"To become a successful singer requires more than merely a good technique."

~ Margreet Honig

Courses and workshops 2023


Zen, Singing and Acting
The summer course Zen, Singing and Acting was founded in 2009 and takes place every year at L'Huy Préau in France. During this six-day summer course, in addition to the vocal singing technique, attention is also paid to the physical and mental awareness . For example, drama lessons are given, and meditation sessions are held. The underlying idea is that when a singer feels physically and mentally strong, it shows on stage.
The permanent team of the course consists of Margreet Honig (individual singing lessons), Marc Brookhuis (Zen) and Elsina Jansen (group lessons acting / drama) and pianist Daan Boertien.
The course accommodates a maximum of ten international singers every year.

Teach the teacher
The workshop ‘Teach the Teacher’ is all about collaboration. Here vocal teachers and students get together in order to strenghten and develop each other through intensive questioning and discussion.
The workshops will be supervised by Margreet Honig, who is very eager to share her insights and experiences with the future generation of vocal teachers.
Some of the teachers also attend the Margreet Honig Summer Academy and Zen, Singing and Acting courses. A great way to stay up to date on the developments of the MHF is to subscribe to our newsletter.

In the context of Teach the Teacher, the MHF Studio has been developed. Aspiring singing teachers are coached in teaching by Margreet Honig. This two-year training program consists of 9 sessions per year. The following singing instructors have successfully completed this program: Kirila Kraal, Erik Slik, Hetty Gehring, Bert van de Wetering, David van Laar, Frank Hermans, Sterre Kooi.
