Have you ever been curious about classical music, but didn't know where to start? Maybe you felt that you weren't smart enough, or educated enough, or were put off by music theory classes. Maybe you simply feel overwhelmed by just how MUCH music there is to discover!
This is the moment for you to start engaging with classical music, through a personalised, guided discovery session!
A little about me...
My name is Kayla, and I am the founder of Sound Garden : classical music immersion. I trained as a classical/opera singer in New Zealand, and am now based in Paris, France. As well as singing, I have a passion for opening up the world of classical music to new listeners - no knowledge of music theory or performance skills necessary! Sound Garden was founded during the COVID lockdowns; here I create and share products and content designed to help people of all ages to connect with classical music.
Lessons and Classes
I am now offering online classical music immersion sessions, where you can discover the works, composers, and history of classical music in an interactive way, and learn how to integrate classical music into your daily life.
So, how does it work?
Fill out the short form at the bottom of this page with some information about your level of musical knowledge, your musical interests, your general interests, and any other useful points. You'll find two versions: One regular PDF, and one editable.
Once I receive your completed form, I will contact you to finalise a session plan, provide payment details and refund/reschedule policy, and determine a suitable date and time.
During the session, we'll explore 3-5 musical works according to your interests and experience. We'll discuss elements of the composer/s, context/s, and music, and complete some activities related to each one. We'll complete a reflection and plan the next steps of your classical music listening journey
No prior knowledge necessary (lessons will be tailored for all levels of knowledge and experience!), and you can book for one-off or regular sessions. You can also combine a classical music immersion session with a voice lesson.
Lessons are available in English or French. Group classes available by arrangement.
