February 15 – 19: „the next step“ – Retreat for Singers over 35
Finally a masterclass for singers who have already been in the job for some years!
No listeners and no stress with a final concert!

August 18 – 28  exzellenz labor oper

The perfect course for singers and pianists in the opera field who are already rather successful but want to join our team of highly professional specialists in order to get this „finishing touch“ which, in the end, makes the decisive difference.

Masterclasses at Opera-Studios

Among other things, the challenge for young singers and pianists in opera studios is to intelligently and confidently integrate the input of various guest instructors into their own singing and playing. I am fortunate to be able to work regularly with the young singers and pianists of several opera studios, thereby ensuring a certain degree of continuity.

The technical foundations of my teaching are flexible, flowing breath, a slender method of vocalization, and a sensible employment of the resonance cavities.

The goal is to have created a stable technical framework for complete „artistic permeability,“ which will allow the singer to be free in their artistic and musical interpretations, and for them to enjoy a healthy and long-term pursuit of our highly demanding profession.

WORKSHOPS IN FEBRUARY

3 workshops and a new format of masterclass

The workshops in February are with my beloved Opera Studios in the houses of Paris, Zürich and Frankfurt. AND there will be a new format by exzellenz labor oper: a RETREAT for singers 35+, which I give together with agent and ex-singer René Massis and Conductor and répétiteur Björn Huestege. Alina Shevchenko will be our course- accompanist.

NEW YEAR – NEW START

In January 2023, I can work with three of the Studios which I visit regularly

Workshops November / December

For the last two months of the year, I have the pleasure to work with those studios which I visit regularly. It is a great pleasure to see the young singers again and continuously help them.

Wie fest ist „fest“? How fest is „fest“?

The word "fest" can be very misleading. Der Ausdruck "fest" kann irreführend sein.
