Teacher & Coach


Since 1999, Esther has been a much sought-after singing teacher. In addition to being a private coach for professionals from all disciplines, she has also been a singing teacher at the Maastricht Theater Academy, Codarts (Rotterdam Conservatory) and the New England Conservatory (Boston).


Esther also gave pronunciation lessons to students of the Mannes College of Music New York. In the Netherlands she was a pronunciation and dialect coach at the Nederlandse Reisopera.


Esther is now also frequently asked to give audition training to both professional performers and the younger generation.


Esther is a singing teacher after my own heart; perfectionist, intense, nice and direct, doesn't beat around the bush, clear, honest, looks for a thousand ways to make something clear, until the penny drops. Is intensely enthusiastic when the note is in the right place and praises me to heaven. Her enthusiasm motivates me to study every day and that is a miracle, believe me. We can laugh really hard and cry a minute later. So I am very happy with Esther and many with me.

"Esther is a great example to me. She makes her dreams work and she manages to make them come true! That perseverance inspires me enormously. She also knows how to forge a close unity between cast, musicians, creatives and crew. you can see strength in her performances. I am happy and grateful that I was able to be part of that at Putting it Together."
