As a lifelong student of this music, I come from a tradition of generosity and mentorship that I strive to continue in my teaching practice. I aim to create a welcoming space for my students to learn and tailor the lessons to the individual’s needs and interests. I often provide supplemental materials and tracks to help my students' progress at home.

Hi! My name is Judette Elliston, I’m a vocalist, composer, and teacher based in Brooklyn, New York. I hold a BFA in Jazz and Contemporary Music (’20) from the New School with honors. I have 10 years of performance experience, 13 years of training, and 5 years of teaching experience. My training has been focused on vocal technique/freedom, piano, composition, improvisation (jazz, circle singing), and Haitian folk music.
Over the past 5 years, I’ve taught voice and piano in a variety of settings (music camps, private studio, and tutoring sessions) for children, teenagers, and adults. I love to see my students not only improve their musicianship but find their unique musical voice over time. To find out more about me you can visit my website judetteelliston.com.
