Singing lessons for young and old, at your own pace (classical and other styles)
Do you like to sing and want to develop your voice? Great, because singing is great fun and healthy! During my lessons we will explore the possibilities of your voice together. The development of a healthy, natural voice and pleasure are central. That is why the lessons are fully adapted to your qualities, taste and pace. Together we work on a solid singing technique, breathing, articulation, interpretation, musicality and voice hygiene. We explore the classical singing repertoire and look for music that fits your voice. You can also make a trip to other genres (jazz, pop, musical, etc.) You learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but with a good singing technique you can handle a lot of styles! Why you should come to class: - You have always wanted to learn to sing, with or without a specific goal in mind - You are curious about the possibilities for (further) developing your voice - You are looking for a creative outlet - You suffer from a often tired speaking voice and want to make it stronger - You sing in a choir and you want to work on your singing technique or you need some extra help while studying - ... Whatever your motivation, you are always welcome! Do you have questions or doubts about whether singing is something for you? Do not hesitate to contact me.

Cinematic culture / acting for screen - theory and practice
Arts are essential in an individual's personal development. Some people find their way alone, and some have to opportunity to be guided, encouraged and pushed by someone who has been in the industry for years. To be taking this kind of course with me will consist in laying a strong foundation of knowledge in domains such as literature, performing arts and cinema, equaled by practice. However, considering that I will be working with young people, I will not bring to my class rules and techniques. Everyone has different interests and strengths and I intend to discover it, dig into and flourish their specific needs. Each student will have their own personalized schedule / training.

Singing lessons in English for all levels by professional voice teacher, vocal coach and singer
I'm a former New York City voice teacher/coach, professional singer and an award winning composer who has relocated to Berlin. I've taught with the most reputable children's musical theatre organizations in NYC (TADA!, Brooklyn Children's Theatre, The Neighborhood Playhouse) with students of all ages as well as private students and I've worked with Broadway stars such as Laura Osnes, Karen Mason and Ron Bohmer, who have also recorded my music, and I'm excited to bring my 20 yrs of teaching experience to Berlin! I teach songwriting as well, if that is something you're interested in. I'm a classically trained singer who performed with the San Francisco Opera and other companies both in opera and musical theatre for many years. Though I specialize now in musical theatre, I am happy and comfortable teaching you to sing in whatever style you prefer. The basics are the same! In our lessons, we will work on breath, correct vowel pronunciation, placement, diction, etc... as well as getting rid of the tension and habits that keep us from singing freely and beautifully. We will also work on the musical and dramatic aspects of the material we choose together, so that you will feel comfortable at an audition or a performance. And I keep lessons fun so that you can both learn and progress each week AND enjoy yourself! Whether just starting out or a professional who needs help working on an audition or role, I can help you reach your goals!
