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, a relaxed yet active posture, dynamics, timbre, volume and how to blend melody and text.
Lax Vox - Bubbling
One of the methods I use daily in my lessons is Lax Vox. How does it work? What are the do's and dont's? And how do I use it train the voice? These questions and more are answered during a special bubble lesson.You can purchase your own tube made of glass or silicone during the 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!
Kids are welcome to my singing lessons from the age of 8. We will work on a good posture, breathing, rhythm and melody. Together we'll select songs that are both challenging and fun to sing!
Singing in a small group?
When a child sings with other children it will automaticaly sing more freely, because they don't only hear themselves. A perfect basis for future individual lessons. Of course I can help you to select the right kind of lesson for your child. Send me an email or telephone request and we will figure it out!
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.
