Testimonials How did this work help you in your realms of work/life? „Being a coach, facilitator and trainer I wanted to give my voice more power and control. My lessons with Laura really helped me with that. The combination of her expertise in voice control and yoga breathing made wonder for my voice. I can control the tone the depth and the sound my voice has in all moments.“ Roberta Manoni, Coach, Facilitator and Trainer (Brussels, Belgium) „I took voice/ vocal coaching classes with Laura in early 2019, to prepare my candidature for the German Liberal party's election list for the European Parliament elections 2019, as I was the lead candidate of the liberal party in my home region Rhineland-Palatinate. The voice/ vocal coaching classes with Laura very much helped me to improve my speaking technique, to take better care of and to develop my voice, and to better understand the functioning of my voice – and my body in a broader sense. Laura also taught me useful breathing/ respiration and relaxation techniques, which contributed to making me feel more at ease and comfortable when speaking in public, and also to manage the related stress in such situations. Laura's rich experience both as a singer and musician, vocal coach and yoga teacher, her very empathetic and sensitive nature, and her strong understanding of my specific needs in this situation, have been crucial to making these coaching classes extremely beneficial, insightful and useful for me. I can highly recommend Laura as a vocal coach to anyone interested in improving his/ her vocal and speaking techniques.“ Marcus Scheurren, Politician (Brussels, Belgium)
My classes will introduce you to the beauty of flowing sequences and how to connect you breath with your movements. I will focus on energizing your body through core strenghth and dynamic flows or more grounding standing series. Explore your body through movement in a light and playful way and improve your flexibility while learning how to use your breath in a healing way. I'm offering private yoga sessions suitable for one person or small groups. Prices for small groups can be discussed. What I like about teaching: I'm interested in encouraging people to use their breath in an empowering and healing way. Further to that I like the combination of flowing movements and the cultivation of groundedness both with deep Ujjayi Breath. Through hands-on assists I like to support my students to get a deeper sensation of the pose and experience the borders of their bodies. In my classes I like to hold space for my students to experiment, discover their strength and to overcome fears.

Vocal technique for all types of modern singing, pop, swing and jazz singing lessons, vocal coach, voice work.
Do you want to know the register of your voice? Can you sing the higher notes without hurting your voice? Learn how to do pass marks? Getting to have a powerful but also agile voice? I am a songwriter, pop and jazz singer and voice teacher with 20 years of experience in music. I offer singing lessons at all levels. My classes focus on the development of bodily, muscular and vocal awareness which helps to perceive and consider our body as a musical instrument. My teaching method is the result of the synthesis of my experience as a singer and the many and diverse courses of study followed. The lesson is structured in two parts: the first half devoted to vocal technique, the second half to the musical repertoire and the learning of musical language (jazz or pop or other genre). The vocal technique that I propose is a basic technique for all types of modern singing: from postural education to the care of breathing, from the use of the abdominal muscles, to the emission of air up to the cavities of resonance. We will work on the sound, on the extension of the voice, on the high and low notes, on the passage of register, on the control, on the power and the agility. From a repertoire point of view, the course will be modeled on the needs or interests of the student, with an eye to the right attitude to hold while you sing and you are on a stage. I can prepare the student for the entrance exam to the conservatory and any form of audition. If the student wishes, I can give him notions of harmony and reading music.

Jean-Philippe
Tout chanter !
A pioneering and innovative method of singing practice created in Denmark by Cathrine Sadolin twenty years ago, adopted by thousands of amateur and professional singers around the world. First, you have the possibility of increasing your comfort by applying the 3 basic principles for a healthy voice: Support, Twang and opening of the mouth. Then, it is a question of choosing the character of sound that you want to produce, by modifying the adjustment (the shape) which you give to your vocal tract (zone of the larynx, the mouth and the lips), one speaks then the mode in which you sing. -There is the Neutral mode which refers to soft sounds. -The Curbing mode whose sounds are a little louder and restrained. -Overdrive mode for loud and powerful sounds. -And finally the Edge mode for loud and sharp sounds. Anyone can use the 4 modes and switch between them. When you are in control and know the limitations, advantages and disadvantages of each of these modes, you will in fact be able to sing exactly what you want. you have access to several tools to acquire these new skills and this in-depth understanding of your voice. Before committing yourself, I would like you to think about your motivation, whether you are a beginner, an amateur or a professional, I work exclusively with people who are involved in their learning process.
