I have been teaching professionally for 15 years. I have a specific teaching curriculum with an emphasis on proper breathing and vocal placement to ensure vocal improvement within two weeks of lessons! I believe singing and acting should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I teach mainly classical voice, Opera voice, and vocal training. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time! As a voice teacher, voice coach, and mentor I have found that music, singing, and creating are almost primordial for many people. I try in my work to bring an understanding of the voice to each person as each voice is an individual spirit and color, helping them find and hold their own singular quality!

About Etleva R.

I am a professional singer and recording artist. I graduated from Johannes Gutenberg University, Germany with a Bachelor of Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built-up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.
Here is a short bio of mine:
Etleva has studied at the Conservatory Tirana, who graduated with honors. She won the first
prize at the "Katia Riciarelli International Voice Competiton", what
besides a scholarship to the Postgraduate studies at the "Academia
Lirica Internationale" in Mantova also diverse Concert performances.
In the same year, she won the 2nd prize in "Vincenzo Nostro Competiton
"and the" Luigi Volpi International Voice Contest "in Italy. A short
time later she came to Germany, where she studied in Mainz with Prof.
Claudia Eder a concert exam has begun. She also received a scholarship
from Dresdner Bank, which allowed her to complete the concert exam
with distinction. About to at the same time she became a scholarship
holder of the Kammeroper Rheinsberg and won the Bayreuth Competition
in Mainz. In addition, she was from the University of Mainz with the
"John Gutenberg Award for Outstanding Achievements "and was ultimately
the winner of the Prize sponsored by the Lions Club and Kiwanis Club
at the Citta International Competition di Alcamo "in Italy. A short
time later she became a permanent ensemble member of the State Opera
Schwerin, where she already sang important roles. In addition, Etleva
Shemai has also acquired a big name as a concert singer.She regularly
gives concerts with the SWR radio orchestras, some of which were
broadcast on radio. Next, she gave Concerts at the Staatsoper
Wiesbaden, in the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, in the Feierabendhaus
Ludwigshafen, and in the Alte Oper Frankfurt. With the "European
Chamber Orchestra "she sang in Milan Bach's" St. Matthew Passion ", a
production that then resumed in the same years in the following years.
Nearly Everywhere where Etleva Shemai appears, she is criticized -
among others the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Wiesbadener
Kurier and the Badischer Kurier - an exception Aptitude certified. The
largest newspaper in Italy (Corriere della Sera) described her in her
article on the front page as "Top of Matthew's performance with great
talent.

I've been Etleva Shemai's vocal student for about 8 months and the only thing I can say is that it was one of the best vocal-learning experiences I've ever had. Etleva is not only an amazing singer and teacher but also a kind, professional, and empathetic person, who teaches you how to perfect your singing skills with custom exercises. We've been working on emission, support, and line on a technical level and also on performance and expression. As a perfectionist she gets into the detail on every aspect she wants to be working on to ensure that we give our 100% when we sing. Even though we've been working on classical technique, I've been able to apply this technique to the pop-music repertoire and get amazing results, therefore anyone can learn a lot from Etleva. I am so grateful to have had the chance to learn from Etleva's experience and I definitely recommend her singing lessons.

Etleva helped prepare my daughter for her Vocal Performance and Musical Theatre college auditions in a very short period of time. She improved her voice technique greatly. Etleva's classical voice training and performing experience are paired with the best vocal coaching skills. We highly recommend her!
