About Me

Hi!

My name is Chris, and I'm a classical tenor who has a burning passion for his art.

Without a doubt, music is my purpose in life, and I'd argue it is in most people's lives. I'm devoted to my craft and always looking to further my knowledge every day.

Alongside my professional performing career, I thoroughly enjoy teaching my students and building up a strong relationship with them. When singing, we put ourselves in a vulnerable position. We are welcoming the audience into our musical world. Thus, there are no barriers between our deepest emotions and our listeners. Learning to sing is a very similar experience as the pupil puts their trust into the hands of their teacher. Trust is the most vital aspect of the whole experience, and I want nothing more than my pupils to flourish.

Many of my pupils have gone onto secure scholarships at leading musical institutions in the UK and regularly perform on national TV and radio.

Of course, this is just a tiny snippet of what I do; I don't just teach my pupils how to 'sing'. Instead, my pupils learn how to communicate not only with an audience but more importantly, themselves. We must learn how to control every aspect of our being when singing. However, this can only happen when we feel relaxed and comfortable.

Why do we sing? Simply because we enjoy it. This ethos transfers directly into my teaching philosophy. We must learn to sing through our enjoyment, happiness, and enthusiasm.

I welcome any interest from potential pupils, and I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Chris

Music theory is an often daunting topic; this doesn't have to be the case! I'm confident that I can guide any pupil through from basic, all the way to advanced knowledge levels (grade 8+). I promise to ensure that no part of my teaching will overcomplicate things. I will always give my students simple yet memorable tools to overcome any hurdles. I know exactly how it feels to struggle with certain aspects of music theory as I have done in the past. I'm extremely friendly, calm, patient, and will always go over and above to help my pupils. I look forward to hearing from you! Chris

Denise
Singing classes in Vienna for all age students and musical styles (Online/Offline)
Dear students: My name is Denise and I'm a professional singer with a singing master's degree from Catalonia's Music College (ESMUC) specialized in Historical Singing, Musicology and Music Education. My experience runs mostly in early and classical music with an active performing life, nevertheless I also have the experience and knowledge of popular musical styles such as Latin-American folk, jazz and musicals. As a docent or vocal coach I've collaborate with different academic institutions and private artistic projects, focusing mostly on international students or social integration programs. I have years of experience teaching children, teenagers and adults in both Latin-America and Europe, therefore understanding different appreciation levels and needs. My main goal is to help the student discover her or his voice while enjoying making music. **Class suggestions and indications** No experience is needed just bring your enthusiasm and favorite music. Classes can be given either in English, Spanish, French or Deutsch. There are no limit for styles, bring your favorite music and I will provide a safe environment for your personal and musical growth. For Children I strongly recommend the 45 min class since their attention span and body development is different from an adult. Feel free to contact me in case of further questions. I would love to work together to achieve your musical goals. All my best, Denise

Isabella
Singing Lessons and Vocal Coaching for all ages and abilities
All classes will be catered towards the ability, experience and ages of the individuals. For all classes I start with a warm up, followed by strengthening skills, voice exercises and vocal development. Then we will work on a song of your choosing or a song of my choosing, if you'd prefer, of any style or genre. We can either work on songs for fun, building repertoire, examinations or performance practise. I aim to ensure that everyone comes out of my lessons feeling as though they have learned something new, improved on something and are feeling proud of themselves! I will happily teach any age, level and ability, and will personalise all lessons to suit each particular student in order to accommodate their style, interests, goals and aspirations. In terms of style, I will happily assist and coach you with any style(s) of your choosing- I specialise in Musical Theatre, Opera and Classical, but am trained to teach any genre (Rock, Pop, etc). For those who are wanting to audition for drama/performing arts schools, I can offer lessons specialising in suitable technique; as well as focusing on repertoire development, dealing with nerves, audition anxiety and stage fright, acting through song, audition cuts and general song coaching. For those who are professionals, semi-professionals and university singing students, I am happy to tailor lessons to focus on particular songs you are working on; assist you in strengthening and finding your mix, chest voice, head voice, etc, and/or focus on anything of your choosing! For those who are beginners, hello and welcome! I am more than happy to teach beginners of any age, whether you are just starting for fun, or starting with the intention of pursuing singing seriously. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your vocal types and am keen and excited to get started!

Cheslava
Piano and Singing tutor with 5 years experience and professional education
From my childhood I have been studying music and art: sang in choir and solo, played piano, painted, studied music history and literature, solfeggio. Later in college I have also learned choir conducting, had ensemble and choir singing lessons, cultural studies. During last year in university I had pedagogy practice at university and at private art school (where I worked as a music tutor before the war - piano, voice). I truly enjoyed working with students. They all were different age (8 - 40+ years old) and level. But all were very interesting and work was pleasant. My education was very various: my core subjects were conducting, choir, voice, piano. So it allowed me to work with children, teens and adults with quite wide range of interests and needs: some students needed/wanted to learn particular composition(s), sometimes pop songs arrangements, some were interested in “introduction” to the music, some wanted to renew skills they gained in their childhood and continue their journey to the music world. In addition I prepared presentations (which contained information about cultural and historical background and musical and character/art analysis). So after graduation from choir conducting faculty (which allowed me to deepen my knowledge in many important compatible branches) I concentrated on studying classical singing and piano, expanded my cultural studies and analysis knowledge, practiced solfeggio and harmony.

Singing Lessons for Beginner and Advanced Students
Deepening my knowledge of singing and passing on my skills to students are the things I love to do most and I have been teaching singing to beginners and professionals for many years now. I start from the basics of breathing, vocal warmup, and anatomy of the phonatory organ, to reach a confident use of the vocal instrument, and mastery of the technique, alongside body awareness. For set-out-artists, for those who want to go further into the technique and receive a guide in the artistic sector, I offer my professionalism in the study of the repertoire and performing techniques, introducing and deepening notions of pronunciation and diction for singers, understanding of the text, acting and executive techniques (applied to singing). Furthermore, my students have the opportunity to make professional recordings, to follow and document their artistic evolution (Self-recording technique lessons can be added). I have a bachelor's degree in classical singing from Conservatorio di Musica “F. Morlacchi” (Perugia, Italy) and I can speak English and Italian in the lessons.
