Vocal Days

COURSE 1: BASICS

In this course we will discover and improve our own voice with breathing and vocal exercises. Together we remove inhibitions about singing in front of other people, learn how to convey feelings while singing, try out different vocal styles and build self-confidence. And: we have fun in a relaxed atmosphere.

For beginners, advanced, choir singers and everyone who likes to sing.

COURSE 2: FIND YOUR OWN VOICE

We discover our own voice with breathing, voice and song exercises. There is input on the subject of voice and identity. Together we set out to be completely me” and therefore completely my voicein front of other people — completely authentic. We want to be authentic”.

For beginners, advanced, choir singers and everyone who likes to sing.

COURSE 3: MASTERCLASS

On these two course days we refine the vocal technique and the expression based on our own repertoire (please bring songs with you). We deal with authenticity, stage presence, monitoring (in-ear and floor monitors) and communication with the sound technician. We sing on stage with everything that goes with it.

For singers who regularly sing in front of an audience.

Note

The three Vocal Days can be attended individually and independently of one another. We offer a combined special price for all three courses (see information).
