The International Institute StimmKunst

At the international StimmKunst Institute you have the opportunity to have your voice, your musicality and your stage craft trained by the best. If you want to work on your full speaking voice and your likeable appearance, get in touch with me.

Here are the offers that the international institute StimmKunst has to offer you:

Our programme covers all aspects of voice training and use and comprehensive support for public performances and for everyday stage life. The offer is aimed at professional singers as well as voice students who want to use their voice specifically and get the best out of it, as well as people who like to sing or have to speak a lot and want to use their voice specifically.

Singing lessons: You learn with the Method SONARAVERA® Exercises that focus on “Chiaroscuro”. This creates a resonant round tone through all your voice registers. Famous singers such as Kirsten Flagstad, Brigit Nilsson, Jussi Björling and others have sung successfully for a long time. I learned this technique with Birgit Nilsson, Berit Lindholm, Jean Cox, Kari Loevaas and with David Jones over 10 years. I am an associate teacher at the David L. Jones Studio in New York.

From these many experiences, with my own research into the voice and from the knowledge and skills from my opera career, I have developed my own Method SONARAVERA®

Role preparation – vocal and musical coaching: Rehearse pieces and prepare future roles.

Stage craft coaching: How to move on stage and all aspects of stage craft.

German language: Articulation of language, its nuances, especially in the repertoire of Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss.

Performance preparation and opportunities in Master classes and public concerts.

Mentoring and Coaching in all aspects of singing, interpretation and career. You learn to develop your speaking voice and your authentic charisma with the SONARAVERA® method. This is how you connect your speaking voice to your inner voice, and your voice will embody your whole being – not just a part.

Rehabilitation for singers with voice problems, promoting vocal health, caring for the voice.

Preparation for auditions: How to prepare for auditions, performances and concerts.

Recording supervisor for demo recordings (Video and Audio): Professional accompaniment of recordings in a film or sound studio saves a lot of time, money and energy. The recording should convince the stages and agencies of this world. The perfect presentation as a singer also includes the professional technical preparation of one’s own singing voice. Start your singing career with a solid recording in the studio.

In numerous master classes, my team and I work together to refine your acting and vocal-musical skills in an uplifting and practical way. We will fully prepare you for future auditions, concerts and opera performances.

Chenier), Marie Wozzeck, Amelia (Ballo in Maschera), Leonora (Forza del Destino), Abigaille (Nabucco), Lady Macbeth, Madama Butterfly, Turandot, Tosca, Venus-Elisabeth (Tannhäuser), Elsa (Lohengrin), Sieglinde (Walküre), Senta (Holländer), Brünnhilde (Götterdämmerung / Siegfried) and last but not least Isolde and many more.

And as an experienced singing teacher and mentor, my teaching speciality is helping singers to develop their strengths in an open, honest and uplifting atmosphere. That’s why we’re on a first-name basis in class.
