Helen combines key skills as a vocal teacher which I had been looking for with other teachers in vain. She creates an atmosphere that is liberating, encourages a joy of playfulness and at the same time insists on the agreed exercises and repertoire.
Knapp 10 Lektionen weiter bin ich erstaunt, was ich alles bereits gelernt habe. Das liegt neben meiner Begeisterung am Jazz und Folk klar an der Art, wie Helen Musik und Gesang vermittelt.
Her commitment is unparalleled; she documents my learning, promotes my abilities in an unfathomable way – thus technique, emotional expression and personal presence are combined and can be experienced directly.
Working with Helen is an experience of high professionality, high empathy and high performance…. you want to know, what your voice really sounds like?….. I know the place to be…. thanks Helen for one year of new sounds, new emotions and a lot of new self confidence.
I love the way you express pure joy and deep esteem when I’ve achieved something difficult with my piano work, or when I present one of my compositions to you: this makes me feel so good and is a huge motivation to continue my work.
Helen is a very versatile musician, singer and songwriter. With all her gifts combined with her beautifully compassionate, encouraging and positive way, she can support you in a wide range of topics fantastically well. And you surely think what you’re doing is fun. I always leave my songwriting lessons with a smile on my face.
Helen possesses all the key ingredients required from a teacher, i.e. the ability to recognise/challenge talent, read/motivate her students, foster confidence for beginners, technical genius, plenty of patience and a human touch at all times. It is a true pleasure working with her
… I only really came to appreciate Helen’s multi-facetted talents as a musician, composer, teacher, voice-coach and mentor at her bi-annual student „Soirées“, where her students share what they have worked on: The diversity and quality of Helen’s range simply left me speechless.
I enjoy Helen’s style of teaching very much and I’ve come a long way since starting with her as my voice teacher. what I particularly like is her openness to all kinds of music genres and the way she brings me to do stuff I thought I’d never be able to do – like improvisation.
With her professional tools for voice work, her intuition, and teaching skills, she’s an absolute enabler!
I’m so grateful I’ve taken up playing the piano again. I am thus enabled to continue from where I had given up in resignation as a young adult. Thank you Helen, for opening this treasure box for me! It fills my heart with joy and makes me truly happy!
