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.

Lessons in Piano, Singing and trumpet for complete beginners to grade 8 and over
The arts are vital for development and self expression. As children we learn, play and communicate with songs and rhymes, as we get older our music taste can often help in defining and finding out more about ourselves. There are also studies showing that learning an instrument can aid communication skills, maturity and keep the brain functioning into older age. In my lessons I aim to teach instruments to anyone who is interested in exams, playing for fun or if they want to learn another skill for it’s mental benefits. I have a grade 8 in trumpet, singing and organ and i have experience playing in a variety of different ensembles and genres. I have also taught many people theory, instruments and exam techniques for music. If you’re interested in any of the instruments I offer lessons but are hesitant to start. I urge you to give it a go.

Gisel
Singing Classes with The Voice of Switzerland semi-finalist
Hi! My name is Gisel and I'm a singer, songwriter, participant and winner of several contests like "The Voice of Switzerland" (SRF), "Die grosse Entscheidungsshow" (SRF), "With you in Hollywood" (Warner Channel) and Sellaband. I've been learning, teaching and performing since 1998 and I have a wide experience training and developing my student's voices through a solid and healthy vocal technique that can be applied to all styles of music and that has the particularity of protecting the vocal chords and safely developing the vocal range. I can teach you to: - Control your breathing and improve your breathing capacity - Increase and control your vocal range - Improvise and develop your own style - Work on popular vocal techniques: vibrato, falsetto, riffs, vocal runs, head voice, mixed voice, chest voice - Discover and enhance your self expression, confidence and interpretation - Master the stage and improve your stage presence If you have any questions, please get in touch! In case you'd like to know me better, here is my story: In 2003, after winning the contest sponsored by Warner Channel's “The Bachelorette”, Gisel flew to Jamaica, where she had the opportunity to perform and she was broadcasted in all Latin America. From that point on, Gisel entered and won a singing and songwriting competition “With you in Hollywood”, a show produced by Warner Channel. Winning that contest gave her the opportunity to travel to Hollywood in 2004, where she performed in the “City of Angels.” Afterwards, in August 2004, Gisel joined a Rock & Roll band known as “The Spanglish Band” and became the lead female vocal singer. This was a great opportunity to perform in some well-known clubs, restaurants, and events. She had also performed live in a key political event that was attended by more than 5000 VIP personalities including the winner of the Nobel Prize in literature, Mario Vargas Llosa (to whom she sang the “Happy Birthday” live acapella) and a large number of Presidents from Spain, Uruguay, Mexico and several other politicians. On March 22, 2007, she joined In this fund-raising platform, she became the fastest “Final Countdown” in SellaBand’s history to that date, raising approximately $14,000 in 2 days becoming the 25th artist to achieve $50,000 for the recording of her debut album, “All The Way”. In 2010, she began an European and Asian Tour, performing in countries like the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Russia. In 2013, and after several pre-auditions, she was chosen to participate at the Blind Auditions of the world-wide popular singing contest “The Voice of Switzerland“. With her rendition of the Whitney Houston’s hit “I Have Nothing” she was chosen by the legendary blues artist Philipp Fankhauser to join his team of 10 singers. After winning “The Battles” and the “Sing-Off”, she went through to the final stage of the broadcast “The Live Shows”, where she became one of the best 12 singers in Switzerland. Later 2013, Gisel submitted a song for the Swiss selections of the Eurovision Song Contest. Together with her teammates of Team Philipp from the Voice of Switzerland, Ricardo Sanz and Iris Moné, she recorded the latin-pop flavor song titled “Together Forever” with the band name “3 for All”. After several internal selections and the public vote, Together Forever made it to the Swiss National Finals (“Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow”) aired on the 1st of February, 2014. The song immediately became a favorite among the Eurofans of all around the world and international polls, including the poll organized by one of the most important Swiss newspapers “20 Minuten”. On the 1st of February 2014, 3 for All performed live “Together Forever” and the cover song “All for Love” in an electrifying performance where they managed to get a standing ovation from the audience. After 50% vote of the jury and 50% of the public vote, 3 for All achieved a terrific 3rd position in the Swiss National Final.

Margareta
Classical singing lesson, voice therapy and voice training
My name is Margareta, I am an opera singer, voice therapist and voice-over artist. In addition to my master's degree in music, I trained as a voice therapist and also completed further training in the Alexander technique, accent method and osteopathic techniques in voice therapy. So my life revolves around the voice. On the one hand, I offer classical singing lessons (opera, operetta, Lied, musical, rock and pop) and, on the other hand, voice therapy and voice training to prevent voice disorders and hoarseness. The main thing for me is not to use a specific method, but rather to work on each voice individually in a holistic and well-founded manner in order to develop its full vocal potential. Singing lessons are primarily about good singing technique, language coaching and assistance for more charisma and presence on stage. Through skilled training of the body and voice, you will achieve high resilience and sing at the highest level with a healthy, authentic and unique voice. This is how you become your own microphone! The most important thing: The lessons thrive on individuality and are tailored specifically to your needs and goals!
