Since 2011 I have been happy to help others with their singing and musicality, whether by building good vocal and breathing habits, exploring new repertoire, solving technical issues or providing accompaniment for singers to prepare pieces. If you are looking for voice lessons with a skilled pianist, especially in the areas of Lied/song and early music, feel free to contact me to schedule an appointment. I teach in Berlin, Germany.

I have posted here accompaniments to some standard VOCAL EXERCISES that I frequently use, so that my students can repeat them between lessons.
