Classical, Opera, Musical to Pop

I will give you practical exercises to help you gain confidence using a varied repertoire - from Classical, Opera, Musical to Pop. Within a vocal lesson you exercise and strengthen your vocal muscles in new ways so you are able to produce a beautiful sound.

Lessons for Beginners

My singing lessons provide an excellent foundation for absolute beginners, as well as for those who have had some basic vocal training but want to gain a more in-depth knowledge of singing.

Have fun!

Don’t worry if you’re a little nervous - it doesn't matter if you don't get it right first time round; it's all about practising and enjoying singing!


Developing body awareness through focus on posture and alignment. Relaxed posture, presentation, breathing, voice production, pronunciation of various languages, intonation and interpretation of the music and text. By working on these different aspects you develop a better awareness of your body and learn to sing or speak with a flexible voice.

Personalised Exercises

During your voice lessons I assess your voice and design exercises for your specific needs. No two voices are the same, neither should be any lesson. Repertoire and exercises are based on your personal goals and voice type.

Are You a Professional Speaker? 

Is speaking in public part of your profession, for example as a lawyer, teacher or actor? Proper use of your voice keeps your voice in good condition and is of major importance for your professional success. Develop your vocal abilities and skills, and optimize the use of your voice.

Voice Coaching - Consciously Singing and Speaking

During my studies for speech therapist I learned the benefits of proper breathing and conscious use of the voice. It can help prevent voice problems and will make you speak and sing freely!

Vocal Expression

Your voice will sound better and your vocal expression will increase! Develop a healthy singing technique so that your instrument will last a lifetime. Helping you use the correct muscles and releasing both mentally and physically can help save a voice from permanent damage.

Online Singing Lessons

I also offer fun, comprehensive and motivating online voice lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced singers. Live feedback and instructions! Book a trial lesson or buy & try the 3 lesson Starter's Package!

De beste die ik me wensen kan

Ruim 2 jaar volg ik zanglessen bij Willemijn van Gent. Zij is de beste docent die ik me wensen kan en een grote inspiratiebron. Ze is professioneel, ter zake kundig, houdt zich doorlopend update via workshops, lezingen en beroepsverenigingen. Ze is enthousiasmerend, warm en hartelijk, bruist van positieve energie. Hoewel ik professioneel harpist ben ben ik qua zang een beginner. Tijdens de lessen kijkt Willemijn naar wat ik nodig heb, probeert diverse invalshoeken uit. De techniek is gedegen met duidelijke uitleg. Ze weet me altijd positief te stimuleren. Extra zijn de begeleidingslessen waarbij een aantal leerlingen voor elkaar zingt met als cadeau een geweldige pianist die ons op fantastische wijze begeleidt. Lieve Willemijn, ik hoop dat ik nog héél lang lessen bij je mag volgen!

Geen spijt van de proefles!

Sinds ruim een jaar volg ik zanglessen bij Willemijn van Gent. Met veel plezier! En resultaat! Willemijn is een warm en deskundig docente die in een ontspannen en veilige sfeer samen met je bouwt aan je zangtechniek, waarbij het plezier in zingen voorop staat èn absoluut toeneemt. Ook van de ‘begeleide lessen’, groepslessen begeleid door een professioneel pianiste die deel uitmaken van de lescyclus, leer je veel op verschillend gebied: zingen met begeleiding, voordracht en presentatie. Best spannend om voor anderen te zingen, maar aanwijzingen van Willemijn zijn steeds raak en stimulerend waardoor je zelfvertrouwen toeneemt. Echt, van een proefles ga je geen spijt krijgen!

She helped me tremendously

Willemijn van Gent is my singing teacher for over a year now. Although singing is my hobby since early years, I never had any singing lessons. Willemijn helped me tremendously in improving my technique to avoid throat problems. Her teaching approach is very stimulating and increasing your confidence. The periodic open, workshop like lessons with a fantastic pianist are so enriching and stimulating, which makes them an event to look forward to!

I feel so lucky

I feel so lucky to be the student of Mrs. van Gent. She is amazingly warm, patient and encouraging, generous and resourceful in teaching. Ever since my first lesson with her on 16JUN2017, my interest in singing, my enjoyment out of learning, and the level of singing itself are all enhanced, in a very natural and scientific way. I am happy about the way Mrs. Van Gent has lead me and will follow her to go far and farther on this interesting exploration.

Excellent lessons!

Apologies for writing in English. I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent lessons. They gave me a real insight into how to improve, while not undermining my confidence (such as it is). And they were fun. I passed the audition for the klein koor! Despite terrible nerves. So thank you for your help. I hope to return at some stage. Perhaps on my Christmas wish list! Best wishes,
