About

People have always fascinated me. So individual, so different and at the same time so the same and yet so harmonious. What would a world full of the same people be like? Exactly this difference in the tension between group membership and self-determination is what I find so interesting. I would like to give you the ideas and possibilities you have found to be able to open and sometimes close your own voice, yourself, thoughts, feelings, breathing air and body spaces.

My way

I was born in Stockholm and came to Germany when I was almost four years old. I know that I have breathed and felt different air and I can empathize with other nationalities so well. After the first state examination in music (violin) and German at the Hochschule für Musik Rheinland and the University of Cologne and my opera singing studies at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, I have been dealing with voices and moods for decades. I have been happily running the voice studio in Mülheim an der Ruhr since 2010 and have been able to work with people for 30 years, promoting them vocally, challenging them and supporting them on their way. I am very grateful for that!

international experience

I have worked with international teachers and coaches in different countries for my further vocal and pedagogical development. I took lessons in New York, Warsaw, Porto, Mallorca and at the Verona Arena, played in France, Italy and Poland and sang in Zurich, Dubrovnik and Manila. I have experienced and had to sing a wide variety of vocal ideals, singing styles and languages ​​- there are so many small differences in how languages ​​sound, how they are formed and how they affect the body. These incredibly multifaceted experiences now greatly enrich my international teaching activities. With 30 years of teaching experience, I can now quickly feel where is a problem and successfully help to release tension, open spaces and thoughts when speaking or singing. I am particularly proud of my great students, who have already become voice teachers (in England), singing teachers, speech therapists, doctors and also musical singers. I am so proud of you!

Learn from music and people from all over the world

Working with the voice is a craft, an art form and a sport at the same time. Through my experience in music, as a singer and conductor, I have learned to create moods and use them in a targeted manner. It is incredibly important to know and recognize which space I have to open up and occupy within myself before I can create the desired mood. This is the manual part.

Using the right muscles in the optimal dosage, being able to “play” them, using micro-muscles in isolation and consciously interrupting other muscle connections at the same time: often doing opposite things in the body at the same time – this requires mental clarity and physical condition. All this at high altitudes and for a longer period of time is very sporty.

The possibilities of actively shaping mood curves and atmospheres with voice and communication are artistic and very creative: Liven up conversations and presentations through lively communication, or calmly and boldly convey factual information. Keeping the other person’s attention through multifaceted communication and being in real contact with him. Or to convey clarity and appreciative opposing points of view to the other person through short and crisp 3-word sentences. The various means of conversation are almost limitless.

By working with groups of people, with musicians, in orchestras, ensembles and choirs as a violinist and soprano, as a soloist and conductor, I have learned to recognize group dynamic processes quickly and also had to learn painfully what we humans are like and what it means, of course , to lead groups and to position oneself clearly and flexibly at the same time.

Learning never stops! Many elements that I can combine in my work form a wealth of experience that I would like to share with you. I love my job and am infinitely grateful that I can live my passion, pass on my knowledge, train, teach and sing. That’s exactly why I can guarantee you with a clear conscience that I will always do my best for you!

Feel free to convince yourself.

Yours, Claudia Duschner
