Denise
Singing classes in Vienna for all age students and musical styles (Online/Offline)
Dear students: My name is Denise and I'm a professional singer with a singing master's degree from Catalonia's Music College (ESMUC) specialized in Historical Singing, Musicology and Music Education. My experience runs mostly in early and classical music with an active performing life, nevertheless I also have the experience and knowledge of popular musical styles such as Latin-American folk, jazz and musicals. As a docent or vocal coach I've collaborate with different academic institutions and private artistic projects, focusing mostly on international students or social integration programs. I have years of experience teaching children, teenagers and adults in both Latin-America and Europe, therefore understanding different appreciation levels and needs. My main goal is to help the student discover her or his voice while enjoying making music. **Class suggestions and indications** No experience is needed just bring your enthusiasm and favorite music. Classes can be given either in English, Spanish, French or Deutsch. There are no limit for styles, bring your favorite music and I will provide a safe environment for your personal and musical growth. For Children I strongly recommend the 45 min class since their attention span and body development is different from an adult. Feel free to contact me in case of further questions. I would love to work together to achieve your musical goals. All my best, Denise

Singing Lessons and Vocal Coaching for all ages and abilities
All classes will be catered towards the ability, experience and ages of the individuals. For all classes I start with a warm up, followed by strengthening skills, voice exercises and vocal development. Then we will work on a song of your choosing or a song of my choosing, if you'd prefer, of any style or genre. We can either work on songs for fun, building repertoire, examinations or performance practise. I aim to ensure that everyone comes out of my lessons feeling as though they have learned something new, improved on something and are feeling proud of themselves! I will happily teach any age, level and ability, and will personalise all lessons to suit each particular student in order to accommodate their style, interests, goals and aspirations. In terms of style, I will happily assist and coach you with any style(s) of your choosing- I specialise in Musical Theatre, Opera and Classical, but am trained to teach any genre (Rock, Pop, etc). For those who are wanting to audition for drama/performing arts schools, I can offer lessons specialising in suitable technique; as well as focusing on repertoire development, dealing with nerves, audition anxiety and stage fright, acting through song, audition cuts and general song coaching. For those who are professionals, semi-professionals and university singing students, I am happy to tailor lessons to focus on particular songs you are working on; assist you in strengthening and finding your mix, chest voice, head voice, etc, and/or focus on anything of your choosing! For those who are beginners, hello and welcome! I am more than happy to teach beginners of any age, whether you are just starting for fun, or starting with the intention of pursuing singing seriously. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your vocal types and am keen and excited to get started!

Cheslava
Piano and Singing tutor with 5 years experience and professional education
From my childhood I have been studying music and art: sang in choir and solo, played piano, painted, studied music history and literature, solfeggio. Later in college I have also learned choir conducting, had ensemble and choir singing lessons, cultural studies. During last year in university I had pedagogy practice at university and at private art school (where I worked as a music tutor before the war - piano, voice). I truly enjoyed working with students. They all were different age (8 - 40+ years old) and level. But all were very interesting and work was pleasant. My education was very various: my core subjects were conducting, choir, voice, piano. So it allowed me to work with children, teens and adults with quite wide range of interests and needs: some students needed/wanted to learn particular composition(s), sometimes pop songs arrangements, some were interested in “introduction” to the music, some wanted to renew skills they gained in their childhood and continue their journey to the music world. In addition I prepared presentations (which contained information about cultural and historical background and musical and character/art analysis). So after graduation from choir conducting faculty (which allowed me to deepen my knowledge in many important compatible branches) I concentrated on studying classical singing and piano, expanded my cultural studies and analysis knowledge, practiced solfeggio and harmony.
