Welcome to the BoB blog!birdonthebirch_illustrator

Bird on the Birch (BoB) is an Artist Development Programme for vocalists of all levels and contemporary genres. Founded by Elena Dana in 2007, BoB provides bespoke one-to-one vocal coaching, managerial support for artists, and produces singing-songwriting workshops, showcases, events and vocal training classes.

Learn to Sing Jazz is a new BoB’s initiative to introduce jazz vocalists into a teaching profession and offer more in-person and online jazz singing classes to an adult learner of all levels and abilities.


Pop up Singing School was born as a result of Elena’s training at the British Academy of New Music in London as a Music Educator. First series of classes were held across the borough of Hackney in London in Summer 2014, which was a great success. The second set of classes was held at the Premises Studios in the winter-spring of 2017 featuring a great number of musicians. The third Popup school of Vocals was run in Scotland, Edinburgh, with a number of classes, courses and workshops thought the summer of 2018 into a fall of 2019. The fourth Pop-up school is now running in The Hague! Read on.
