...For myself, the most interesting piece of knowledge that I have gained is that your own artistic individuality is key to your performance, allowing you to enjoy being the person you are on and offstage. Like a wonderful piece of art some people will love you and others, whose tastes differ may not.

I am very proud to be on the vocal staff of Berlin Opera Academy. My objective is to guide and support this intense vocal experience in a meaningful way, giving helpful instruction for positive results, and to continue to mentor our students in the future. We are there for you as a connection and support system to help you continue your growth. There is no end to artistic achievement with the numerous possibilities at BOA. There is something for everyone- whether you are an aspiring singer, pianist, or conductor or director. Each person takes away newly gained knowledge and experience which impacts their futures, whatever that might be for each individual.
At BOA, I have the opportunity to shape the minds and voices of our future opera singers. This fully immersed program is an awesome experience!
Thank you! I loved the whole experience. Suggested improvements were literally tiny things that I had to think really hard to even come up with, if the program stays exactly as is it is fabulous. Everyone working there is so lovely & helpful. I’ve come away absolutely inspired. Thank you!
I was, however, blown away by the outstanding level of teaching and will be most definitely recommending BOA to other young singers.
Thank you!! BOA is awesome, and I feel I now realistically have the tools and knowledge to peruse a career in Germany in the future. Priceless experience. Thank you!
