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 three very good opera studios, thereby ensuring a certain degree of continuity.

Furthermore I give masterclasses for the Académie de l’Opéra de Paris, Staatsoper Hannover, Bolshoi Theatre Young Artists Opera Program, and others.

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.

I am a singer – do I have to learn another profession now?

You do not need a new profession, because you have a profession you love very much, but you need, we all need an additional perspective!

Ich bin Sänger*in – Muss ich jetzt noch einen anderen Beruf erlernen?

Du brauchst keinen neuen Beruf, aber vielleicht eine zusätzliche Perspektive!
