Jazz Singers Academy is hosted by Ilse Huizinga, a jazz singer from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She is listed in “The Jazz Singers, the ultimate guide” – by the authoritative American jazz author/reviewer Scott Yanow (Downbeat, Jazz Times, Jazziz, Cadence and Coda amongst many others) as one of the 500 best jazz singers. Worldwide. Of all times. Yes, that includes the greats like Ella Fitzgerald & Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra & Mel Tormé.

And this is what she sounds like.

      Quiet Now

Ilse spends most of her time traveling the globe performing and coaching. But you might want to benefit from her extensive knowledge and experience right now.
That’s why she developed Jazz Singers Academy. A complete online guide and training program for jazz singers. For you. Sure, it’s not one-on-one coaching. But in a private lesson – if you’d somehow get the opportunity – you’d get 1% of her tips, tricks and exercises. Tops. In Jazz Singers Academy you get it all. 100%.
