“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.”

“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!”
