Hello everyone. My name is Vasili Karpiak.
I am a professional vocal coach with a long established history of teaching and coaching all ages and levels. I am a member of the National Education Union and Musicians’ Union UK. I will give you a good vocal technique, so it will allow you to sing whatever you like, wherever your artistic passion takes you! There are basic rules of singing technique which you need to follow. Follow your dreams, learn, be focused, become yourself in singing, rather than being someone else, once you know how to manage your voice, all the fear, anxiety and muscle blockage will disappear! Garanteed.
- My pupils are absolute beginners, those who are in UK Top chart and those who perform at The Voice and Britain’s Got Talent. As a vocal coach, I was preparing pupils for the roles in a new film by Guy Ritchie “Aladdin” and was coaching members of UK Parliament. My pupils are from all over the world- actors, professional singers who are singing in West End shows, amateurs, members of the aristocracy, people who are bored with their office life and want something really new and enjoyable, musicians, the list can go on and on.
- I was collaborating with the Royal Philarmonic Orchestra on singing educational projects provided for Royal Autistic Society and Royal Society for Blind Children.
I love what I do and it is the biggest pleasure for me to see how the voice is growing and developing. Being a vocal coach makes me simply really happy, as, to be honest, it is an amazing feeling to see your pupil achieving true freedom and artistry in singing, something which, in the majority of the cases, can be achieved through systematic vocal exercises, determination and perseverance.
- My recent interview to The TelegraphI am excited to share with you my recent interview to The Telegraph (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/health-fitness/body/adeles-transformation-singer-slimmed-changed-up-look/) After Vasili Karpiak, an opera singer who has worked with the Royal Opera House, lost weight he found his voice changed. “I realised it’s not my voice any more and I need a different technique. “The voice does change [when you lose weight], simply speaking from physiology. The body has one size and the vibration, the sound and colour is applicable to that size, when you lose a lot of weight you get a different colour. “You get a different space for the sound frequencies that are created as a result of the vocal cords, there is less space for the vibration process.” However, it’s not all bad news: “The stamina of the voice will increase, and if anything I think it has a positive influence on the artist.” Press the link to read more ( you will need to create an account in order to read whole article) or if you want to read my blog press here https://www.telegraph.co.uk/health-fitness/body/adeles-transformation-singer-slimmed-changed-up-look/

Marco is a singer/songwriter and composer born in Barcelona, Spain. Profesionaly trained as a chef, Marco has seen excellence in some of Europe’s Capitals finest 3 michelin starred restaurants. But he always felt like music was his biggest passion.
A fresh aproach on lifetime classics with a native music influence and a latin groove, satisfaction is just the first step of his career. Asking himself if the way we concieve love is necessarily the only one. Past memories and heartbreaks end up beeing a part of who we become.
The videoclip, filmed in the beautiful Barcelona, showcases some of the most emblematic spotlights of the city. Starring the spanish actress Carmen Antón, it is a song easy to vibe to in any relaxed ambiance.
Now working on his first album and planning the next single, make sure to stay in tuned in for what is yet to come!

- I am so happy that my fantastic pupil London-based singer-songwriter KleoNiki announces her single, “Unity!
I am so happy that my fantastic pupil London-based singer-songwriter KleoNiki announces her single, “Unity,” featuring Albanian artist and actor Alban, out February 14. Check video here m.youtube.com/watch?v=hzLPpYGxxD0 The song is inspired by the artist’s vision of troubled world saved by what she calls unity consciousness. “Unity” is bursting with trappy drums and sparkling synths, and the lyrics call for a universal return to unconditional love.
KleoNiki’s burgeoning career already shows promise—her growing profile is bolstered by her successful career as an actress and model in Europe. Tired of the “superficiality” of modern music, she’s embarking on a musical path with the goals of healing, energizing, and giving love. KleoNiki injects a unique depth into her songs inspired by music’s power to share her truth. Self-described as a pop artist with “R’n’B, Hip Hop and jazzy vibes,” she hopes to influence the masses while challenging her listeners to think more deeply. As she works on her album slated for 2021, her contagious energy can only grow stronger from here.

- I provide professional vocal coaching and singing lessons for various styles of music going from pop to opera, jazz, musical theatre and films.
- If you’re searching for a professional Singing Teacher in London who can give you the personalized attention you deserve, look no further! I’m an experienced and knowledgeable singing teacher, having offered my singing lessons and intensive voice training since 2008 to clients in London and worldwide. I can help unlock your full vocal potential by providing the technical guidance and foundational skills you need in order to succeed.
So i turned up for my first vocal lesson ever, being an over 40 year old male , I’m thinking I’m too old for this gig , played guitar for many years, with some great vocalists , but never really tried to sing, apart from in the car when I’m alone , embarrassed zero confidence feeling stupid and almost wondering how I got to even book a vocal lesson, I mean come on , singing isn’t for me , I sound terrible, any how, I’m waiting outside the rehearsal rooms in like the steinway studios, ok I’m about to do a runner , this is way above my grade …. but I’m caught on the way out, by Vasili , he says hello, and already the stress is starting to drain away, awesome karma right from the off , so we begin , within seconds I feel more and more relaxed , he understands my lack of confidence Im a beginner , patient fun encouraging, zip an hour into various fun call and response piano training and physical techniques , and I’m actually hitting some notes , and I don’t think they sound too bad anymore – that was like 1 lesson.I book again for another lesson in the following week, as i wait again outside another great rehearsal facility in central London , out walks a future star operatic singer, I recognize him fro the TV, he was training with Vasili before my lesson, I’m like wow, this guy teaches the stars, and now he has to adjust his lesson back down to my beginners level, which he does effortlessly -, one of those rare people in life , don’t hesitate to book a lesson , its life changing , if your a beginner and thinking about singing , call this guy , he is amazing
The lessons gave me a huge amount of confidence , made me release that songs I used to shy away from, as they were too high for my voice, now are my play ground, Vasili has brought music back into my soul – and for that I can not thank him enough
An amazing teacher! He is able to transform a raw talent in a person into a voice which is almost pitch-perfect very quickly. Aligned with the ability to put people at their ease, he can then encourage them by the use of vocal techniques, to greatly increase their singing abilities. This ability in my view is a gift which he has been given.
I have a musical background and have been involved with choirs. I know how difficult it can be for singers to improve. However, Vasili understands very quickly the weak points of a singer and then can help them improve by gentle encouragement.
He is also a kind understanding gentleman. I thoroughly recommend him.

Vocal Coaching over Skype
Full Vocal Coaching Session via Skype

These sessions consist of efficient vocal exercises which address different vocal problems, working on your repertoire, fast improvement of the vocal range (normally, I improve vocal range after one session) and much more. After working on vocal exercises we will apply them to your actual songs. After only one session everyone sees a big difference

Half an hour session cannot be as efficient as one hour session, but still I will be able to allocate half of the session towards vocal exercises, jaw tension release, release of the root of the tongue, sound projection, articulation exercises . Additionally, we will be able to cover at least one song
If you want to arrange a Skype session, please contact me and I will provide you with all the necessary information. Thank you
