My name is Leni and I have been an performer since I was 12 and been teaching more than 8 years now and I worked with different kind of „voice-interested” people, different settings (groups, single), levels, ages (10-65), focus (performance, computer, choir, pop/jazz vocals).
So everybody is welcome to contact me! My teaching languages are English or German (because I come from Austria).
I teach in Amager – Kobenhavn S!
I passed my studies Jazzvocals and pedagogy (with Elfi Aichinger & Agnes Heginger) and Computer Music Studies (with Andreas Weixler) at Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität Linz, Austria with focus on music production, performance and composition.
At the moment I am doing a Master at RMC Kopenhagen.
I am working as singer, songwriter/composer and electronic artist in different groups and solo in Jazz, Pop as also in electronic music.
On a regular basis I am also working as free editor for radio Ö1/Austrian broadcasting-ORF and as music educator.
About my teaching
Singing is cleansing, it is expression, it is fun!
As a vocal coach I am including technique from Jazz/Classical/Pop and a lot of knowledge about breathing. I believe that knowledge of body as also about the functions of our voice „box” is very important to start working with the voice and to really enjoy it. With that basics you will start to feel comfortable, you will know what happens when you use breath as resource, when you start to experiment with dynamics, sounds, voice qualities and of course tonality.
Performance and interpretation
I am also putting a lot of focus on performance and interpretation – As I am a trained Jazz vocalist I love to improvise and interpret.
I think that everybody, who is interested finds his/her way of expression – either more in interpreting, sounding, writing and singing lyrics or more improvisation etc… I am trying to give inputs and to support each kind of way and personality. Coz’ that is what it is all about – voice and personality!
How a typical lesson with me could look like
– checking up 😉
– bodywork and breathing
– warming up the voice, technique
– songs and singing and/or songwriting
– working on the focus that is important to you
I am also giving lessons in pop piano accompaniment for singers and songwriters. Just send me your questions.
I am looking forward to hearing from you! Don’t hesitate to ask or share your wishes with me!
