Your voice is an instrument that needs training and practice so it improves. Fortunately, there are lots of exercises that teach you to breathe or vocalise properly. To sing that high note, to make it through that difficult passage; by training you can achieve more than you think! With your goals in mind, we'll determine what exercises and repertoire suit your voice best. The next step is than just to do it, experiment, hard work and... lots of fun!
Opera, operetta, oratorio, art song, pop- and musical theatre songs; whatever you want to work on, we will work on it. I have performed all these styles on stage and i'm available to give you tips and advice. In my studio I have a nice collection of classical vocal scores and songbooks; perfect for finding inspiration for new repertoire!
Singing can be more than just producing tones; to know and treat your whole body well is an important part. Especially when you aim to perform for an audience or when you're preparing for an audition.
Body and Mind
The lessons are structured in a way, that you learn to sense what's happening in your body, without being held back by undermining thoughts. Through focussing on the body and its task with an open awareness you'll learn to stick to the task; singing, telling the story through the music.
Do you recognise this?
Are you in a choir and feeling vocally tired after each rehearsal? Does your job require you to sing and speak a lot? Suffering from a hoarse voice and sore throat? I'll help you get and keep your voice in a better shape! We make use of specialised excercises of speech therapy, like Lax Vox ("bubbling") and Pahn.
About Erik Slik
Erik Slik studied classical voice at the Conservatory in Utrecht (NL) and was a guest at the Dutch National Opera Academy in Amsterdam and The Hague. He found his voice to be suited very well for the music by e.g. Mozart and Britten, but his career took his voice to all corners of musical history. Besides teaching, he works as a soloist in opera productions, oratorio concerts and close harmony concerts with the ensemble FROMMERMANN. He teaches singing workshops for choirs, develops and gives educational projects for schools and works as a director for musical theatre productions.
