I am a strong believer of every individual's unique style when it comes to Artistic performance so when I teach I am protective of my students uniqueness. With that in mind, I prefer to start from teaching basic breathing techniques and vocal drills. We practice basic jazz standards, going through the decades of songwriting history where students practice a song they like from each decade having listened to all versions and (I assist) students with coming up with their own versions of the songs they practice. I like to share my 20 years of experience on stage and with bands and mentoring them through tough times. I am frequently asked to coach my students with stage/performance preparation and in their recording sessions at studios which I am glad to do.
I am a professional singer - songwriter /stage performer who has made (written music and lyrics, recorded, editted) two albums, numerous music videos, designed and carried out vocal workshops and private vocal coaching sessions for both professional artists (prior to or during recording) and aspiring singers of all ages.
For the last two years, I have been a jury member for the Young Jazz Musician Auditions for İstanbul Jazz Festival, selecting upcoming artists to performs during the festival and I have attended workshops where I have shared my proffesional experiences with attendies/students.
The music video I have shared is a basic live recording from one of my jazz gigs. (Audio input: audience recording)
