Créer l’instrument unique que représente chaque élève grâce à la technique vocale qui lui est enseignée

“The transmission of the knowledge and experience of art that one practises is crucial for the young generations – whether in music, painting, literature, drama or any other artistic branch. We, the ‘elders’, have had the privilege of knowing, working with, and learning from prominent artists that our students will never know and that are, however, at the basis of their learning and the foundations of their future.” José Van Dam

« Donner aux jeunes la confiance et les outils nécessaires à l’épanouissement de leur personnalité artistique, et les aider à se préparer à un métier en perpétuelle évolution. »Sophie Koch
