Hi! I’m Katja Maria Slotte
I'm dedicated to help you communicate fearlessly and authentically with presence and effortlessness, find and maintain a free and healthy voice, thrive as an artist-preneur and to live an inspired, sustainable life as a creative.
Combining my background as a certified music teacher (BMus, MMus), Authorised Complete Vocal Technique (CVT) Teacher and a keen interest in vocal pedagogy, I enjoy making a synthesis of the many science-based methods that there are to train your voice. The result is a holistic approach, combining body, voice, mind and spirit to achieve optimal vocal freedom and creativity.
In addition to this, I draw from a strong background in music education, and a my own experiences as a performer for over two decades. Learning about singing technique is fun, but it only makes sense if combined with performance and musicianship tools. In the end, we want to sing songs and not just get great at producing different sounds!
Lessons, coaching and mentoring is available in Rotterdam (NL) and online worldwide. Whether you're a performer, professional or aspiring singer actor or speaker, teacher or choir director, I've got tools that will help you unlock your voice, stage-presence and self-confidence, your inner teaching ninja, your productivity and creativity!

What Clients Say
For me, Katja is like a barrel full of knowledge and inspiration from where I can draw whenever I feel stuck. Whether it's a voice related thing, a question about a student I teach, or organizing my work better - after a lesson with Katja I always have new ideas and insights, and it always helps me to get unstuck! I believe you can't wish for a better teacher.
Katja's teaching is very inspirational and out of the general singing teaching box. She's got many ways of getting solution to one problem, her teaching is very diverse. After having participated in Katja's online course, I lost fear! It’s so relieving, it makes you so strong as a learner. Katja's goal exercises helped a lot. They have changed my work ethics and my work structure. To be honest – after her online course, I had a structure in my work for the very first time in my life! And that’s a great feeling.
Katja always puts the student in the spotlight. It's all about YOU and how she can help you the best. She is empathetic and objective at the same time, which makes you feel very comfortable as a student. The teaching tools I have learned are great. Now I feel more like a real voice teacher than I did before!
Katja is a great and enthousiastic teacher, with deep and detailed knowledge of the voice and how it works. I find her lessons inspirational and I recommend her strongly. She's the kind of teacher that makes you sing the songs you never dared to sing and has solutions for every 'problem' along the way. Inspiring!
