Classical Voice teacher
„Singing educates the taste, enriches and ennobles the mind, and
directs the will to good.“
(Eugenie Schumann 1851-1938, German music writer, biographer of her parents, Clara und Robert Schumann)
The joy, and love of, and dedication to classical singing and classical music are at the centre of
Patricia Argast’s teaching. In addition to the technical and musical content of her teaching, the
individual, their vocal-musical expression, their personal development, their origins and cultural
awareness are important to her.
As a classical singer and vocal teacher trained in the Bel Canto school, in which the beauty of the
sung tone has a high priority, she sees herself as a teacher between tradition and modernity. The
range of her teaching activities is very broad.
Since 2003, Patricia Argast has been teaching Classical Singing at the Freiburg im Breisgau University of
Music, Hochschule für Musik Freiburg im Breisgau, and has taught students on various courses of study.
In addition, in 2014 Patricia Argast became Head of Vocal Studies at the Music School Rheinfelden/ Baden, where she mainly cares for and promotes children’s and youth voices.
For children’s and youth voices Patricia Argast has furthered her education at Stimmwelten of the Hochschule der Künste (HDK) Bern, with Prof. Dr. med. Michael Fuchs, Leipzig, and at the Bundesakademie Trossingen.
Privately, Patrica Argast teaches voice students from all over the world who have already completed their studies, are at the beginning of their career and / or are preparing for auditions.
