GROUP 1:

This session is for beginning singers (No lessons before necessary, just starting with a group/choir/band or when you just sing at home)

Our goals: Let’s set the basics!

We focus on basic vocal techniques and song interpretation. We will sing with the whole group (exercises) and you will also get the chance (option) to sing alone. You can bring one song as practice song (an instrumental of a song you find challenging and suitable as practice song)

We will take the time to listen to a part of it and Floor will advice you on what technical aspects you should focus on how to work and study to make the song sound better. You will hear other singers sing and get advises what will also be informative for yourself. If you have specific questions: ask them!

This masterclass is there to inspire you to explore your sound, better your technique and to feel the music even more than before. You should pick my brain as much as you can! :-) In 2 hours there is a lot you can learn but without studying nothing happens. To remember what it is we did I film the session and offer you the video afterwards for €5,00.

The masterclass will be in English!

GROUP 2:

This session is for more experienced singers. (Singers who perform or have performed regularly, experience with lessons welcome but not necessary)

In this masterclass I will tell you a lot about vocal techniques, from the basics to more detailed and advanced information. Our goal: a technical check-up. What do you know and what do you use? This will be different for everyone. We will do exercises together and try out different singing styles and sounds.

And we will look into song interpretation. How can you make a song come alive? Tell the story and convince your listeners about the emotion behind it. I will sing examples but will also ask some singers from the group to sing. Everyone can bring one song with him or her to sing, in case you get chosen to show the group what you can do and what you want to learn. If you prefer not too you can let me know, of course. The amount of singers who can sing individual will depend on the size of group. (You can bring one song as practice song. It has to be an instrumental of a song you find challenging and suitable as practice song)
