Over Rolfe D.
My name is Rolfe, I am originally from San Francisco, California, and have been based in The Hague now for 3 years.
I came here to pursue a life and professional career in Europe as the classical music scene is quite rich here as I have been fortunate to perform recitals and productions in venues like the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ and Het Concertgebouw. I do love performing and am still very much active as a classical singing actor but I also very much enjoy teaching what I have learned in my own training and from the professional stage.
It is very important for me to listen carefully and differently to each student that comes into my studio. Not everyone learns the same so I continue to find many ways to communicate the same method depending on the student in front of me.
When singing is free and beautiful, it can be a cathartic and euphoric feeling that I want all of my students to experience. I entrust that taking voice lessons with me will not only improve your singing voice as well as your physical and mental strength and intelligence. I look forward to uncovering your true and authentic timbre and sound!
The foundation of my vocal teaching philosophy is rooted in empowering the human being in front of me through the instruction of the vocal arts. Through my study and professional experience, this process consists of careful attention and detail to the breath and body in physical, mental, and kinaesthetic sense; understanding of text and interpretation that comes from an authentic place to heighten the beauty of the voice and clear communication of artistry; tuning carefully my ear to not only what sounds good but also feels good; observing if the singing was done with enough poise, ease, and elegance; yield my students to release any unnecessary and extra efforts while inviting freedom that is calm, collected and dynamic; guide my students to learn how to become their own teacher. This is what I hope to impart to my students.
I look forward to passing on my own knowledge but furthermore learning from my future students to become an even better teacher.
