I am a soprano who has performed in concert and opera productions across Europe, the USA and Asia. I am a dedicated teacher who always looks to find the best methods for each student's needs.

I give vocal masterclasses at American Universities (such as Indiana University, University of Colorado). I am passionate about teaching singing Classical music and Baroque, which is my speciality.

Every person and every voice is unique! In our first session,you sing for me and tell me what it is you had in mind with lessons. I love those breakthrough moments when students suddenly realize what amazing things they're capable of with their voice!

    Josefien brings her classical training to my voice lessons with enthusiasm and joy. Singing with her, Ive learned about my vocal range and how to get the most from my voice. Other groups I sing with have noticed the difference since Ive been working with her. She is a patient and sensitive teacher who has helped me immensely. P.S. Im someone who just loves to sing ~ but prior to the lessons with Josefien, I had not had any real vocal training. These sessions have opened up a whole new set of singing experiences for me, and Im grateful for her thoughtful guidance.

    Josefien is an amazing voice teacher. She brings so much enthusiasm and joy to each lesson, not to mention her incredible knowledge and experience. She helps me feel at ease and maintain awareness of the many things that must work in sync to produce an optimal sound. Lessons with her are always a really wonderful experience.

    Josefien, is a wonderful teacher. She doesn’t just do scales, but also has me doing exercises that strengthen my core muscles. I always feel great after a lesson. Everyone should take lessons from her!!

    Josefiens training and experience help to bring in a unique system for approaching a piece of work. Not only technically, but emotionally. She breaks down the most effective ways to make difficult segments of music feel natural through practice and discipline. Her knowledge of breath work is enlightening. She always challenges me and gets me to the next level every time I work with her.

    Josefien is a fabulous voice teacher! She gives me great exercises to practice which she lets me video so I can practice at home. She also gives me great imagery to produce the right sounds. She chooses good songs to help me practice each week and also welcomes my song requests. Josefien is so talented, kind, and patient. I highly recommend her as a voice teacher!
