Overview

I am a dedicated vocal coach, musician, singer, songwriter and founder of "Vocals on Stage".
At the age of 6 I started playing Cello and discovered my passion for music but my main focus quickly became the instrument voice. I studied for years at the Unique Voice Studios - a private school for contemporary singing in Vienna and have studied Jazz vocals at the Schubert Conservatory in Vienna as well as private vocal coaches Rocio Guitard, Romana Caren Lakinger, Sandy Cressman, Monika Ballwein and others.
I have a Master of Science Degree from the University of Vienna and speak English, German, Bulgarian and French.

Since 2005 I have been studying and teaching "Mix" - a vocal technique which teaches students how to transition smoothly between chest voice and head voice and receive the full benefits of “both worlds”: the natural and powerful sound of the chest voice, and the beauty and range of the head voice.
I teach contemporary music, Pop, Rock, Soul, Blues, Jazz, R'n'B, Country and Musical.
For the past 8 years I have been working as a vocal instructor in Vienna, San Francisco and Los Angeles, giving private and group lessons.

Working with Radina is such a pleasure! She is extremely patient and kind. I truly enjoy the different methods she provides to help me improve my voice. Another great thing is her recorded lessons. I can always go back and review our lesson and go over things I needed help with using the recordings. She's also incredibly flexible with my hectic schedule, which is such a huge plus! I highly recommend her. Thank you so much for everything, Radina. You're amazing!

This is it!

I've been taking lessons with Radina for a few months and I'm super happy with the progress I've made so far. I didn't know anything about head voice, chest voice, mix and now it's all starting to make sense. I'm not afraid to sing higher notes which I always wanted to be able to do!

Radina is a highly professional and nice teacher, she really understands what is going on in a singers voice and mind and she hears everything.

I always look forward to my next lesson :)

great

My daughter has been taking lessons with Radina for a few months now and we are amazed with the progress she has made. She is so friendly, encouraging and she hears everything. My daughter was a very shy singer in the beginning but somehow Radina managed to make her open up and sing freely and in September she sang at her first recital and it was wonderful.

Radina always records the lesson and sends it to us so that my daughter can practice with it and sometime she even get to record a song in the recording booth.

5 stars for Radina and I can definitely recommend her to everyone who want to take vocal lessons!

Using your true voice!

I am a karaoke queen so I didn't realize my potential until I started taking lessons with Radina. I basically learned to sing by ear not realizing that I would try to mimick singers instead of using my natural voice to make a song my own.

Radina gave me excercises to work on. She makes it very easy to understand. Radina works with you at your level and builds you up to help unlock your true potential!
