About Institut StimmKunst

 

This program offers operatic singers specialised training in all aspects of opera singing. These days it is not enough to be prepared vocally. Preparation in all areas and aspects of being a singer is required now. An aspiring young singer needs guidance and direction.

If you are a young singer at the beginning of an operatic career and feel you need support and proper mentorship to help you in your endeavours.

INSTITUT STIMMKUNST OFFERS YOU:

Singing lessons, where you learn the Swedish-Italian vocal technique with which great masters have sung successfully for a long time, such as Kirsten Flagstad, Brigit Nilsson, Jussi Björling and others.

The Swedish-Italian singing technique consists of exercises focusing on “Chiaroscuro”, i.e. creating resonating round tone through all your voice registers.

Role preparation, study and prepare for future roles.

Stagecraft coaching, how to move on stage and all aspects of stagecraft.

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

Performance opportunities in master classes and public concerts.

Mentorship and coaching, in all aspects of singing and performance.

Rehabilitation for singers with vocal problems, promotion of vocal health, how to take care of your voice.

Preparing for auditions, performances and concerts.

In numerous master classes, my team and I will work together to refine your acting and vocal-musical skills in a nurturing and practical way.  Preparing you fully for future auditions, concerts and operatic roles.
