Gilles's CV

Stemming from a family of artists, I have studied piano and violin since the age of three, before dedicating myself to acting and singing. I made my solo professional debut in 1985. In 1990, I was named Soloist of the Year, and the following year, European Juventus Laureate. I was invited to perform at the 1991 Cardiff Singer of the World Competition and have since received numerous other awards in Europe, including the 1994 Art Songs Award. I have been teaching internationally since 2000 and also train singing teachers.

Gilles's response

Anirudh has developed so much as a singer, since I first heard him. I am glad I have been able to help him, but my greatest joy is to see how he consistently improves and benefits from the teaching of OperaLab India Junior Teacher Haroon. Keep practising, my dear Anirudh… you are on the right track!

Haroon Akhtar

Perfect! I am writing this for the best teacher and mentor that I know, Mr. Gilles Denizot , without whom my journey as a singer wouldn’t have been a reality. I found the confidence and courage to pursue singing professionally after joining his classes and now I can proudly say that I am doing very well in this field. All credit goes to his dedication towards teaching. He provided me with the tools that opened up parts of my voices which I never thought I could access and helped me sing styles I never thought I would be able to sing. He gently introduces the most important aspects of singing such as Posture, Breath, warming up the voice and so much more. He has been such a help to me in expanding my range and finding new expressions. In my very first lesson with him, he was able to pinpoint a habitual mistake and helped me overcome it. He is always willing to listen to my concerns and let me try new things. I love the feeling that I have after every session with him, I can sing anything!. He’s not only an amazing singer but also an amazing teacher and this combination is pretty rare.I highly recommend his classes to you all, who want to learn singing and eventually become a pro in it.

Gilles's response

As a teacher, there is much joy to be found in meeting new students, but the greatest pride comes when you are allowed to accompany a student for several years. I had noticed Haroon's talent, but it took us a few months for him to join my class. From that moment on, Haroon has not only learned about his voice, he has practised and improved in a variety of genres, including opera. Although he could have stopped there, he kept on learning and turned into a reliable, committed voice teacher. It's been years, and yet we are still training on a weekly basis. From a student with potential to a beloved voice teacher, that's a success story right there!

Gracias por tus generosas palabras, David. He tardado en responder, pero me alegro de haberte ayudado a volver a cantar. ¡Nos vemos pronto!

Jaikumar

Perfect! I am extremely grateful to Gilles Sir and very thankful to my stars that i came across my voice guru. I had always heard about techniques to be a better singer, heard about finding my own voice and also about controlling putch and volume across scales. I never knew how to achieve these until i came across Gilles Sir who changed my musical life. I now understand the finer nuances of vocal techniques all because of Gilles Sir who i belive to be God sent into my life. It has been a desire for me to mesmerise my audiences when i sing to them live. Now I feel closer to achieving this goal and have started getting responses i always longed for. More than anything else, i have started enjoying my own singing a lot more. Thank you Gilles Sir for all you have done for me...

Gilles's response

Jaikumar is an exceptional singer, with a voice that needed just a little guidance. It never takes long to suggest anything, Jaikumar understands the concept and makes it his. Then his artistry moves up to another level (and you can't help but to feel goosebumps all over). Keep singing, Jai, keep singing!

AANCHAL

Perfect! It was great !

Gilles's response

Finally, after many attempts, I had the pleasure of teaching Aanchal. She is a dedicated and avid student who understands the importance of healthy, comprehensive vocal training. I look forward to helping Aanchal find her true voice and develop as a singer!

Anoushka

Perfect! Gilles Sir was my very first vocal coach at the age of 18. I have studied with him for three years and ever since I’ve sung in different opera houses all over the world. I could not have asked for a better coach. To just call him a vocal coach would be an understatement, because he contributes to your artistic and creative life like no other. He was the one who introduced me to the world of opera and I’ve never looked back since. He definitely is a master of the voice, there’s almost never a problem unsolved when you approach him. Be it technique, interpretation, performance, he can be trusted with it all.
And at the end of the day you are left with the most amazing experience of a class and a wonderful human being.

Gilles's response

An exceptional student, right from her audition years ago in that tiny Chennai conservatoire room. Anoushka is one of the rare young opera singers of India who kept studying and growing. I wish her, as always, the very best!

