About Ellen

Working as a professional singer and musician, I'm able to share my extensive knowledge with those that have an interest in all areas of the Music and Entertainment Business and Voice related study.  After starting my first working band at a very early age, I was able to rise up through the ranks as a lead vocalist, session singer, jingle singer, songwriter, producer and stage show manager. Performing with many bands as a lead vocalist for pop and country bands, jazz and blues, and rock bands, I eventually broke out as a solo artist with much worldwide success under the stage name "Eliana."

 

After spending 10 years in Hollywood, California, I had a great desire to start a family so I retired from the traveling several years ago and have settled in Aurora, Colorado. I have two amazing young daughters who are great little singers! As a professional Voice Coach and Singing Instructor, I have worked with small children and older adults as well as celebrity recording artists and many dedicated singers in between. I'm committed and focused on providing the highest quality service for your singing lessons or music consultations.
