About Me

I started to sing even before being able to walk (at least my mom tells so) and the confidence of making singing my profession grew stronger year in year out. Jazz came into my life with the recordings of Sarah Vaughan, Bill Evans, and John Coltrane, and since that moment I realized that I want to devote my life to music. In jazz, I was attracted by the freedom of self-expression and its diversity. Wanting to know the depth of this musical language, I started to discover piano playing and jazz improvisation, taking Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Barry Harris, and others as a benchmark for me. Now I would want to share my knowledge which I got through years of experience and theory with other people who are as fond of music as I am. During the lesson, we will dive into the basics of rhythm, harmony, and improvisation and later will elaborate our skills according to these topics trying to find a way of expressing ourselves through the sound.

Learning the basics of classical singing technique
This class is suitable for anyone wishing to learn about the voice. I teach people that already sing and want to develop further their technique and repertoire but also people who have never sang before and who want to learn how to use their voice for the first time. I am a very passionate teacher who enjoys finding the right tools to make each person enjoy more their singing. We will focus a lot on connecting the voice with the breath and the body and on releasing tension from all the muscles that work together to create the sound. You might think that you will have to sing all kinds of high opera aria's during this class. Don't worry, this is not true of course! You can sing any music you like, including other music styles. You will learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but this will help you develop your voice for any kind of genre. You are very welcome to do a try-out lesson. During this lesson we can experiment with all kind of easygoing exercises and you can see if my way of teaching is what you are looking for and what you feel comfortable with!

Mariela
Classical & Pop Singing, Music reading and Music History
Hello all! I am a Mexican Musicologist and singer based in Amsterdam. I have been teaching for almost 7 years to different age ranges. //During the Singing lessons you will learn how to breathe and use the 'right' muscles for singing, voice exercises, repertoire and how to improve your music ear, it is basically a relaxing therapy, trust me. We will find together and based on your taste what songs you would like to work on! // The Music Theory lessons are for the ones who want to learn how to read music scores, no matter your level for sure I can keep challenging you with exercises and funny dynamics. Please be patient, to learn music language takes time... //In Music History I specialize in Classical repertoire, so why is Beethoven so good? Why is Mozart so famous around the world? what should you 'listen' when you listen academic music? Adding to this I also compare the music development with other arts and movements, so bring enough paper and pens for this lesson!
