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 the Australian Institute of Music 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 Piano, being not only the youngest teachers for the company but also the first teacher for New Zealand.
In 2014 she graduated from the Australian Institute of Music with her Bachelor of Music Majoring in Vocals and in 2015 furthered her studies with Music Rhapsody Preschool Music Education.
With great patience and care she teaches children and adults from all ages.
