Merav was a great teacher. She helped me focus on my tone and style of the songs I chose. She was very patient and kind. I looked forward to each class.
Matthew
Merav is a wonderful instructor. She is very patient and informative and never makes me feel like I am being judged for my mistakes or for asking questions. She also works very well with different styles of music and explaining how those sounds are made. And above all she is a bright soul and makes lessons comfortable and enjoyable.

Merav has wonderful, positive energy and my daughter loved her first lesson. We can’t wait for next week!

Robin is a wonderful instructor. She is patient and knowledgeable. She really cares about her students and helps them to achieve their goals. I highly recommend her!
George
Robin is a very compassionate, patient teacher who truly cares about your success as a student. She's a highly skilled musician with a wonderful ear and she knew how to give specific, understandable guidance to help me learn the very complex art of singing. I came to her as a 61 year-old beginner with no singing experience. Robin always made me feel comfortable and was always supportive and understanding through all of my struggling and stumbling. With her kind support and expert training, I was able to take my singing way beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Robin, no matter what your age or skill level. She's a teacher with heart.

Was my first ever vocal coach and I was not let down. Amazing teacher. Very personable and also has an amazing taste in music!!! Highly recommend

Speaking in front of others and speech/diction is another one of my favorites to teach. Having been on camera in many national television shows and in stage productions as an actress, I am experienced in projection, breath support and articulation. It's all about becoming a person who commands attention by having the right skills to engage your audience whether in person, on tv, radio or in film. I have scene studies and speech exercises to start you in the right direction. We will record your voice and I will give you home work that will be challenging but fun to do. I have seen so much improvement in my students who study with me, especially those who speak with a monotone voice. In such a short while these students were lifting their vocal pitches up and speaking with much more life in their voices. They were interesting to listen to and they have written very favorable reviews about me. Check out what they say, OK?

Harper B.
My 8 year old daughter just had her first singing lesson with Julia. I was concerned because though my daughter has great enthusiasm for singing, she has much to learn regarding pitch and musicality. Julia was remarkable with her! She was so positive, patient, and effective at helping my daughter learn to hear pitch. We're definitely sticking with Julia!

How to Handle Rejection as an Actor

One of my college acting professors told us, “if you can’t handle rejection, find another major. Actors are rejected more than they’re cast. You will have to deal with rejection every day; and if you let it get to you, you won’t last long”. Those words stuck with me all these years: not only for their brutal honesty, but also because I wish I had asked her: how do we deal with all this rejection? Fortunately, there are many A-list stars who can tell you stories of how they experie …
