Madeleine is an amazing teacher! Super professional, and she knows so much about singing technique, so she can give you specific and very helpful pointers to make your voice sound the best. She also has a great ear and is so good at singing herself! Additionally, she dedicates time outside of class to provide you with resources and exercises to help you practice and get better. Would definitely recommend taking lessons with her! Already have noticed my singing getting so much better :)

Madeleine has been a great teacher! She is very skilled in finding the best ways and exercises to help you attain your singing goals. I have had only 4 lessons with her and I am (as well as my family) already noticing my singing voice improving!

Madeleine gave me singing lessons for about three years and I have learned so much about how to use my voice properly and my singing has really improved. She also taught me how to accompany my singing on the piano, which has made singing at home a lot more fun. I could always choose which songs to sing and she always gave me very good and helpful tips on how to sound more like the original artist, but I could also improvise if I wanted to. The thing I enjoyed most was that I had the chance to record a few of the songs which we practiced quite professionally. I can really recommend her as a voice and piano instructor!

I was Madleine's singing student for a year when she was still living in Berlin. She took away the fear of singing and showed me so many great tricks and also recorded piano pieces on tape so that I can practice it at home. We practiced Amy Winehouse, Ella Fitzgerald and many other wonderful pieces and she loves her job and you can tell that. I can recommend her 100% and like to watch her videos on Youtube again and again. The cover version of Aaliya is magic. Maddie, I wish you al the best and hope to be your student again, when you come back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been taking lessons with Madeleine for over three years by now. It has always been a great pleasure to sing with her.
She is an excellent teacher, who always created a fun and joyful atmosphere during classes.
She is very understanding and always gives good advices and support if necessary – while having difficulties finding the right pitch, as well as struggles with jitters.
I felt always very comfortable with her and I can conscientiously recommend her to everyone who wants to improve their singing and vocal skills.
Thank you so much Madeleine for the past three years, it has been my biggest pleasure.

Singing has always been my passion - last year I finally decided to work on my voice and singing skills in a more professional way and am very happy I found Madeleine as my vocal coach. She is very competent, has a lot of helpful and sometimes unconventional techniques at hand and is very flexible when it comes to personal goals and preferences. Most importantly she knows how to push you just the right amount so you can overcome your fears, end up not taking yourself too seriously and can unfold your full potential. She's a warm-hearted, fun person that I can genuinely recommend as a vocal coach :-)!

Madeleine is a great teacher! She thaught me singing techniques, how to warm up and helped me to understand my own "instrument". She gave me such great and concrete advice that I suddenly was able to do something what I thought I couldn't (e.g. produce a certain sound). And she is just a very nice person who makes you feel comfortable and empowered. Big THANK YOU! :)

Madeleine helped me discover parts of my voice that I didn't know existed. With each lesson my range grew more and more. It was my goal to have a catalogue of songs that I feel really comfortable singing. Madeleine helped me achieve that by putting in the effort and time to find songs that fit my voice and by finding the right key for me to sing them in (and adjusting it if needed). At the same time she made sure to regularly push me in a motivating and respectful way, leaving me feel empowered after each new lesson.

I have taken voice lessons in the past with a different vocal coach. While those were always fun, there were limits to what the coach could teach me. Madeleine on the other hand always understands what the things are that I wanna learn: From learning how to sing riffs and runs like my favorite R&B singers, to doing creative adlibs and improvisations or working on improving my feel for rhythm and timing. Madeleine knows what she's doing, as she is a gifted singer and musician herself. I would recommend her lessons to anyone who wants to work on their voice!

Madeleine did an amazing job! I was just about to go on my first live tour with my band and she really helped me to improve my voice, be safer in high register and showed me ways to warm up my voice that are easy to use. Even after 4 lessons everybody in my band and myself heard and felt the difference. I'm really thankful that I found and would recommend it to everybody who is thinking about vocal lessons. It was an amazing experience! Thank you Madeleine! xo

The best singing teacher you can find! She has a really trained ear and notices really fast on which points you‘re struggling. She has the best abilities to teach you easy tricks and techniques to approve you‘re singing - sometimes small shades can change everything. After you try out (some sometimes funny exercises) you will learn to understand your voice and yourself a bit more, often discovering what you‘ve done „wrong“ for a long time. It can be mind blowing.
Besides her professional qualities, Madeleine Rauch is a really sweet and funny person, with whom you will never feel uncomfortable, even if you‘re not the best singer. She gives advice, encouraging you, discovering your potentials, never giving you the feeling that you sound „strange“ or not good enough. After a lesson you will feel lighter. Always had a smile on my face after leaving.
Couldn’t have imagined a better singing teacher.

I‘m very happy with Madeleine and her vocal technique. It was so much fun to explore more possibilities to use my voice and to play with it, to use it in many different ways. She taught me how to sing strong, without using to much energy and not getting tired to fast...
She heared every single mistake I made and corrected it immediately.
You‘ll get the best lessons with Madeleine.

Madeleine is a great voice teacher, skilled and relaxed at the same time. I always enjoyed my lessons with her. As a music teacher I wanted to feel more comfortable singing in front of my students and Madeleine helped me to build my confidence for that matter. Also, with her I was able to expand my vocal range and improve my singing techniques, so that I could sing some of my favorite songs (e.g. by Florence and the Machine, Adele or Tori Amos). Even if I came to the lesson feeling rather worn out after a long day I always left feeling better and lighter  Thanks Madeleine! Hope to see you again when (if) you return to Berlin. Miss you -

Madeleine was my voice teacher in Berlin and helped me to develop my RnB voice since I came from a classical voice training backround. She helped me to understand important differences in the two genres and showed me great exercises to become more stable and comfortable with my different ranges and voice qualities. My pitch became cleaner and it became much easier for me to use my gentle voice, since my voice has a lot of twang, which enabled me to easier move across my ranges. As a teacher Madeleine will be open to your needs and desires for your voice and will help you find the exercises necessary to reach your goals. Madeleine is a lovely teacher and it was always fun to work with her. I do regret she is so far away now and I will have to find a new teacher, but I am happy she is living her dream.