Hi, I am Anirudh Iyer, a Singer-Songwriter from Mumbai. I am honoured to be writing about Gilles Sir, truly a great vocal coach. One session with him is enough to make an impression of how great a teacher he is. He has a number of immediate healthy Solutions to any of our vocal problems. He is a true inspiration and such a friendly person to be learning from and I believe that anyone learning from him will surely evolve as a singer by understanding aspects such as Discovering your range, finding your true Voice, performing with versatility and the best of all, never getting tired during hours of performances, which i believe is the biggest nightmare for performing artists. I am sure that one can be completely secure with his voice when learning from such a great Teacher.

Hi! My name is Haroon Akhtar, Singer & Vocal coach from India. I am writing this for the best teacher and mentor that I know, Mr. Gilles , without whom my journey as a singer wouldn’t have been a reality. He provided me with the tools that opened up parts of my voices which I never thought I could access and helped me sing styles I never thought I would be able to sing.

He is always willing to listen to my concerns and let me try new things. I love the feeling that I have after every session with him, I can sing anything!

I have been learning since 2013 and till today every session of his is filled with so much knowledge and I always look forward to his sessions. Now I am also a part of a Teachers Training session where he shares his wisdom on how to be a better teacher. He is highly knowledgeable about vocal anatomy and physiology and even more importantly, he can automatically translate that into practical, accessible instructions.

He has the teaching gift of establishing instant rapport with the students while always eliciting focused work from them. You'll be amazed how he blends opera techniques with Indian classical music. For me he is not just a teacher he is a complete university , he has taught me everything from the importance of punctuality to preparing the lessons, performance, interpretation. For your one issue he has more than 10 solutions, specific to each student's requirement, be it indian, western, sufi, or pop. Not only does He conduct a clear and efficient lesson, he is also super encouraging and supportive!



His years of wisdom and dedication to his craft and his kind nature makes him the best for learning this beautiful art form singing and I would proudly recommend Mr. Gilles to anyone who wants to sing with freedom and do those high notes and float with the music.

Thank you very much for everything dearest Gilles sir.

Sriram

I’m Sriram (Singer-Music Producer-Media Professional) writing to recommend my guru, Gilles.

His wizardry as a voice coach will leave you astonished, wanting for more. Gilles sir’s legacy as a teacher shines in the independence and unshakable trust he has developed in his students. The efficacy of his result oriented teachings, simplicity of language, and attention to detail barely defines the vastness of what he can offer.

Over the course of my time with Gilles sir, his guidance in nurturing my inner voice as an artist and strengthening my sense of intuition has helped me immensely. Learning under the safe tutelage of Gilles sir, without any inhibitions, one can finally fall in love with the beauty of learning, and indulge in the process of growth.

Shivam

Hello! I'm Shivam Katoch. I'm glad I got an opportunity to learn from Gilles Sir. He is an outstanding vocal coach. He has an extraordinary acumen in understanding voices. Personally, i can't be more thankful to him. He changed my perception towards voice production and vocal techniques. Apart from this he is a wonderful human being!

He has been extremely patient with me. You will notice some great changes in your voice once you follow his teachings. He resolved some major issues in my voice like Singing on pitch, body posture, breath management etc.
You'll be amazed how he blends opera techniques with Hindustani music.

I would highly recommend Gilles sir to any student for voice training.

El señor Gilles es el mejor profesor de voz que he conocido en mi vida. Él es el mejor, sus técnicas son increíbles, es beneficioso para todos los géneros musicales. Es un gurú asombroso y también la forma en que explica las cosas es muy simplificada y siempre siento que mi voz está segura en sus manos y eso es lo que todos debemos buscar en un gurú o maestro. Las mejores técnicas de ópera y todas las técnicas se pueden utilizar para el canto indio y occidental. Todas las técnicas están hechas a medida de cada individuo. Comenzará a notar los cambios cuando practique regularmente los ejercicios que se le han asignado. Gracias, señor Gilles, por trabajar tan duro y moldear como artista.

I’ve been learning from Mr Gilles Denizot for the past 5 months and the learning has been very enriching and encouraging.
A very friendly, loving, caring and understanding teacher. He has the right balance of discipline and freedom in his class and his teaching. Everything from his punctuality to his lesson preparation, from guidelines to review sessions are so filled with insights, his years of wisdom and dedication to his craft and his compassion and kindness. Im very grateful to have met a teacher like Mr Gilles Denizot.

