Professional mezzosoprano offers singing lesson to children and adults!

Hello,

I’m Elena, I’m Italian and I’m an opera singer :)
I’ve been training children and teens for 6 years, especially helping them with auditions and tests. I’ve been singing in theaters almost all my life since I started when I was just 8; nowadays I work as a professional mezzosoprano all around the world both in educational projects for kids and children and in big productions.
I like teaching because I can share my experience with somebody that needs it and I always get to learn something from my pupils too: I swear teaching makes me a better singer.

I give lessons for any kind of purpose:
- learning music
- improving musicality
- preparing an audition
- finding our own voice
- overcoming insecurity

Everybody is different, so everybody has its own path to go through; I cater my lessons to the pupil’s needs, and even if the method is always classical, I make sure that the hour of lesson is a fun moment as well as a learning experience.
Music is life and life is fun!

If what you have read interests you, I’m here to answer all your questions, so don’t be afraid: write me and I’ll see how I can help you!

During the trial lesson, we will take the time to get to know each other better, assess levels and goals, and start to work on them already.

I can’t wait to meet you!

Extra information

In this particular time of our lives, I give lessons online through different platforms (I.e.FaceTime, zoom, Skype,...) depending on pupil’s preference.

In person classes are available when in white zone, presenting a green certificate, on Monday and Thursday.

About Me

I teach voice both to adults and to children basing my method on my classical training and practical experience as a child, singing in opera houses. But I would like to point out that as far as teaching to children goes, I don’t like to push them over the natural limit of the human voice. I like to always be sure that the path I’m guiding my pupils on is first of all a healthy one!
So what you can expect from my classes is a solid ground on how the body works, how to breathe correctly, and a good amount of vocalises and exercises. On top of that of course, we end up singing something! Fun isn’t forgotten ;)

She took part in several masterclasses with Maestri Bonfadelli, Cuberli, D’Intino, Lanzillotta, Ligorio, Lowe, Luisi, Mameli, Mianiti, Pittaluga, Prina, Santoro, Sicca and Taddia.

From 2003 to 2013 she has been a member of the children choir of La Scala Theater, under Bruno Casoni and Alfonso Caiani’s direction, taking part in every opera in which the children were required, and performing in a number of concerts with Filarmonica Orchestra of La Scala Theater, “Orchestra dei Pomeriggi Musicali”, RAI National Symphony Orchestra, and Symphony Orchestra of Milan “Giuseppe Verdi”. In 2005 she got her first solo role at La Scala in Tannhäuser under the baton of Jeffrey Tate. In the following years, she performed as a soloist in several operas, such as Macbeth (2008), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2009), Tannhäuser (2010), Die Zauberflöte (2011), Tosca (2011 and 2012) and Peter Grimes (2012), working with Kazushi Ono, Sir Andrew Davis, Zubin Mehta, Roland Böer, Omer Meir Wellber, Nicola Luisotti and Robin Ticciati.

In the meantime, she worked with Carlo Tenan for MITO Festival, and with Roberto Abbado in Bologna’s Opera House.

In 2015 she made her debut in the role of Lola in Cavalleria Rusticana at Teatro Filodrammatici (Milan) working with the emergent director Gianmaria Aliverta, and performed as the Contadina in Le nozze di Figaro at the Teatro Sociale di Como.
During 2016 she sang Mrs Baggot in The Little Sweep by Benjamin Britten for the Accademia Teatro alla Scala, and made her debut as Cherubino for the OperaStudio project of the Conservatoire of Milan.

For the most part of 2017 she was undertaken to a tour through Italy produced by AsLiCo singing Rosina once again. Moreover, she was Venere in Il ballo delle Ingrate, played at the Conservatoire “Verdi” in Milan for the “450Monteverdi” project. 2018 has been an incredible year, singing in many productions: Flora in La traviata directed by Roberto Catalano, Modestina in Il Viaggio a Reims with Michele Spotti and Carmen -title role- in AsLiCo’s productions; she has also tackled the roles of Angelina (La Cenerentola) and la Ciesca (Gianni Schicchi) both under Gianmaria Aliverta’s direction. Moreover she took part in the first edition of the Antigua Opera Society, the first operatic festival set to take place in Antigua and Barbuda in order to promote music and culture as powerful educational instruments for the children of the country. The show was very successful, leading to a 2019 comeback, which has just happened.
In the last months she has been Carmen once again for the revival of La tragédie de Carmen under Aliverta’s direction and she has sung in “Monteverdi Festival 2019” (Teatro Ponchielli, Cremona) after a round of work with both Ottavio Dantone and Delphine Galou.

