Cambridge Singing Teacher Performance Coach Choral Director
One-to-one lessons can help choral singers find a larger vocal range, clearer tone
and greater ease of production so their voices don’t tire during rehearsals and performances.
Singers can learn amongst other things how to start phrases cleanly, how to sing
forte and piano without strain and how to execute fast passages.
‘I had my first lesson with Katharina while she was working as vocal coach to the
Saffron Walden Choral Society. Attempts to use my trained but very out-of-practice
voice in a large choir had led to over-singing, strain, and an ever-widening ‘break’
I found impossible to sing through. From the first lesson, Katharina listened intently,
understood the problems, and was positive about solving them. She offered insights,
explanations and exercises which, with regular practice, have released real resonance
and stability across my whole range. I am enjoying my choral singing more than ever.’
‘Katharina is an outstanding teacher with infinite patience and the ability to present
the same concept differently until I get it. She is always encouraging and inspiring.
This has been a wonderful opportunity for me and I wish I'd had the chance years
and years ago. Thank you.’ Rosemary
‘I can’t thank you enough for all the tips and information you managed to impart
in such a fascinating, gripping way in such a short space of time. Everyone seemed
as fascinated by what you were saying as I was and you could hear a pin drop throughout.
What a fantastic evening! Thank you so very much.’ Isobel
Vocal coaching for choirs
Vocal workshops for entire choirs introduce the basics of good voice production in
a group setting - less daunting for many adults than the prospect of one-to-one lessons!
These sessions are tailored to fit each choir, depending on the style of music they
perform and the age and musical background of the singers. For more information,
please contact me.
‘On behalf of myself and the choir, I want to say a huge thank you for last evening
- it was an absolute joy. I have already picked up lots of good feedback and enthusiastic
responses along the lines: 'Wow, I could really feel that making a difference when
