I am a singer mostly trained in opera but I am able to teach all types of music. My major concern is to give you the tools to sing healthy without tensions nor harm to your voice. I help to expand your range and volume (or projection of the voice).

A typical lesson consist on warm-up exercises for which you learn many tips and ideas on how to use your voice. It develops technique and broadens your self-consciousness of your voice ability. If needed, I do some ear-training exercises. And for more than the half of the lesson, we sing through repertoire we have chosen together. I ask my students what they want to sing, I suggest a piece and we decide together. Once a month, I ask a pianist to come and accompany my students.

And at the end of the year, I organise a studio recital where the students get acquainted to sing in front of a small audience.

First lesson went well--I believe Elodie will be able to help me get the basics down very well.
