German Opera,

 Art Song 

and 

Viennese Operetta

Let the Music of the Language

release you and your audience 

into the music itself.

Viennese composers

were intimately familiar with 

Viennese dialect.

 

Get close to the cadence and melody of the language

spoken by the composers themselves,

and LET the OLD VIENNESE DIALECT that informed their compositions

SING THE MUSIC.

"Monica brings the cadences of the old Viennese pronunciation to the songs of the Viennese composers. Just as when Shakespeare is performed in original pronunciation, the songs become witness to the time and place they were written, revealing meaning and subtleties, creating a stronger and more authentic emotional impact."

Lehar, Strauss J., Strauss R., Benatsky, Stolz, Korngold and more.

STYLE and DICTION COACHING

Have you noticed 

how hard singers work while singing German

and

that even "correct" sung German

is often hard to understand?

" Monica goes beyond the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) pronunciation and gets to the natural melody of the language to make sung German understandable and have immediate meaning".

use the MUSIC OF THE LANGUAGE

TO RELEASE yourself and your audience INTO 

THE MUSIC ITSELF.

We had a 1 hour in person lesson…

I was just cast as Fraulein Schneider in a production of Cabaret. I am replacing someone and the cast is off book and in full rehearsal. They want me to sing a section of a song in German. My German is very weak.

         
Monica…the accent was perfect! On our second night, a man came up to my Herr Schultz after the show and told him that I had the perfect Berlin accent! He wanted to know if I was German! Thank you so much.
