1998 - 2002 Scholarship for Musical theater program at Vienna Conservatory of Music and Drama

Overview:

My background is in musical theater and I have sung, acted and danced my way around the world. I love what I do and love to share this passion with my students. I get the greatest joy out of helping my students connect with their own voices, gain confidence and see them grow as a person and as artists. I also teach beginners piano, because for me the piano is the perfect way to introduce children to music and give them a basic map of what music can be. It is also the perfect instrument for singers to accompany themselves and I specialize in teaching a very simple way of accomplishing that very easily and quickly.

EXPERIENCE

I have 10 years of experience teaching voice. My mother is an opera singer and highly successful voice coach in Vienna, Austria and she not only was the best voice teacher I ever had, but also taught me to teach. Sharing my passion with other people has turned out to be one of the most rewarding things in my life. The joy, fun and often surprised looks on my student's faces when all of a sudden a beautiful tone comes out of their mouths, is just priceless!

METHODS USED

The vocal technique I teach is applicable to all singing styles. There is a healthy way to use the voice without straining it, by learning how to control your breath, supporting your tone with your whole body and getting your voice in the right position. I meet my students wherever they are at. I adapt my lessons to the needs of the individual student. Everybody works differently, has different challenges and a different body. While the technique is the same, the approach can be very different for each student. I first work on breath, then warm up the voice with exercices and then we sing and have fun. I accompany my students on the piano and encourage them to perform at recitals if they feel up for it.  Working with children is different: For piano only, I use the Faber+Faber material, it's a fun and easy approach and works very well. Children have a very healthy and natural connection with their voices, so I don't work on technique with them but just sing with them. Combining singing and piano in a half hour lesson works really well in my experience.

LESSON STYLE

Meeting my students where they are at and focusing on their individual needs is the most important thing. And taking away pressure. Learning how to sing is a journey you embark upon. Singing is a joyfull, fun way to grow as a person and as an artist. It takes concentration and focus, though and a willingness to try out new things and very importantly: patience with oneself.  I find, especially young adults can gain so much confidence by singing and by making music in general. It helps them connect to the best part of themselves, that joyful voice that wants to come out and just sound... beautiful!
