Biography

The voice is a much sturdier instrument than most people think. If used correctly, it can fill a theatre without amplification, can go on for hours without tiring and can produce all sorts of incredible and weird sounds. But, however strong it is, it is a unique instrument that, when broken, is very difficult to fix. This is why having a reliable singing technique is so very important. Whether you are an amateur singer, a choral singer or a young aspiring musician, if you sing on regular occasions, you should think about vocal health.

I started my musical training at the age of six making the most of the Belgian part time music school system. I was too young to start singing lessons, so I chose the instrument that was least likely to go out of tune. Even though I liked playing, it became clear over the years that the piano would serve me better when someone else played it, and so I came to stand in front of it a lot more than sitting behind it. I took singing lessons with Ann Krijnen until I finished High School.

When the time finally came to make some important life choices I opted to play it safe, so I decided to study Art History at Ghent University. However, life hit me with a good strike of irony during a musicology field trip to the Flemish Opera and standing in the middle of the stage made me realise that singing was what I wanted to do.

I started my first year of classical singing at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp in 2007 and finished my masters degree with distinction in 2012. The following year, I completed the one year specialised teachers degree at the same institution.

The part-time music education system in Belgium requires teachers to have a degree in music as well as a specific teaching degree. It creates jobs for musicians and maintains a high standard of music education. During the one year of doing a teaching degree students are required to study a plethora of pedagogic theory-based subjects. They also have to complete a set amount of hours of supervised teaching.

Having done all of this, as well as teaching both privately and at several music schools, I have built up a vast amount of teaching experience working with people of all standards and all ages.
