Over Nina V.
I am Slovenian singer, moving between jazz, pop, progressive rock, folk music, performing in theatrical environment,.. A great joy for me is guiding a student through the exploration of his/her own voice, its colours, techniques, expressivity, styles,..., no matter the student's background and preferences, with keeping the playfulness and creativity one of the main focuses in the learning experience. These explorations are based on skills gained through the working process, such as: vocal techniques, basics of various styles, performance skills, expressivity and story-telling aspects, building the repertoire, vocal improvisation, arranging skills, song-writing,...
I graduated from Amsterdam Jazz Conservatory and I am keep on collecting my knowledge and experiences internationally. Among others, I was learning from and working with Joey Blake (USA), Theo Bleckmann (USA), Jay Clayton (USA), Claron McFadden (Holland),... Currently, I am being coached by Dutch classical baritone singer Wiebe-Pier Cnossen. I am a vocalist and an author of a project, music and poetry of Nina Virant & Ansambel za preužitek.
