Ellen Pieterse

All I ever want to do is what I am: a singer.



Ellen Pieterse is an all-round singer with an expressive stage presence. Coming from a classical education, she has developed into an allround performer with a great love for combining the beauty of classical music with the many musical possibilities of today.
Ellen has become a much-sought vocal teacher  and an important part of her students find their way to the conservatoire. She is a teacher for vocal techniques in light music at the department of Musical Theater at the ArtEZ conservatoire of Arnhem and a guest teacher at the ArtEZ conservatoire of Zwolle.
After her classical training at the conservatoire Ellen took courses in vocal technique for light singing  and classes in drama and film/tv-acting. Since 2011 she is coached by renowned vocal teachers Neil Semer (New York) and Roberta Cunningham (Berlin).
Ellen had leading roles in several professional music-theatre and opera productions including many performances for children. She works on a regular basis as a solo-singer in the Netherlands and abroad and is connected to soloist-ensembles like ‘Muziektheater ImpAkt’ and ‘Vocaal Theater Vox’.  She also is a core member of several professional choirs in the Netherlands with whom she produced a dozen choral music recordings.



A passion for teaching.

With over 15 years of experience in teaching vocal technique to enthusiastic (amateur) students, I cannot imagine a life without it.
For me teaching vocal technique is synonymous with nurturing people to grow into their full potential as artists and human beings. This ensures an engaging interaction during the voice lessons that I wouldn’t want to miss.

I teach teenagers, grownups, professional musicians, amateurs, professional singers, singer/songwriters, music students, and music students to be.
They are studying various disciplines like classical, music theatre, musical theatre, and/or pop music.

I am ever curious about the possibilities of our most personal instrument and therefore keep developing my skills as a performer and teacher.
