Taking Care of Your Voice

My first and foremost goal is healthy singing! You’ll learn how to make optimum sound and not damage your voice. But that is not all there is to it. Think about, breathing technique, relaxed posture, dynamics, timbre, volume and how to blend melody and text.

Safe Learning Environment

When your feeling safe and oké to make mistakes, you can digest all the information I provide during the lessons. The music, you create, can freely flow through your body.

Your Sound

Every voice is different and has unique abilities. We can achieve optimum sound by loosening your tongue and jaw, encouraging an active posture and inspire your musicality! Curious? Sign up for a trial lesson!

Your favourite Music

What genre makes you happy? Let's find out where your musicality thrives! The repertoire we can work on can be classical, solo and choir, musical theatre, pop and singer songwriter. Let's enjoy music!

Singing in a Choir

How to achieve this pure angelic tone? Or how to make a full sound in gospel? In this style of singing you need particularly good control over the way you sing through your vocal registers. You’ll learn to sing smoothly from your lower ranges to your highest note.

Tailor made Lessons

Enjoy special vocal exercises that will condition your voice so it functions in the best way. We may make use of Lichtenberger, Alexander Technique, EVTS, CVT and Belcanto.

Become a professional?

Are you considering auditions for Conservatories? Let’s make a plan and time scale. In my experience when you start on time and work hard, you can achieve a lot!

Professional Speaker - Voice Training

Does your job require you to speak all day, and in public? I offer a voice training program used to care for the voice of different professional speakers and occupational voice users. This includes lawyers, teachers, media reporters, fitness instructors, telemarketers, and more. Contact me for a trial lesson!

Songwriters Block?

Are you writing your own songs? Awesome! Would you like to learn how to get your song on a whole new level ? Lets enhance your unique sound!

Focus on the Music

Are your nerves in the way? During every lesson we work on your technique and interpretation of the text. The more you’ve come to know the song, the more you’ll be able to trust the music and let go during performance. Knowledge is power!

My story

After doing a preparatoy course classical singing in The Hague (Royal Conservatory) I graduated Musical Theatre at the Conservatory in Alkmaar.
Following I had lessons with Lenie van den Heuvel and many masterclasses such as: Maarten Koningsberger, Francis van Broekhuizen, Nelly Miricioiu.
Since studying I gave singing lessons as well as coaching projects.
Experience with kids (6 to 17 years old) I had in Gouda, Youth theatre school and adults in Leiden University (LAK Cursussen) 17+. (singing technique, musical singing, workshops healthy singing)

How do I keep it fresh?

Training is the key. I go to workshops and masterclasses ánd I am member of a intervision group. Lichtenberger, Alexander Technique, EVTS level 1 and 2, CVT, Baroque singing, the Classical Song, Connected Singing. I perform in many occasions as a soloist and make my own musical theatre shows (classical music for kids 2-8 years old).

Kinderliedjes met Sparkle!

Lieve Carolien
Wat ik zo leuk vind aan jouw zangles, is dat je mij met mijn eigen kinderrepetoire helpt. En dat ik van jou leer hoe ik dat weer met een “sparkle” over kan brengen!
Jacqueline

Positief en vrolijk!

Er is een fijne sfeer; laagdrempelig (ik voelde mij direct welkom), energiek, positief, vrolijk. Ik loop altijd helemaal herboren de deur uit. Naast dat ik leer over zang, brengt het mij ook een stukje persoonlijke groei op het gebied van zelfvertrouwen, durf.
Kim

Beter begrip van mijn stem!

Ik volg nu al meer dan een jaar zangles bij Carolien. Haar lessen zijn geweldig, ze weet iedere keer weer precies wat ik nodig heb om verder te kunnen. Met elk lied dat ze aanraadt leer ik weer iets nieuws. Tijdens de zangles van Carolien ervaar ik een balans tussen denken en voelen - normaal zit ik vooral veel in mijn hoofd. Door de lessen van Carolien heb ik een beter begrip van mijn stem en stemgebruik gekregen. Haar enthousiasme en liefde voor zingen en muziek straalt ze elke les uit. Ik kan iedereen die van zingen houdt aanbevelen om op les te gaan bij Carolien.
