Ms Berit Hagen

Qualifications:
I've been a vocal coach and judge on my home country's highest rated vocal competition "Stjernekamp" where I gave masterclasses to professional vocalists. I've also been a "talent scout" and judge in "amateur"competitions in my home country as well. I started my Bel Canto training in 2008 and was coached by the coloratura soprano Elizabeth Hilltout who was coached by the Italian Soprano Aida Meneghelli, who in turn was coached by Maria Callas's "maestra." I've used my classical training to build an international reputation as a metal artist and officially crossed over to classical guitar virtuoso music in late 2013, resulting in an Amazon charting album with classical guitarist Craig Ogden in late 2014. The album features my first recording as an Opera singer, where I perform "Solveig's Song." I now sing more complex arias such as "Der Holle Rache" & "The Bell Aria" from Lakme. I've been teaching vocal students online and in person since 2016.
As a guitarist I've been featured on National TV in my home country, I've shredded Paganini on BBC National Radio, I've played festivals, been featured in countless international mainstream music publications and made official brand videos, commercials and exclusive content for American publications. I'm an internationally acclaimed guitar virtuoso and have been teaching people in person and online since 2012.
Instruments: I'm a Bel-Canto trained coloratura Soprano
and a virtuoso electric guitarist.
Genre/Style(s): Classical Opera Singing

Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


Notes:

I tailor make my lessons for each student ranging from beginner to advanced. I do have a tendency to attract musicians looking for masterclasses, but I wouldn't mind taking in some new students who are absolute beginners :) Vocally I guide my students through the necessary exercises one has to go through in order to master the Bel-Canto technique. I break things down for the student so as to make the lessons more efficient and will expect that my student/s "do their homework." Bel Canto can unlock all your potential as a singer. I myself use the technique to do the coloratura repertory but can detach myself completely from "the classical opera sound" to sing soul and heavy metal. Bel Canto gives you flexibility and versatility, but it takes commitment and a willingness to work!
As a guitarist I focus a lot on creativity, since electric guitarists normally want to write their own music, or virtuosity, as a number of guitarists approach me when they "feel stuck." Bad habits can be re-adjusted so as to make a player faster. I focus a lot on health guitar-wise as this is a much neglected field. I will start off my lesson by asking the student to play a piece of music for me, I will then be able to asses what the student need to work on and will move on from there! :)
