Private singing coach - focus on technique and song interpretation

I help you in finding confidence in singing by focussing not only on the technique of singing but also on the ´story` you are telling with the song.
Being experienced in both musical theatre and acting, I love combining these two when helping you achieve your goals.
I am an all-round teacher, but most of my training is in musical theatre.
I love to help you with specific questions (like: how to gain the perfect posture for singing) or work on songs and tackeling obstacles we’ll come across while singing. Having fun and gaining confidence will allways be the centre of our focus.

About Me

NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL OCT 2020

Hi, I`m Sietse. I`m from the Netherlands and have been living in Belgium for over 5 years now.
Besides working as an actress, singer and theatremaker, I really enjoy teaching! I especially enjoy working as a personal coach together to reach you goals.
For me teaching is not a side-job beside my artistic carreer (nor it is the other way around) I always strife to combine the two, since, in my experience, they inspire each other immensly.
As a teacher I`m patient, friendly and I love to add some humor to the classes. However, I`m very ambitious and driven. Furthermore: creating a safe environment is fundamental.

Education

Bachelor in Music (musical theatre - Conservatory of Haarlem)
Bachelor in Drama (LUCA School of Arts)
Master in Drama (LUCA School of Arts)
Different workshops and courses (like EVTS)

Experience / Qualifications

8 years of teaching experience (acting and singing classes) for both groups as well as individual coaching. Both children and adults.

Reviews (2)

Ik had mijn eerste les bij Sietse en ik leerde meteen enorm veel bij. Sietse hecht veel belang aan gezond gebruik van je stem en ze is enthousiast en energiek. Daarnaast past haar visie op zingen perfect bij me: kruip in je lijf, je gevoel en het verhaal dat je wilt brengen. Ik kijk al uit naar de volgende lessen!
Easy contact, Sietse is professionnal and a pleasure to work with.
As a writer (mainly playwriting, but also songs, columns and essays) I'm very interested in helping you either to start writing, or to better your writing. We'll work mostly by practicing and discussing your work. If you prefer to zoom in on theoretics, I'm happy to guide you in that as well. I'm a professional playwriter and dramaturg (and studied at LUCA School of Arts with Nico Boon, Freek Mariën and Nathan Vecht). I previously taught playwriting in different groups (CREA, Buitenkunst) and work as a scriptadvisor for professional theatre makers. Besides that, I often help people in writing resumes, papers and thesis papers.
I specialize in coaching individuals in how to present themselves on stage or before a group. My goal is to focus on your own specific goals and help you develop your skills. Whether you are a amateur actor, a singer or you need to speak in public for work, I can help you better yourself and gain confidence! We work on different levels: analyzing the text, performing, body and voice. I have a background in singing and acting and have been working as a teacher, coach and director for 8 years.

Singing lessons for young and old, at your own pace (classical and other styles)
Do you like to sing and want to develop your voice? Great, because singing is great fun and healthy! During my lessons we will explore the possibilities of your voice together. The development of a healthy, natural voice and pleasure are central. That is why the lessons are fully adapted to your qualities, taste and pace. Together we work on a solid singing technique, breathing, articulation, interpretation, musicality and voice hygiene. We explore the classical singing repertoire and look for music that fits your voice. You can also make a trip to other genres (jazz, pop, musical, etc.) You learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but with a good singing technique you can handle a lot of styles! Why you should come to class: - You have always wanted to learn to sing, with or without a specific goal in mind - You are curious about the possibilities for (further) developing your voice - You are looking for a creative outlet - You suffer from a often tired speaking voice and want to make it stronger - You sing in a choir and you want to work on your singing technique or you need some extra help while studying - ... Whatever your motivation, you are always welcome! Do you have questions or doubts about whether singing is something for you? Do not hesitate to contact me.

