Ellis Pecen was born in Belgium and began studying the guitar at the age of thirteen. She moved to London in 2008, to study at the Royal College of Music with Gary Ryan, completing her Bachelor of Music in 2012.

During her time at the RCM, she performed in masterclasses with musicians such as Craig Ogden, Chris Stell, Mark Eden, Carlos Bonell and Mark Ashford. After graduating in 2012, Ellis completed an MSc in Performance Science. Her Masters research explored the impact of cognitive behavioural therapy on musicians.

Ellis is currently conducting doctoral research under the supervision of Professor Dave Collins at the University of Central Lancashire. Her PhD research focuses on how performance enhancement practices from sport psychology could be translated successfully into the field of music performance.

Ellis also presents talks on topics related to performance science & psychology, and talent development. She continues to train and practice as a performance coach, working via Eclectic Performance (www.EclecticPerformance.com). She has a particular interest in interdisciplinary work across performance domains such as music, but also in sports, academic, business, stand-up comedy, rhetoric, and presentation performance. In addition, she focuses on the interaction between wellbeing and life satisfaction, considering both performer wellbeing and goal attainment.

Ellis's guitar repertoire consists of traditional and contemporary classical works, and is often influenced by folk music.
