Worum es bei uns geht

We are Simply Tuning-inđŸŽ¶ - an international singing group with members from all over the world. We primarily rehearse in English and German, but all languages are welcome. This group is like no other in Berlin. The group takes part in weekly singing lessons as well as a weekly rehearsal for our choir.đŸ–ïžđŸšŽ But for us, this is more than just a singing group. It’s a group of friends that can gather together and make memories, and all friendly, music loving people are welcome to join. We sing with body movement, emotion and without shame. We encourage people to sing with us, to improve, and to believe in the unique beauty of their voice. Everyone is welcome to join us, no matter which level you are at. If that all sounds interesting, please come by! We have group voice lessons on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and our choir rehearses on Tuesdays after the group lesson. We also have an Open Mic Night once per month as well, that everyone is invited to.

Please check out our social media to see what we've been up to!

Gesangsworkshop: Was ist Belt-Stimme eigentlich?

Hallo! Mein Name ist Jared, ich komme aus den USA und ich bin ein ausgebildeter OpernsĂ€nger, Synchronsprecher und Gesangslehrer hier in Berlin. Ich habe mit einem neuen Konzept angefangen: Gesangsunterricht in Gruppen! Ich habe oft gehört, dass der Gesang zu lernen einfach zu teuer ist und jetzt in Gruppen ist das möglich etwas GĂŒnstiges anzubieten. Die Stunde kostet nichts, aber es gibt eine empfohlene Spende von 10 Euro. Es ist mir wichtiger, dass Leute kommen, die Lust haben, als geld zu verdienen. Wenn jemand unbedingt singen lernen will und kein Geld hat, ist das kein Ding. Der Workshop ist fĂŒr alle, egal die Erfahrung. Gesundes Singen ist universal, egal was man singt und ich kenne niemanden, der das immer Perfekt macht. Ich hoffe mitzuteilen, was ich durch Erfahrung und Studium gelernt habe und denn mit euch was auszuprobieren. Es ist sehr schwierig, vor Anderen (besonders Fremden!) zu singen und böse Kommentare sind ĂŒberhaupt nicht willkommen! Niemand wird bezwungen, alleine vor Anderen zu singen, aber das wĂ€re möglich, wenn ihr das möchtet. Wenn der Unterricht dir gefĂ€llt, bitte schau dir unsere andere Veranstaltung am Dienstag an. Wir machen zusammen einen Choir mit der englischen Gruppe. Ich bringe eine Mini-Keyboard als Begleitung mit und wir werden 2 Lieder singen und lernen, wie man das schön macht. Alle, die Lust haben sind willkommen und die Stunde wird auf Deutsch angeboten. Englisch ist meine Muttersprache, und wenn ihr lieber den Unterricht auf Englisch gerne hĂ€ttet, haben wir auch Donnerstags Unterricht auf Englisch. Fragen auf Englisch sind immer willkommen. Ich werde auch Tee dabei haben, fĂŒr die, die ein bisschen Öl fĂŒr die Stimme brauchen :P. Wie immer, der Plan steht unten. Bis dann! Jared ---------------------------------------------------------------- 10 Min: Vorstellung: Belt-Stimme ist wenn man mit der Bruststimme hoch singt. Das ist die Technik, die man hĂ€ufig bei Pop und Rockmusik verwendet. Die hohe Töne klingen mĂ€chtig damit! Wir mĂŒssen aber aufpassen. Man kann die Stimme damit schĂ€den, wenn man zu viel von der Stimme ausnutzt. 10 Min: Einsingen Wir singen ein, mit Übungen, die hoch in die Bruststimme kommt. 15 Min: Trinklied: Jetzt trink mer noch a Flascherl Wein Deswegen lernst du den Gesang! Wir singen ein traditionalles Trinklied mit voller Bruststimme! 25 Min: At last - Etta James Und jetzt etwas komplett anders. Kontrast macht das schön. Starke hohe Töne und auch schöne Kopfstimme. Das singen wir schön!

Group singing lessons: What is Belting and how do I do it?

Everyone make sure you note that we have a new location for the meetup! We're now by Prenzlauer Allee, so check that out before you come! Hi! My name is Jared from the US and I'm a voice teacher, professional classical singer, and voice actor here in Berlin. I'm beginning with a new concept of offering group voice lessons, to keep prices low for people who want to learn to sing. The class is free, but there is a recommended donation of 10 euros for those that can donate. Having people that are interested and enthusiastic is the most important thing for me, and if money is an issue, please come. It truly is a donation. This class will be for people of all singing abilities (including first timers!), and the concepts taught are universal and relatable. Singing in front of others is a very vulnerable thing to do, so those giving negative judgment will be heavily discouraged. There will be no mandatory singing alone in front of the class, but that will be available for those that want it. I will bring a small travel keyboard, and we will sing 2 songs together and talk about how to make them sound as best as they can. Anyone is welcome and all singing abilities are also welcome. The class begins at 18:30 and will be taught in English. I speak fluent German, and questions in German during the lesson are always welcome. If you are wanting to have a lesson in German, please check out our event on Mondays at the same time. If you enjoyed the class, please consider joining the community! We have a choir that meets just after this meetup, so please stay if you had a nice time! This class is advertised in many places, and we do have many regulars that come and don't sign up. The number signed up on Meetup won't necessarily reflect the true number that come. As always the plan is below. See you there! Jared ********************************************************************************* 10 Min: Introduction: Belt voice is when you bring your chest voice high in order to sing high in a powerful way. Most pop music is sung in this way. You have to be very careful not to hurt yourself as you work on your belt technique! 10 Min: Warmup We'll get the chest voice going with some sliding exercises to bring the chest voice high 15 Min: Trinklied: Jetzt trink mer noch a Flascherl Wein What better simple song for belt voice than a good old fashioned drinking song? 25 Min: At last - Etta James Now for something completely different! We'll learn the song a bit first and try to add some contrast with our belt voices

Group singing lessons Choir!

Happy Pigeons

We are currently preparing for a concert and are not accepting new members, sorry! We will open the choir back up to everyone after our concert on October 25th. See you then! Hi! My name is Jared from the US and I'm a voice teacher, professional classical singer, and voice actor here in Berlin. Through this meetup group I've been offering voice lessons for the past several months and I thought it would be nice to have a choir for the voice lesson group to meet together and just sing. The rehearsals are led in English, but it is important to me that German speaking people feel welcome and questions in German are encouraged. I hope that this choir will help connect the German and English speaking corners of Berlin. There is no recommended donation. The choir is supported by the voice classes on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and by people who study voice with me privately. I will provide tea, so if you take some, please consider donating a euro or two. I'm more of a voice teacher than a choir director, but I have experience singing in professional choirs over the last 15 or so years, as well as some community choir conducting experience and feel comfortable in front of a choir. Anyone of any experience level is welcome, and there is no mandatory attendance. Warmup starts at 19:45 and then at 20:00 we begin the rehearsal. Here are the songs we are currently preparing if you want to listen: Nobody knows the trouble I've seen - traditional Africa -Toto The Scientist - Coldplay Jared
