I give private singing lessons in Bern for beginners and professionals in all musical styles. In addition, I am frequently invited as a guest lecturer at colleges and music schools for various CVT courses, workshops, and master classes. At the Hochschule der Künste Bern (HKB) I work as a lecturer in the degrees courses "MAS Pop & Rock" and "CAS Popgesang".
I really enjoy supporting singers from all kinds of musical backgrounds.
CVT (Complete Vocal Technique)CVT ("Complete Vocal Technique") is an innovative and groundbreaking method for everyone who's interested in working with the voice - professional singers as well as beginners.
With this clearly structured and highly effective method, it is possible to produce all sounds the human voice can make (including vocal effects like distortion or growling) in a healthy way.
CVT covers topics as:
- The four vocal modes (Neutral, Curbing, Overdrive & Edge)
- Effects (Distortion, Creaking, Growling, Grunting, Vibrato Vocal Breaks, Vibrato, Screams, and more)
Since summer 2011 I am an authorized CVT teacher.

I give CVT introductory courses for choirs, music colleges and school, continuing education for teachers, ensembles and other interested vocal groups. The courses are aimed at all vocal levels - from beginner to professional. Also, all styles and ages are welcome!
A CVT introductory course usually lasts 5 hours and includes a theoretical part, where I present the basic knowledge of CVT, and a practical part, in which all participants can try out the techniques.
If you would like to book a CVT introductory course for one day, please contact me directly. firstname.lastname@example.org
In regular intervals I offer masterclasses for a specific vocal subject. These 2 - 3-hour evening classes are aimed at singers who have already taken part in a CVT introductory course or have otherwise gained experience with CVT. The courses include a theoretical introductory part to serve as an input and then a practical part where each participant has the opportunity to work on his / her individual issues, questions or songs. The whole group is always involved in the learning process. To be informed about my current Masterclasses, sign up for my newsletter.
I love teaching groups! Nothing can replace the dynamics and the positive energy that comes from many people being together, singing and discovering their voices.
I come to your choir or ensemble and coach you in vocal technique, interpretation or intonation. If you have a group of at least four people, I give you a workshop or a "tailor made" course, ie a CVT introductory course, a masterclass in a desired topic, etc.
For those who cannot travel to Bern, I offer solo lessons via Skype. This may sound a bit unusual, but I do make good experiences with great result with it. It is an advantage if we can work directly from person to person at least once before the skype lessons. However, this is not mandatory.
