About me

Music and being on stage has been a determining part of my life since the age of 7. I had played the violin for ten years and learned to play the piano at a basic level on my own. During my high school years I attended the Musical Studio of Budafok for 2 years, and my success there motivated me to continue my studies at the Gór Nagy Mária Drama School. At the same time I founded the Musical Studio of Zsámbék with my mother as a co-founder. We wanted to create a community where, in addition to musical education, we would take great care to teach students movement, elocution, to love and appreciate working together, and to build a healthy self-confidence on stage and in everyday life.

I graduated from the Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Primary and Pre-School Education, with a degree of pre-school education. While studying at the university I completed the basic course at the Fame Studio, where I had the privilege to learn from such renowned people as Gábor Forgács (basics of dubbing), Gábor Gönczi (television presenting) Gyula Éliás Jr. (singing), Béla Király (dancing). As a student of the Magyar Hajnal Singing Studio Dávid Nádor, Bálint Bokodi and Hajnal Magyar taught me singing. As an actor I have been cast in plays at Proscenion Drama Stage.
I have tried my hand in many different styles of bands: NOVO (pop-rock), Seven Days Jam (acoustic pop-jazz), NeoClassX (rock-metal). Currently I sing in Intermezzo (rhythm & soul) and I play my role in my first band of my own, the Ray Charles Band (big band), as band leader, vocalist and violinist.

„MUSIC IS NOT JUST ABOUT LEARNING MUSIC. SINGING LIBERATES, ENCOURAGES, AND HEALS US FROM INHIBITIONS AND SHYNESS. CONCENTRATES, IMPROVES PHYSICAL AND MENTAL DISPOSITION, MAKES YOU WANT TO WORK, MAKES YOU MORE FIT, AND TEACHES YOU ATTENTION AND DISCIPLINE.” /Zoltán Kodály/

I’ve been teaching singing for nearly ten years now, with modern, up-to-date training methods. For professional performers and beginners alike. My lessons are personalised; I tailor the material to my students’ needs, goals and existing skills. I basically help with voice training, regardless of genre. And for those who need it, I also incorporate elocution and performing arts into the lessons. For those students who would like to sing in front of an audience, I provide performance opportunities and prepare those who would like to take the challenge of a competition.

Melinda Figura

Fate has brought me together with many fantastic artists, both well-known and less popular. For a few years I was a permanent member of the Bon Bon band, the Stand Up band in Szeged, I played with the Cserháti Tribute Band, and with Andi Szulák among many others. I’ve stood on the stage of the Arena in front of thousands of spectators as a soloist with the Palladio Orchestra, I’ve worked on a great ocean liner, travelling to many parts of the world. There was the fantastic Latin band led by Hugo Sanchez (Cafe Latino) or the Ricardo Salsa Club, which made the dreams of Richárd Révész come true. We released an album in the ‘electro swing’ style under the name of Sugar Daddys. I was there during the formation and the early days of the Garami Funky Staff. I stood on the stage of the Moulin Rouge, many years ago. Not so long ago I had unforgettable experiences as a soloist of the Vangelis concert with the Savaria Symphony Orchestra conducted by Alex Nyers. Now I am shaping and forming the Figurák band.

I was happy to accept Szidónia’s invitation to join the professional team of Magánének.hu. I am convinced that with my decades of experience and the individualized training themes of Magánének.hu I can offer a real solution to all the brave applicants to live out their singing and performing ambitions. ”

I have been singing since I was a child. I started my studies at the Music School of Kőbánya, specialising in private singing, and later trained my voice with private teachers. In 2012 I turned to acting, studying elocution and voice training, acting and character building in acting groups, and the basics of dubbing in various training courses and study groups.

I made my debut as a musical actor under the direction of Andrea Szmatana as a member of the Hétköznapi Broadway Hősök musical company in Kistarcsa. I sang baritone and tenor in the Budapest Show Choir and also made my debut as a solo singer. Since 2016 I am the lead singer of the Great Company Show Band.

In 2016, I graduated as an actor in the studio of the Szív Kamara Theatre in the class of the film director Árpád Sopsits, and since then I have been acting in plays for various companies, as well as participating in film shoots and dubbing. Currently, I am a member of the Színházikó Company and Proscenion Drama Stage, performing in children’s plays and contemporary dramas, and as a guest artist of the Szindra Company I perform in musicals.

Acting also made it possible to meet Szidónia, with whom we acted in several plays together and over the years our professional relationship developed into a friendship. I am very happy to join the professional team of Magánének.hu, I am convinced that while singing I can help you with the right voice training and to immerse yourself into the songs using my acting experience and that this is how simple singing can be transformed into performing art.

My interest in music and acting began as a child, and apart from sleeping, there were hardly any hours for me without music.

