Ellie has taught voice and singing lessons extensively in California and Europe as well as NYC and online with studios in Hollywood, San Francisco, San Diego, Amsterdam (NL), and NYC City. Her beginning students have been signed to major labels in the US, Europe, and Asia, played major festivals and venues in the US and throughout Western Europe and Asia (South By Southwest (SXSW) – US, Vienna Opera House, Melkweg – Amsterdam, Popkom – Berlin, Hong Kong Coliseum (solo show 2 night sold out) – major artist (not a beginner), etc).
Ellie accepts the tone deaf up through international professional singers in these genres:
- Jazz (100% admission rate to school of choice for university/conservatory auditions with one year of study)
- Musical Theatre
- Classical (90+% acceptance rate to music program of choice with one year of study)
- Most other styles except the heavy metal “demon voice” thing! There’s some chick in LA that does that (in person and through Skype lessons) though so Google away, kids!
Music Industry people come to Ellie cause she packs a lot into lessons. While Ellie is not expensive per se, many beginners don’t know what to expect to pay for vocal training. You can find cheaper lessons out there, but – as with a lot of things in life – you can often end up paying more in the long run due to slower progress. As the saying goes in Spanish “lo barato sale caro” (“the cheap is expensive”). There are a lot of quality people out there but it is sometimes hit or miss with voice training.
