After a few singing lessons with Christer, I have really experienced an amazing change. Now I can sing without straining my voice and it feels fantastic. Now my voice sounds a lot better and I get noticeably more good feedback on what I do as a singer.

I am Christer Aannestad (b. 1984) and this is my background:

After graduating as a singer and singing teacher at NTNU Department of Music in 2009, I have spent countless of hours exploring the newest research connected to vocal technique and physiology for singers and instrumentalists. Have you ever wondered what it really means to sing freely, without any physical problems? And what is really an optimal breath and support? I think the answers to these questions lie in a profound knowledge of vocal technique and curiosity about what actually happens under the skin when we sing. I currently work as an authorized teacher in Complete Vocal Technique (CVT) and soon I am a Timani teacher as well. With these two methods I offer the latest knowledge whitin vocal technique and muscle coordination for singers and instrumentalists. When the body and voice is considered as a unified instrument we can overcome physical barriers and design the personal "sound" we have always wanted.

Complete Vocal Technique (CVT) is a genre independent and research-based methodology founded by the Danish voice researcher, Cathrine Sadolin. CVT claims that all sounds can be produced in a healthy and effortless way without damaging the voice. By following a specific set of rules, you can design your own "sound" and sing just the way you want. Read more about CVT here.

Timani, founded by Tina Margareta Nilssen, can help musicians and teachers to develop a deep understanding of the body and its function while playing and singing, based on anatomy and science. Singers (and instrumentalists) should be able to express their full musical potential without unnecessary physical hinders. Timani offers concrete exercises that optimize the body's use of the muscles, the skeleton and the connective tissues. This will affect the body's muscle coordination and quickly improve your vocal technique.
