoire and interpretation. Learning singing and developping one's instrument requires regularity in the practice, the best option is thus to plan a lesson every week or every two weeks.

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. Here's what one of my 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 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!

Deborah
Group lesson Singing Pregnant: Group Singing during pregnancy. Online possible too.
Singing gives relaxation; the exercises used in singing technique such as low breathing and relaxation exercises are also pleasant and useful when you are pregnant. Furthermore, research has shown that the unborn child already responds to music. For example, music that is often repeated during pregnancy provokes a calming response when the baby is born. Also the voice of the mother is recognized immediately after birth. Deborah would therefore like to start with a singing group for pregnant women. Besides the exercises, we sing canons, polyphonic music and lullabies in different languages ​​and styles.

Laura
