“For me, yodelling is an expression of strength, joie de vivre and love of nature.”
Info About My Yodel Seminars
Yodelling is an ancient way of communicating over long distances especially in the mountains. From the original tone sequences for the transmission of warning or help calls, information or even gossip, in the course of time, an own style of singing has developed, which we associate today with yodelling.
For me it is an expression of joy, courage, strength, love of life and love of nature. Learning to yodel is fun, good mood, healthy and awakens our natural primal power. The straddle of the right mixture of an entertaining, musical learning and natural fun succeeds me since meanwhile 10 years in my yodel seminars. They are conceptually designed to spark enthusiasm and joy in making music together through group singing and yodelling, and incidentally to strengthen concentration, well-being and love of nature in the course participants. Yodelling grounds us, brings us back to our roots in nature and is a special expression of the natural beauty and power of a contented life.
Especially when singing and yodeling in a group, we can meet each other in a particularly intense and pleasant way that is difficult to describe.
One of the top priorities for me during yodeling seminars and events is that it should not be awkward or embarrassing for anyone. As we train our singing technique, our attention goes more to the gut and we get closer to our very own feelings as a result. A common frequency, a harmony, is created in the group. Music connects.
I want to help people rediscover and develop their very own musical joy. Music for me is something like food for the soul and reward for the child in us. It is an honor for me to provide you with the necessary knowledge for this and to give you the necessary tools. Because I’m convinced it’s never too late to have a happy childhood.

FAQ – Answers To Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I learn yodeling?
What develops the singing voice helps the speaking voice at the same time. Being able to speak with a strong and convincing voice boosts self-confidence and significantly changes the effect you have on others.
Can it be embarrassing at the yodeling seminar?
No! I pay a lot of attention to making sure that it is pleasant for all participants. Forced auditioning, as was practiced in many schools a few decades ago, can create negative beliefs and dislikes -even fears. My yodeling seminars are led by me in a relaxed and mindful manner, so that such situations certainly do not arise. On the contrary, deep-seated, painful convictions can even be positively triggered and transferred into a resolution process. There has already been a lot of positive feedback from course participants on this topic.
I can't sing - what should I do at the yodeling seminar?
Although we use the voice every day, most of us have never dealt with the theoretical and practical knowledge bases of voice training. The ability to sing, like the ability to speak, is in principle inherent in every human being. It is more a question of technique and basic confidence to use this tool “voice” even better.
What framework conditions are required?
When we are outdoors the clothes should be suitable for the weather. In closed rooms, no special preparation is required. Only break catering and drinks should be organized or available – singing makes you hungry and thirsty and the vocal chords want to be moistened…
Are any previous experience or special talents required?
No, in principle, anyone who can speak can also sing. In the yodeling seminar, we will work on the corresponding breathing and singing techniques, so prior knowledge or special talents are not required.
Where can you hold a yodeling seminar?
Generally everywhere – best of course in beautiful weather in the open air. In case of uncomfortable weather or planning an in-house event, a room large enough for the group should be available – gladly both combined!
What if someone is not musical?
When we work with our voice, we always influence our well-being and our psyche at the same time. It is a form of self-regulation that can be used by anyone regardless of musicality. Everyone starts from a different level of knowledge – we learn together and progress piece by piece with fun and joy.
What happens when it rains or snows?
As a rule, in case of bad weather, it is more advantageous to go to a sheltered, warm and sufficiently large place where the participants feel comfortable. There are no special requirements for this.
What are the side effects of a yodeling seminar?
Here is an excerpt of the results from thousands of participants:
- Significant improvement of the speaking voice
- Working through problems with embarrassing situations (public speaking / singing / lecturing, etc.)
- Best suited for convinced critics (“I can’t sing”)
- Calming the central nervous system
- Improvement of creativity, social interaction and performance, among other things, because singing and yodeling leads out of the “Fight/Flight/Freeze” mode – into the “Relaxed” mode
- Strengthening the sense of belonging of the group
Can you really learn to yodel in a few hours?
All learning begins with current skills and is a developmental process. The greatest learning success occurs with fun and enthusiasm, this has long been scientifically proven (among others by the neurobiologist and brain researcher Prof. Dr. Gerald Hüther).
