About Juliet J.

Male Ages Taught: 12 to 99
Female Ages Taught: 12 to 99

Overview

I have been a teacher in private practice for 20 years. I have a wide range of experience with singers of all styles and age groups with a variety of goals and skills. I sang with a professional jazz octet for a number of years while maintaining my practice, have taught various master classes, musically directed various musicals, have sung background vocals and played piano on various recordings. I studied vocal and piano performance at Murray State University and studied privately through my adult singing and teaching career.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a big believer of direct application of core technique to repertoire/style. Generally, lessons are fun, comfortable and laughter is encouraged. I like singers to be working on a wide variety of music from the beginning. It's a great way to understand and explore your voice and how great technique is fundamental to successful development. I find this approach beneficial if you're a beginning student or if you sing professionally. Not to mention, singing songs is fun!!!! I encourage all students to give input on repertoire. Songs are chosen with goals in mind, including working specific parts of the range, preparing for an audition or performance, stamina, strength, and overall vocal development. In 3-6 months you will have a very good understanding of how your voice works and how to apply good technique to a variety of styles of music. My goals for piano students of all ages include a broad understanding of music theory and the ability to sit down and play music! I believe good sight reading skills are paramount for piano enjoyment and functional playing skills. We will sight read at each lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with piano, mic, recoding equipment, and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a full size keyboard for travel.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I'm comfortable with all styles of singing and have coached extensively in most styles, from classical to hip hop to rock. I work with singers with various goals. Some are professional singers, some study for a future career, and some study for personal enrichment. I am very good at teaching solid healthy technique/voice use, with direct application to repertoire, maintaining the singer's authenticity, style, and vocal health.

Excellent teacher

To make the long story short, I took various music lessons as a kid, and.. basically, all my teachers gave up on me after a little while... maybe I was so hopeless in music.

I started taking piano lessons with Juliet last summer since I had always been dreaming about piano playing. I have to admit I am a little anxious to many of the lessons, because I have a very busy full time job so sometimes I barely find any time to practice. But Juliet has been so patient, helpful and encouraging. I can tell there had been a dramatic progress during the past year. Although I am still a very beginner, I wouldn't be able to learn many of the skills without Juliet's help.

I am very grateful to have Juliet as my piano teacher.

Singing
Great teacher, and very helpful.

Juliet is an awesome teacher, I am taking singing lessons and have only had a few, but already notice a huge difference. The sessions are very relaxed and comfortable. Which was kind of important to me because I've never sang in front of anybody in my life and am shy.

I would recommend Juliet to anybody seeking professional instruction.

Juliet is the best vocal coach I have been to. Not only can does she help with music theory and sight reading, she find the BEST exercises to fit YOUR personality and voice. She gives great technique on reaching high and low notes without strain. Also great with vocal health advice. Seeing that she is able to mix personal style (of all genres) along with technique, new students should feel and hear a change right away. I am so grateful I have found her, and she is taking my vocals to the next level, and beyond :)
