Singing lessons with certified teacher. Improve breaks, range and power.

Feeling like you're not using the full potential of your voice? I'm a certified voice teacher and I can help you with that. I am part of a worldwide voice community, The Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA) and I am regularly receiving training and being tested to be the best singing teacher I can be for you.

Some of the teachers in this community I am part of, teach big names of the music industry. I have learnt directly from them. That means that when we have a lesson, you will be getting the same training as stars like Brandon Flowers (The Killers), Seal, Dan Reynolds (Imagine Dragons), Barbara Streisand, Michael Jackson, Brendon Urie (Panic! at the disco) many broadway artists and singers from all possible music styles have learnt with.

In our lessons I will analyze your voice, define a goal for the lesson and trace a plan to achieve that goal. Then we will do vocal exercises that work almost like going to the gym, but for the muscles inside your larynx. Finally we will go through song application, and since I am also a singer/songwriter with a career of more than 10 years, I can help you with interpretation and stylistic choices.

I want to help you start loving all aspects of your own voice. Working with what you have and improving what you can improve, never forgetting the most important thing which is to enjoy the experience of singing.

About Me

Hi! My name is Nathaje. I am a singer/songwriter, working professionally with music since 2006, and a certified singing teacher from The Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA).

I was born and raised in Brazil, moved to Switzerland in 2015 and finally to London in 2021 where I am currently based. I grew up with a strong musical atmosphere at home. I had piano lessons from a young age, took drama, guitar and singing lessons for many years. I have performed often and with many different musicians and musical styles, from small and intimate gigs to large concerts. I was also a lead singer in band from a TV show in Brazil, touring all over the country.

I compose my own songs and have 3 fully original studio albums recorded. My album "Heal" (2019) was streamed over half a million times and my music video for "Follow the Light", the first single of that album, is on MTV Germany. You can check all my songs out on Spotify, Youtube... everywhere really.

​Why do I teach? I always loved teaching, so it came as a natural path for me to follow. Since I was a little kid I had a passion for simplifying things and finding thousands of different ways of explaining something until the person would finally get it. I believe nothing is too difficult to learn, if you manage to find an easy way of teaching it.

In 2009 and 2010 I was performing 15 times per month, for big audiences (thousands of people). That was when I realised the other methods of singing were not helping me. I was constantly struggling to keep up with the demands of a high energy pop/rock concert, and my voice was not prepared for that. The high notes felt impossible to sing, unless they were too light and boring. I was pushing, squeezing, and hurting my voice.

I had lessons with 8 different teachers, and all they told me to do was to "support", to breathe, to do the scales... it wasn't working.

Thankfully in 2013 I found out about the IVA methodology, searching for speech level singing technique. I started my training with them then and I never stopped. IVA's method has helped me so much that I decided to join the teacher's program in 2016 and since then I have been helping other singers and voice professionals with their own voices.

The beauty of this method is that is very science based, and we are a big community of 300+ teachers around the globe, so you won't be simply taking my word for it. Our ear training allows us to hear how your muscle function is working, and we adapt the exercises and the lesson flow specifically for your voice at that point in time. That means that no 2 lessons are the same.

Because I also have studio and stage experience, I can help you with that too! I have helped students start composing and recording their own songs, or cover songs. I have all the professional equipment and acoustic treatment in my studio to record your vocals, and I work side by side with producers for you to have an industry standard quality track.

I love being geeky about the voice, but singing is way beyond applying the correct technique. Music is art, and as an artist myself I understand the need to focus on the emotions and the expressiveness of our voices, and to use the technique to support that, to free and increase our range of possible vocal choices.

Singing, just like any other skill, is something that, the more you exercise, the better you get. So if you think you don't have enough "talent" it might just be you haven't spent enough time doing it. If you don't find your voice beautiful, it might just be you haven't explored all the possible sounds you can make. Every instrument is beautiful in their own way. You wouldn't say a guitar has an ugly sound. Maybe the guitar player couldn't get the best sound out of that guitar, that's all.

I want to help start loving all aspects of your own voice, working with what you have and improving what you can improve, never forgetting the most important thing which is to enjoy the experience of singing.

Nathaje made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. I arrived very nervous and left wiser and wanting more.
I had a great connection with Nathaje which is important, especially since we started during the Pandemic and opted for online training. Nevertheless I felt completely immersed in her lesson and was comfortable throughout our session. She's an excellent teacher with patience and genuine interest in your vocal improvements.

Deborah
Group lesson Singing Pregnant: Group Singing during pregnancy. Online possible too.
Singing gives relaxation; the exercises used in singing technique such as low breathing and relaxation exercises are also pleasant and useful when you are pregnant. Furthermore, research has shown that the unborn child already responds to music. For example, music that is often repeated during pregnancy provokes a calming response when the baby is born. Also the voice of the mother is recognized immediately after birth. Deborah would therefore like to start with a singing group for pregnant women. Besides the exercises, we sing canons, polyphonic music and lullabies in different languages ​​and styles.

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!
