Singing or English language lessons... Why not both? 

Loes specializes in the interpretation and delivery of lyrics, knowing what you are singing about and delivering the message to the audience with feeling.

If you are looking for a way to expand your English vocabulary (including idioms,  slang, cultural references etc.), improve your pronunciation, and memorize examples of grammar rules in a fun and natural way, nothing beats singing!


Recommended for intermediate to advanced students.