Singing lessons: Vocal technique oriented to diferrent styles. (Opera, Jazz, Pop, Rock) Breath managment, body consciousness, placement.
I´m a profesional Opera Singer, who is also giving lessons in vocal technique since 7 years. This class is for begginers and intermedium level singers who want to improve the manage of their voices. The class starts with different vocalizations and breathing exercises to warm the body and start to understand how the voice works. Then we start to sing in order to apply the new concepts to different songs. The class its adaptable to every pupil, because everyone has their one vocal history, which means, they have different problem, which need differents aproaches.

Emma
Learn to Sing with a Qualified Opera Singer with 6+ years teaching & professional performance experience.
Whether you're a beginner who just wants a confidence boost, or someone with a music background who wants to take your technique up a notch, I'd be so happy to make music with you! The principles of music-based vocal & breath work have such power, & will not only make you feel more oxygenated, but will bring out a strength of voice & character that you didn't know you possessed! I am/have been Peripatetic Vocal Coach at 2 Independent Girls High Schools, 2 Preparatory schools (one of which is all-boys), and teach several homeschoolers (one of whom lives in Zambia, and is online). I'm confident that I can give you the same sound pedagogical experience online that you would receive on site. My current online students live in China, Kyrgstan, New York, Zambia, Cape Town and Switzerland. Here's what one of my mature pupils from 2019 had to say: "I have always loved singing, but never had the confidence to follow through with my passion. As an adult it can be pretty daunting. I had a couple of lessons with Emma, & through her encouragement, patience & great teaching skills, my confidence grew .. She inspired me to believe in myself and my ability to sing, especially when I did not believe it myself. She is a tremendously positive, engaging & fun teacher, & I always came out of her lessons feeling better than I had walking in, & looking forward to the next lesson!" Others in 2022 said: "I now feel that I can sing well beyond 45mins, whereas previously with another coach, it was all that I could manage in a day! I'm also not afraid of high notes anymore, as I've been taught how to approach them healthily and safely." "I have been singing this song for a while, and haven't been able to sing those tops. In one lesson, you've shown me, as a tenor, how to do so - and comfortably!" Colleagues of mine at schools that I teach at have said of my lessons: "It is a privilege to listen to you teach." "I have never heard sounds like that coming from our department!" So what are you waiting for? Join me online, from a vocally safe and sunny home studio, & let's start from where you're at, make music, & have FUN doing it!

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!

