Ilse Huizinga’s online jazz vocal course ‘Jazz Singers Academy’ has hundreds of happy users from over 30 countries. From the US to South Africa, from Romania to Russia and from Thailand to El Salvador.
It’s suited for all levels, voices and jazz related styles. Blues, Dixieland, Swing, Bebop, Bossa Nova and Modern Jazz.
About 5 hours of step-by-step guides with instruction videos, handy checklists and assignments. Plus another 5 hours of tailor-made exercise videos. For beginners it includes all basic music theory.
There are plenty of complex theoretical ‘vocal’ jazz instructions out there. Things they teach in music institutes. For every instrument including vocals. Meant to help you improvise. Which is only a small part of singing jazz by the way.
It can work. Even for a singer – who can’t ‘push buttons’ to produce notes. If you study and practice hard for years on a row. And have a feel for music theory. And play an instrument – preferably the piano or guitar – on a decent level.
You might stumble into the occasional online masterclass by a jazz singer. But in masterclasses things are demonstrated, without going into the fine details. Inspiring and impressive, sure. But hard to understand what they do, unless you’re already an experienced jazz singer. Hey, they are masterclasses after all.
Ilse’s online jazz vocal course Jazz Singers Academy provides the middle ground. Complex music theory and professional experience are transformed into easy to grasp insights. And easy to apply step-by-step instructions. Plus ‘you can’t go wrong’ sing-along exercises to develop or boost all vocal jazz skills.
Jazz Singers Academy focusses on the practical aspects of singing jazz. With a band. In front of an audience. Priceless experiences. Now you can get them as quick, easy and affordable as possible.

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!”
