Sandra Songwriting

Sandra Beddegenoots

Original compositions.

“Sandra Beddegenoots is the project which performs Sandras original compositions. In the beginning there were singer/songwriters like Nina Simone or Carole King who inspired her to start writing songs herself. Later on - in her student years – she became interested in young Scandinavian jazz vocalists. Nowadays she is more and more influenced by contemporary soul and blues musicians
Over the years the project, which started as a combo for her diploma graduation concert, has changed in correspondance to her own development as a singer and musician from a jazz band into a groovy singer/songwriter project, which shows Sandras affinity to blues and soul as well as her education in jazz music.”

Vocal Coach

After graduating as a speech therapist, I studied jazz and pop music at university. Since 2001, I have been passionately teaching vocal technique and singing in popular music styles.

Currently, I am giving private lessons in Mainz. In addition, I work as a vocal coach with choirs and as a workshop lecturer. My teaching is professionally grounded but also intuitive. I develop a fun and creative learning environment with tailored lessons to each student's learning ability and individual interests, allowing each student to grow towards his or her full potential. I focus on the student to comprehend their individual singing preference. This includes growing their vocal technique, music theory, and understanding of composition and spectrum.

To adapt to the different learning preferences of my students, I adjust my teaching style.
For years I have studied and practiced the Feldenkrais method and the concept “Complete Vocal Technique“ (CVT). Both methods are incorporated in my teaching successfully.

With contemporary literature, continuing education, and seminars I keep up to date in vocal teaching styles.
For example a master class with Tuck & Patti (USA), seminars in CVT, as well as an extra occupational education for songwriting at the Federal Academy of Trossingen. In 2009, I was a participant in the first segment of Feldenkrais Training in Rio de Janeiro.

SINGLE LESSONS:

Singers of all levels are welcome! From the very beginner to the professional singer with explicit needs and questions. During the lessons I often accompany on piano. For rehearsing at home, self-made playback recordings and karaoke are used. Frequent recordings help students hear themselves, increasing self-awareness quickly.

GROUP LESSONS:

Singing together makes happy! So group lessons and workshops have their own value of learning.
Imitation and learning via observing the other singers is an important component and increases the understanding of new techniques and styles.
My group lessons for various topics of vocal technique take a minimum of 3 hours, while the workshop “Solo Singing“ takes a minimum of 2 days with maximum of 10 participants.

TEACHING CONTENT:

· Singing Technique:
Healthy, effective technique and breathing while developing one’s individual range of sound.

· Singing in different styles:
jazz, swing, bossa nova, blues, pop, soul, rock...

· Improvising:
Improvising in jazz for beginner and intermediate levels.
Singing of variations and ad-libs, such as in soul and gospel music.

· Assistance for the singer on stage:
Guidance in working with other musicians or a band, use of a microphone, and technical equipment on stage. Creating sheets of music in proper key. Support and guidance in songwriting.

Location:
Mainzer Weltmusik Akademie, Neutorstr.10, 55116 Mz
