Taking her class is my favorite hour and a half! She brings a joyful passionate energy into the classroom that makes flamenco fun and so much more than simply learning the steps but adding style and confidence to the movements. She is able to modify to either challenge you or simplify the steps so they are able to be practiced.

Luciana is an AMAZING instructor. She brings so much fun and energy into the classroom. She’s passionate, knowledgeable and very professional. And at the same time, she’s very patient with her students. Can’t wait for my next class with her!!!

Luciana is the BEST teacher! She is energetic, fun, and really cares about her students. I was self-conscious about learning a new style of dance, but she made me feel comfortable right away. I cannot wait to dance with her again! :)

Learn good breath control and resonance to strengthen your speaking voice using vocal warm-ups, posture and speaking exercises.
We will look at your speaking voice in terms of pitch, timbre, volume, pacing, register and prosody. Using a talk that you are practicing, readings or improvising real life situations, you will have lots of practice.
I recommend adults take from 45 minutes to 1 hour lessons weekly for skill building. The price of lessons DECREASES by 10% after each 5 lesson purchased for the first 15 lessons.

My daughter has learned so much with Julia in the past few weeks. It's been a true pleasure to witness the progress. They have worked on sight reading, tone, physical posture, and many other aspects of singing and sound production. Julia is a very caring and supportive instructor. She is full of enthusiasm and humor, and this shows in her choice of singing materials. We look forward to having more lessons with her!

Online one lesson in so far, but Julia seems to be a very talented and patient instructor for children.
