- Teaching since:
I work with students of all levels who are ready to commit themselves to seriously working on their vocal technique.
I specialize in contemporary genres as opposed to classical, with an emphasis on developing a strong mixed voice. I teach healthy belting techniques and work on contemporary repertoire.
I am now teaching exclusively online to students from around the country! My students have recorded and toured nationally , made it to Hollywood auditions on American Idol, won national pageants and talent competitions , won awards and conquered auditions.
I have been performing professionally for over 40 years. I was a former cast member of Americas longest running musical review , " Beach Blanket Babylon" , and was the lead vocalist for one of the top corporate show bands in San Diego for over 10 years. I have headlined clubs and events in San Francisco, San Diego, Houston and LA. Most recently , I have run my own vocal studios in San Diego and Portland.
I am a member of IVTOM( International Voice Teacher's Of Mix) and have been mentored by some of the top vocal instructors in the country. I constantly take classes and workshops to keep up with the most current vocal pedagogy for contemporary singing.

Judy expanded my vocal range immensely. Her teaching style is very warm, friendly and supportive, and instills the confidence to sing in front of audiences. I would recommend her anytime.
Judy is hands down the best vocal coach I have ever had.
Her background as a performer and her knowledge of the technical side of singing come together for the best possible training one could have for singing at any level.
Within my first 3 lessons I was singing notes I thought I could never reach, safely and with correct technique. I have worked on songs with Judy I thought I could never sing with what I thought was “my” limited range….but no more! Judy has all the tools to increase your range, quality of sound and bring the songs you work on to a performance level.
She has solutions for those areas in your voice that skip or break and great exercises to strengthen those middle
tones in your voice as well.
She uses Skype and Facetime for lessons so it is super convenient and private as well. I am just really glad I found her!
Judy is the most supportive, professional and engaging vocal coach anyone could hope for. She tailors each lesson to the individual singer's need and ability and her dedication and patience brings out the best in her students. Judy has been my vocal coach for the past two years and I have experienced first hand how her incredible knowledge of tools and techniques increases vocal skill and confidence. Highly recommended for beginners as well as advanced vocal students!+ Read More
