Hello dear interested voice researchers, singers, speaker and presenters!
I am your vocal coach and #teachingartist and I am also giving lessons in English!
To get a small impression of me and my approach, I will present myself to you in the following lines – enjoy! Hope to hear from you and sing with you soon!
Singing is cleansing, expression, fun!
I believe that everybody can find her or his best way of expression:
one more in interpreting, one more in writing and singing lyrics or in giving speeches.
I am trying to give inputs and to support each kind of way and personality.
Coz‘ that is what it is all about – voice and personality!
I was raised in very small village, 45 km from the beautiful city of Vienna. When I was little I could not stop singing, but my first dream job was not to be a singer, but a Vet. After understanding that studying veternarian medicine is the second longest studies, I decided to go with music. Also if Austria, especially Vienna is well-known for classical music, I could not stop thinking about the world of jazz, improvising with my voice and composing, so I applied to study Jazz Vocals.
Education and work:
Since 2011 I am an active vocal coach, working with different kind of „voice-interested“ people, different settings (groups, single), levels, ages (10-65), focus (performance, computer, choir, pop/jazz vocals).
I passed my studies Jazzvocals (with Elfi Aichinger & Agnes Heginger) and Computer Music Studies (with Andreas Weixler) at Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität Linz, Austria with focus on music production, performance and composition.
In my former studies „musicology“ at the University Vienna I focused on Contemporary Music, Jazz, Popculture and Public Relation.
I am working as singer, songwriter/composer and electronic artist in different groups and solo in Jazz, Pop as also in electronic music. On a regular basis I am also working as free editor for radio Ö1/Austrian broadcasting-ORF, as Voice-Over-Speaker, facilitator and as music educator.
What is important to me in my Coaching?
Fun, Humor, Relaxation, Respect,
Releasing of stress and tension...
As a vocal coach I am including technique from Jazz/Classical/Pop and a lot of knowledge about breathing.
I believe that knowledge of the body as also about the functions of our voice „box“ is very important to start working with the voice and to really enjoy it.
#With that basics you will start to feel comfortable, you will know what happens when you use breath as resource, when you start to experiment with dynamics, sounds, voice qualities and of course tonality.
I am also putting a lot of focus on performance and interpretation. As a trained Jazz vocalist I love to improvise and interpret and I show you how to improvise, if you wish so.
In my work, I get inspired by:
breathing technique - yoga - dance - speech technique - my artistic work - body percussion - academic education
Artists that inspired me since I was young:
Joni Mitchell – Nirvana – Stereophonics – RHCP – Kosheen – Moloko – Erykah Badu – K’s Choice – Tori Amos – Regina Spektor – Grace Jones – ESB Trio – Portishead – Chet Baker – Roisin Murphy – Hiatus Kayote – Gustav – Heliocentrics – Snarky Puppy – Stromae – Alt-J – James Blake – Lianne LaHavas – Bazar – Little Dragon – The Do, etc..
