I'm proud to announce a new class starting on Tuesdays! I'm now offering a second lesson in English on the topic of the week.

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.

10 Min. Introduction
How do you sing tricky rhythms well? How do you make them musical and sound good. Short answer: get it into your body!

10 Min. Rhythmic Warmup!
I'll challenge your ears and voices with some fun and interesting rhythms while we warm up

40 Min. God only knows - Beach boys
We're changing the format a bit for today. This song is hard, but awesome, and I want to have enough time to get through the whole thing. We'll break down each verse and figure out how to do the rhythms correct. There's lots of syncopations to be found here!
