Vocal classes (Jazz, modern) in Rotterdam: improve your singing skills, find your true voice!
Does music have a special place in your heart? Then let's begin from there! My mission is to make you find your true voice, discover your own style and the things that make you enthusiastic. With my lessons, I can help you to experience the joy of feeling through singing. We are going to explore the possibilities of the voice, learn breathing and vocal techniques that will make you improve your sound, play with improvisation and explore the fields of interpretation and communication with an audience. I am currently graduating at Codarts, attending a Master in jazz vocals and jazz composition. If you have music experience behind you, I can coach you to deepen the knowledge of your voice, your improvisation skills, or to write your own music. I'm a trained piano player and I can play guitar, so I usually accompain my students: this will make you experience the interaction with a musician (or with another musician, if you can also play). So... are you ready? The first thing that I am going to ask you is: what is it that you like the most? This will be our starting point.

Vocal Lessons in Rotterdam or Den Haag / BA Jazz Music (Vocals) / MA Music Therapy / Orff Schulwerk Approach for Children
Hello! My name is Karolina and I am a professional singer, as well as an upcoming music therapist. I studied Jazz Music at Prins Claus Conservatorium in Groningen and at the moment I am completing my Master studies in Music Therapy at the ArtEZ Conservatorium in Enschede, The Netherlands. I also hold a degree of the Orff Approach (Orff Schulwerk), a developmental approach used in music education, which combines music, movement, and speech and it is a great approach for children 4-8 years old. I specialize in jazz and Brazilian repertoire, but I also teach Greek folk singing. The lessons are designed according to the needs of each student. Some of the focusing areas are listed below: 1. Vocal Technique: We focus on vocal technique elements such as breath control, vocal range, the use of all registers, and timbres of your voice. The goal is to sing effortlessly. With the vocal technique, you will get the chance to explore your voice and build confidence in your voice. 2. Repertoire: Together we can build your repertoire step by step and focus on the phrasing of each style. You will choose the repertoire you like and you can always ask for advice in case you want to explore new musical styles. A great time of enjoyment during classes where you will be singing your heart out! 3. Improvisation: Vocal improvisation is a great way to explore the voice and also express your feelings. It will also boost your creativity and musicality. Specific exercises can also guide you through this process step by step and in that way we will explore vocal improvisation. FOR CHILDREN (4-8 years old): I am specialized in music education for children 4-8 years old. Using the Orff Approach children will have a great creative time for themselves where they learn music by using their whole body. Experiencing and learning music through playing! Suggested Duration for Lessons for Children: 30-45min depending on the age. I am looking forward to starting an inspiring musical journey with you! Karolina
Vocal and Music Lessons/ Free the voice / Enjoy Singing
Two worlds I was born within two worlds, the East and the West; the folklore music of central Greece and the classical one. A major factor in the formation of my musicality comes from the tight relation of my family with Greek traditional music. However, music of any kind was always welcome at my home. Inspired by my father who is also a singer, I got involved in choir singing and started piano lessons. Opting for singing was a choice that gave me the freedom to express my mind. R’n’B & Latin At my first piano lessons, I realised how music is put on paper and the importance of it. At about the same time I started singing in the school choir of my secondary school and I kept being between the lead voices of the high school choir. That was the point where I practiced the different voice harmonies and got over my teenage reluctance by singing in front of the public. At the sweet age of 14, I developed a special interest in R’n’B and soul music. Later on, I got involved in the pop and rock scene but suddenly, Latin jazz music attracted my interest. One of the reasons I fell in love with Latin music is because I feel that each emotion is manifested at its maximum glory. Latin music is a mixture of cultures and backgrounds; it is the fusion of European harmony brought to the colonies with African rhythms like Cuban music was brought to New York. Singing as a vocal discovery I consider myself a people’s person. When teaching I have the need to welcome the student into a safe environment of acceptance where music can happen. In order for the student to let go of personal timidness, mutual trust comes with time yet is necessary. I prioritise my students’ needs; teach them the technical aspects they should know so as to develop a healthy instrument but also coach them so that they develop their taste in music. Because I have been singing various styles through my career, I believe I am quite a chameleon of styles (Latin, Brazilian, Jazz, Pop, Greek). In my lessons I find helpful to use some mini percussion so that the singer can establish an internal metronome. I am very supportive with each individuals’ needs and goals, that is why I always make a personal profile of my students and their progress and also ask them to design their personal dream board. All in all, I always use a combo of methods and adapt at the personal needs of the student. Singing for me is always a vocal discovery and this is what I would like to help my students achieve. The essential idea is to develop a healthy instrument with which you can express through the good and bad days. I have been studying with different teachers around the Netherlands (Codarts alumni) and Greece and during this time I have realised that learning can happen anywhere and anytime.
Vocal and music theory lessons - breathing - posture
We will find your needs together and start working from that point. You can come with no experience at all and I will help you to explore and develop your voice. It's also not important if you cannot read music, I can help you with that as well. If you are already a singer, we will work in order to refine your technique. Voice, breathing, and posture are connected and fundamental for a healthy technique so we will also work on that while we focus on your voice. Singing can be very personal and confronting but do not fear, we work in a safe environment. Let yourself be surprised with what you can achieve!! The lesson can be in English, Spanish, Portuguese, or Italian.
Improve your singing in this Quarantine! (online: skype, zoom, or another telecommunication)
Did you always wanted to improve your singing but you never had the time? If you're up for some creativity in this Quarantine weeks, I offer you singing classes through Skype. I suggest to work on 3 main aspects, which are divided into LEI (Learning, Exploring, Interpret + info below): - REPERTOIRE (Learning): Choose a song you love - TECHNIQUE (Exploring): Let's discover all you can do with your own instrument, your voice. I will give you some techniques to extend the possibilities in your Voice ('Embodied Voice', + info below) - INTERPRETATION (Interpret): there are infinite ways to transmit a song! More ways than humans on earth, because each one of us can do many interpretations of one single song. We will explore the different ways to learn a song. Singing is the oldest instrument we have, people sang while working, in gatherings, to their loved ones... but now days singing make people shy, make them lose confidence in their voice. That's why I want to offer some concrete tools that can help you to clearly understand what you feel when you sing and find the way in what you want to sing. I want that it feels good!! Singing cannot be suffering (like so many other things ... ) METHOD: Embodied Voice The voice, our instrument, is not only the vocal cords in our throat, but it is also your whole body and the energy you carry. If you move your arm while you're singing it will affect the sound, but also any emotion you feel. Let's embody your voice by singing while connecting: Emotion, Body, Mind, and Guts. MY OWN TRACK: Education: I am graduating this year on Jazz Vocals in Arnhem Artez Institute of Arts and Conservatory Liceu, Barcelona I have done several Feldenkrais courses with Ohad Natchmani which helped me to build up my own technique. Artistic: I am a singer and violinist in The Escarteen Sisters, the duo I have with my Sister. Pedagog: I worked for 6 years in Tallers de Música, a music school in Barcelona. I have experience in teaching people of different ages. And I also did private lessons. I love to teach and have this exchange of knowledge and experiences with the student. I also learn a lot. I can adapt to the needs of the student. I am flexible with dates and schedules. Tell me your needs and I will try my best to guide you.

