Voice & Music Theory Lessons

Pop/Jazz and Experimental music

Already more than 12 years I am voice teacher for singers in the field of jazz, r&b, pop and experimental music.

I am interested in research of different sounds and use of human voice. This is something that simply vibrates with me and my students. 


I am working with different aspects of voice and sound, such as, 

vocal preparation, music interpretation, performative skills, improvisation, songwriting, experimental sounds.

Also increasing confidence and presentation skills. And all this through healthy and comfortable way. 

In my professional work experience I worked as Contemporary Singing Teacher at 

Riga Teacher Training and Educational Management Academy for future Jazz and Pop Music Singing Teachers (2015 - 2017)

and Ventspils College of Music (2013 – 2015) in Latvia.

Lessons for all level.

Ilmārs has an highly accurate preparation, accompanied by positivity and passion! The student feels the adventurous joy of an endless journey!

Kristaps Priede: I reccomend to develop your singing skills in guidance of Ilmārs. Great attitude, creativity and musical adventures guaranteed.
