I offer lessons in an encouraging and relaxing environment, customized to you and your individual voice. All you need to bring is your passion for music and for learning. I tailor our lessons in line with what skills you want to develop, what your goals are and what you are interested in. I can prepare you for exams, auditions and performances. If you don’t have any specific wishes, just come around and I will bring ideas, tunes and exercises to inspire you. We will sing together and have a good time :)
Here is what our lessons can consist of:
A good technique is the foundation that will allow you to sing in a healthy, easeful way the rest of your life. I will provide you with exercises to expand your range, sharpen your pitch and strengthen your tone. We will work with consistency and efficiency in your breath and posture. The goal is for you to be comfortable and confident with your own voice.
You will learn to sing new tunes, some of your own choice and some that I recommend. We will experiment with different stylistic approaches and emotional interpretations. You will build a repertoire with songs that you have made your own.
If you are a performer or want to be one, and wish to work with your presentation, I will give you advice on how to meet an audience, tell a story in your singing and build stage confidence. I will always gladly accompany you on the piano.
Composing is essential to me and I would love to share my experience and knowledge with you. We can talk about how to compose a strong melody, harmonize and write meaningful, original lyrics that feel natural to sing.
We can include piano playing in our lessons, if you are interested in comping yourself. The focus will be on how to support your singing with help from the piano. We will work with finding good chord voicings, smooth chord changes, effortless fingering and correct hand positions.
I can help you with developing your theoretical knowledge about harmony, notation, rhythm, scales, modes, musical form, etc. We can work with ear training exercises as well. I have always been a bit of a nerd when it comes to music theory ;)
Making music and sharing it with others is my passion in life. I am a professional freelance musician and composer, studying jazz singing at a conservatoire in London. I have previously studied degrees in composition and folk music, as well as taken lessons in pop, soul and classical music. I have composed and recorded my own music in various ensembles, such as jazz combos, vocal ensembles, big band and symphony orchestra. I have performed at different venues around Europe, such as Blackheath Hall and Oliver’s Jazz Bar (London), the Gothenburg Opera House and Gävle Concert Hall (Sweden), Lübeck Cathedral (Germany) and Firenze Fiera (Italy). I have been teaching music, drama and dance lessons to students at different levels of ages between 3-65, since 2012, and I love it.
