Make the most of your lyrics!
What you’ll learn
Ilse’s 10 essential tools to help you make the MOST of your lyrics
to help you OWN your song and DELIVER your lines with more impact
so you can create a magical BOND with your listeners
“Ilse, sing us a song!” I’m at a party, hosted by some Australians and Irish.
As an aspiring singer, 19 years old, I gladly take that opportunity. I pick a song by Abbey Lincoln, a singer no one in the room ever heard of: “People on the street.”
And I start:
“Mister, what’s your name, standing in the rain, sleeping on a bitch out in the park”
They all burst out laughing. Loud.
Turns out I should have sung: BENCH. Bench.
Learned a lesson for life. Not to depend on my phonetically written down English.
From that moment on, I’m deep into lyrics. You will understand. 🙂
Years and years later, I can honestly say that I believe that the one thing that sets singers apart from instrumentalists is the use of words. Lyrics. Stories.
How to make the most of them? How to make them your own and truly connect with yourself and your audience? If you feel that there’s more for you to gain in interpretation and lyrics, then this course is for you!
After 25 years of performing and coaching, I assembled my top 10 tools of zooming into the lyrics.
If you’re a pop singer, a jazz vocalist, or a classical singer – my top ten tools will help you to find and deepen your personal connection with your lyrics.
So you’ll own your song and truly touch your audience. In a way that suits you and the song 🙂
I look forward to helping you make the most of your lyrics! You’re very welcome to join us!
With love from Amsterdam,
