Eliza Rozeboom - B.Arts, Dip.Op.Art, Grad.Dip.Perf, A.Mus.A
Eliza was born in Sydney, Australia and studied ballet, piano and clarinet in her formative years. After completing high school she attended Sydney University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Italian, Music and Performance Studies.
Her passion for music and singing in particular led her to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music where she successfully completed a Diploma in Operatic Art and a Graduate Diploma in Performance. Whilst studying for her Masters Degree, Eliza accepted an offer to work with Opera Australia where she was a full time member from 1996-2000. She left the company to study in Slovakia with the world renowned voice teacher Eva Blahova, who has trained international stars such as Magdalena Kozena and Renata Pokupic, and these studies led her to a professional engagement with the Mozart Ensemble in Luzern, Switzerland.
Other professional engagements include a recording of new Australian music for S.B.S. and the main theme for the Australian feature film ‘You Can’t Push the River’ under the direction of internationally recognized composer and conductor Carl Vine. Eliza has also appeared on the Sunday Arts Program for channel nine and performed for many famous Australian artists including Arthur Boyd and John Olsen.
Apart from her regular performances in Switzerland and Australia, Eliza has also worked as a voice teacher, piano teacher, and language coach and has helped many young singers and pianists to fulfill their artistic potential.
The deteriorating health of her father led Eliza back to Australia where she founded the Epping Music Studio. The studio specializes in private music lessons and provides musicians of all levels with professional tuition in a relaxed and friendly environment. Eliza and her team employ unique teaching methods which enable students to access their innate musicality. In the vocal department, special attention is given to voice production, breathing, language and presentation, and to the notion that singing and music making is ultimately about communication and enjoyment for the performer and audience alike. Eliza strongly believes that everyone has a voice and can therefore achieve great pleasure and satisfaction from expressing themselves with an instrument that is uniquely theirs.
