Workshops
I give lessons and workshops, turned around creating music in intuitive ways. These can be for anyone. No need to be a singer or musician. For seasoned musicians, this can be a fresh new approach to music and singing. Contact me if you're interested in learning with me, or if you have a space and would like to hire me for a workshop somewhere.

About me
I am a musician living in the Swiss mountains. I have always loved approaching music as an intuitive art. After having spent years learning instruments like the piano, guitar, ukulele, Taiko, Djembe, Didgeridoo... I came to the conclusion that what I enjoyed most was using the instruments I was born with: The voice, and the body. Through singing, beatbox, and body percussion, I feel we get a very direct connection to our creativity. I enjoy the idea that even our most distant ancestors had access to these "instruments", and may have done just what we are doing now.
Before the pandemic, I was organizing and conducting CircleSongs, where I get groups of people, musician or not, to create music together in different ways, using their voice and bodies. The pandemic changed some things of course, and I put CircleSongs on hold. I'm now working on a portable loop station system with which people can keep creating music in the most intuitive way possible, using a simple smartphone. Creativity always finds a way!
