« I met Gisela when I joined a chamber music class (which she tutored) several years ago. As a lockdown project I decided to learn how to sing and Gisela has been giving me on-line singing lessons. She is very good at explaining and demonstrating the physical/technical aspects of singing. She is extremely patient and flexible, often suggesting several approaches to tackling a problem.

Professional classical singer with 10 years experience offers singing classes including relevant aural and theory

Methodology

My method is based on awareness of body and mind, with focus on finding what I call an “open posture”- upright and allowing for optimum breathing but flexible, feeling the breath throughout the body and finding an effective and natural sound. My lessons are best suited to adults. I teach through a step-by-step approach in studying repertoire, starting with the basics of the musical score (rhythm and pitch - using aural skills based on “degrees of the scale” and intervals- not unlike Sol-fa, but not using the syllables), proceeding with words, pronunciation (and translation, if applicable) and word underlay and at the highest level of work, integrating both to achieve a deep understanding of the meaning of the song/aria and having fun singing it! I also help people with performance anxiety bringing out their best when in exam situations or performing in concerts of any kind. I am a native German speaker and have knowledge of several other languages, especially French and Italian. I provide free audio tracks of vocal warm-ups etc. with lessons, and during face-to-face lessons, people are welcome to record their class. Since I am also an accompanist, I can offer backing tracks to practice on request, for a small charge.

Experience

I am a trained classical musician (piano, piano accompaniment, cello and singing) holding several music degrees, including a teacher’s qualification for private instrumental and vocal teachers. Through my work as professional accompanist I came to solo singing myself and have been teaching and coaching singers for over 10 years. Apart from private tuition I am also vocal tutor for the City Lit institute and occasionally cover for tutors at City and Islington Sixth form college.

Gisela has been my piano teacher for the last two years, at first in an adult education class and then on Zoom for the last year. The transition to online teaching went quite smoothly. As an older beginner I really appreciate her friendly and ever encouraging approach which gave me the confidence I needed to make good progress and pass my exams. I am happy to recommend her wholeheartedly .

For several years now I have been learning to sing both classical and musical theatre songs at the City Lit. Gisela was recommended to me as a tutor who would help me privately with my singing. I have benefited tremendously from her great insight into all aspects of singing. Her creative, holistic, intelligent and fun filled approach has greatly assisted my development as a singer, and I have no hesitation at all in recommending her as an excellent singing teacher.

A very accessible and sympathetic tutor. Lessons are a pleasure with her

I met Gisela face:face very briefly just before 2020 lockdown and we have been doing one:one piano lessons online for more than a year now. She has helped me enormously with technique and generally with analysing a piece. She is a very observant teacher and makes really useful and supportive suggestions. I always feel very motivated to work on my practice after lessons. I heartily recommend her.

Katherine

Gisela is teaching me piano. I am almost a beginner but feel I have really progressed over the three months that I have been working with her on Zoom. She is very good at identifying practical ways in which I can improve both my technique and confidence, with simple effective suggestions for practise and fingering. She is friendly, supportive and interesting and clearly has great musical skill and experience but remembers how it feels to be learning.
