Hello everyone! How are you doing? Hope you’re having lovely festive times this time of the year!

And guess what, we are back with Pop-up school of Vocals, dedicated to JAZZ and I am proud to announce that we are launching a new set of classes, albeit in The Hague!

Yup, and if you are in town please visit, if not sign up to my online portal powered by Patreon, where I publish video footage from my workshops and classes, to keep you updated!

So, this is what we have planned so far: there are four workshops at the beginning of 2020, for you to try these classes out, and if you wish to pursue the jazz vocal training further with me, there are two sets of courses to chose from later on in the year too.

I look forward to welcoming you and introducing you to our special guests who will be demonstrating improve and phrasing techniques, wicked jazz vocal stylistics and much more!

Find out more from my new website singjazzinthehague.com and until then –

HAPPY SINGING & MERRY HOLIDAYS ❤

 

 

Goodbye Edinburgh

New times upon us!

We are moving away from the city that blessed us with so many wonderful people and teaching opportunities! I have been teaching vocal technique for the last six years, but not as intensively as I’ve been teaching it in Edinburgh. So thank you, beautiful place ❤

During the last year and a half I have been blessed with developing my own teaching method too, which I will now aim to publish online here: http://patreon.com/elenadana

Please do join me in this new cyber venture and let’s make this journey fun together! 😀

Much love, Elena x

jazz workshop.001

It’s been an absolute pleasure to teach a series of Masterclasses dedicated to Jazz, Blues, Ballads, Romani & Balkan genres, with acclaimed songwriters, musicians and performers such as Norma Jean Martine, Adam Bridges, Allegra Shock, Meg Cavanaugh and Dunja Botic at the legendary Premises Studios, London, UK, during winter & spring 2016 & 2017. 

The 3rd wave of school is now on during Summer 2018, in Scotland, Edinburgh!

And just as promised, this time we are launching series of Singing Classes  on a weekly basis in MAY! We’ll also dropping in a FREE taster for you to see what it’s like, and if you would like to learn more, there are drop-in sessions in May, and more classes and courses are coming up in June, July & August with gigs every Tuesday in Brig Below for students to showcase their work!

Each May drop-in class will introduce a new jazz standard song as an exercise, relevant vocal techniques and a jazz improv exercises. This series of classes are not run as a course, yet more classes you visit, more songs you will learn!

We had a wonderful time at the Ballads Vocal Masterclass last month, with lots of positive energy and great feedback! See the VIDEO from this class here.

In the light of this, we are bringing our next Masterclass to the Premises Studios, dedicated to the Gypsy & Balkan vocal techniques, inspired purely by traditional Romani gypsy singing and Balkan folk.

We are excited to announce that on this occasion we will be joined by a wonderful singer from Don Kipper Band Dunja who will teach us a couple of songs from her beautiful repertoire and spill the bins about the magic of vocals.

Please join us for this event and register your place in advance here. 

Much love
