I am a graduate of Rhythmos Conservatory of Greece, with a degree in contemporary singing with a grade of Excellent, as well as a MA music graduate, entitled as MA in Music Performance - Voice (2017-2018) of Kingston University in London. My dissertation title is “Singing with growl: Methods and Techniques”. My studies in vocals last more than 14 years (2005-2018): Municipal Conservatory of Nea Ionia, Volos (2005-2009), Conservatory "Rhythmos" of Volos (2010-2011), Conservatory of Northern Greece (Thessaloniki 2012-2013) and private tuitions with Evi Siamanta (Thessaloniki 2013-2014), Ioli Skourti (Volos 2005-2011) and Aliki Dourmazer-research of alternative ways of speaking and stage presence (Thessaloniki 2015-2016), Susan Blair (modern vocals) and Meredith White (jazz -self-planning) (2017-2018) in the context of my MA studies. I am a Bachelor and Integrated MA graduate of the Theater Department of the Fine Arts School in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2010-2016): Dissertation on vocal techniques in musical theatre performance. In order to combine the vocal art with other types of arts and to observe their interaction, I have been taught different types of dance from 2005 to 2017: Jazz, Oriental, Modern Dance, Latin, Contemporary, Ballet, Tango, Musical Theatre. I have also attended piano, guitar, music theory, sound recording, freehand drawing classes, as I have also participated in similar seminars. I teach one to one and group tuitions in Contemporary Singing, pop, rock, jazz-improvisation, folk. I address all ages. Why would anyone prefer me: In my classes, I teach modern singing, the basics of vocal education, a deeper knowledge of the body function in relation to vocalisation (anatomy and understanding of vocal function in the body) and also voice awareness through the ear practising and mind concentration. The vocal protection techniques are major to avoid damage of the vocal system, as well as the research on the human body resonations, which change the vocal quality, are important elements of the course. I also provide advice on nutrition, exercise, health and lifestyle in relation to the vocal function. Finally, I emphasise, if this is desired by the student, in the combination of dance and theatre techniques with the voice. My teaching approach focuses on the nature, the already existing knowledge and the goals of the learner. My priority is to support the uniqueness of each student. The rules of music cooperate with the individual elements of the student, so that they become an evolutionary motivation and not a limiting means. My goal is to promote the student's critical thinking so that he/she learns to function independently, having received a holistic knowledge of the body functionality and its psychology, seeing himself/herself as vocal instruments, treating the voice as a musical instrument. Why I have chosen teaching (motivation, goals): I understand the educational process as a result of cooperation. Therefore, with the help of dialogue and meaningful communication, I aim to create a free field of expression for a student's needs. Additional: I can also provide the student with personal notes, or support his/her individual research (ex. Dissertation, thesis, etc.). Teaching online experience: I really love teaching online as this helps me communicate my art with people from all around the world. I am fully equipped with all the appropriate electronic fittings to make my lessons have the sense of a face to face teaching experience. That means I use two cameras to make obvious two different points of view and show the appropriate body posture for singing in the best way, I also use mirrors, books, whiteboards to write down things about music theory and of course my piano, microphones and amplifiers. I like to make sure that the students feel I am there, close to them, and feel as much content as they would be by doing a lesson at their home! Professional experience: • Contemporary Singing Teaching (2017- today) • Live performances in various music stages in Greece, as a lead singer and piano accompanimentist. Organisation of various musical bands (Thessaloniki 2011-2016). • Musical performance performances: With the professional musical group "K's Blink" at the Thessaloniki Concert Hall (December 2015, March 2016), participation in the World Musical Festival of AUTh.
