Authentic German Diction, Voice Lessons and Performance Training
Stand out in the German speaking repertoire
German diction and voice coaching lessons are designed for American singers who want to stand out in the German speaking repertoire with the goal to sound like a native German singer and to create meaning by translating the foreign language into the heart and soul.
Only when we own every word can we create meaning and emotion, and only then can we touch our audience.
"I came to Christine for German diction help for the role I was singing. We dove right in and she helped me take apart each phrase and really understand both the intention and the pronunciation. In a very short time I came away with a few great tools to better communicate the language. I highly recommend Christine!"

Answer: the vowel
Have you ever sung about muttons in one of your favorite arias?
If you sing Agathe's aria in "Der Freischütz" (The hunter's bride) make sure you sing the vowel i in "Himmel" (heaven) closed enough although it is in the upper register.
Otherwise you will make a "Hammel" (mutton) out of it.