The piano is my instrument, which has helped me a lot in my singing and teaching career. I have worked as a singer and songwriter in various bands. I qualified as an actor at the Gór-Nagy Mária Drama School, and later studied in London, and at the same time I studied classical singing at the Erkel School of Music with the instructions of Orsolya Ambrus and received voice lessons from Szidónia Kovács-Tatár.

I graduated from Triagon Akademie as a Media Composer. As an actor, I mainly played roles in prose theatre and short films. I have also had the privilege of participating in musicals such as We Will Rock You (PS Produkció) and Kőszívű Ember Fiai (MagyaRock Dalszínház, Komárom). I am active in various theatres and plays, including the Babits Mihány Theatre and the Újszínház.

And in response to Szidónia’s request, I was delighted to join the professional team of Magánének.hu

Nóra Siadik

Music has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 8 I was plucking guitar strings and later playing the piano. Soon after that I began to consider singing seriously, first in acting classes and later in other singing studios, where I had the opportunity to learn the proper voice training and vocal technique from several teachers, such as Szidónia Kovács-Tatár, Dávid Nádor, Ildikó Kedl. As an active stage performer, I am currently the lead singer of Intermezzo (jazz), the Marcipán Trió (children’s songs) and the vocalist of the Ray Charles Band.

As part of singing training, in addition to proper voice training, I also emphasize movement and preparation for stage presence. It’s important to me to have lessons in a relaxed and funny atmosphere.

I believe that with the method of Magánének.hu you are closer to achieving your goals than you think.

