Vocal coaching

Besides singing and writing music I’m also an active vocal coach. Check it out:

Metal Factory

64259_179819285500967_1173423693_nThe Metal Factory is the world’s first metal music education, hosted at Dynamo in Eindhoven. I’m honoured to be part of the Metal Factory team as vocal coach, besides awesome musicians and teachers like Ruud Jolie, Rob van der Loo, Johan van Stratum, Stef Brocks, Danny Tunker, Bart Hennephof, Boudewijn Bonebakker and Daan Holthuis.

The Metal Factory is an awesome place to be if you want to build a career in music, with a focus on metal! If you speak Dutch (required) and are interested in auditioning check out the following websites:

Private lessons

I’m also teach privately at my home in Eindhoven on Monday and Wednesday evenings (from 19:30 to 22:30 CET). Skype lessons are also an option, provided you have a good microphone and internet connection.

At the moment I’m taking a break from teaching private lessons; I expect to resume them later in the year. Join my newsletter to stay up to date, or send me a message through the Contact section if you want to know about my rates an availability.

What can you expect?

I love teaching! I’m totally convinced that everyone, with the right amount of passion and the will to work hard, can learn how to sing beautifully. If I’m to teach you you can be sure I’ll do my best to make you feel totally comfortable to explore your instrument. I will give you tools and tricks to make the most out of your voice, and ways for you to hold on to that new knowledge so you can sing with confidence and focus on the emotion of singing! I specialize in classical singing, as well as metal, rock and pop styles.

My singing background

How does my singing technical background look like? For the past fifteen years I’ve been working hard to improve my technique and learn more and more about the human voice and its possibilities. I have classical“singing roots”, having taken private classical singing lessons for about twelve years with amazing coaches like Mexican baritone Oscar Martínez and Dutch tenor Harry Ruijl. After moving to Holland I’ve expanded my knowledge greatly by immersing myself into modern techniques like CVT and the Estill Voice Method.

I’ve had the honour of being one of the first Universal Voice Masters graduating from the Universal Voice Institute, founded by Alberto ter Doest in Amsterdam; his Universal Voice Guide, being released later this year, is the most practical and useful singing method I’ve ever encountered! I’m also currently proudly following the Universal Voice Teacher course, which I hope to complete next January.
