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 professional singing studies and studied with many teachers in Europe and the U.S.A, such as Kurt Widmer, Anne Ramoni and Cornelius Reid. 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 contemporary styles.
These meetings began a fruitful collaboration, the goal of which is to release accessory tensions and to realize vocal and artistic potential. In 2008, 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.
From 2007 to 2010, Robin creates various concepts that allow young singers to go on stage. "And now Sing" and "Don't Stop the Music" are a major success and lead to many contacts and opportunities for young artists to improve their skills and their network.
In 2009, Robin works as a vocal consultant for several albums and he's also responsible for the vocal development of the artists of "The Funambule", a private music school for talented young people near Geneva.
In 2010, he is extremely busy between putting events together, getting his Speech Level Singing Certification, and bringing Breathing Coordination to politicians in Bern, Switzerland. That same year, he starts to work on the post surgery care for damaged voices that are sent to him by Lausanne city hospital. His results are commended by the doctors of the ENT section of the hospital.
In 2011, Robin is hired by the UN as a vocal consultant to Dr. Hamadoun Touré, general secretary of the ITU.
In April 2011, he is invited to perform one of his original songs at the New York University distinguished facult concert. He also becomes the head of the training for Breathing Coordination practicioners.
Aware of the difficulties for artists to start their careers, he's currently working to create a foundation to support artists.
His unique approach allows him to be a solution provider for young and seasoned singers, public speakers, recordings, and any person who has to deal with the psychological pressure that exposure can bring to people.
Robin shares his passion of voice both in Switzerland and in the USA. His respect, his adaptability, the quality of his researches and his profesionalism make him an amazing asset for blossoming vocal skills both on the artistic and the professional fields.
Works in progress are: more workshops with Lynn Martin in Switzerland and in the USA, Breathing Coordination workshops on an international level and collaboration on several albums.
