Overview

Hello, my name is Julie B. I am a professional Singer/Actress/Entertainer with 20 years of hands on experience.
Most importantly, I am one of the last proteges of the late great world renown vocal coach, Judy Davis. I have developed an exciting curriculum based on my 4 yrs. with my beloved friend and mentor Judy Davis, (cut & paste into your browser "Judy Davis/Vocal Coach to the Stars" for more information) and now I want to share them with you. These lessons really work! I will teach you what she taught me and many legends of our time, such as Barbara Streisand, Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. These lessons are not your average singing lessons and I am not your average singing teacher. I paid a fortune for these lessons and now I want to share her work with you.

But wait, there's so much more! Being a great singer isn't just a great voice, it's being able to entertain! It's being able to deliver a song so that your audience never forgets you! It's stage presences, showmanship, musicianship, it takes personality, charm and pizzazz! I will teach you these things and much more. I will teach you vocal techniques, breath control, stage presents, and showmanship so that you truly entertain your audience. I will teach you how to write your own songs, speaking techniques and audition tips so you get the roles and jobs you seek. So, if you dream of being a professional singer or just sound like one, then this is a fun and exciting studio for you!

For you who aspire to sing professionally, there's so much more to learn besides how to sing.......The business aspect of the music industry is a real business and you'll need business "savvy."
I will teach you how to market yourself, how to network, put your promo pack together (demo, bio, head shots etc...) I'll teach you how to get paid gigs, studio work, and how to manage your career. I'm not only a teacher, I am a professional singer/actress and songwriter with many years of experience. I have played with top notch musicians, done hundreds of shows, venues, concerts, live theater and radio. So if you want to become a professional singer/entertainer then these are the lessons for you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a patient and easy going vocal teacher who enjoys teaching, supporting, inspiring and empowering my students. I have worked with students of all ages from 5 to 60 and believe it's never too soon or too late to learn. I love what I do and am very passionate about music. On your first lesson I will teach you a breathing technique that will improve your singing within the first week, you will also leave my studio knowing your vocal range, and 2 very important vocal exercises that will strengthen your vocal cords in a safe and healthy manner. There is an infinite variety of musical styles and repertoire for you to explore and I will guide your tour.

In the following lessons you will learn the importance of singing on pitch, phonics, phrasing, diction, timing, tempo,and rhythm. You'll learn techniques that will improve your vocal range so you can hit high notes with ease! You'll learn how to deliver a song, and connect with your audience so that never forget your name.

Learn how to read key signatures, transcribe music into your key and sub-plot your songs so you never forget them. You'll learn stage presence, showmanship, musicianship and how to work your microphone and set up your own equipment.

Stars the limit! If you dream of becoming a professional singer, rapper, entertainer or professional speaker, I will do everything in my power to teach you what you need to know to succeed. I can guarantee you that your vocal skills and stage presence will improve 100% within the first 3 months providing you do the work! In time you'll be ready to audition for shows like American Idol, musical theater, performing arts schools, choirs, speaking engagements or just sing for family and friends with confidence!

All's you have to do is believe... (and do the work!) :)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Bright, airy, well lit music studio with upright piano, music stand, microphones, top of the line PA equipment, comfortable chairs, couches, and environment. Student also have their own private bathroom.

Everything a student needs to succeed. Parents/guardians are always welcome to sit in on lessons.

Acting
Great Teacher!

Last year I started acting and singing lessons with Julie. She is wonderful. Very professional, and definitely knows what she's doing. She's very patient, and helped me with different vocal/acting exercises and gave me a lot of information I would need for acting and singing. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking lessons with her over the summer as I was unavailable to meet with her, but I am lucky enough to begin lessons with her again next week. I'm super excited to be seeing her again; Julie is an excellent teacher!

Talented Vocal Coach!

I've been taking lessons with Julie for a little more than 2 months now and I have seen major improvement in my voice. She teaches it in a way that helps me understand why we do the exercises that we do and answers any questions that I have. I was always kind of embarrassed to sing in front of people in the fear of not hitting some notes, but Julie is easy to be around and provides a comfortable environment for lessons. She is very patient and wants to see you reach your goals for whatever you wish to pursue with your voice.

awesome voice coach!

Julie really helped my daughter improve her vocal range by several notes in both directions and also assisted in preparing her for her performance. She is really flexible with the student's needs and personality and my daughter loves working with her. She goes beyond just being a teacher, she is very supportive and we love her for that too.

Great teacher. Easy breakdowns and understanding

Julie is a great teacher, with my first lesson I went home with an
Understanding on how my voice works, what my voice range is and exercises to work on at home to approve my vocals with each lesson. I have never done anything music related befor and she made me feel very comfortable learning. And using my voice.

Julie taught singing to my daughter

Julie was excellent in her explanation and encouragement with my daughter. Her knowledge of music surpasses other instructors we have worked with in the past. She also made it fun and obviously enjoys teaching. I think she is the best we have found and will resume lessons in the future

Sorry to leave!

Julie has been a great singing teacher for Brittney (my 13 year old granddaughter). She is patient and encouraging. Brittney has enjoyed her lessons very much; however, she needs to focus on piano and we cannot manage both piano and singing. Brittney is sorry to have to quit singing lessons; but looks forward to coming back in the future and we will certainly contact Julie B. -- I hope she is still available!!
