PLACES, FEES - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Classical and jazz saxophone lessons - Geneva and surroundings
Saxophonist graduate and teacher at the music school of Thoiry, I offer my lessons for all levels and all ages. After a double training in classical and jazz, I currently teach classical saxophone, jazz, big band and saxophone ensemble. The lessons are generally separated into two parts with a rather technical / music theory part and a more playful part where we can play duets, pieces with piano accompaniment or jazz standards. I also sometimes bring all my students together on afternoons to be able to play a saxophone ensemble, it's very educational! Classes are generally 45 minutes for the youngest (6 years old minimum) and can go up to 1:30. Do not hesitate to let me know your desires and objectives. We will see together what type of pieces suits you best. Hope to meet you !

Lyrical singing
Do you like to sing? Do you want to increase your abilities? Do you want to learn to use the full range of your voice with taste and pleasure? I am a professional singer with experience in teaching singing. I graduated in Master's degree in Performance at the Academy of Arts in Slovakia and at the HEM in Master's degree in Specialized Interpreting in Geneva. During my studies I attended several master classes with famous artists like Mirella Freni, Patricia Petibon, Mara Zampieri, Luciana D'Intino and many others. My classes are suitable for all levels (from 14 years old) and are personalized according to the individual needs of each student. I give my shopping in French, English, Italian and Hungarian. The program consists of - Pose the voice: you learn the vocal technique with the use of deep breathing with the diaphragm and the toric breaking and to emit the full, round and vibrating sounds, without vacillation or trembling, with ease without forcing the volume of the voice. - Repertoire: the range of the lyric repertoire is very wide. You have to find the right personal piece for everyone at the base of their voice, preferences and musical taste. - Emotions: with music one can express a very wide range of emotions. To be able to express emotions that you want, you have to know and understand them. With the help of specific excercises we can learn how to memorize positive emotions and how to overcome negative emotions such as stalking. - Solfége: for beginners I also propose the course of the solfége base (the musical writing, the rhythm and the musical theory) on request, which can be part of the singing course. The course can take place at addresses in Geneva or at the student's home in Geneva.

Singing lessons, voice coach, all levels are welcome
The methodology depends on the student needs. A typical lesson includes voice warm-up exercises. The student learns to become familiar with his voice. Then, for example, we can work on a chosen piece, improve it or interpret it with different styles. Improvisation exercises can also be on the program. It all depends on the student's goal and why they want to take lessons :) About me : I am a solo singer, pianist and guitarist. I studied the piano for 8 years at the Geneva Conservatory and singing for 5 years at the ETM school in Geneva. I also participated in many musical performances during events. Since 2013, I have been teaching singing and languages. I am also a painter, muralist and author of two novels.
