I have lived on the stages of the world for over 30 years. From the chamber music halls to every stage of Lincoln Center to the stage of the State Department in Washington DC making a live documentary lecture concert. The stage is like a family room in my house regardless of the numbers of the audience, cameras, microphones or lighting. The stage really is the one in our minds. We walk onto a stage every time we speak with something on the line. When we meet new people in our lives or reunite with the ones we have not see in a long time. When we need to say something difficult or admit something to ourselves.

I help you to explore the psychology and the philosophy as well as the down to earth, technical methods of being on the stage and performing at your very best. The stage can inhibit but it can also energize as it channels all the previous energy that exists there.

Different stages are vortexes of energy. Connecting to it is one of the elements often not felt or ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Dancig my way into this world since age three, I searched and searched until finally met with the technique that involved me and transported me completely, Bharatanatyam. I graduated form the world famous Kalakshetra Foundation in 2019, and now I am teaching as part of the necesary training.
Even though I come from the Kalakshetra tradition, my view on dance goes quite beyond, having learnt several other techniques such as Javanese Classical Dance, Western contemporary etc.
However, the base will be firm. We'll cover all basic adavus, theory and items. The pace and sylabus will be adjusted according to your experience and needs. I am pasionate, but patient. Above all, dedicated. My goal is to pass that on.

About Sofia

Patience and flexibility, combined with a broad understanding of the way different bodies might work plus the proper knowledge of technique and theory that characterizes Kalakshetra alumni. I value the responsibility that a teacher undertakes when they face their student, and out of respect and adm

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!

When I began directing I found that my favorite part was taking the time to coach the actors and finding what techniques worked best for them to get them to where they needed to be in their performances. Often my rehearsals are a series of exercises and coaching techniques to help the actors grow into their performances, which lead me to want to teach acting more regularly.

So far I've only had 3 lessons with her but I booked a few more so I can continue to grow as a dancer. I am so glad to chose her. I am so thankful her to make me fell better."

"Fawn was fantastic. She'd go the extra mile in sending me breathing exercise videos outside of our 1 hour lesson (so as to not impede with our lesson time, she took the time out of her day) for me practice. She's great at making me feel comfortable doing what i'd call "silly" or "embarrassing" exercises that actually make a huge difference and are beneficial. She's the best."

New to the dance ministry as a whole she introduced flags to me and I have since been invited to minister at several different events and Engagements paid and unpaid and for that I am truly grateful. Not to mention time I call with questions and she gives me unbiased answers to help me grow along the way. Definitely a jewel in my eyes. I call her my dance mom honestly😁"
