In demand for her inspiring and knowledgable teaching, Josefien Stoppelenburg has given vocal masterclasses at Indiana University-Jacobs School of Music, University of Colorado, Illinois State University, Louisville University School of Music (Kentucky)Cincinnati Bach Ensemble and the Arizona Bach Festival. ​ ​She taught at the International School Choral Music Society (www.iscms.net) in Seoul/ Korea, Beijing/ China, in Shanghai/ China and gave masterclasses about Baroque Vocal Performance in the Dominican Republic.
Josefien has performed most major oratorio works of the baroque, classical and romantic repertoire, and premiered a great deal of contemporary works. In 2013 she won the Chicago Oratorio Award.
 
Stoppelenburg is very much in demand as a private vocal coach in the Chicago area and online. Her students represent all musical styles. In the lessons there is a great focus on vocal health, authenticity, and interpretation. For students focusing on classical music, historical background and repertoire knowledge is being addressed.

"While I expected Josefien to to be a great performer, I had no idea that she was such a fine teacher. She displayed the hallmarks of a great mentor: She was patient and exciting and supportive and inventive throughout several days of intense teaching. Every student drew out a different knowledge base within her, and Josefien was incredible at diagnosing issues accurately, and then finding just the right approaches to address them. Each vocalist improved according to where they were in their personal development. I watched a shy student blossom and the most advanced student rise to a completely new level. She never attacked, but also never relented in her search for a result that would result in transformation of the student with whom she was working. Yet all the while there was some magic at work in the room. Students were engaged, joyful, comfortable and challenged.
I expect to collaborate many more times with Josefien Stoppelenburg. She's the kind of artist that is all to rare. A great musician and a well-balanced human being."
