Work with me
From Colombia to Japan: the amount of international performing artists that are singing in German is amazing! Although with time and regular practice it is possible to acquire a second (or third…) language but learning how to speak and sing it without an accent can be incredibly challenging.
This is where I can help you:
I am Angela, German pronunciation coach for singers and choirs.
I work with singers of any kind:
– amateur or professional singers or choirs of any level of experience
– soloists, choir singers, vocal ensembles or choirs
– in preparation for a rehearsal, a concert, a stage performance, a recording or nothing in
– wanting to work on one short piece only or on a whole opus or role
– singing art songs, opera roles, single arias or church music
In my coaching lessons you will learn
– How to pronounce each German word of your performance piece accurately:
We will work on your text by reading it first word by word until you pronounce every word
– How to speak text passages in the correct flow of language:
The next step is to speak whole passages to get you acquainted with the language flow of
– How to apply that knowledge to singing:
As you know very well, singing a text is not the same as speaking it. I will show you how to
apply your newly gained pronunciation skills to singing.
– How to internalize German pronunciation so profoundly that in the end you can Forget
about technique and concentrate 100 % on your performance!
Too good to be true? Here is what my clients say:

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if you can help me and this is the right thing for me without knowing you?
You can contact me here and we schedule a talk via Skype or Zoom. You tell me about your needs and how I can support you and then we will see if this could work for both of us. This call is free of charge and free of obligation.
How long will it take for me to get my German pronunciation perfect?
As you may already have suspected, this depends on so many factors (your language level, length and number of musical pieces, your commitment etc.) that I cannot possibly answer that question! What I can promise you, however, is that we will work as long as it takes you to reach the level of pronunciation you want to achieve.
What software/technique for online coaching sessions will I need?
You need a computer with internal or external webcam and a stable internet connection. I do my lessons via Skype or Zoom, a virtual room you enter with a link I will send you. Zoom does not require a login from you and is usually more stable than Skype.
