Discover your voice with professional singer Olivia! (Classical, pop, musical theatre, opera!)

Are you curious about singing, but feel like you don’t know where to start? Do you already have some experience of singing and are curious about what your voice could achieve at its full potential? Do you feel shy about your voice and wish you could feel confident enough to sing in front of other people? I am Olivia, a professional opera singer who is passionate about teaching singers a healthy vocal technique in all styles of singing, and helping them to grow in confidence along the way. My teaching room is a safe space where students are free to experiment, make mistakes and discover everything about their voice with my full support!

I have been teaching singing privately to pupils of all ages and levels for several years, as well as enjoying a busy performance career. I find that being a regular performer myself is very important when imparting knowledge and advice to my students because I want to teach you more than just the mechanics of singing - I want to guide you towards being an artist and expressing YOUR unique voice and personality. I work on vocal technique, drama and language, and have worked with children, teenagers, and adults - both those hoping to sing professionally and enthusiastic amateurs! Every lesson will include warmups and technical exercises as well as work on repertoire that we will choose together. I can teach in English, French or Italian.

As for my performance experience: I began taking singing lessons at 13 years old after joining the school choir in secondary school in London, and adored the process of training my voice. In my teens, I performed in concerts as a soloist and also in a few musical theatre roles, most notably Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. I moved to Switzerland and trained as an opera singer at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève, and did a Specialised Masters (Soloist) at the Hochschule der Künste Bern.

I have since gone on to perform with the opera houses of Geneva, Lausanne and Lucerne, the Opera House of Zrenjanin in Serbia, the Jeunesses Musicales Opera Studio (Croatia), London Grimeborn Festival, and have been a featured soloist at such concert venues as the Berlin Philharmonic, Salle Paderewski in Lausanne, the BFM in Geneva, the Cologne Philharmonic, and St Johns Smith Square in London. Most recently you may have seen me as Mrs P. in the Swiss première of Michael Nyman's 'The Man who mistook his Wife for a Hat' in Vevey, or if you've been enjoying the program 'Blob Opera' this year, you might be interested to know that I was one of the opera singers working on this project by recording hours of material for a machine to create an algorithm that recreating an opera singer's voice!

Good singing is about solid and healthy vocal technique, a good feeling for music, self-expression and confidence! I would love to work with you to build all of these parts of yourself and to see where your voice takes you.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch with me!

About Me

I am a professional opera singer based in Switzerland with a career on the stages of Europe. Singing is my passion, and part of that passion is igniting the light of singing in other people!

I firmly believe that anyone of any age and experience can learn to sing, and that it is possible to achieve a healthy vocal technique in any genre of singing. I love working with my students, so please do reach out and join my singing community!

Claudine
Discover the pleasure of singing and the multiple capacities of your instrument body!
You will find a benevolent setting where you can try, start again, make mistakes, without judgment and with pleasure. No prerequisites for getting started. Your rhythm will be respected as well as the style and choice of repertoire you want to work on: pop, current music, musical or classical singing. Come fearlessly with your questions and your desires! Individual lessons for teenagers / adults - Technical work: breath, voice development through exercises adapted to the level and profile of each - Work on a piece from the repertoire: Putting technical work into practice on a piece chosen by the practitioner or by teaching for educational reasons. This moment also allows you to develop the learning of music theory if necessary. Objective: to be able to sing a piece while being comfortable with the accompaniment so that interpretation and pleasure predominate. Semi-private lessons For all ages, levels or tessitura. Form your small group (mixed or not) to do a group singing workshop! - Technical collective work. General approach to singing but also adapted to the needs of each one via bodywork and vocal warm-up. - The course is adapted according to the needs and desires of the group. However, I suggest two ways of working: o Soloist work: each participant brings a piece they wish to work on. Personalized working time that allows other participants to develop listening skills and learn by watching. We help each other, we advise each other with respect and kindness. o Choral work: Singing in several voices is an important part of singing and helps to broaden the repertoire. Work a capella or with the accompaniment of a piece with several voices in order to develop listening to the other, create one and the same voice with several, open up and decomplex! No need to know how to read music! As a choir director, I developed learning tools to allow non readers to work their scores on their own. Musical awakening course from 4 years old. We discover in this workshop the sounds, the rhythms, the instruments. We dance, we sing, we have fun, we learn by playing! - Listening: Recognition of basic rhythms, learning of notes and different sound universes - Fingerboard: Body percussion and practice of small instruments - Breathe: Simple breathing exercise to discover the instrument body. - Sing: whisper, shout, sing! We explore all possibilities from the spoken voice to the sung voice - Play: through games you learn without realizing it! I offer individual lessons of 30 min for children between 4 and 7 years old. It is also possible to form small groups to take a sibling or a group already formed. The course time can be adapted according to the desire of the child or the size of the group formed. Musical awakening lessons from 7 years old Music lessons where we develop the basics of musical awakening. The child is better able to learn more complex rhythms as well as songs sung in one or two voices. We develop our ear, our voice always with pleasure and having fun! - Listening: Recognition of more complex rhythms, recognition of notes and discovery of different styles of music - Fingerboard: Body percussion with several - Breathe: Breathing exercise to develop the voice. - Sing: we learn songs, canons with several voices - Play: you always learn while having fun! I offer 45-minute individual lessons for children from 7 years old. It is also possible to form small groups to take for example a sibling or a group already formed. The course time can be adapted according to the desire of the child or the size of the group formed.

