Nowadays, singers are entering a market where opera houses are forced to save time and money. As a young professional singer who wants to have a long-term career, it is essential that you are prepared artistically and musically and that you can cope with everyday life on stage with self-confidence and personal responsibility.
To be successful on a stage as an artist and especially as an opera singer, you need many skills, including
• A solid vocal and singing technique
• Musicality and rhythm
• Excellent stage presence and convincing acting skills
• Psychological abilities to cope with stressful situations
• Excellent knowledge of the process and expectations of an opera production
• Convincing skills in dealing with agents, coaches and conductors.
Many students, and even professional singers, have talents for some of these requirements. It really takes more to bring it all together. In the “StimmKunst Method” all of these requirements are brought together. For this reason, there is no universal recipe for all singers. The only way to success is to offer lessons tailored to the individual. This holistic approach requires great competence from teachers based on experience.
In my opinion, in order to develop a well-founded plan for individual needs, a teacher brings a lot of their own experience to the table. A well-trained ear, combined with personal stage experience and brilliant teaching skills, are the foundations on which the “StimmKunst Method” is based.
