When I conducted my interview
with Laden Ince, our charming and high class opera singer, she told me that she
would love to share her knowledge, her talent with her country by either
writing or teaching.
Just recently she has let me know
that she is prepared to teach music students of all levels and disciplines; she
has already started her first workshop in her Vocal Studio at the City Club/Şehir
Külübü in Nicosia, Dereboyu. That is a lovely place within the military zone, just behind the Checkpoint, a place and its
surroundings that have not changed for the last 40 years. I once went there to
visit a friend, an Austrian lady who has never given up her home, she is now
over 90 years old. Here, in this sort of abandoned fairytale zone, Laden Ince
has set up a space to teach singers, be it in classical singing, opera/operetta,
musical, jazz or pop. When you come to
the checkpoint you just have to leave your ID, that is all.
Laden Ince is occasionally away
from Cyprus to give concerts, the recent ones were in Germany; but in-between
the concerts she comes home and will then take up the teaching.
For students who are interested
to obtain highly profession tuition from a very sensitive and artistic singer
as I can confirm that she is – I love her singing Bach – then contact her and
discuss with her your possibilities. The
costs per hour are very reasonable , TL
100 per hour, I know that singing lessons are usually higher than this.
Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
