Music has played a big role for Mariella Baier since she was a child. The Lichtenfels native learned piano and flute, played in various ensembles and orchestras and was already regularly on stage as a teenager. It was no surprise that she decided to study to become a teacher, specializing in social and music education. During these studies, Mariella discovered her love for classical singing and was encouraged by her professors to train her voice.
That's why, after her state examination, she decided to study singing at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels and then traveled regularly to NYC, Belgium, Austria and Switzerland to work with singing teachers and coaches, give concerts and take part in opera productions.
Mariella gained her first music education experience during her studies and taught flute, singing and early musical education. In addition, she now also works as a teacher of German as a foreign language and combines her passion for language and singing in her work as a German Diction Coach. She not only coaches young singers at the San Francisco Opera Studio, but also works with professional singers and conductors on the German pronunciation of their repertoire.
In her singing lessons, the focus is on the joy of singing. It creates a pleasant atmosphere in which the singing students try out their voices and learn breathing and singing techniques and apply them to their repertoire.
