Eliette’s Music Academy

At Eliette’s Music Academy it is extremely important to us that each student has a strong understanding of how their instrument works. It is important that we all have fun and enjoy music as a life long companion and are able to self express and self discover in the process.

All of our tutors are experts in their field with a wealth of knowledge to pass on to their students.

There is a lot of fun that is had at EMA and we welcome you to join in, in the magic of music making

About Eliette Roslin:

Being immersed in music from a young age Eliette grew to love and appreciate the creative world.

She has been playing piano and singing since she was 5 and started writing music when she was 13. By the time she was 17 she had placed in the top 50 of the Play It Strange Song Writing competition where her song Believe was produced and published. It has since been played on NZ radio and her songs just keep piling up.

When she was 18 she moved out of home and across the world where she spent a year in Amsterdam exploring as well as interning for Karin Bloemen, a dutch singer / comedian. The time spent abroad was a massive learning curve for the young songstress and an incredible experience.

She then moved to Sydney to study at AIM where she was surrounded by talented classmates and tutors. Mentored by the likes of Nina Harris, Trish Delaney-Brown, Sean Coffin, Steve Henderson & Jamie Rigg.

On stage Eliette finds singing a story telling art form, where she can let go, express and enjoy herself. With a positive view on life, Eliette is a warm and welcoming person who is open minded and adapts to any situation.

By the time she was 14 she began teaching the very method she learned from, Simply Music, being not only one of the youngest teachers for the company but also the first teacher for New Zealand.

In 2014 she graduated from AIM with her Bachelor of Music Majoring in Vocals and in 2015 furthered her studies with Music Rhapsody.

With great patience and care she teaches children and adults from all ages.

Teaching Info

Simply Music is the largest playing-based music education institution in the world. It presents a piano learning method that looks at music in a totally new light, and pioneers a new direction in music education. Its revolutionary approach profoundly differs from the more common, traditional “reading-based” methods making it fun and enjoyable to all ages.

Music Rhapsody was developed by internationally renowned
music educator, Lynn Kleiner and is a fresh approach to early childhood music education. Through the use of unique instruments, puppets, and a no-hurry approach, young children are engaged every step of the way. Young students are fully prepared for Simply Music piano lessons and learning other instruments through their participation in this amazing program.
The Simply Music Rhapsody journey begins at birth and continues for a lifetime.

It is our goal to inspire, challenge, create and build confidence in a nurturing and supportive environment where young girls can understand their voice and how to take control of their place in this world.

Any girl age 5 and up can join us as we sing, dance, perform and make friends in weekly classes. We cater to all abilities and confidence levels.

Everyone can sing with the right support and education and we’re here to help.
