Zangles Amsterdam Background Picture


Voice Studio Roel Bakkum was founded in 2011 and has since become a well-known studio for voice training in Amsterdam. Our mission: let everyone experience the strength of voice technique and the power of performance. The studio started in a small room but has grown to a studio where people are training their voice 7 days per week.

To make sure you receive the best possible training, our team is constantly developing their own knowledge and skills. Roel has trained in London as part of his Estill Qualification for the past 4 years. Besides his training, he has taught at conservatoires such as Mountview and Bird College. Aniek is currently in her third year of that same study. Anne is currently training to get her qualification as a speech-language therapist adding even more angles to our voice training.
