Born and raised in Switzerland, Robin De Haas has received many prizes in his singing and academic studies. He pursued a grant as soon as he started his professionnal singing studies and studied with many teachers in Europe and the U.S.A, such as Kurt Widmer, Anne Ramoni and David Jones. Attracted by pedagogy, he pursued the Diploma of Teaching Singing at The Conservatory of Music of Lausanne, Switzerland, which was completed with an award for his diploma work, “Lyrical Singing and Modern Singing, Two Worlds That Are Completely Opposed?”
It was in the pursuit of research to find models of methodology and pedagogy that he met Lynn Martin, a professor of Breathing Coordination and Functional Anatomy at New York University, and Spencer Welch, a voice teacher specialized in vocal technique for contemporary styles.
These meetings began a fruitful collaboration, the goal of which is to release accessory tensions and to realize vocal and artistic potential. Since then, Robin was invited by Ms. Martin to assist her in the Master Class she gave at Sarah Lawrence College, one of the most prestigious arts schools in the United States and to work for some of the most important organizations such as the United Nations for instance.
Recently, Robin was invited to present his work in some of the most prestigious music schools such as the Manhattan School of Music. He also collaborates with several members of the medical community for the application of his work in the field of pathologies.
Finally, in 2015 a major accomplishment happened when Robin’s book La Voie de la Voix was published by Les Editions Favre, the largest French Speaking Editor of Switzerland. That same year, the breathing coordination practitioner training program created by Robin started in the USA with the first group of trainees in Los Angeles.
