I have over 20 years of experience in music as a profesionnal singer and songwriter, and now teacher.(Classical,pop,rock,jazz) I have been singing, performing and studying the voice since I was a young girl. I can relate to my students cause I have been them. I will teach you how to become the best singer you can be and how to take care of your voice, so your instrument functions properly.
I have been studying vocal technique and vocal pedagogy for the last 18 years under the tutalage of Dr. Joel Ewing (former professor at Juillard School and vocal coach to Steve Perry, Seal and The Eagles). I graduated from Musicians Institute in vocal technique and songwriting in 1994, and from ETM Geneva Shool of Music in 1991.
You will see a difference quickly, when you apply the technique I teach you.
I teach in an enjoyable and quite part of my home studio, with piano, guitar and recording equipment available for the lessons. But I am also available to come to you if that is more convenient or though a skype session.
I provide you a library of references. (Carusso, Method of voice production, E.Herbert-Caesari)
I am a professional vocalist who perform regularly with a jazz/pop duo called The Fixtures Duo, divers rock bands, as well as a solo artist. I designed a course around your needs and goals, and will help you with your technique as well as your performance.
I speak fluent French, and conversational Spanish.
Music is my passion. I cannot imagine doing anything else. I understand being a student, I have been one myself, so I can relate to the process.
Its amazing to watch someone grow and get better right in the front of your eyes. I take great pride in watching my students progress.
I particularly enjoy teaching beginners and kids, so that they get a good foundation right from the get go. Or students who need to take their singing to the next level.
I truly enjoy guiding another person so they are capable of achieving their goal. In the music business, there is so much competition, a good teacher is essential to have in your corner. And I am there to guide you and cheer you on!
Fabienne is a very professional and thorough teacher, she had a lot of training herself and is very mindful of the details involved with anything to do with singing!! She sings many styles, from opera to pop, it's always a great experience to learn from her :)
I have known Fabienne for quite some time. She is not only a great person, but is the best vocalist I have ever worked with in professional circles. Currently, Fabienne was chosen out of 250 singers to front a popular Los Angeles based rock group. Her music theory is awesome as well as her approach to classically taught vocals makes her the obvious AND BEST choice for your lessons.
After my first lesson with Fabienne, I noticed that my singing improved significantly. She helped pinpoint bad habits that have been hurting me and that prevented me from singing with the ease and control that I have always wanted. Surprisingly, after working with her, I have been able to sing much lower notes than before and with strength as well! Her attention to detail has also helped me become more artistic in my singing. It has been a longer and tougher process in acquiring this skill, but worthwhile. I also like how her lessons complement any style of singing well; being a singer of multiple genres and a recording artist, this is big.
First thing, we will have a quick discussion to see what you want to achieve with your lessons and see if you have any previous singing experience. So that I can evaluate and design a course around your needs.

I usually charge $50 an 1hour or $25 for half an hour at my home studio or through Skype.

Through the years, I have been approached many times by fellow musicians and music teachers that had questions about how I was achieving my sound or that wanted me to help them with their vocal technique, or their own students. That's when I realized I could make a difference in teaching and passing along my expertise.
Beginner singers. Songwriters who want to improve their singing. Professional vocalists that are having issues with their voice or have reached a plateau.
I am working currently with a vocalist that is also going to M.I. She felt like she was stagnating, and was having issues with her voice especially when she was getting in her higher register. So she started working with me, and within a few weeks of training and doing the excercices I gave her to do, she saw a big difference. Her teacher at M.I even asked her what she was doing different because her voice had improved so much within a short period of time.
They should ask the teacher what kind of training he or she has.
How long have he/she been doing so with continuous improvement or positive results?
Does the teacher performs as well?
I believe you have to know an instrument well to be able to teach it.
What do they want to achieve, is it for fun or to become a professional?
I will teach you slightly differently if you want to sing as a hobby or if you want a carreer.
