See you there!

Why do we do this?
We believe the voice is an amazing instrument when used in a natural way. For many singers it is a challenge to know precisely how to use the already exsiting body knowledge to their voice’s advantage when they aspire to be great singers. This is why we offer two masterclasses focussing on singing methods that think out of the box and which help us to find our natural voice:
The Voice Construction Method (by Maurits Draijer) and Lichtenberg Method (by Marzieh Reyhani)
More info on the Academy page.

Waarom doen we dit?
De stem in een uitzonderlijk instrument wanneer je hem gebruikt op een natuurlijke manier. Voor veel zangers kan dit best een uitdaging zijn. Daarom organiseren we twee masterclasses voor zangers en coachings voor koorzangers waar twee zang methodes worden geintroduceerd die wat meer “out of the box” denken en jou kunnen helpen bij het vinden van jouw unieke stemgeluid. Ga naar de Academy pagina voor meer informatie!
