Fifteen years of experience in German opera houses (including four years as the musical director of the Young Artist’s Program at the Komische Oper Berlin) have given me a unique perspective on the development of skills and aptitudes needed by singers at every professional level, from recent graduates to artists with established careers. Together, we will find solutions to musical and technical problems, and every artist will discover the means to realize their potential.