Piano and Singing tutor with 5 years experience and professional education
From my childhood I have been studying music and art: sang in choir and solo, played piano, painted, studied music history and literature, solfeggio. Later in college I have also learned choir conducting, had ensemble and choir singing lessons, cultural studies. During last year in university I had pedagogy practice at university and at private art school (where I worked as a music tutor before the war - piano, voice). I truly enjoyed working with students. They all were different age (8 - 40+ years old) and level. But all were very interesting and work was pleasant. My education was very various: my core subjects were conducting, choir, voice, piano. So it allowed me to work with children, teens and adults with quite wide range of interests and needs: some students needed/wanted to learn particular composition(s), sometimes pop songs arrangements, some were interested in “introduction” to the music, some wanted to renew skills they gained in their childhood and continue their journey to the music world. In addition I prepared presentations (which contained information about cultural and historical background and musical and character/art analysis). So after graduation from choir conducting faculty (which allowed me to deepen my knowledge in many important compatible branches) I concentrated on studying classical singing and piano, expanded my cultural studies and analysis knowledge, practiced solfeggio and harmony.

Singing Lessons for Beginner and Advanced Students
Deepening my knowledge of singing and passing on my skills to students are the things I love to do most and I have been teaching singing to beginners and professionals for many years now. I start from the basics of breathing, vocal warmup and anatomy of the phonatory organ, to reach a confident use of the vocal instrument, mastery of the technique, alongside body awareness. For set-out-artists, for those who want to go further into the technique and receive a guide in the artistic sector, I offer my professionalism in the study of the repertoire and performing techniques, introducing and deepening notions of pronunciation and diction for singers, understanding of the text, acting and executive techniques (applied to singing). Furthermore, my students have the opportunity to make professional recordings, to follow and document their artistic evolution (Self-recording technique lessons can be added). I have a bachelor's degree in classical singing from Conservatorio di Musica “F. Morlacchi” (Perugia, Italy) and I can speak English and Italian in the lessons. I am available both online and in person, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