Cécile
State graduate singing teacher from the Richard Cross School, offers personalized voice coaching lessons!
Singing lessons and vocal coaching online or at the singing teacher (M ° Gallieni Line 3). I have been a singing teacher at Cours Florent for 5 years, also a vocal coach on the Lion King show at Disneyland Paris and also more and more vocal coach in private lessons (pros or amateurs). State graduate (diploma of vocal trainer from the Richard Cross school). Trained in the Joe Estill Voice training method (Quebec), and I also took lessons from Nicole Falien, Julia Pelaez, Joy Kane and Christiane Legrand. Coach in French and English of various professional or amateur artists for more than ten years (all styles, from rap to R&B, from song to electronics and everything related to current music). My lessons are for everyone: singers and / or musicians, professional or amateur singer-songwriters, preparation for auditions / castings, coaching of groups in play, artists in the studio, all ages all styles welcome!;) Voice work in all current musical repertoires except lyrical. I accompany you on the piano, or we can work on your instruments, various accompaniments, karaoke. Rap welcome (I have more and more rappers / slammers, we do a lot of work on the flow, the projection, the setting up of the breaths, rhythmic settings, intelligibility of the text etc.) all that is easy to work on when you knows how and that we want to evolve! Being also a singer-songwriter and pianist, I can help you develop your compositions, your songs, place the tonic accents where needed, teach you how to accompany yourself on the piano itself :-) work on the interpretation of the songs of course. Prepare your studio sessions (and/or accompany you there if necessary), before your concerts, your rehearsals... Give you the tips to not get tired, and know how to repair your voice when you have pushed too much, and above all teach you how to project your voice without hurting yourself, etc. In short, to provide you with solid and essential foundations for singing healthily (without hurting yourself!) And freely !! For distance courses (if you prefer, I do it regularly, especially for two years, and also with my students abroad), as long as you have a computer, you're good to go (or at worst a smartphone)! In short I will tell you everything you need to know to free your voice! The difference between "vocal coaching" and "singing lessons" is that I take the singer or singer, the comedian, the actress, the rapper in the vocal state in which he/she arrives, and I pick him up and take him where he/she wants to go, with the repertoire you choose, which can be yours (songwriter), or the one you choose or that I can help you choose according to your range and your musical tastes of course. I do "with" you, with what you are, with what you bring to me as "raw material"! There is always something to improve, whatever your level at the start! :) It can also be just a moment for you, just for the pleasure of singing, whatever you want! Singing is life! Fluent English ;-)

Ziad
Oud & Oriental Arabic Singing Teacher in Mönchengladbach
Experienced Oud & Oriental singing teacher for over 6 years, Lebanese, living in Mönchengladbach. Studied for 8 years at the Lebanese National Conservatory. I was a teacher at Casa Beethoven academy in Lebanon and a private teacher in Lebanon. Played in an oriental orchestra "Loubnan Assalam" for more than 5 years as a concertmaster. My reason for moving to Germany was that I am currently finishing my studies at the University of Kamp Lintfort. Fluent in English, Couramment en français, ولغتي الأم هي اللغة العربية. Aber leider spreche Ich ein bisschen Deutsch. Oud is an oriental instrument, very beautiful and it has recently been used in new cultures in many countries other than the Far Eastern countries of the Middle East due to its soft and beautiful sound. It is not yet very popular in Germany and if you master this instrument you will encounter many demands and opportunities in the near future. If you are hungry to learn an oriental instrument, the Oud is a very good choice. If you are looking to play German music or any kind of music, the combination of Oud with other popular instruments is very beautiful and you can be one of the first who spread this beautiful culture in any kind of music. My recommendation for studying Oud is to start studying notes and how to read them, before playing songs. Most of the new students, usually ask me to study songs without reading notes. This method could work but it will take a long time for the student to understand the basics of the instrument and of music in general. But if you are dedicated and you work hard, we can take a good step in almost a year so that you can start playing easy songs. If you don't like music or you don't love the instrument, I do not recommend you learn it. "More about me" I met My lovely wife in the orchestra, she plays Cello as well. We love music. It is our passion. My hobbies are playing chess, diving, biking, and running. I had an e-commerce business in Lebanon, but unfortunately, after the economic crisis, we closed it, shut down the website, and moved to Germany. Social media channels are still available "TopArabica" I am a friendly person, I love teaching and seeing my students make good progress and play with me duets. It is best to meet in person but if you are away from my location, online lectures can also be provided. Leave me a message and I will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Group lesson Kindergarten music. Group Musiclessons for Children from 4-6 years. Online available too.
Music and movement go hand in hand for young children. In this course, toddlers are busy with music and movement. Simple instruments such as drums and rhythm sticks belong here, but also balls and scarves, for example. There is an appeal to the imagination, different types of music are listened to, and many are sung and danced. This course is actually the logical continuation of Music on lap lessons, but without parents. For

Egle
Opera singer offers lessons for Beginners and Professionals
My course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn to sing. This can be classical, jazz or pop singing. I teach online. I have students from all over the world - USA, India, Mexico, China, Germany, Romania, Italy, etc. Beginners, intermediate and professional singers who have technical difficulties will feel themselves comfortable during my lessons. For me, it is important that after each singing lesson the student feels he has made a little progress. I work with vocal exercises, correct and healthy breathing technique and posture for the first 20-30 minutes and then we move to the musical pieces - songs or arias. Repertoire will be chosen together with the student, paying a special attention to the sustainability and development of his/her voice. I put a special emphasis on expanding the voice range and interpretation of every piece.

