I offer workshops for choirs, vocal ensembles as well as soloists.
I was co-founder of the summer intensive vocal seminar, NSVI, in Germany at which I successfully taught and organised for over 20 years.
I enjoy working regularly with choirs in Pflaumheim and more recently in Kälberau and Münster with the Westfälischer Kammerchor. Twice I have been invited as a "master" to work with the choirs at the International School of Dubai.
Also, I have given workshops, presentations, and practical advice courses for singing in Germany for singers at the American Institute of Musical Studies (AIMS) in Graz, Austria for many years.

I will be giving presentations for the Association for Music in International Schools (AMIS) teacher Conference in Dubai and Berlin as well as holding workshops in Iceland and Constance and Oldenburg in 2018 and 2019.
