Book a singing lesson
The voice is a much sturdier instrument than most people think. If used correctly, it can fill a theatre without amplification, can go on for hours without tiring and can produce all sorts of incredible and weird sounds. But, however strong it is, it is a unique instrument that, when broken, is very difficult to fix. This is why having a reliable singing technique is so very important. Whether you are an amateur singer, a choral singer or a young aspiring musician, if you sing on regular occasions, you should think about vocal health.
What to expect from the first consulatation
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable. During the first lesson we will have a little chat about what your goals are, we will test out some singing waters by doing some exercises and do a little work on the voice. After all that I will give you a plan on how we can move forward. Once that’s done, it's up to you to decide if it's for you!
I started my musical training at the age of six making the most of the Belgian part time music school system.
I started my first year of classical singing at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp in 2007 and finished my masters degree with distinction in 2012. The following year, I completed the one year specialised teachers degree at the same institution to later go on to do my second masters degree at the Royal Northern College of Music. Where I also finished an Advanced Postgraduate Degree in 2016.
The part-time music education system in Belgium requires teachers to have a degree in music as well as a specific teaching degree. It creates jobs for musicians and maintains a high standard of music education. During the one year of doing a teaching degree students are required to study a plethora of pedagogic theory-based subjects. They also have to complete a set amount of hours of supervised teaching.
Having done all of this, as well as teaching both privately and at several music schools, I have built up a vast amount of teaching experience working with people of all standards and all ages.
