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.

Reviews (4)

I can only reccomend Olga. Individual and fun approach was exactly what I needed 🙂
The first lesson my daughter had with Olga went great. She was quickly at ease, connected and quickly into conversation.
She is a great teacher, very professional and a great person - after a while, I will get back to another lesson with Olga - best wishes....Soni
My first lesson was great. Olga is very instinctive - she started with some basic exercises and very quickly figured out where I needed to focus most and shaped the lesson accordingly. After one hour I had made more progress than in the last couple of decades.
I specialize in teaching children and adults. I make learning creative and fun and completely tailor made to each student's learning style and strengths. 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.

Pop singing lessons! If you have been dreaming of singing for a long time, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE to make your dream come True!
If you have been dreaming of singing for a long time, but you lack confidence / knowledge / courage / motivation / etc... These lessons are FOR YOU. I will teach you to sing and express your emotions in music that you want to give yourself and others. My approach is best defined with one word: natural. Everything about you is unique, including your voice. So, my main goal is to reach YOUR INDIVIDUAL potential! In working with students, I use different vocal methods based on my own experience. I do not use complex technical terms, but always looking for the easiest explanations. Our body is much "smarter" than we think and all the sounds that we use in singing, we already know how to make (so we just need to find them).

ONLINE SINGING LESSONS - SÉBASTIEN (SKYPE, ZOOM ect...)
Whether you are a beginner or a professional, whether it is to sing or work on your spoken voice, I am here to dedicate you personalized coaching. More than 15 years of experience as a singer including 8 as a Vocal Coach. Graduated from the MUSIC ACADEMY INTERNATIONAL in Nancy and trained for many years with RICHARD CROSS, first as a singer and then as a Vocal Coach, Richard trained me in his own pedagogy, the RICHARD CROSS pedagogy. Our voice, very mysterious under aspects, can seem complex to apprehend at first sight. But there are many ways to approach it and my job as a Vocal Coach is to find with you the way that will suit you best, according to your personality, your universe, your desires, your goals. Singing mobilizes the whole body and makes the whole of it vibrate, before being music it can therefore be a discovery with oneself. My job is to guide you step by step, so that together we find the keys that will open the doors to your vocal comfort and your musical universe.

Improve your singing ! -- No matter where you start!
I am a singer, currently studying in ZHDK in a solo performance master. I studied classical singing, but besides that, I had a jazz band and performed in 2 musicals, so I explored many genres. I am very curious about the voice, and how every person can improve, no matter the starting level! I have also studied the piano so I can accompany you (not a professional pianist, though) Learning singing is an interesting inner path, working on the "posture", breathing, body tensions, but also getting attentive to the quality of sounds, about the characteristics of every style, and about who you are as a person! I'm interested to work on what you would like to improve, and would be very interested in working with people who sing "out of tune" and think they sing very badly! There is an interesting work to do, finding the confidence in your ears and voice!

In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Solfeggio: Reading music in sheet music with the voice
I teach you to read the scores with your voice. We are going to learn to sing scales, arpeggios and intervals, and to identify them on the staff to read them. We will also see what is the key signature, the tones and the modes. As everything is sung, we will detach the two mechanisms: the chest voice and the head voice, and we will tune the ear.

Professional mezzosoprano offers singing lesson to children and adults!
Hello, I’m Elena, I’m Italian and I’m an opera singer :) I’ve been training children and teens for 6 years, especially helping them with auditions and tests. I’ve been singing in theaters almost all my life since I started when I was just 8; nowadays I work as a professional mezzosoprano all around the world both in educational projects for kids and children and in big productions. I like teaching because I can share my experience with somebody that needs it and I always get to learn something from my pupils too: I swear teaching makes me a better singer. I give lessons for any kind of purpose: - learning music - improving musicality - preparing an audition - finding our own voice - overcoming insecurity Everybody is different, so everybody has its own path to go through; I cater my lessons to the pupil’s needs, and even if the method is always classical, I make sure that the hour of lesson is a fun moment as well as a learning experience. Music is life and life is fun! If what you have read interests you, I’m here to answer all your questions, so don’t be afraid: write me and I’ll see how I can help you! During the trial lesson, we will take the time to get to know each other better, assess levels and goals, and start to work on them already. I can’t wait to meet you!

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.