Badass Intensive Acting Acting Course for Film & TV - For all levels & ages
Sinterklaas has just passed and the following holidays are already announced. Because we are all used to dampening our festive cheer because of the corona measures, we have decided to give you all a Christmas present. That is why, if you register by December 31, 2020 at the latest, you will still receive a welcome package of the aloe vera products from LR and, moreover, we have even more big new ones: in the period from January to March 2020 we will record a real web series with all students who would like to participate: Four and a Living Room. More about that below. Promo until December 31: Contact us for the correct prices Badass Intensive Acting studios is one of the only organizations in the Benelux that provides acting lessons in front of the camera. All experience levels and ages are welcome. More info * For all possible experience levels * All major acting techniques (Adler, Chekhov, Hagen, Practical Aesthetics, Stanislavski, Strasberg, proprietary REPEAT and Hollywood Actor's Showcase unique approach) * Emphasis on self-development and modeling your own approach * Acting for film and TV + improv * Support and help with resumes, castings, networks, showcases, showreels and more About our partnership with Hollywood Hollywood Actor's Showcase and Richie's Acting Workshop is one of the best-known, most influential acting schools in the United States. After 30 years of training for aspiring actors and Hollywood stars (including Scarlett Johansson and Drew Barrymore), she teamed up with Belgium's Badass Intensive Acting Studios last year to expand European. The goal is simple: to bring the authentic energy of Hollywood to Europe, so that even people who cannot afford to move to America themselves can receive the same education. There are not many acting courses that focus on acting in front of the camera. After all, most schools teach you — implicitly or explicitly — theater techniques and while the art of acting itself remains central, it should be clear that acting for TV and film requires slightly different skills, as it usually involves subtler, smaller expressions and movements. . Film connoisseurs therefore know that the camera tends to notice the smallest emotion. The most minuscule micro-expressions, the least obvious 'subtext' and the most layered interpretations are visible on both the large and the small screen. In Belgium, Badass PR's Intensive Acting Courses have long been one of the few acting classes that deal exclusively with acting in front of the camera, supplemented with improvisation. During the lessons, all the important acting techniques are discussed, including those of Adler, Chekhov, Hagen, Meisner, Practical Aesthetics, Stanislavski and Strasberg, but the goal remains the same: to forget technique in a sense and to act as naturally as you breathe. Badass Intensive Acting Studios' own technology, REPEAT, has also been developed for this. Ever since author / coach / editor / PR consultant Dirk started teaching acting classes more than 10 years ago, he has tried to offer his students as many opportunities as he could. That went by trial and error: sometimes he failed to get something off the ground, at other times he succeeded in his objectives. Those of his students range from developing more self-confidence to becoming more sociable and getting more opportunities to star in a play, a movie or a TV series. One of the best decisions: partnering with the Hollywood Actors' Studios of Larry, Bobbie and Richie Chance - three of the most famous acting coaches in the film world. Badass Intensive Acting has been organizing workshops in Los Angeles and Las Vegas for years now to enable its students to learn from the most prestigious instructors, talent agents and casting directors that Los Angeles has on offer. For example, the collaboration with Hollywood Actor's Showcase and Richie's Acting workshop has already paid off. Of course it depends on many factors whether you can achieve success as an actor — a great deal of luck and a lot of dedication are usually very important — but the students at the Chances can certainly say that they are as prepared as they can be. From improv lessons to working with scripts and intensely emotional lessons, the courses cover the entire spectrum of what the film world needs. Since August 2019, Badass Intensive Acting Studios and Hollywood Actor's Showcase in Belgium have been flying under a banner. In Belgium, the Chances now work exclusively with Badass Intensive Acting Studios (now 'Powered by Hollywood Actor's Showcase'). The participating students not only receive a discount on the international workshops, but can also enjoy many other benefits. With the 20-session card you can participate in our online course whenever you want. This is done via Zoom. You can follow on any mobile medium or on your computer. You don't need special software Don't forget that you can collect points with an UiTPAS! Early bird discounts are also available for all our workshops. So be quick. Promotion The acting course is continuous. So you can choose which lessons you participate in and which you do not. Contact us for the correct prices

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

Deborah
Group lesson Singing Pregnant: Group Singing during pregnancy. Online possible too.
Singing gives relaxation; the exercises used in singing technique such as low breathing and relaxation exercises are also pleasant and useful when you are pregnant. Furthermore, research has shown that the unborn child already responds to music. For example, music that is often repeated during pregnancy provokes a calming response when the baby is born. Also the voice of the mother is recognized immediately after birth. Deborah would therefore like to start with a singing group for pregnant women. Besides the exercises, we sing canons, polyphonic music and lullabies in different languages ​​and styles.
