About Me

I often wondered how singers sang. So I took the journey, and learned. I attended California Polytechnic University, Pomona and got started on the road to learning how to sing. I continued the journey at Arizona State University in their Masters of Music graduate program. At that point I had some skills and landed a job with Sesame Street Live as the Character of Professor Art, travelling the country singing and dancing with the Muppets. Then I landed in Las Vegas where I performed for people from around the world as a Gondolier. I have also had the pleasure of performing in foreign languages in the Operas "La Boheme" and "La Traviata". Learning to sing is not an over-night thing. It takes time. But if you want to start the process, let me share my experience and knowledge with you. Thanks.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you study with me, you study in an open accepting environment. I know that this is a process and that everyone has their own way to learn. Together we will decide what is best for you. And after sometime with me, you will be able to stand up in front of friends, family and even strangers and belt out a song.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baby Grand Piano

*** Specialties ***
I use the bell canto style of singing. But am versed in any style. I believe that using a technique that avoids tension in the body and vocal instrument, a person can sing forever.

About Me

All of my past experiences lead into my real passion: Teaching. Whether it's conducting throughout Europe or singing as featured soloist with the Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra and Oregon Symphony, I use past experience to teach students about musical and healthy singing techniques. I am currently a Doctoral candidate at UNLV. I am excited to incorporate new instructional techniques into my teaching that I learned from conventions and coursework.

Most of all, I believe that singing should be a fun expression of yourself. It should be an outlet for creation no matter the skill or age level of the singer.

I hold a Master of Education degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where I specialized in Secondary Vocal Music. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music (Vocal Performance and Choral Conducting) from Oregon State University. I am an active choral director and singer in the Las Vegas Valley and sing opera semi-professionally.

*** Lesson Details ***
Breathing is the key to singing and speaking. After a few months in my studio, a student will know how to sing healthfully and on the breath. If a student wants to focus on more popular styles like rock, pop, or country, I can instruct you on the best ways to maintain vocal health and increase the power, range and agility of your voice. If a student wants to sing in one of the major Classical languages (Italian, German, or French) I have extensive training in the pronunciation of each.

I have taught singer/songwriters how to convey their creative images. I have also taught adult singers how to contribute more of their own sound to their community or church choirs. All doors are open for a healthful singer!

*** Studio Equipment ***
extra room with piano, recording equipment, seating

*** Travel Equipment ***
All a student would need is a piano or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Classical and operatic voice, popular genres including Rock, Pop, and Broadway.

Julia G. Henderson, NV

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, English, Language, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

I began my study of music as a child with the study of piano. I also played and performed clarinet in the school band and marching band (highlight of my youth!), played and performed duet piano works, and also the organ. I was initiated by my native Swiss grandparents into dance and yodel music, which then interested me in ethnic music, in conjunction with my classical music studies. In addition to my music studies, I played intercollegiate sports and studied zoology. The schools I studied at were Western Illinois University, Northern Illinois University, Buffalo State College, and then onto University of New Mexico to begin a Master’s Program.

Upon moving to Manhattan, I studied with a well-known voice coach in the opera world, Tom LaMonaco. I also studied voice with Nancy Ribakov and piano with Sy Ribakov from the Juilliard School of Music. I studied piano with Monique le Duc from the Paris Conservatoire, Mary Gunning from the New Mexico Symphony. In conjunction, studied voice with Ms. Jean Kraft from the Metropolitan Opera (7 years), and Regina Rickless (1 year) from the European stage.

Notably, Julia was chosen to perform a piano concert for the Spanish Ambassador to the US in Albuquerque, NM. (1999).

I performed a solo voice program in Natal, Brazil which included, Lieder, Italian arias and American songs, and received the honor of teaching a master class to the opera students at Federal American University, Natal, Brazil.

I have performed numerous several opera roles and produced and performed for artist’s series in the US.

I have served at the University of New Mexico as a faculty pianist – (2001-5) in the Ballet Department at UNM for several years. In conjunction with performing, teaching and continuing my education, Julia prepared the children’ Chorus for Opera Southwest and was the director of the Edgewood Opera Group, which introduced the community to the opera stage. Many of my students were in the SWO opera productions and are presently at major universities throughout the US.

I have accompanied and prepared many students for many levels of recitals and competitions, auditions, college university music entrance exams, opera, and Broadway productions while also producing and performing myself.

I continue to perform, teach, and record Lieder and Chanson in Arvada, CO. and hosts shin dings regularly at my home with my brilliant scientist husband, Joda.

Dear Future Students,
I look forward to meeting you very much and exploring your music life with you.
Each music mind is different from the next, so bring your own uniqueness to the music and I assure you, you will find fulfillment and the evolution of your musical self.
I will give you 110% and I would like you to do the same. That means, you will need to practice! I practice every day and remember, there are many ways to practice. We can talk about this and I will give you many ideas.
There is no judgement in my studio. Learning music and continuing to improve is a process. Each person is different and contributes to their own becoming. Please don't worry about being like someone else. This is your turn. Your first lesson will BE A LESSON, and we will discuss the specific materials needed for you to study music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a very nice studio in my home, with high ceilings, which offer very natural acoustics. I use my home for my professional recordings. I have a 5'9" Boston, which is made my Steinway. I love my piano and chose it for its rich dark sound.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will travel to you depending on the project. 

*** Specialties ***
I teach using a variety of the educational piano books, i.e. Alfred
but I like to also use materials that fit the personality of the student. This means I will spend thoughtful time picking out these materials for the student. I also use a memorization technique for piano students for part of their work program. I enjoy the Alfred Theory books. With regard to voice, I have in the past required my voice students to at least read the treble clef so that they may play their vocal line however, this is an option. I use college materials for explaining the vocal apparatus, but my training from master teachers has evolved into a technique that brings the voice to stabilized sound whilst protecting the vocal chords. I use the 24 Italian arias for beginners.

About Me

I have enjoyed the stage and the thrill of entertaining since I was a child. I have been in numerous productions, including Las Vegas Academy’s “Sweeney Todd” starring as Mrs. Lovett, which was selected as a highlighted show at the National Thespian Conference, “Cats” as Pouncival, “Little Women” as Marmee, National Thespian’s “Hairspray” as Prudy, Super Summer Theatre’s “Annie” as Pepper, and many more! I have also been studying voice with the famed Jeffrey Skouson for the past decade and continue to study teaching with him as well. I have received theater training from many different sources including workshops with professional broadway performers. As I grew up, my love of performing transformed into a new love for teaching people to sing and act so that they too can experience the same joy I feel when I'm on the stage. Because of this love I studied music education at Brigham Young University ID and became a certified Vocal Instructor in the Institute for Vocal Advancement (previously a certified Speech Level Singing Instructor) in an extensive program where I must complete education and testing each year. I focus on building a singer’s range and strength in healthy ways in all genres of music. I work with all types of performers from recording studios to the stage.
During your first lesson, I will assess your voice to determine your tendencies and weak spots. In each lesson we will begin with a series of exercises that will turn your weaknesses into strengths. We will then apply these techniques to songs of your choice. During each lesson, we can work on performance, styling and any areas you may need instruction in. If you would like to sing from the bottom to the top of your voice with strength and ease, I am the teacher for you!