Georgia
Singing with an italian soprano from classical opera singing to modern and pop.
My classes are different depending on your level and age. With children from 7 to 12 we start by doing easy vocalise and start training the ear with intonation, we then have fun singing your favourite songs. With teenagers I also start with some vocalises, a little more elaborate. Depending on the students capabilities we start establishing a comfortable range for them and then proceed to singing. For my older students ideally I divide our lesson into 2 sections. We work on respiration and how the diaphragm works. We do scales and arpeggios and work on intonation. We then proceed to singing and putting into practice our technique. Some students might need more technique before they actually sing, I like to take things slowly and make sure the student feels confident and comfortable singing. I teach children, teenagers and adults, from beginners to more advanced. A classical training enables you to sing in any kind of way, so don’t hesitate and let’s sing!

Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye

Olivia
Discover your voice with professional singer Olivia! (Classical, pop, musical theatre, opera!)
Are you curious about singing, but feel like you don’t know where to start? Do you already have some experience of singing and are curious about what your voice could achieve at its full potential? Do you feel shy about your voice and wish you could feel confident enough to sing in front of other people? I am Olivia, a professional opera singer who is passionate about teaching singers a healthy vocal technique in all styles of singing, and helping them to grow in confidence along the way. My teaching room is a safe space where students are free to experiment, make mistakes and discover everything about their voice with my full support! I have been teaching singing privately to pupils of all ages and levels for several years, as well as enjoying a busy performance career. I find that being a regular performer myself is very important when imparting knowledge and advice to my students because I want to teach you more than just the mechanics of singing - I want to guide you towards being an artist and expressing YOUR unique voice and personality. I work on vocal technique, drama and language, and have worked with children, teenagers, and adults - both those hoping to sing professionally and enthusiastic amateurs! Every lesson will include warmups and technical exercises as well as work on repertoire that we will choose together. I can teach in English, French or Italian. As for my performance experience: I began taking singing lessons at 13 years old after joining the school choir in secondary school in London, and adored the process of training my voice. In my teens, I performed in concerts as a soloist and also in a few musical theatre roles, most notably Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. I moved to Switzerland and trained as an opera singer at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève, and did a Specialised Masters (Soloist) at the Hochschule der Künste Bern. I have since gone on to perform with the opera houses of Geneva, Lausanne and Lucerne, the Opera House of Zrenjanin in Serbia, the Jeunesses Musicales Opera Studio (Croatia), London Grimeborn Festival, and have been a featured soloist at such concert venues as the Berlin Philharmonic, Salle Paderewski in Lausanne, the BFM in Geneva, the Cologne Philharmonic, and St Johns Smith Square in London. Most recently you may have seen me as Mrs P. in the Swiss première of Michael Nyman's 'The Man who mistook his Wife for a Hat' in Vevey, or if you've been enjoying the program 'Blob Opera' this year, you might be interested to know that I was one of the opera singers working on this project by recording hours of material for a machine to create an algorithm that recreating an opera singer's voice! Good singing is about solid and healthy vocal technique, a good feeling for music, self-expression and confidence! I would love to work with you to build all of these parts of yourself and to see where your voice takes you. If you have any questions, please do get in touch with me!

Opera Singing; Belcanto; Lyric Repertoire; Italian, Russian, French, German Pronounciation in singing.
Belcanto - Beautiful singing. Is an art that permits us to tell the story of the librettist and the composer in the finest view. I studied singing and working as an Opera singer 12 years ago with the best Maestros in the Italian school. I would love to share my experience of authentic opera sound, repertoire, pronunciation, and character of the role that you choose. No matter how old you are, or how much experience you have. You can try to approach the art of Opera!
