Jazz Singers Academy

If you want to learn to sing jazz or take your current skills to the next level and beyond, Jazz Singers Academy is for you. Plenty of challenge in those goals. Why make it harder by struggling on your own? You can have all the tips, tricks and exercises of a renowned expert at hand. 24/7/365.

The online course ‘Jazz Singers Academy’ features Ilse Huizinga’s step-by-step guides on everything vocal jazz. And step-by-step training programs to boost all skills.

Clear step-by-step vocal jazz instructions are hard to find

Look around and you’ll find vocal jazz instructions are often either vague or complex. Vague because it’s hard to explain a ‘feel’ in a concrete way. Complex because music institutes teach the instrumentalist’s approach. Meaning you have to (also) play an instrument on a decent level for it to work.

Jazz Singers Academy is neither vague nor complex. It is tailor made for jazz singers. Ilse Huizinga developed the step-by-step programs together with her husband Erik van der Luijt – a well known Dutch jazz pianist.

Having clear step-by-step instructions not only means you’ll get all the necessary knowledge and insight. You’ll also know how to apply it in the most practical sense. And that makes all the difference.

“I love this course. Ilse is a thoroughly engaging teacher who leaves out the fluff and gets right to the heart of the subject. If you are new to jazz, you will learn a lot. If you are a singer with some experience, you will still come away with lots of info and ideas to expand your skills. She gives great resources and ideas for you to practice on your own. Very well done–highly recommended!”
