At a very young age, Janine already has a great passion for music and singing. The study solo singing (soprano) first and second phase, with Frans Kokkelmans, at the conservatory in Maastricht was successfully completed in 2001, with the diplomas Performing and Teaching Musician.
In order to further develop her skills in drama and dance (classical ballet, jazz, tap and street dance), she then studies 'Music Theater' for a year at the Brabant Conservatory in Tilburg, with musical singing with Edward Hoepelman. One of the highlights of this study period is the 1998 first prize in the television singing competition 'Una Voce Particolare'. (Tropical TV)
Janine has regularly attended acting workshops at Christiane Bruhn in Cologne. She successfully participates in the international Opera Masterclass 'Acting for Singers' of the Jekerstudio in Maastricht. This masterclass is especially aimed at young European opera talent. Currently Janine is coached by singing teacher Gemma Visser.
As a young opera singer, Janine is already a much sought-after soloist to grace church services, festivities and concerts in collaboration with choirs, wind and symphony orchestras in the Netherlands, but also in Belgium and Germany.
Over the years, in addition to her studies and the roles mentioned above, she can add to the series of concerts in these three countries: Concert tours to the Czech Republic, Italy, Australia, Switzerland and Russia. She can now be heard frequently as a soloist and opera singer in a large number of concerts and church services at home and abroad.
