Take voice lessons! Sonja Korkman teaches singing on Mondays and Thursdays at Vattuniemenkatu 9 in Lauttasaari, Helsinki. It is also possible to attend lessons online.
”So far, Sonja has changed me from a person who is asked to be silent into a person who is asked to sing.” – Arttu Peltoniemi, 29 y/o.
Sonja Korkman is a Master in Music from the folk music department at the Sibelius-Academy and a Certified Master Teacher in Balance in Phonation™ Voice Training within folk music and CCM.
A newborn baby produces sound with it’s whole body, but when we grow up, we often become more passive and learn malfunctions from our surroundings. Balance in Phonation™ Voice Training is based on scientific research and developed by voice therapist and singing teacher Ritva Eerola. The method re-awakens the body’s natural voice production reflexes and gives you a durable, flexible and expressive voice and brings out your unique timbre.
During the lessons you can learn more both about technique, interpretation and your favorite music style. Everybody can develop their skills!
