Maria GoJa – Singer, Composer, Vocalcoach, Singing Teacher
Maria GoJa is a trained vocal coach, singing teacher and singer with more then 15 years of experience as a voice teacher and performer. While graduating from University with a Magister Artium for Music ethnology in 2007, she was researching about singing techniques in different cultures and worked in phoniatry as analyst for vocal sound. She is certified by Landesmusikakademie Berlin as pedagogic trainer for music groups and bands.
Inspired by her studies, further training in bodywork (Alexander Technique, Afro Dance and Tango), further vocal training (functional voice training, Linklater, artistic speech training etc), breath work, acting (Stanislavski) and process oriented work, she developed her teaching method „Balance your control“ based on techniques for Center Gravity Shifting.
Unique for her method is a special emphasis on body work, voice recovery, breathing techniques, functional voice training and process oriented, artistic vocal coaching. Her in depth knowledge of physiological and functional aspects of voice productions allows her to combine a systematic approach with an integral, holistic, process-oriented and artistic one. She offers her work to singers of all genres and for actors and speakers, including training for businesses and inhouse seminars on voice in public speaking.
Since many years she performs as a vocalist (Pop, Jazz, Musical, Chanson and Classic) for projects like Tanger Trio & Ensemble Mondaine, Berliner Solistenchor, Hans-Jörn Brandenburg, Gemma Ray, Beatrix Becker and Once I had a Pony. GoJa writes her own Songs and composes music for Theater and Film.
