Inês Simões - the teacher
I have been professor of voice, piano, ear training and music theory both privately and within music schools.
I have even been part of a project with classes for babies.
Growing up, my love for singing and classical music definitely came from the wonderful experience I had as a music student. The impact my teachers had on me - from age 4 through to university - has shaped me into the singer I am today and I have always wanted to transmit the same joy to others.
If you are looking for serious work as a voice student - you came to the right place!
My solo career encompasses a wide repertoire - from baroque to contemporary; in opera, oratory and song recital and in numerous languages.
If you are looking to learn the basics of voice or piano or even just begin with music theory - you came to the right place!
My experience of over a decade of teaching, from little 4 month old babies (Gordon method) to private 80 year old enthusiastic students makes me the right teacher for you.
