Teaching

If you’re interested in improving your singing, I am more than happy to help. I teach singing at home in Cologne, online and at the Folkwang University Of Arts in Essen, Germany .

In these lessons, we’ll find out what you need and how to get there. We’ll dig into all kinds of technical aspects: sound colours, rhythm, improvisation, interpretation. Some specific topics are: breathing in an efficient way, how to widen your vocal range, getting rid of hoarseness or unwanted vocal breaks, how to improve your improvisation skills, explore resonance, getting deeper into the meaning of a song, preparing for concerts or auditions, finding your own repertoire, etc. I might not be able to give you all the answers, but I’ll help you asking some essential questions.

In order to become more independent, we’ll work on gaining trust in your own ears, the process of learning itself and finding the joy about it.
