Vocal Coaching

Odulphuskerk Concert 2016
Molded by my inner dwelling in the metaphysics of things, my approach reaches into the core understanding of our very nature with its perceptual limitations. A conscious exploration, expansion and conceptual redefinition of our beingness within natural doingness. Merging into effortless singing that is, or wu wei, as described by Lao Tzu in the Tao Te Ching. True artistry through inner mastery, a technique beyond techniques!

I am grateful to all my trainees, for while being my students they are and always have been also my teachers. I thank you all for the trust, the beautiful moments and the journey!

Teaching while learning, inspiring while being inspired, changing while being changed, in a process of complete apprehension and fusion of self impression (resonant inner harmony through natural breathing and posture - consonance of the mind, body and soul) and self expression (outer manifestation of inner beingness through natural intent and sound projection), towards the ultimate singing experience (or, as a matter of fact, ultimate being experience)! An experience that appeals to our inner knowing, setting us free from mechanical wringing, further search and accumulation of worthless (theoretical) knowledge.

I no longer hold classes in the old frame of teaching and not bound by repetitive schedules. I will however engage in vocal sessions based on my time availability, inspiration level and mutual  resonance.

Before reaching out, please bear in mind, my approach to singing is a holistic one. Be prepared to tap  into your inner wounds, to actively engage in your own healing and gain access to the self discovery of your true nature. It`s the only seat of true power and without it, there is no chance you`ll ever truly sing, no matter how great my teachings are and how powerful the technique. 

Ask me for a reference price! 
*Preferably in person, or online via Skype or Zoom.
*Sessions last approximately an hour but are not confined by time.
*Pay more if inspired and able; pay less if resources are limited.
*Feel free to pay nothing if it didn't resonate. 
No judgement and no expectations!

P.S. I may offer master classes, workshops and seminars ("Everyone Can Sing" / "Your Voice Is Your Healer" / "Mastery of True Singing" - alternative themes and concepts available upon request).

...in truth, OdiliaCarmen

Should you feel moved, share your reflections. Your feedback not only aids in my understanding but also contributes to the collective comprehension of this profound journey towards truth.

"My collaboration with Odilia was one that surprised me on many levels. I approached her to help me with a couple of songs that I was working on, so that she could coach me to improve my performance. What I was expecting to be a technical vocal training, with breathing exercises, singing scales and lip trills, turned out to be an introspective journey! Her goal is to help the singer be in touch with their inner self, aware of the ways they express their emotions while singing and focusing on these feelings instead of the song. In just a few sessions, she helped me see myself as a performer more clearly and gain consciousness of my body and my movements while trying to communicate a certain feeling with my voice. I enjoyed working with her very much and I'm looking forward to our next project together!" Maria Karkaretsi

"There is a strong correlation between the understanding of life and the mastery over singing. As I worked with Odilia and learned about the basic, physical principles of singing, I learned about the non-physical aspects of singing – which is the mind. 
If we imagine the body to be analogous to an instrument – say for example a flute –, then the unresolved thoughts, (negative) judgements of ourselves and others, culturally imposed habitual thinking and all that, can be analogous to the clutter contaminating your flute, which obstructs the natural flow of air (essential to your instrument making sound) and limits and distorts the perception and potential of your instrument. Only when we cleanse that instrument from all the clutter, we become capable to perceive the true nature of that instrument, its true beauty, its honest natural sound in full potential. 
The mental clutter is cleansed with awareness. And with awareness comes control over the way you live life. From my personal experience, the by-product is truer happiness as the world you perceive is more real, more complete, more objective. Acceptance and gratitude, and, ultimately peace. Odilia doesn’t just teach singing, she shares the fundamentals of existence, which is so valuable insight to a fulfilling way of living. 
What initially triggered me to change was that I was unhappy with the way life was, how people treated me, the circumstances, the way I was. I had no control over the flow of life. The answer lies in awareness. And with that, you gain control over your own flow in the stream, like a little boat finding a sail to work with. 
Her teachings helped me improve my ability to see the bigger picture, become a version of myself that I always wanted to be, find peace."

"I have been singing since I was 4 years old. I have also been going from one vocal coach to the next, however none as helpful as Odilia. She has a personality related approach which adapts to the student's needs. Most importantly she brings it back to the essence of singing, enjoyment, and allows you to understand what goes through your body. Overall, she provides a great experience!" Domenec Bis

"Through her vocal coaching, which takes people in their totality and not only as singers, Odilia gives the key for us to unlock our natural self and our real voice, often sadly left unheard by ourselves and others for a very very long time.
She's taught me the way to confidently and safely rest into who I truly am and sing from there. She’s a clear mirror, which is capable to reflect to me any tiniest signs of pretence and trying-too-hard. I’m learning with her to recognise, trust and enjoy just being me and pleasantly not taking myself too seriously. With her, singing has become more pleasurable and effortless than ever. To my own surprise, the less effort I put in trying to sing, the better I sound. Yes, many times, I found it mind-blowing!
Last but not least, her selflessness and attention make every one of our sessions a real “me-moment”. After each meeting which feels like an active meditation, I infallibly walk out the door smiling and feeling relaxed, content and closer to myself.
By far, Odilia is more than a gorgeous singer and an excellent singing teacher, she’s a devoted life coach and mentor who has people and their growth at heart."

"Odilia is by far one of the best teachers you could find. She really goes deeper in understanding and allowing you to understand what happens in your body and what the effects are of this. Not only in regard to your singing ability but in general. This makes it so much more interesting and helpful. She gave me many excellent exercises that really helped me to develop my voice.
More then this she is very motivating and enthusiastic and really believes in what she is doing and teaching. It is a great experience if you have the luck to have her as a teacher or to know her as a person."

"Gracias Odilia, tu tienes una voz enorme y me inspira a sacar de mi, lo que no tenia. Con tus tecnicas he fortalecido mi forma de cantar, de rapear y respirar. Tus lecciones privadas son perfectas, tu sabes lo que le hace falta a cualquier persona que quiera cantar. Saludos Atentamente," Stivens Serna
