Chanson intensive

Chanson interpretation in voice and role

I am set on love from head to toe! - The wit and humor of these songs, but also their depth and expressiveness, still fascinate us today and remind us of "Babylon Berlin". 

This course is also suitable for anyone who would like to work on a modern cabaret song, a Kreisler couplet, a songwriter's piece, a sophisticated pop song or even a song they have written themselves.  

We will work with you to find your voice and your personal interpretation. The course offers singing lessons, accompaniment, interpretation and acting lessons. A large part of the work takes place in the plenum.

One or two pieces (approx. 6 minutes in total) and a replacement piece should be perfectly prepared by heart. Please bring performance dresses and accessories to match the songs for the final concert.


Please send the sheet music - notated and in the desired key - to info@landesmusikakademie.de at least 14 days before the start of the course for forwarding to the pianist.
