“Wow, what an exceptionally well-crafted course. Perfect! The fog has lifted thanks to Ilse’s crystal clear step-by-step instructions. Easy to apply to any song.”

Patty Ann Economos


“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!”

Doc Stull

Would you like to be able to make variations on the melody? Or even improvise ‘scat’ solos? Here’s how.

Let’s make one thing very clear: the current ‘music institute method’ with loads of complex music theory was developed for instrumentalists. It only works for singers that play an instrument. Preferably the piano, preferably on a pretty high level. Like Sarah Vaughan, for example.

This simply means it doesn’t work for most singers. Singers can’t ‘push buttons’ to produce notes. They have to hear them first and then sing them within milliseconds. So I use the only method I know works – for all singers.

A step-by-step guide to improvising just by ear. Like Ella Fitzgerald, for example. No scales, no complex music theory. No limits. Unique.

However, the music theory behind it is provided as well – for those of you who do play instruments.

Includes assignments.
