NO MORE PLACES LEFT!
Studying with Vera Wenkert has completely changed my life. I turned up a confused lyric soprano, feeling this was not my voice type. Within the first lesson, Vera could hear exactly what my true voice type is. Now, 2 years later, I am a blossoming Dramatic Soprano. Everything feels the way it is meant to feel. Vera’s teaching is incredibly detailed. She can hear if the root of the tongue is blocking the sound, or if the jaw is too tense, the breath not low enough. She has the ability to pick up on these problems so quickly, and deal with them in and efficient and patient way. During her Masterclasses, I have seen her meet many international singers with many problems. She is so kind and open with them. I see them feel immediately relaxed, resulting in a quicker response from them to what she is asking them to do. She is so dedicated to singing, students always receive 100% from her. Her non-judgemental, professional and beautiful character, make lessons and Masterclasses an utter joy to be in. I would encourage singers to sign up for her Masterclasses. You will learn so much about the technique of singing in a comfortable, happy and professional environment.
Vera Wenkert is an exceptional teacher and artist. Her Institute StimmKunst represents an important stepping stone for the professional singer who has graduated from university and is singing in first engagements or preparing auditions.
Singers who change their Fach and repertoire are accompanied in a securing yet directive way so that they will find engagements. Veras very refined teaching skills and her analytical and sensitiv listening, guide the singer into a motivating and continuous progress and confidence in his or her voice on the path to mastery.
Vera Wenkert knows how to build together with the singing artist his or her voice, musicianship and stagecraft to allow a lifelong carrier. The person with its unique personality, with its qualities and with its challenges is in the center of Veras work. The masterclasses and workshops are always taught in a trustworthy atmosphere where every singer gets the same amount of time and attention. The mindful interaction between singers in the institute is encouraged. The Institute benefits from the artistic input of Vera Wenkert’s carrier as a dramatic soprano with a lifelong stage experience, as well as her network of excellent coaches, pianists and conductors. My singing as well as my professional life as a singer and voice teacher have enormously improved since I started studying with Vera Wenkert. I highly recommend her and her Institute StimmKunst to every singer with expectations for a professional and long-lasting carrier in the singing profession.
Vera Wenkert is an outstanding vocal artist, mentor and teaching technician. Since my studying with her at Institute StimmKunst, I’ve got my voice as well as my confidence back. During masterclasses and individual lessons, I’ve seen her knowledge, passion and wisdom shine through, allowing her to adapt to all kind of psychological and vocal situations and guide students already well in their careers as well as professional beginners or amateurs of all ages.
As a singer and vocal teacher myself, I can only recommend anyone who has a serious interest in the vocal arts to study at Institute StimmKunst.
I highly recommend working with Vera Wenkert as a voiceteacher as well as participating in her masterclasses.
Vera Wenkert is a fine dramatic soprano with a great ear for teaching. She is very precise in hearing vocal problems and in offering solutions that get complete results. I strongly recommend Vera Wenkert as a teacher for any singer looking for vocal help and wanting an accurate diagnosis.Her performance experience also compliments her teaching ability in that she knows languages and stage deportment.
I had been singing all my life as a lyric soprano & I got to the point where I was ready to stop singing altogether. Vocally things just didn’t feel right, amazingly to me no-one could hear my difficulty. That’s when I met Vera Wenkert online & she started slowly working with me via Skype. After only one year she uncovered that I was really a Dramatic Mezzo-soprano. The progress with my voice was so encouraging I travelled from Australia to Zürich twice to work with her in person. She is an outstanding teacher & person who does not make empty promises. If you are looking for someone who can actually diagnose your vocal issues properly & give you a solution, she is the teacher for you. I am proud to be mentored by Vera Wenkert & continue to develop my voice with her as a Dramatic Mezzo-soprano.
