    Singing Lessons and Basic Music Theory for All Ages and Level

    Exploring Your Singing Voice!!!

    It is my belief that anyone can sing as the body is built to speak and sing. So if you or your child loves to sing, it is never too late nor too early to learn one's self-expression through singing.

    I work with people of all ages from beginners, hobbyists, the curious, and to everyone in between who yearns to explore their singing voices.

    Lessons are tailored for each individual depending on their level and goals for singing.

    My lessons cover Vocal Function/Technique, Basic Music Theory, and learning and performing a song.

    The Vocal Technique I teach is grounded in the principles of Functional Singing and Somatic Voicework ™ The LoVetri Method. Vocal technique which covers Posture, Breathing, Body and Vocal Warm-ups, and Vocal Exercises prepares the body to sing freely, effortlessly, and powerfully. It facilitates awareness of mind, body, and breath connection which promotes freedom of expression and brings forth the joy of singing

    About Me

    Hello, I am Jean and I am a New Year City based singer and vocal teacher. I love singing as well as teaching others how to sing. It is my belief that since the body is designed to speak and sing, basically, everybody can learn to sing. Like any instruments, for singers the body is the instrument, one must learn how to use one's body to sing. I enjoy teaching all ages but particularly children starting from ages 7 and above, as well as adults and seniors that have always wanted to explore their singing voices. Singing is a wonderful way to connect with ourselves, improve our expression, and explore our creativity - in short, it is fun and good for our body and soul. Come sing with me!

    Clarinet Lessons for Students of All Ages and Abilities
    I am a compassionate and enthusiastic teacher dedicated to helping my students reach for the stars! One of my defining characteristics is my genuine interest in the longterm happiness and progression of my students. I am committed to providing students with a safe and positive environment where they feel supported throughout their musical journeys. I absolutely love finding ways in which I can personalize my lessons to best fit each student. Music education is not one size fits all and I want to honor the different ways students learn. I gain so much happiness knowing that my lessons fit the needs of my students. I am dedicated to nurturing a love for music in each student. I aim to positively enhance the student's strength, dexterity, and technique while building a lasting interest in music. In early lessons, I focus on developing an understanding of the student's goals and personal interests. I guide students to create sustainable practice routines, reinforcing the importance of discipline, responsibility and hard work. I emphasize building a strong foundation early on so that future musical progress is always supported by a strong core of musical knowledge. Typical lessons involve scales, sight reading, and a piece that the student chooses. My goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

    Aleksandra
    Classes of singing jazz, pop and all other kinds of modern music in Copenhagen
    Aleksandra is a trained singer, singing teacher and choir conductor from the Academy of Music in Gdansk and Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya in Barcelona. She took to the stage in her childhood and has been teaching music for the last 6 years. For several years she was a chorister of the prestigious Polish National Youth Choir and leader of Vocal Quintet Solifonia. Currently, she is a choir conductor and the founder of CHOIR CLUB in Korskolen. What can you expect from her teaching? She believes that singing can be passion, a communication tool, a means of therapy and so much more: more than you can imagine! In her classes, you will learn key vocal techniques as well as learning to understand your voice. You will discover the deeper meanings of the songs you sing as you seek to express them to the world. As she is working towards becoming an Accredited Teacher of IVTOM (International Voice Teachers of Mix) she focuses on delivering teaching based on the Mix principles: by mixing the chest and head voice you receive the full benefits of “both voices”: the natural and powerful sound of the chest voice, and the beauty and range of the head voice. As a singer learns to sing using both of these resonances and trains the vocal folds to stay together, it is possible to vocalize smoothly and evenly from one register to the next. The relationship of the two elements working together will create an even, smooth vocalization and, as a result, eliminates the “breaks” in the voice. She has a good knowledge of playing the piano, so you can sing along to her accompaniment or accompany yourself under her supervision. What does the first lesson include? You’ll talk about: - your background and musical experience - all the circumstances that can influence your sound production - your needs, expectations and plans You also find out: - what your bad habits are - how you can start your singing technique - what kind of exercises will help you best achieve your singing goals Who is welcome? - Children (8+), adolescents and adults - Singers of all kinds of popular music - Students who want to learn hearing / rhythm theory - Individuals, groups and families
