Hello, my name is Julie B. I am a professional Singer/Actress/Entertainer with many years of experience.
I have developed a very exciting program that I know you're going to love! These lessons are not your average singing lessons and I am not your average singing teacher. I have developed my curriculum based on my many years of experience as a professional singer, and most importantly, on my four years as a student/protege of the late great Judy Davis, world renowned vocal coach (cut & paste into your browser "Judy Davis/Vocal Coach to the Stars" for more information). Mrs Davis's singing techniques and methods were sought after by celebrities, singers, performers, actors, professional speakers and entertainers from all over the world. She taught such legendary singers as Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and people just like you and I. I paid a fortune for these lessons and now I want to share them with you. These lessons really work! I will teach you such techniques as breath control, placement, phrasing, annunciation, singing in pitch, dynamics and exercises that will increase your lung capacity, strengthen and stretch your vocal cords, in a healthy productive way, so that you can produce luscious high notes, velvety low notes and everything in between! 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. 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! Smile,