Felipe
Singing lessons: Vocal technique oriented to diferrent styles. (Opera, Jazz, Pop, Rock) Breath managment, body consciousness, placement.
I´m a profesional Opera Singer, who is also giving lessons in vocal technique since 7 years. This class is for begginers and intermedium level singers who want to improve the manage of their voices. The class starts with different vocalizations and breathing exercises to warm the body and start to understand how the voice works. Then we start to sing in order to apply the new concepts to different songs. The class its adaptable to every pupil, because everyone has their one vocal history, which means, they have different problem, which need differents aproaches.

Emma
Learn to Sing with a Qualified Opera Singer with 6+ years teaching & professional performance experience.
Whether you're a beginner who just wants a confidence boost, or someone with a music background who wants to take your technique up a notch, I'd be so happy to make music with you! The principles of music-based vocal & breath work have such power, & will not only make you feel more oxygenated, but will bring out a strength of voice & character that you didn't know you possessed! I am/have been Peripatetic Vocal Coach at 2 Independent Girls High Schools, 2 Preparatory schools (one of which is all-boys), and teach several homeschoolers (one of whom lives in Zambia, and is online). I'm confident that I can give you the same sound pedagogical experience online that you would receive on site. Here's what one of my pupils from 2019 had to say: "I have always loved singing, but never had the confidence to follow through with my passion. As an adult it can be pretty daunting. I had a couple of lessons with Emma, & through her encouragement, patience & great teaching skills, my confidence grew .. She inspired me to believe in myself and my ability to sing, especially when I did not believe it myself. She is a tremendously positive, engaging & fun teacher, & I always came out of her lessons feeling better than I had walking in, & looking forward to the next lesson!" Others in 2022 said: "I now feel that I can sing well beyond 45mins, whereas previously with another coach, it was all that I could manage in a day. " "I have been singing this song for a while, and haven't been able to sing those tops. In one lesson, you've shown me, as a tenor, how to do so - and comfortably!" Colleagues of mine at schools that I teach at have said of my lessons: "It is a privilege to listen to you teach." "I have never heard sounds like that coming from our department!" So what are you waiting for? Join me online, from a vocally safe and sunny home studio, & let's start from where you're at, make music, & have FUN doing it!

Dominyka is a singer and a vocal coach that is currently living in The Netherlands. She plays piano, violin and writes her own music. Over the past decade she had a chance to graduate from the Royal Conservatory in The Netherlands with Bachelor's and Master's diploma in jazz singing and pedagogical minor studies.

"I feel like voice is a unique thing and music is such a good therapy. I believe everyone can sing, and I believe that everyone could sing greatly if they are patient and put work in it." - Dominyka "I promise that with our singing lessons you will learn more about your own voice and that you will develop your own sound as a singer. We work on warm ups/warm downs, breath support, vowel placement, vocal effects, vocal colour, dynamics, articulation, stage presence, high notes - power singing (belting), and so much more. My goal is to have a good time and spend our lesson's time wisely while we achieve the best results within singing. If there is a need I can also help you to broaden your knowledge about the repertoire that is suiting to your voice colour, recording sessions, live performance situations, "a workout plan for singing", songwriting/composing, music theory, and such."

Group lesson Kindergarten music. Group Musiclessons for Children from 4-6 years. Online available too.
Music and movement go hand in hand for young children. In this course, toddlers are busy with music and movement. Simple instruments such as drums and rhythm sticks belong here, but also balls and scarves, for example. There is an appeal to the imagination, different types of music are listened to, and many are sung and danced. This course is actually the logical continuation of Music on lap lessons, but without parents. For

Egle
Opera singer offers lessons for Beginners and Professionals
My course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn to sing. This can be classical, jazz or pop singing. I teach online. I have students form all over the world - USA, India, Mexico, China, Germany, Romania, Italy, etc. Beginners, intermediate and professional singers who have technical difficulties will feel comfortable in my lessons. For me, it is important that after each singing lesson the student feels that he has made a little progress. I work with vocal exercises, breathing techniques and posture for the first 20-30 minutes and then with musical pieces. Repertoire will be chosen together with the student, paying special attention to the protection and development of his/her voice. I put special emphasis on expanding the voice range and interpretation.

Elena
Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye
