    Pop, rock, jazz Singing Lessons and Vocal Coaching

    Have you always dreamed:

    of singing with freedom and resonance, with ease and flexibility?
    of belting out your favourite rock ballad and spellbinding the crowd?
    of having a huge range and expressive power that makes people’s jaws drop?

    I can help you free your voice and find your true sound through my holistic teaching approach.

    I will help you get back in touch with your breath and the freedom you once felt in your voice as a child.

    I will help with any relaxation, placement, strain issues you may have and extend your range and give you resonance and power.

    If you have any health issues that may affect your voice I can give you advice and guidance, special exercises , yoga routines etc - having suffered myself from GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) and a resulting small vocal node in the past, and having dealt with various health issues - despite which I have managed to still work as a singer!

    I can teach you to:

    - Improvise and write songs.
    - Develop your expression.
    - Develop your technique without losing your own unique sound.
    - Extend your range to at least 3 octaves (sometimes even 4!)
    - Breath control and control of your entire range.
    - Sing in a variety of techniques and styles- become a versatile singer!
    - Basic guitar/keyboard skills if requested.
    - Music Theory lessons upon request.

    I have an acute ear for detail and upon our first session and hearing you we will be able to discuss your voice and how to move forward.

    About Me

    A versatile vocalist specialising in pop,rock, jazz, soul, alternative,trip hop , funk and blues as well as musical theatre and cross over genres, Olga has been a vocalist and violinist since she was 7 years old, participating over the years in classical, folk and rock choirs, opera ensembles, orchestras and musical theatre performances.

    Olga has extensive experience as a session singer, as a songwriter and as a performer along with her experience as an ensemble/band leader and violinist. Furthermore she has trained in Popular Vocal Performance and Production at The London Centre of Contemporary Music in London where she was awarded a BMUS (Hons) and in Music Pedagogy at Middlesex University, London where she was awarded The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Music.

    Upon watching Olga perform one is instantly allured by her expressive vocal and the vulnerable yet tempestuous honesty with which she expresses the lyrics making each song her own.Having a 3 octave range and having received training in various styles of music along with years of experience, Olga can adapt to a variety of genres and sing in the original style of the piece, improvise or re-arrange a song into something completely new and unexpected.Olga also teaches small workshops (pop/rock bands and choirs) and works as a vocal coach on a one-to-one basis.

    She has proven adept in helping people with vocal problems or vocal strain, having suffered from GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) and a resulting nodule herself in the past and having not only sung professionally and taught despite her vocal problems but also overcome them. The lessons focus on relaxing the throat, tongue, jaw and body, finding vocal freedom, resonance and power through mastering and understanding technique and breathing while also nourishing expression and diversity through studying a variety of styles and unlocking each individual's original voice,steering away from mimicking the original artist or karaoke type singing.

    Olga believes that anyone can sing and that the key is to help her students get in touch with their true selves and with their honest expression. She often uses yoga and meditation techniques as well as some simple acting exercises in order to help her students "unlock" their emotions and unleash their voice.

    Finally Olga also has substantial experience working with children and teenagers in a secondary music classroom and extra curricular activities (including choir,orchestra and rock band).She has helped teenagers find their voice and broaden their tastes to other styles of music,prepare for auditions and boost their creativity with songwriting lessons. She has even helped people acquire a sense of pitch and musicality from scratch.

    After 10 years of training and working in the popular music scene, Olga has recently resumed her training in classical singing in order to expand her skills further.

I place a strong emphasis on intuitive learning through speaking and reading and I let the grammar and vocabulary knowledge build naturally. I do follow textbooks when required but I also lesson plan around it, using the student's interests to make the class interesting.

    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.

    Singing. Learn voice technique for any style! Gesang
    I am a pianist and lyrical soprano, studying the Masters for voice at the ZHdK, Zürich. I offer vocal technique and repertoire lessons for any style of music. Regardless of the style, singing is about correct breathing, a relaxed body and lots of expression! I have experience in other fields, such as jazz and flamenco, and I have already being teaching for a couple of years. Children and adults are wellcome. Don't hesitate asking! :) María

    Singing lessons for all voice types (English, French, or Spanish)
    I hold a BM in Secondary Choral Music Education from Brigham Young University, wherein I was awarded the Barlow Music Endowment. I have been a private voice instructor, choral director, and professional opera and choral singer for over 12 years, and have taught throughout the United States and France both privately and at specialist schools such as the Children's Choir of Paris. I have performed with premier vocal ensembles on tour throughout Europe, as well as with the 8-time Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus. I have over twelve years of experience conducting adult and children's choirs in various community and ecclesiastical capacities. I offer singing lessons (classical and contemporary) to all levels and ages as well as musicality, language, sight-reading, dictation, and performance skills. I am patient and nurturing. I understand how daunting vocal lessons can be, and will work at building your self-confidence as well as a good technique. As your vocal instructor, I will help you to set goals that develop your unique instrument and bring out your own personality. I believe that singing is an important form of communication, and will use my experience to help you to deliver a performance with integrity and meaning. Above all, it must always be a joyful experience.
