Erik Slik Singing Lessons in Zaandam

Voice Lessons in Zaandam and Amsterdam

Are you looking for an enthusiastic, professional singing teacher near you? I'm Erik Slik, tenor in Amsterdam - Haarlem area. My lessons take place in my cosy studio in Zaandam, only 15 minutes from Amsterdam.

Singing for All Ages and Levels

Singers of all levels and ages are welcome to sign up for a trial lesson. I have experience in teaching both adults as wel as children (from 10 years old)

Discover Your Voice

Discover how rewarding it is to develop your voice and let that voice be heard. The basic technique we will use to achieve that is the classical voice technique with a great deal of attention for body posture, breathing technique and efficient sound production.

Voice Training

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!

Singing in Various Styles

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!

Singers and performing on Stage

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.

Online Singing Classes

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!

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.

Prettige zanglessen!

De aangereikte kennis en aanwijzingen zijn zeker helpend. Je hebt een hele heldere en prettige manier van lesgeven..wat mij betreft zeker voor herhaling vatbaar!
Joke Kingma, Vocal Group Effair

Zanglessen in alle stijlen!

Op de fiets onderweg naar zangles van Erik Slik was ik altijd vrolijk mijn stembanden al aan het opwarmen. Op de terugweg nog vrolijker en nog steeds aan het zingen, nieuwe technieken aan het oefenen. Erik heeft een talent om je op jouw gemak te laten voelen, goed aan te sluiten op jouw niveau en wat er nodig is om vooruit te komen. Erik stelde mij altijd gerust als ik onzeker was met zijn engelengeduld. Erik straalt als hij les geeft en elke muziekgenre is mogelijk. Tijdens de lessen merkte ik een grote passie voor het muzikale vak bij Erik, een echte professional. Ik kan niks anders dan positief zijn over de zanglessen van Erik. Voor mij een goede match: een betrokken zangdocent met een goede dosis humor.
Laura, hobbyzangeres

Erik is een geweldige zangleraar!

Erik is een geweldige zangleraar! Hij combineert het aanleren van techniek - het gebruik maken van je lijf - met de kracht van beleving / inleving in het stuk/song. Erik is superenthousiast en complimenteus. Hij stimuleerde me om verder te gaan dan ik dacht dat ik kon. Erik is op en top vakman. Hij zingt zelf geweldig en heeft de gave om het over te brengen, te doceren. Resultaat is super. Ik ga zeker bij hem terugkomen.
