Our ultimate goal as a singer is communication, and developing a healthy technique enables us to express freely! Whether you're singing on the stage professionally, or in front of friends and family, the goal is still the same- to sing your very best- and the tools we will build together will last a lifetime! Learn the technical skills that will help you express onstage as an actor and singer!

About Julia

"I help singers, like you, realize their complete vocal potential through holistic training of the voice, body and mind. It's so easy for us singers to get caught up with how we're sounding, instead of understanding the building blocks of what we need to do to achieve our ideal sound. We wonder

I offer personalized private instruction in ballet, with each lesson tailored to your interest in technique, self-expressive style, and/or performance. I joyfully combine a well-trained eye for detail and a strong feel for the subtleties of mind-body connection with an ability to communicate them with sensitivity to individual physique, strengths, personality, and learning style. Relationship is at the foundation of instruction, creating a safe, supportive, respectful, encouraging atmosphere to grow as a dancer.

I took dance lessons from Gigi with a focus on self expression and working through issues that I was holding onto on any particular day. I am 60+ years old and never danced before. Where my typical perspective of myself standing in front of a mirror is not positive, I somehow was transformed into seeing beauty. Gigi is a beautiful person, very patient , non judging. Her goal was for me to meet my goal, even when it changed from week to week. Sometimes we worked on dance technique, other times using movement to work through feelings. I loved it.
Anna Mayta
Working with Gigi during a challenging time in my life was an amazing experience, her empathy, her nurturing quality made my experience truly lovely. She finds inspiration for movement therapeutic work by what the students needs are. After my classes with Gigi I feel spiritually rejuvenated.

Denise is a terrific teacher - after only three classes...very relaxed (!) and personable, too! We have done breathing exercises and articulation, which is very helpful. She is very attentive to breathing patterns and relaxation evidence... Actually, my goal is to do reading out loud well, so this course of work is very suited to me, and I think it's her design!

Great teacher I had a wonderful time I can't wait to take more lessons.

A good lesson devoted to learning to relax, use various reuniting parts of the body, loosening the lips and articulation...

Leslie is an incredible voice teacher. She is an upbeat , positive , fun teacher ! She has great educational information about vocal strategies and knows just how to get the right sounds out of me! She is also incredibly encouraging and a great communicator about how I can improve. She has made a huge difference in my singing!
Sergio
My little cousin received voice lessons from Leslie. We looked everywhere for a professional teacher who would work with our busy schedule. No luck, til we found Leslie. She was the perfect fit! She is extremely passionate with improving the gift of voice! In addition to her vast knowledge and professionalism, she is a joy to work with. My cousin absolutely enjoyed working with her; he’s shy and takes a while to loosen up to new people. I highly recommend Leslie for anyone who wishes to improve their gifts, and enjoy the learning experience she offers!

Her husband Jim also has an amazing recording studio where we have gotten to experiment with cartoon voice overs to build my reel."

"I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!"

He truly understands the actor's process, offering invaluable guidance and insight, and knows how to bring out an actor's most genuine, connected, and truthful work. His approach is broadened and strengthened by the fact that he deeply understands the anatomy of a script, and can break down the beats of a scene like no one else. I cannot recommend Zach highly enough."
