Hi, my name is Deasy! As an active professional singer, I work in the Dutch National Opera choir. I also performs in many concerts across the Netherlands as soloist for oratorio, opera aria, and lieder. Aside from performing on stage, I love teaching as much as singing. I give private singing lessons and online lessons. I also give online lectures, vocal coaching, and masterclasses to several universities and music schools in Indonesia.
I grew up surrounded by musical and pop genres. Disney songs, The Sound of Music, The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, and Wicked were some of the musics that inspired me to become a singer. Then in my musical journey, I found classical musics, opera and art songs. I learned the diversity of musics, touching people’s heart in so many different ways. From there, I started my music education, literally pursuing my passion.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Music and a Master of Music in classical singing from Koninklijk Conservatorium, of which I received a distinction as a nuance artist. Having several different teachers in my learning process, it gives me an understanding that there is no single solution for music. There are many different approaches and methods that can be used to teach and to learn music.
Nine years ago before formally studying music, I had vocal injuries. I strained my vocal cord, I had potential nodules, and I lost my voice due to unhealthy singing techniques. Ever since then, I have to carefully re-learn all the basic techniques. Experiencing it the hard way, I know how important it is to have a good understanding of vocal techniques, and I seriously dig into vocal pedagogy. Even though there are many roads to Rome, a healthy approach is one of my priority.
We will always start the lesson by vocal warming up and work on the choice of songs. In my teaching, there are three main aspects that I address:
- vocal technique: breathing, placement of vowels, larynx position, tongue position, soft palate, support muscles, awareness of physical anatomy, and vocal register (chest, middle, and head voice);
- language: articulation, phrasing, meaning, and storytelling;
- artistic and nuance: musical phrasing, interpretation, musical style, owning the music, and improvisation.
Through those aspects, we will focus on finding your own voice and style. Together, we are going to enjoy the process and bring out the best of your voice. Singing is fun and learning to sing will not be any less fun!
Course: Pop and musical singing lesson
Show me your favorite musics and your choice of songs, we will start the work from there!
Course: Classical singing lesson
We are going to use vocalises method books (depending on your level), such as Marchesi or Vaccai or Concone. Then, we will find the right repertoire for your voice type.
I am very flexible to the student’s condition.
