For over forty years now, Margreet Honig has focused entirely on teaching. For many years she taught at the conservatories of Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
Margreet Honig is frequently invited to give masterclasses and interpretation courses, both in Europe and in North and South America. For example, she gave masterclasses at the conservatories of Zurich, Basel, Hamburg and Versailles and the Conservatoire National Superieur in Paris, the Royal Academy in London and the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia.
She also regularly appears as a guest teacher at the opera studios of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich and the Latvian State Opera.
In honor of her eightieth birthday, the book “Der Freie Ton” by Gordana Crnkovic was published. Margreet wishes to pass on her insights to the next generation of singing teachers. This wish brought her back to the Rotterdam Conservatory (Codarts) where she started a collaboration for a few years to coach the main subject teachers under the name Teach the Teacher, a coaching program that she hopes to expand in the future.
