“Vera Wenkert is a fantastic teacher, a wonderful person with an enormous knowledge of the voice and a fine ear that nothing escapes. She teaches Swedish-Italian vocal technique, the most famous exponent of which is David L. Jones. With this technique a voice becomes healthy, strong and stays young until high age. I have always had problems and nobody could really help me.
After a fair year with Vera, everything runs like butter. From every lesson I take something new with me, which I can really understand and practice at home. Because the instructions are very precise and clear. Vera knows exactly which exercise she achieves what with and she always recognizes immediately where a problem lies and how to solve it. I am very happy and grateful that I have found Vera, that I don’t have to travel halfway around the world and can finally take lessons regularly again.”

“Studying with Vera Wenkert has completely changed my life. I turned up a confused lyric soprano, feeling this was not my voice type. Within the first lesson, Vera could hear exactly what my true voice type is. Now, 2 years later, I am a blossoming Dramatic Soprano. Everything feels the way it is meant to feel.
Vera’s teaching is incredibly detailed. She can hear if the root of the tongue is blocking the sound, or if the jaw is too tense, the breath not low enough. She has
the ability to pick up on these problems so quickly, and deal with them in and efficient and patient way.
During her Masterclasses, I have seen her meet many international singers with many problems. She is so kind and open with them. I see them feel immediately relaxed, resulting in a quicker response from them to what she is asking them to do. She is so dedicated to singing, students always receive 100% from her. Her non-judgemental, professional and beautiful character, make lessons and Masterclasses an utter joy to be in. I would encourage singers to sign up for her Masterclasses. You will learn so much about the technique of singing in a comfortable, happy and professional environment.»
