The Institute of Integrative Vocal Training was founded in 2002. Our main focus was the research of a voice based on holistic aspects in relation to the body. Vocal expression is to be seen as the expression of the human beeing in total. Therefore singing and speaking are reflecting the innermost processes of a person have to be considered as such within our work.
By the beginning of 2018 we move to spain and open the Academy of Integrative Vocal Coaching in Benalmádena Pueblo (Malaga) to extend our sphere of activity.

Considering singing we work with professionals, semi-professionals and amatuers. We are convinced that every human beeing can sing. An decisive factor consists in a voice coaching that is based on healthy and physiological aspects together with a stressmanagement founded on holistic principles.
The same applies when it comes to speaking. We word with professional speakers, moderators and people representing over their voices or holding speaches on a regular basis. Rhetoric rules are quickly forgotten in stresssituations when the body acts like a wild animal. Only on the basis of fundamental well-being the speaker is able to create an atmosphere of acceptance and openness at the public convincing with a personal charisma.
Instrumentalists are taking benefit as well. No matter wether their problems consist in breathing, posture or other deficits. Our long term experience in the work with instrumentalists shows that only music making without stress allows optimizations of musical potencials and an unfolding of talents.
