To push back against our present claustrophobia and general paralysis, I'm offering a little series of online masterclasses. Each installment will feature 2-3 singers for 30-45 minutes, live-streamed on Facebook, for a total of about 1½ hours. The coachings will be completely free of charge, for the participants as well as the audience.
Each singer should choose an aria or an art song, which we will then work on together – exactly as in a normal live coaching.
Since online transmissions are often a bit „iffy,“ the singers should first make a video of themselves singing their piece, either with live accompaniment or with playback. (If necessary, I can provide a recording of the piano part.) This recording will be played at the beginning of the coaching, and then we will work together live - preferably in English, so that as many people as possible can understand!
The participants are free to post the coaching themselves afterward or use it in any way they like. 
It's my hope that, aside from the purely musical benefits, the participants can gain some good PR from this project. And in this way, we can make a statement in the present difficult situation, learn from each other and give each other courage!
