17th - 22nd of September
  • ⁠Do you find that your voice is inconsistent, breaking or doesn’t carry well?

  • ⁠Do you need help reaching high and powerful notes, or you experience tension in your voice while singing?

  • Would you like to become a professional singer, but your lack of vocal technique and limiting beliefs about yourself are holding you back?

Now is the time to get to know your voice and create reliable, authentic vocals you will truly love!

Ernest Renoux Atelier and why France?

Imagine yourself seated in the gardens of Maison Renoux in France, nestled along the Marne River surrounded by lush vineyards. This sacred haven once belonged to Ernest Renoux, a renowned French Impressionist painter celebrated for his contributions to the Petit Palais in Paris, where his timeless artworks still grace the walls, and whose spirit still whispers through these halls. Picture yourself there, enjoying a leisurely tea or a refreshing beverage on a warm summer evening. It's the very place I've chosen to host this year's "Your Vocal Journey Retreat" in France.

I had the privilege of visiting Ernest Renoux's Impressionist home in September 2023, as a participant in a personal development retreat led by my mentor, Colette Streicher. The moment I stepped inside, I felt a real sense of creative energy, and that feeling has stayed with me ever since. I knew right then and there that this was the perfect place to host my very own vocal retreat. And so it came to be, living the dream! For which I am very grateful!

Twist and turns of training your vocals


My name is Kinga, and I am an authorized CVT singing teacher (more about me here). Although my journey to this title and achieving vocal freedom had more twists and turns than a snake with an itch, I confirm that anyone can learn to sing! I understand how confusing, time-consuming, and effort-consuming learning to sing can be, and I want to make it easier for you. I know all about the mysteries linked to understanding support, the difficulty of reaching high notes, singing in pitch, or hoarseness caused by tension in your larynx - it can be overwhelming. The good news is singing freely can be achieved - and it’s not as complicated as you might think! If you are only willing to put in a little effort and determination, I am living proof of that. I wasn't born with natural talent - some people think that only a select few can sing and that it's impossible to learn. However, I believe I can teach anyone how to sing. After years and years of training myself vocally, I found the method which opens up and gives you control over your voice, as well as methodological knowledge about your vocal apparatus and your anatomy, so you can get to know and love your voice even more. I’ve done the hard bit, and now I would like to help you to achieve your vocal goals. It doesn’t have to take such a long time as it did for me. You just need the right tools and someone to show you how! I created this retreat to equip you with a toolbox so you can sing confidently, achieve your goals, and feel better about yourself. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or already singing. I will help you overcome your vocal technique obstacles.

The retreat will take place from September 17th to 22nd, spanning 5 days in Romeny-sur-Marne. It will be a retreat dedicated not only to improving your vocal technique but also to personal growth. That’s why there are two main aspects to this retreat: Vocal Technique and finding your authentic sound.

Have you experienced difficulties in projecting your voice, especially with high notes? Have you found that your voice doesn't sound the way you want it to, struggling with reaching high notes or producing loud volumes because your voice is too airy? Look no further! You can look forward to 5 days of learning CVT at the technical part of this retreat, experimenting with sound, and refining your vocal technique under my guidance, which is based on stable and reliable vocal techniques scientifically confirmed. You need a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of your voice so you can stop guessing, trying without results, and wasting time on ineffective singing lessons!

The retreat will also focus on finding authenticity in your voice. If you have ever doubted your talent, felt like you were not good enough, compared yourself to others, and ended up feeling worse. Stop it! Singers need to have a positive relationship with themselves. It’s crucial to understand what you want to express with your singing, what music resonates with you, who you are as a singer, and what truly inspires you. This is how you’ll find your authenticity. There is only one person in the world like you, and trust me, what you have to offer in your singing is unique and beautiful. I will help you dig a bit deeper to find it!

These two aspects of the retreat are intertwined because technique without a soul is like a body without spirit, and a soul without technique lacks foundation.

Your Vocal Journey Retreat Overview


The Vocal Technique Part

We will focus on the CVT (Complete Vocal Technique) method in the vocal technique part of the retreat. We'll cover topics such as:

Support - Do you find yourself running out of breath while singing and struggling to control airflow? No more mysteries - you'll learn how the diaphragm works, what "hold back the breath" means, and which muscles in your body are responsible for support during singing.

Twang - Do you tend to sing too breathily? Struggle with reaching high notes or projecting your voice? Twang will help solve these issues. It's a fascinating and enjoyable topic to explore.

Vocal modes - Neutral, Curbing, Overdrive, and Edge - Each mode has its own set of rules to follow. We'll dive into each one, helping you gain a deeper understanding of your voice. You'll learn to sing loudly, softly, and at medium volume. Hitting high notes in the chorus won't be intimidating anymore. Additionally, you'll learn how to transition between modes to create an authentic sound, turning your song into a pure work of art. This is why we call ourselves the Art of Voice Studio🙂

Vocal effects - Want to sing like a real rock star but nervous about distortion? I'll teach you how to produce it healthily. Fancy a bit of RnB sound but struggling with tricky riffs and runs? There's a method to break them down into manageable parts, and I'll guide you through learning them painlessly. Fancy singing a bit of a powerballad and perhaps your vibrato is a bit unrefined and uncontrolled? There are three types of vibrato, and I'll introduce you to each one.

Can you see that with so many possibilities for your voice, you'll not only gain confidence in singing but also in performing on large stages?

The second aspect of the retreat is its emotional and spiritual dimension, focused on authenticity.

I have been a professional singing teacher for about 9 years now, and I have encountered various people along my journey - from the more talented to those who needed more time to discover their vocal world. While learning vocal technique is very logical and most people eventually grasp it, there are often various beliefs that can hinder the development of any singer - lack of self-confidence, the belief that they are not good enough, lack of self-belief, and an open mind. That's why I've created the second part of the workshop, where we will work on your mindset, define your path, and goals. We will be using MAP and heart coherence method that will allow you to look deeper into yourself and identify what limits you from achieving your goals.

Furthermore, we will address aspects such as determining your values and analysing aspects of your life such as environment, identity or skills. Therefore, you will be able to leave France with a full understanding of yourself and a plan for further action.

The spiritual part will include:

  •  Working on traumas and limiting beliefs, MAP sessions,

  • Heart coherence meditation and affirmation - We will start everyday session with an intention for the day and finish the day with a sharing circle. 

  •  Setting up your goals,

  •  Find & research your unique sound,

  • Magnetic alignment,

  • The three-chair exercise,

What is Heart Coherence?

Did you know? The Heart Has Brain Cells!

Recent scientific discovery shows that the heart has the same cells as in the brain. 

It's a method which helps you to align your brain and heart together. Recent scientific discovery has proven that in the heart we have 40k brain cells which are the same as the one in the brain. So we can say that the  heart has its own little brain, feel and think independently of the cranial brain. If we create a disharmony in our heart by being in constant stress and anxiety we may block our creative side, ability to be open and intuitive. By using a method of Heart and Brain coherence you synchronise these two major organs together creating more harmony in your entire body system which opens the door to your creativity, higher thinking and intuition, making it easier for you to get into flow and come up with new creative ideas for your artistic work. 

More about Heart and Brain coherence :

I believe that these two aspects complement each other because to sing well, one must meet both requirements - have good vocal technique and authenticity, know who you are as a vocalist, and have your style, and vision for yourself - no one wants to be another Adele or Ariana Grande.
