My wide-ranging education and diverse professional experiences have prepared me to find the true voice in every singing student, to see to their musical development, and to equip them for life as a professional singer.
My formal university and conservatory studies included not only vocal and musical training under outstanding teachers, but also advanced courses in psychology and pedagogy. My lifelong study of human behavior has led me to unique understanding of the singer’s psyche.more
Therefore Brewer International’s aim is to help all students to self-knowledge. In doing so we collaborate with Dilruba Saatci, life coach extraordinaire. In order that all artists associated with Brewer International realize to the greatest extent possible their individual vocal and musical capacities, they must understand their own personal health. When alternative medical methods are desired we work with Michael Dollendorf, who specializes in “the alternative medical approach for the performing artist.”
Dilruba is working since 2006 as an artist-shadow and personal coach at Brewer International. She has developed an impressive client list and concentrates specifically in concepts of body and verbal communication and motivation.
In 2011 she graduated from the Berlin Academy (AHAB), certifying her in personal coaching, stress management coaching, and as an instructor of autogenic training and progressive muscle relaxation. (Source: Saatci Coaching)
The former musician, Michael Dollendorf, encountered the practice of Chinese Medicine in 1986 while living in San Francisco. There he lived for more than 10 years. In 1997 he moved to Berlin where he received his training as a medical practitioner and where he was granted full medical licensing by the Department of Health in Hohenschönhausen, Germany. He specializes in two major areas: Acupuncture and Chinese Pharmacology.
Michael's work within the musical world, solving issues directly related to the performing artist, (muscular and otherwise) has made him a household name. (Source: Praxis für chinesische Medizin)
André Aue, born in Hamburg, is one Germany’s top photographers. Based in Hannover and Berlin, André has gained international renown for his portrait, editorial, fashion, and street photography.
I met André through a great friend of Brewer Internationl, the dance artist David Tobin. Working easily with André in his Hannover studio, I witnessed how deftly he captured the soul of a young, introverted artist with his camera lens. She was ecstatic with the experience and with the results.
André has quickly become a favorite of Brewer International artists. His work is extraordinary, worth every cent. I recommend him most highly.
