Your vocal coach: Joëtta 

Despite having a degree in Psychology and in International Development Studies from the University of Amsterdam, I followed my heart and decided to pursue music as a career. I studied at several music schools and started writing and performing music. 

In March 2017, I joined fellow singer-songwriters Tiana and Fanni in the folk band Wiens Lief. We released a single titled Better than me in July of the same year, played many shows and participated in the Amsterdamse Popprijs competition. As a solo artist, I released my debut EP 'Narrative' in 2021. 

 

I'm passionate about my work as a coach because I find it incredibly rewarding to help students reach their goals. My experience as a teacher isn't limited to music; I also teach yoga and have taught language classes to kids, teens and adults. 

I find it important that you feel safe and comfortable in class so that you can freely practise music and enjoy making music.

I have studied at:

  • Estill Voice Technique levels I and II with Anne-Marie Speed (Royal Welsch School of Music and Drama, Cardiff)

  • Rockschool, London (certificate in Popular Music Performance Grade 8 Popular Vocals)

  • DJAM, Amsterdam

  • CAMM, Málaga (Spain)

  • Berklee (online)

I hope we get to meet soon!
