Laura Stavinoha

“Empower yourself through your voice”

My name is Laura Stavinoha and I am a musical performer, composer, producer and coach specialised in voice and singing.

Do you have to speak in front of an audience and want to steady your nerves? Would you like to learn how to enunciate, or how to profile yourself vigorously through your voice? As a voice coach I can help you to communicate with more decisiveness and expressiveness. My goal is empowering people to find clarity, gain confidence and use effective strategies to take their lives and businesses to a higher level. Most of my clients are professional voice users or employees who are often dealing with client contact or public speaking. They are consultants, teachers, trainers, executives, managers, actors, singers and people working at customer services or sales.

MYBIOGRAPHY

I’ve had over 15 years of training as a (classical) vocalist and more than 10 years of working experience as a professional voice user and performer.

As a vocalist, I have studied the spoken and unspoken rules of various music genres. But currently my focus is the authentic, intuitive voice, independent towards acknowledged traditions.


THEMETHOD

It is my mission to create connection through music and voice. I have an unconventional approach where the individual is at centre, not one particular method or technique. The unique character of every single voice is what I’m looking at, and together we will work on how you can express yourself to the fullest.

HAPPYCLIENTS

“I learned that if you speak from the heart rather than from the head, your message will have more impact on the recipient. This is very helpful for me, personally as well as professionally!”


An Interview with me

ETIMY:    “How would you like to be perceived by your clients”

Laura:      “As someone who creates an environment where you don’t have to be afraid of making mistakes and where you can freely explore your possibilities.”

“ETIMY:   “What makes you good at what you do?”

Laura:      “I’m aware that every person is unique and therefore needs a personal approach, and I use my sensitivity to tune into that level. This way, my clients offer me just as much opportunities for learning and growth as I offer to them”

ETIMY:    “What’s really fun to do in your job as Coach?”

Laura:      “Genuinely connecting with others gives me a lot of energy. Working with people on this level is creative, meaningful and it increases consciousness.”

At age 9, Laura Stavinoha debuted as a piano talent at the renowned Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and started writing her first songs as a teenager. She entered the Conservatorium van Amsterdam (CvA) at 17, and then went on to earn her first degree at the University of Bristol (UK) and then her Master’s Degree, MA Musicology With the University of Amsterdam.

Experience

With over 15 years of training as a (classical) vocalist, more than 10 years of working experience as a professional voice user and performer, I began practicing as a voice coach in 2012. I also have over 7 years’ experience as a booking manager at MultiVoice International Voice Agency.

I began my career with Dutch national Radio 4, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw and developing performances incorporating classical music, like The Floating Diva and performed opera arias, performed in many festivals and events in including Gergiev Festival, Lowlands, Oerol, Festival of Flanders, Musikfestspiele Potsdam and Festival Périgord Noir: The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.

Methods

I do not solely offer voice training techniques. Your voice reveals vast amounts of information about yourself, like physical condition and emotions. If necessary, I therefore also look at the causes of my client’s complaint. Is it just incorrect speech habits that we need to work on, or do environmental/psychological factors play a role as well?

My vocal coaching is all about the development of your authentic voice. I’m not using one specific method or technique, since every voice is unique and incomparable with any other. Also, I don’t make a tight distinction between popular and classical music, as I work in both fields and I believe that one need not necessarily rule out the other. By developing the right techniques you can sing whatever your want, in a way that suits you.

My thoughts

To me there’s no other art form, which can affect emotion and trigger memories straight away. Almost every one understands the universal language of music, and we’ve all experienced that sense of inter-connectedness during a shared, musical experience. That is why it is my mission to create connection through music and voice.

Since the voice is the mirror of the soul, just like the eyes, it tells a lot about who you are. And therefore I would like to express an opposing view against the idea that singing and music is mostly about excellence, competition and entertainment. Instead, it’s a way of making contact with yourself and others, and a means to explore and express your own creativity.

Use your voice, it’s one of the most direct ways to express yourself. No two human beings are the same, each voice is unique: timbre, tone colour, pitch, melody and pronunciation vary with each individual. This is exactly why your voice is not just a carrier for words, but also a powerful, personal and creative mean to connect and make music.

Your future

Do you have to speak in front of an audience and want to steady your nerves? Would you like to learn how to enunciate, or how to profile yourself vigorously through your voice? Are you speaking all day at work and is your voice tired out afterwards?

Most of my clients are professional voice users or employees who are often dealing with client contact or public speaking. They are consultants, teachers, trainers, executives, managers, actors, singers and people working at customer services or sales.

You don’t have to be a professional voice user to benefit from speech coaching, it can be just as useful to improve communication in your private life. Have you ever noticed that you automatically start to talk differently in a specific situation? Faster, higher, louder or even softer? I can help you become more aware of your breathing and the way you use your voice. But also how this is all connected to your posture, thoughts and emotions.
