About Me

My name is Milda and I am a professional jazz singer and a certified vocal teacher based in the Hague, the Netherlands. I have graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Jazz Vocals at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, where I have also obtained a Teacher's Certificate after completing Minor Studies in Education. Despite being an active musician and performing with my own projects as well as a part of different others (Big Bands and more) in various venues, concerts, and festivals in the Netherlands and Lithuania, I have a broad teaching experience that I am willing to share with you.

I grew up in Lithuania, where I was classically trained (classical voice, choir, classical music theory) for 11 years before coming to the Netherlands and choosing jazz, which, I believe, gives me the freedom to show and express my own musical identity. In my repertoire, I combine modern jazz music with my own compositions, where I blend contemporary jazz, folk, alternative, and classical music influences with improvised music. However, my broad experience with classical, jazz, and pop during my study years makes me very proficient to train and teach in these styles.

During my teaching practice, I have gained various experiences that benefit me as a teacher and educator. I have completed a supervised one-year-long teaching internship to gain my teacher's certificate as well as conducted active private teaching practice for 3 years, teaching students of various levels and ages. In addition to that, I have executed various educational activities and projects such as teaching music in children's summer camp and organizing educational projects for primary school children.

As a teacher, I want to help my students not only to gain valuable tools and skills to become great singers and performers but also to develop their own musicality and authenticity. In a friendly and inspiring environment during my lessons, I want to encourage my students to share their creative ideas and thoughts and to develop their unique personalities through music.

Singing Lessons - A motivating, professional team just for you!
The present course is tutored by a Classical Singer and a Classical Pianist, both study connected to the Royal Conservatory Den Haag. It is preferred to work weekly to optimize results. The singing, and main teacher, is always present to assure the vocal progression. The piano coach will be present as often as requested by the student/advised by the teacher. The pupils will then have the best piano accompaniment. The main objective of the course is to work accordingly with the student's goals to give a well-driven direction to our study. The course it's thought with classic technical basics (healthy vocal benefits) but other styles can be added like the musical, jazz, cabaret, etc... Each case will have a personalized answer. The teachers' connection to the Royal Conservatory also ensures that complex problems can be solved by asking the highest experts. > Lesson structure: ✓ The lessons start with body/posture awareness, movement and breathing exercises followed by an individual set of vocalizes that may incorporate some scales, cords and/or improvisation. ✓ After the warm-up, depending on the student's level and goals, some song methods may fallow and/or the repertoire on which we decided to work. ✓ While working on the pieces several kinds of information will be provided: • The Anatomy of the Voice (body, breathing, vocal cord, resonances, prevention and counseling about vocal disorders); • Language and Phonetic knowledge of Italian, French, German, English, Spanish and Portuguese (+ strategies to enable singing in other languages). • Vocal Interpretation, phrase, prosody, colors, coordination with the piano and tools how to personalize the 'message', among others based on appropriate bibliography; • Drama basics, stage preparation, and fright avoidance strategies. • Music Theory and History in order to understand the pieces more deeply through a quick analysis, period and style. ✓ At the end of each season (non-mandatory) public auditions can be arranged whenever an artistic space would be willing to receive great voices and repertoire. This works as progressive training for students individually and/or coupled - ensemble skills. The lessons can be given in English, Spanish and Portuguese. They can be held at the teacher's location or at the student's address. If you would like to have more information please do not hesitate to contact me!
