The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance has announced they will be holding a masterclass with NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen on the 8th December:
On Monday 8th December, the Institute is excited to welcome symphonic metal singer Floor Jansen to give an exclusive masterclass to Institute students; with a public masterclass being held the day before.
Floor started her career fronting the Dutch metal band After Forever, and now singing for NIGHTWISH and REVAMP. After graduating from one of the Institute’s International partner schools, Rockacademie in Tilburg, Netherlands, she continued studying music theatre and opera at the National Conservatory for two years. She has featured as a guest vocalist on many albums for artists such as Ayreon, Star One, Devin Townsend, and Mayan. She has also starred in live shows including Lowlands, Games in Concert, Christmas Metal Symphony, Epica, Doro and many more.
The session, for all singers, will focus on basic and advanced vocal techniques and song interpretation. It will cover techniques which are used to keep the voice healthy and strong as well as tools to make the story of a song come alive. Floor hopes to help the participants to learn more about themselves regardless of their experience and to help them to bring some new insights to their singing.
Floor has been teaching vocals since 2003 and has been running her masterclass entitled ‘Your Voice’ in the Netherlands, Sweden and Finland this year. The Institute is very pleased to offer Floor the chance to run a public masterclass on Sunday 7th December, followed by an exclusive free event for Institute students the next evening. About her London classes, Floor commented; “I am exited to work with singers who would like to challenge themselves to find their sound, to cross boundaries while stepping out of their vocal comfort zone, to inspire and get inspired!”
