Hi, I’m vocal coach Paula, and I’m the owner and founder of Paula Befrits Voice Academy.
I’m trained as an Authorised Complete Vocal Technique teacher at Complete Vocal Institute and specialized in Extreme Vocal Effects.
As a vocal coach since 2005 and former singing teacher at Complete Vocal Institute in Copenhagen, I’ve been coaching more than a thousand singers from all over the world.
And I love it.
My career as a vocal coach and a professional singer touring all over Europe, has given me an understanding of the struggles singers and vocalists experience today.
I am fully aware of the challenges that come with developing vocal technique, performance as well as the physical and emotional demands.
I also know that vocal technique can at times be really confusing and overwhelming.
You get a lot of different and sometimes conflicting information out there.
That's why it’s very important to me that the vocal technique I teach is based on proven methodologies and presented as simplistic and accessible as possible.
I am always here for you so feel free to get in touch with your questions.
I look forward to helping you.
Here's what my students say about me...
“Paula is an amazing teacher!
I’ve studied with different teachers and tried out different methods, however I used to have some persisting issues that I couldn't find a solution for.
The very first lesson I had with Paula, I was floored.
It was the first time ever that I went into a lesson with something that I can't do and by the end of that lesson I was able to sing it with power and conviction.”
- Ivan Mihaljevic
“I was working on my first album when I attended lessons with Paula.
Paula changed EVERYTHING for me.
She cured the anxiety that the voice therapists had given me and made it feel natural to use my voice without constraints.
Paula is fantastic, kooky and talented - she just knows her stuff.
Authentic and trustworthy.”
- Maria Thoms
“Paula does something I haven’t seen other vocal coaches do before.
With Paula I learned to relieve my voice, that was previously beat up pretty bad from the extreme vocal techniques.
I use the techniques actively every single time I practice or perform live.”
- Tim Nederveen
Paula is attentive and calm, yet still insanely sharp.
She offers very concrete and useful advice and manages to pass on techniques in an easily understood manner.‘
- Mai Sydendal
“Paula has helped me use my voice the right way so I don't wear it out.
I’ve achieved great tools, for live performances and in the studio.
In addition to that, I have generally just become a better singer overall, after taking lessons with Paula.”
“I love the course and the training programs, and use it diligently.
It is really easy to go to the exercises and to be able to imitate Paula in the videos continuously.
I'm crazy about it!”
- Thomas Mitchell
