Arts Manager

I am also a professional arts manager (master program at the University of Arts). Besides business I use my competency for non-profit work as a member of the board of Minna Canthin talo ry.

An Efficient Combination of Theory And Practice

Participating to Estill Courses was one of the best choises I have made in order to improve my skills as a singer and a teacher.

The Estill model of the functions of the voice created by the American researcher and pedagogue Jo Estill unites research and practice in a unique and powerful way to improve singing and speaking. No wonder singers, actors, speech therapists and teachers use it around the world!

I accomplished the certification of an Estill Master Trainer in 2015.
