“MY WORK AS A SINGER WITH 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE SHOWS ME THE DEMANDS AND CHALLENGES THAT SINGERS FACE TODAY. I WANT MY CLIENTS TO HAVE ACCESS TO CUSTOMIZABLE, PERSONALIZED VOCAL COACHING WHENEVER AND WHEREVER POSSIBLE.”
MANY YEARS OF STAGE EXPERIENCE
Whether on television, radio or on stage - in the last 25 years I have performed in over 1000 shows all over Europe. I am not only active on stage, but also behind the scenes: I have been working as a voice coach for over 20 years and offer my international clientele vocal training in English and German.
My goal? I want each of my clients to get the most out of their voices! Exercises individually tailored to singers and keynote speakers help to strengthen the voice and expand the vocal range from the lowest to the highest note - without any breaks or sudden changes in vocal quality.
EDUCATION & INSTITUTE FOR VOCAL ADVANCEMENT (IVA)
After graduating from high school I completed a three-year training at the "Berufsfachschule für Rock- und Popularmusik" in Bavaria as a state-approved director of popular music. My main subject: rock, pop and jazz vocals. Among my lecturers and mentors was Udo Dahmen, who later founded the "Popakademie" in Mannheim. At the "Hochschule für Musik und Theater" in Hamburg I successfully participated in the "Kontaktstudiengang für Popularmusik". During this time I worked closely with Jane Comerford from "Texas Lightening" and Karin Ploog.
I continue to educate myself - in the USA as well as in Europe - and combine my knowledge with my yoga experience and other relaxation techniques. Since 2013 I have been one of the instructors at the Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA), which has its headquarters in the USA. It is an international network of vocal instructors that teaches singers and offers further education and training. The voice teachers of IVA work with internationally successful bands such as "The Killers", "Imagine Dragons", "Panic! at the Disco" and over 30 Broadway stars, as well as for the TV show "The Voice".
My work for the "Institute for Vocal Advancement" is very versatile: As a "Regional Area Coordinator" for Europe and "Area Representative" for Scandinavia I am involved in coordinating the activities for IVA in these countries.
My free time is dedicated to my family and friends, yoga, travelling, wine, food, nature and my cats. Currently I live and work mainly in Germany, Denmark and Sweden.
