About Me

My love of music started very early on and my school and student years were full of singing and performing, especially as a member of youth choir "Iuventus Cantat" which was a sort of a visa for us, in the time of sanctions in the country where I lived.
In 2001 I decided to form a children's choir in the village where I lived, out of the children who never sang before. Next year this choir won the first prize at national choir competition. That's how it all started.

I've been leading children's, youth and adult's vocal groups and summer musical camp workshops for 16 years, in behalf of Music Society "Musica Viva" (which I cooked up :) ). "Musica Viva" led me to many places, and to even more areas of musical exploration, which is, for sure, very eclectic, as is the repertoire of the ensemble: Byzanth chants, renaissance, Bach, gospel, Pagan (Wiccan) chants, Sami Yoik, Dalmatian klapa songs, Balkan songs, Vivaldi, Hebrew songs, contemporary composers, pop songs arrangements...
I've been trained with many regarded voice and choral teachers including Ragnar Rasmussen, Darinka Matic Marovic (conductors), Aleksandar Vujic (composer), Baldo Mikulic (Werbeck singing method), Anita Roy (Indian Vedic songs), Silvia Minea (solo singing teacher).

Past projects also include singing therapy programs for children and adults with special needs, children in hospital units, as well as inclusive "Open Heart Choir".
I greatly enjoy directing summer camp youth choir and orchestra every year in Sombor: in July 2017 we prepared and performed Vivaldi's Gloria in D major!

When we come together in song, we are all equal.

Since I experienced the healing power of singing together, I love to share that experience. In performance, I enjoy combining all the segments of what I do, taking the audience on a creative journey. This all led me to the real Shamanic Journey workshop with shamans Jonathan Horwitz and Zara Waldebeck, where I have encountered with wild, uncurbed group singing and dancing.

I play a variety of instruments: piano (classical and pop), recorder, guitar (as an accompaniment), djembe and didgeridoo.
I practice Irish dance, yoga and meditation daily.
I yearly raise a diverse vegetable garden.

I give singing classes for beginners and intermediate level singers and all who would love to try to meet their own naked voice.

If you haven't done it already - enrich your life with singing!

Great working with Marita!
Marita is a very dedicated, patient and encouraging teacher who creates a safe and welcoming environment, where one feels comfortable and empowered to sing. Marita has an excellent knowledge of a variety of vocal styles and techniques and she tailors her lessons around your particular needs and interests. Her explanations are great and her teaching approach is creative and effective. She is warm, approachable, creative, prepared and experienced. I would recommend Marita to anyone who is interested in improving their singing skills.
Singing is your birthright! If you want to sing classical, world, pop, or other genres of music, or just to explore potentials of your voice - welcome. No age limits. You will learn vocal warm-ups, as well as exercises from other methods, to improve your vocal capabilities and your overall health. I'm creating methods individually - something that will work for you. Enrich your life with singing. Give yourself some good time! You can choose your program, or we can do it together.
Provide your children with opportunity to sing daily some suitable children’s songs. Early music lessons are proven to be beneficial in numerous ways, but especially for children with attention and behavioral problems. If you are a new parent, there’s no better way to connect with and soothe your baby than to sing gentle lullabies from different parts of the world and cultural heritage.

Danny
SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please Everybody generally consists of chords and lines of text. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hit or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you play 'what' guitar or piano, then you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antenna 's are always open :-) and for some it's a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and 2 sixes lines - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can get strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all, I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to write my science about songs, share it with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book with me for an hour. Then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

I then wanted to improve my vocal technique and it was through the vocal programs of Brett Manning (Singing Success) and the advice of his associates that I could improve my voice considerably.

Zara
Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music, Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing. I am currently an opera singer working with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques, but I also share my knowledge about music history and theory when they need. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and music presentation, alongside with basic techniques. Since I grow up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I can also speak some simple German. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

Singing lessons with certified teacher. Improve breaks, range and power. BEE VOCAL
Feeling like you're not using the full potential of your voice? I'm a certified voice teacher and I can help you with that. I am part of a worldwide voice community, The Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA) and I am regularly receiving training and being tested to be the best singing teacher I can be for you. Some of the teachers in this community I am part of, teach big names of the music industry. I have learnt directly from them. That means that when we have a lesson, you will be getting the same training as stars like Brandon Flowers (The Killers), Seal, Dan Reynolds (Imagine Dragons), Barbara Streisand, Michael Jackson, Brendon Urie (Panic! at the disco) many broadway artists and singers from all possible music styles have learnt with. In our lessons I will analyze your voice, define a goal for the lesson and trace a plan to achieve that goal. Then we will do vocal exercises that work almost like going to the gym, but for the muscles inside your larynx. Finally we will go through song application, and since I am also a singer/songwriter with a career of more than 10 years, I can help you with interpretation and stylistic choices. I want to help you start loving all aspects of your own voice. Working with what you have and improving what you can improve, never forgetting the most important thing which is to enjoy the experience of singing. obs: for kids under the age of 12, the lesson is less about learning the technique and more about getting familiar with music, with your voice, but in a fun and relaxing way.

Jules
Vocal technical coaching (all styles) and singing (lyrical) on Lausanne and its surroundings
How to learn to sing? To sing just and well? To answer these complex questions, I was interested in phonatory mechanisms, with speech therapists and phoniatres, I studied singing with a dozen singing teachers, I participated in many Masterclasses and trained myself in different institutions: first at the conservatories of Vaulx-en-Velin and Mâcon, then at the Regional Conservatory of Montpellier, and finally at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Lausanne where I am currently studying with Leontina Vaduva. It is first of all through passion that I want to convey what I have learned. This is felt, according to the words of my students, in my way of teaching which reconciles the rigor of art and the pleasure of singing. In my pedagogical approach, I clearly separate the vocal technique and the art of singing, that is to say the management of an objective mechanism, physical and physiological, of sound production (articulation of the language, management of the pressures subglottic and supra-glottic to achieve a pneumo-phono-resonantial balance), and the shaping of this sound to achieve musical beauty (make a beautiful "legato" line, tempo variations, nuances, etc.). ). When I start with a new student, I first make a diagnosis to determine the range of the voice, the level of resonantial passages, and check the health of the larynx (tonicity, endurance, flexibility). The typical course begins with vocal technique exercises and ends with the work of a musical piece. I adapt my course according to the needs of each one (for example, I can start with a Feldenkreis or Alexander technique exercise, relaxation, breath, or a physical warm-up), but also according to the desires and tastes of the student (the technical part will last more or less long). Considering that the stage is important for personal fulfillment and to set goals in music, I propose to my students to participate in the auditions and group lessons of the music school where I work in Lutry.
