Holistic Voice Coaching in Zurich
As a long-time professional opera singer who works with her body and her voice every day, with growing stage and performance experience it became my need to deal with the core topic of “voice”. From my own biographical experiences, I found again and again how much the voice – the innermost thing that we humans have and, if necessary, expressing it by speaking out or making the voice sound – is inseparable from our emotions.
This is how I see my voice coaching as a holistic work. The paths I had to take to recognize the emotions behind certain vocal, psychological or physical blockages have challenged me and made me grow as an artist and as a person.
I see my job as an opera singer as a vocation, a gift and an opportunity to move and touch other people by awakening emotions and making them audible.
As a voice coach, my aim is to help my customers – regardless of their age – to perceive and recognize their vocal potential and to express it repeatedly. In addition to my trained ear and eye, I have a large background of knowledge, experience, empathy, curiosity, humor and ease.
I enjoy working with children, teenagers and adults alike.

Melanie has a wonderfully empathetic way of working with you, especially when, as in my case, you’re going through a rather difficult phase as a singer, in which your voice doesn’t want to do as well as your head. Melanie got to the heart of the matter and helped me step by step to find a new, pressure-free and stress-free approach to my voice, thereby opening up completely new ways for me to sing. With Melanie I can simply arrive and – while learning a well-founded and healthy singing technique – let the voice sound freely.
Working with Melanie fascinated me. I have always dreamed of singing and with her I was able to feel, hear and understand the power of my voice for the first time. It felt like liberation! The working process with Melanie touched me on all levels and so I could touch other people with my voice. The project we worked on was very successful. In addition, the collaboration with Melanie is fun, easy-going, professional and really fun. 🙂
With her empathy and mindfulness, Melanie creates a loving environment in which you feel safe, seen and heard. Through her holistic approach, which involves body, mind and soul when singing, she helped me in the most loving way to connect with my strength and to free and strengthen my voice more and more. I am fascinated by how much I was able to learn not only in terms of the technique of singing, but also mindset, releasing blockages and fears from it in a short time and find this experience very healing.
As an astrologer, in the current change of epochs, I recognize a turn to air quality. Breathing, voice and the exchange of self-expression and communication are central to the element of air. My impression is that the voice as an identity outside of the music scene is only just being recognized and I turned to Melanie with the idea of getting to know this instrument better and learning to use it in a more playful way. In weekly lessons I have experienced the voice as an instrument that I can play just like any other. I became aware of a lot about tension / relaxation of the jaw region and I found a new relationship with possibilities of expression through stimulation of the individual body regions. A brief but intense stimulation of consciousness. Highly recommended, thank you dear Meli!
Melanie Forgeron teaches with a lot of commitment and even more competence. Her joy in singing is contagious and turns every lesson into an experience.
But she can also be really strict and persistent, which in turn benefits the student. I feel privileged to be able to take singing lessons with Melanie Forgeron.
The voice coaching at Melanie was legendary. With a lot of humor and lightness she manages to work on the voice, she lovingly deals with inhibitions, so that the topic of shame is given no space and can instead be dealt with pleasure and enthusiasm. THANK YOU
I got to know Melanie during a yoga & voice coaching retreat. With a unique mix of her wonderful energy, humor, expertise and empathy, she conveyed an incredible amount to everyone in the group in a short period of time. It was very enriching and fun to work with Melanie.
Voice coaching – the term does not cover what Melanie transforms in working with the voice! It is great how easy she can read you and how she can improve your feeling of voice and sound enormously with simple little tips. I love the humor and the mutual trust. And I enjoy every coaching from the first to the last minute, also – or precisely because Melanie always finds the right mix between support and challenge. Thank you for using your talent for me!
The lessons with you are so much fun and I love being able to come to you every week. Not only is the class with you great and I learn a lot, but I can also tell you everything and trust you. In the past few years I have made great strides in singing and would like to continue in the same way. I would like to come to you more often, but unfortunately there is not enough time. You help me with many things and have already shown me things that help me in many situations (mantra, meditation, etc.). Thanks a lot for this!
