Drum, Music Performance, Music Recording
I am a full-time working drummer currently residing in Las Vegas. In addition to guiding up and coming drummers with their musical careers, I am working on music & soundtracks for film and television projects with platinum-selling singer/songwriter Mark Slaughter.
In April of last year I was inducted (for the 2nd time!) into the Las Vegas Rock Hall of Fame for my collaboration with "Ripside." I performed at the induction concert with fellow inductees Xcursion (Mark Slaughter, guitar/vocals; Kelly Garni, bass guitar). A picture of this performance is included in my "photos & video" section. Background:
I started playing snare drum at age 8. Two years later I got my first drum set and began studying with jazz great, Irv Kluger. I haven’t looked back since. I started playing music in the Wm E. Ferron Elementary School band. In my junior year in high school I co-founded Dream – my first “pro” gig. After high school, I joined the progressive-rock band "Ripside" and my journey into all things music began.
Singing, Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice
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.

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 mystudents 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.

Andrew earned an Associate of Arts in Performance (Guitar) Degree from Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, graduating in September 2008. He was one of 6 honors graduates in a class of 2000, learning every day from the best contemporary music teachers in the world. Nine months after graduation, he took a gig as a show/orchestra musician with Holland America Cruises. The same orchestra was also responsible for playing party/dance sets around the pool areas and in other lounges on the ships. After eight contracts with them over a 3.5 year period, he did one contract with Royal Caribbean, and one contract with Celebrity Cruises. These experiences took Andrew to over 70 countries on 5 continents, working with people of dozens of nationalities. On a daily basis, these gigs entailed receiving a stack of music charts in the afternoon, having a one-hour rehearsal with that night's entertainer, and then playing the show the same night, as if the band had been practicing it for years. Between this responsibility, and the diverse background of his co-workers, Andrew learned people skills and stress management skills that most musicians will never get the chance to learn. After arriving in Las Vegas in October 2013 he was asked to join "The Las Vegas Goodfellas" in early November. They are a group fronted by three male singers that has been a regular fixture in many casino showrooms on and off the Strip since 2007, and 3-time winners of "The Best in Las Vegas" award from the Las Vegas Review Journal Fan Poll. Andrew has also recently taken on two private students ranging from ages 13 to 25. Lessons will teach students the academic, artistic, and conceptual parts of music, as well as the subjects that can only be learned from working professionals, such as performance issues, the right and wrong ways to practice, modern equipment and technology advice, networking, and what it really takes to actually make music a career if the student so desires. Although students can learn a scale or how to strum a song if that is the goal, they can also go significantly beyond that if necessitated, requested, or desired.