The words of my students

„I really liked attending Szidi’s lessons, because she pushes you to the maximum, she is empathetic and motivates you all the time. She has helped me a lot. It was good to be her student.”
Laura Fenyőfalvi
„I like studying with Szidi because she always pushes me out of my comfort zone somehow and always tries to push me to the maximum. Her enthusiasm and personality are a plus that make her worth studying with! Not only a fantastic teacher, but also a wonderful friend!”
Boglárka Szántó
„I liked learning at Szidi because the singing lessons with her were very funny. I wasn't afraid of making a mistake or doing something wrong, because she corrected me and told me it was okay. She was always patient with me and I only had to sing songs that she knew were not too difficult for me, so as not to strain my vocal cords. She encouraged me and was always kind to me.”
Blanka Kis
„Szidi was very helpful and encouraging, funny, cool and always able to find a way to help. I was surprised, because this is not how I imagined a singing lesson would go; however difficult it was for me, she tried to help me and never turned me away. And that's why I liked it, because I had a really cool teacher for myself. (And thanks again for the ride and the tea! )”
Beni Tóth
„Szidi is always cheerful, helpful and always looking for a solution. On our difficult days, she could always be counted on as a friend. She taught me a lot, both in the area of music and in life.”
Eszter Siki
„OMG! I am so happy that I have found a wonderful and excellent singing teacher in you, Szidónia. Thanks to your undeniable talent, my voice came back to me and I can't express how much grateful, happy and lucky I feel to have found you for me as a super great vocal coach. You are a singing angel with super power. Million times thanks, you gave My Voice back.”
Magdiel Pita – Cubanero Zenekar
„Singing with Szidi gives me a complete escape from the turmoil of life. My spirit soars, especially when I see that Szidi is just as happy as me seeing even my smallest development. An endlessly kind, encouraging personality, who lovingly guides you on the path of self-fulfilment in singing. ”
Amina Rácz
„For me, singing was problematic in many ways, both vocally and mentally, and I almost gave it up completely. But there was a glimmer of hope. And then came Szid, who was professionally very skilled and humanly managed to empathise with me on the journey to open me up to singing in all aspects. I've improved a lot, and since then I've been singing bravely and confidently on stage.”
Attila Mészáros
„To this day I can still remember the image of Szidi passing on her knowledge with the same enthusiasm, love, good humour and cheerfulness in every lesson. I wish everyone could have such a teacher, who, in addition to always dealing with her students with a lot of patience and willingness, makes effort to make them feel comfortable and confident in what they are doing.”
Borbála Illés
"I started going to Szidi because she teaches techniques that help me avoid obstacles when I want to move from one style to another, but I got much more than that. I can feel myself pushing my boundaries, and not just in terms of my vocal range. I love that she is so open and flexible as a teacher, as a person, in every aspect. It's the first time in a long time that I've really felt the progress in a class."
Adam Ardens Dora
„Szid is a versatile artist. She sings when she needs to (beautifully!), teaches songs to the company when she needs to, and professionally scales the cast before performances. And the most important thing for me is that she can be a great singer-actor, a great colleague and a true FRIEND! ”
JUDIT SZILÁGYI – PROSCENION DRAMA STAGE
„I really enjoy the classes, it's always refreshing for me. I'm usually quite shy, but Szidi is so direct, kind and understanding that I knew from the first lesson that I wouldn't have too much trouble with this. She made me love singing even more and I would recommend her to anyone who is interested in singing.”
Dorottya Puskás
„Szidi is very kind and generous. She always helps you if her student has a problem. I loved spending time with you. During that 4 years I have grown a lot as a person and as a singer. She is not only a teacher, but also a soul mate.”
Dorina Kastner
„The singing lessons are held in a very good atmosphere. Szidi and I quickly found common ground and the work we did together paid off. She is a great teacher and a pleasure to work with. She is a great person, both professionally and as a person.”
Kristóf Nyiri
„I liked my singing lessons with Szidus because she creates an atmosphere where inhibitions are not the main thing. She resolves them. Thus, with practice, inhibitions are dissolved and the throat takes over the main role. I did not feel a teacher-student relationship, but a friendly, safe environment, where the one who learns and the one who teaches are on the same level. This makes things much easier. It also resolves that "it is embarrassing" feeling. The lesson was never an uncomfortable one, we laughed, we told stories, and we shared experiences through practice.”
Nóra Skoperda
„Every lesson was fun! I loved that it was relaxed and we laughed a lot together!”
Eszter Huszár
„I owe a great deal to Szidonia in mastering correct voice training, articulation and breathing, which I was able to use not only in my singing lessons, but which have been and still are an asset in many areas of life. What I liked about her lessons was that we found the right exercise for each problem.”
Dávid Csongrádi
„Szidi's lessons are enjoyable, interesting and at a high quality. If you are having a bad day or are less interested, she can always motivate you in a positive way.”
Viktória Mária Nagy
„Besides the singing lessons, Szidi also puts a lot of emphasis on movement, so that I can learn to let go and stand my ground on stage. The lessons are always fun.”
Nóra Siadik
„Szidi puts a lot of time into making sure her students have fun while they learn. I always had fun, sometimes I didn't even realise I was studying. But she is also very, very patient and understanding.”
Réka Szász
„I loved going to Szidi's singing lessons because she was always smiling, she was helpful, she never said anything negative and my voice improved a lot despite that. I always had a great time in her singing lessons.”
Petra Schmaus-Kőrösi
„I really like how Szidi explains everything in a unique way and shows the techniques in a way that is the easiest to understand. I love the fact that I don't have to be shy in front of her, I can let my voice out, and she taught me what it's like to sing with confidence.”
Vivien Török
„My singing idols from my childhood, when I listen to them live now, are characterised by two things: either they went to voice training where they lost the vocal character that made me love them, or they didn't go to voice training and lost their voice completely. Szidónia Kovács-Tatár masterfully applies a method that provides a solution to the two problems described above. Therefore I can wholeheartedly recommend her!”
Laja – Fekete Skorpió
„Singing at Szidi's is like being at a meeting with friends and being in a class at the same time. The atmosphere is great, which I think is a catalyst for learning.”
JUCI LOVAS
„The lessons were well structured and adapted to the needs of the student. They were always enjoyable for me and the lessons flew by and I always learned something new.”
Levente Szarvasy
„Szidi quickly finds common ground with everyone, which is why it's so easy to work with her and learn from her! She has a good grasp of her students' abilities at the moment, and can develop things that nobody could expect! Whatever goal someone sets for themselves, she is supportive, patient and will do her best to help you achieve it!”
Zsolt Kovács
„The reason why I like to go to Szidónia for voice training is that apart from the fact that she has experience in almost every style of music and can teach it professionally, the lessons are personalized and flexible in a friendly atmosphere. I mainly study musical and rock styles.”
Krisztián Terenyi
„I really liked Szidi's methods. The lessons were always in a good atmosphere and this helped me enjoy myself more in my singing! She was very sweet and helpful with me.”
Anna Czmorek
„I always really liked studying with Szidi because she gave me very useful pieces of advice. Every lesson was good fun and I never went home without a sense of achievement. I could have any question, I always got the best answer. I had an efficient, enjoyable and quality education from Szidi! ”
Vivien Zsoldos
„I loved singing with Szidi because she gives personalised lessons. We were always moving at my pace and singing the songs I wanted to sing, but I was also improving along the way.”
NOEMI TORMA
„Szidi is enthusiasm itself. Her energies take me with her, I immediately get involved and within moments I believe her: yes, I can do this too. She has a keen eye, a keen ear, pays attention like hell, and her routine immediately shows where there is some room for improvement - and she can communicate this in a way that is clear and, more importantly, practical. Her expertise and disarming kindness are just icing on the cake.”
ESZTER GÁL-BODNÁR
„I remember the atmosphere was very good and Szidi helped me with everything. Even if something didn't work the first time, she calmly and kindly told me to try again. That obviously calmed me down and I felt better straight away. ”
