Course leaders

Sarah Rieker: Choir conductor, singer.

In my work as vocal-coach, TaKeTiNa rhythm teacher, singing group leader and choir director, I accompany people on their way to developing their voices, experiencing the healing and energising power of singing and finding (back) their rhythmic primal knowledge.
With intuitive singing and instruments rich in overtones (harmonium, n’gouni harp, berimbau, frame drum, crystal singing bowls, zaphir / koshi, flutes), I create sound journeys in which lightness, relaxation and immersion in the innermost source of our being can be experienced.
