    Opera and classical singing lessons for all levels and ages
    I am a Swiss born opera singer who has graduated from the Royal College of Music in London. I am passionate about teaching and passing my knowledge onto people of all ages and levels who want to learn how to sing, read music and improve their skills. I always teach in a way that will be fun, enjoyable and comprehensible. I structure my lessons well in advance and before starting teaching a student, we work out what we are aiming for and then work towards it. I can help beginners/intermediate students in learning new pieces/songs; I can work on technique, repertoire and language coaching in French, Russian, Italian and German pronunciation. I am very kind but I do like to challenge my students and see them progress. I am very inventive and creative in my teaching and use lots of imagery that works for children as well as adults and beginners as well as advanced students.

    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