Aanchal

I would like to give my feedback about Mr. Gilles Denizot.

I am really thankful to him for helping me out with the biggest, basic technique which is one of the most important pillar of singing , that is breathing. My voice has become stronger and I give the credit to him.

I have been singing from 15 years , but recently came to know the most important part of singing which I was wrong at.

His one session ( only ) has helped me improve manifolds.
He addresses to everyone's individual problem areas and needs.
I have really found an amazing teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable about the while voice and the vocal System.

I would highly recommend him to any student who wants to take vocal training and lessons.

G
Geet

I’m Geet Sagar, a professional singer from India, and have even been the winner of one of the biggest ever music reality shows (X Factor), but if I had to name one person who can pretty much take all credit for my singing abilities, it is Mr. Gilles. An incredible voice coach, he helped me ‘find my voice’ and reach my best potential by correcting and teaching me the right techniques. I’d been struggling with it for 13 years, and just a few days under his guidance changed my life - and this is no exaggeration. It's a pity I found him 4 years after I won the talent show. He is not only a masterful teacher, but a lovely human being. Learning from him has not been a fortune and a privilege, but also a pleasure. I'd recommend him to any earnest music aspirant with my eyes shut.

Review from Gilles

QUESTION 01 | 08
¿Desde cuándo tienes esta pasión por la música y más concretamente por tu instrumento preferido?
Gilles — Nacido en una familia de músicos, ¿tenía la posibilidad de no apasionarse por la música? Sentado al piano desde los tres años, también aprendí muy pronto que odiaba el violín y la teoría musical, pero más tarde que la ópera representaba la unión de la música, el texto y el teatro. No había forma de resistirse...
QUESTION 02 | 08
¿Qué canción podrías escuchar en bucle siempre con el mismo entusiasmo (sin volverte tarumba)?
Gilles — Isoldes Liebestod (Wagner), en la versión de Jessye Norman, para la L final de Lust. En otros estilos: F.O.R.E.V.E.R. (James Blake), Raag Bhairavi (Pandit Jasraj), Beirut (Ibrahim Maalouf), Gracias a la vida (Mercedes Sosa)...
QUESTION 03 | 08
Cuéntanos la clase más difícil que has tenido o la más sorprendente.
Gilles — Ser llamado a trabajar con un grupo de cantantes candidatos a un reality show en la India, sin ninguna preparación y ¡directamente frente a las cámaras! Difícil, sorprendente, ¡pero muy divertido!
QUESTION 04 | 08
Según tu opinión, ¿cuál es el instrumento más difícil de tocar? ¿Por qué?
Gilles — Cada instrumento tiene su grado de dificultad, pero la voz es sin duda el más misterioso, el más fascinante también, porque es invisible. El cuerpo es el instrumento y el instrumento está contenido en el cuerpo. Para aprender a cantar (y enseñarlo), se necesita un conocimiento serio de la anatomía, pero también hay que saber imaginar y sentir, identificar las sensaciones, crear reflejos, construir y desarrollar el instrumento, domarlo y aceptar que la voz es esquiva...
QUESTION 05 | 08
Según tú, ¿Cuáles son las claves del éxito? (descartando la de sol y la de fa)
Gilles — Paciencia, paciencia, paciencia (y la clave de do, a veces)
QUESTION 06 | 08
Cita 3 músicos con los que te morirías por hacer un dueto en un bar a las 2 de la mañana y porqué.
Gilles — Jamie Cullum, Chet Baker, Astor Piazzolla (porque sería una estupenda sesión, hasta el amanecer...)
QUESTION 07 | 08
Cuéntanos una anécdota relacionada con tu trabajo como profe o que tengas de la época como alumn@.
Gilles — Entonces sólo era el ayudante del profesor que me estaba formando para enseñar. Le esperaba en Europa para una sesión de clases que iba a dar a sus cantantes profesionales. Cuando fue detenido en Nueva York, me llamó para pedirme que le sustituyera. Entonces me di cuenta de que nunca te sientes realmente preparado, pero que tienes que aprovechar estas oportunidades...
QUESTION 08 | 08
¿Cuál es tu táctica para que tus alumn@s te consideren todo un Superprof?
Gilles — No hay táctica, y no me interesa. Lo importante es estar dispuesto a conocer, escuchar, descubrir, respetar, ayudar y amar...
