Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression. I pay attention to a complex stage presence of my students
I teach singers of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence.
My personal passion is classical music and jazz but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping your voice to sound as beautiful as it should be !

Wonderful, kind and very professional teacher! Highly recommend !!!
Julia is very professional and a great teacher!!! I am so grateful to her!!!
I met Julia in New York many years ago. I was looking to improve my classical vocal technique to be able to sing more challenging opera roles. The search took quite a bit of time because most coaches were teaching voice without actively performing, which was less than ideal for me.
One day I went to an opera and saw Julia singing. I was instantly captivated by her performance and decided to approach her after the show. I was pleased to find out that she provided private coachings.
First time we met for a session, I was a little dubious because I was a firm believer that men should study voice with men. Boy, was I wrong! What really matters when it comes to voice training is good ears, solid understanding of vocal technique and teacher's personality. After many years of singing, I came to the conclusion that those are the three main ingredients of success.
Julia was incredibly friendly, professional and - what's important - really fun to work with. I literally had a blast! Not only did she provide a solid voice training but also shared her wealth of knowledge about stage movement, charisma, character interpretations and so much more. Ever since I was looking forward to our lessons.
A few months into our training, I landed my first solo role in an opera. And then our coachings became even more vital to me. She led me every step of the way helping me refine the role and give my best performance.
I'm forever grateful to Julia for her help and a little sad she had to move to LA. Now I see her every now and again via Skype when I work on a new role or need to overcome certain vocal difficulties.
I cannot recommend her enough to anyone who wants to improve their vocal technique and finally nail that song you've always been dreaming of singing.
Best of luck. And have fun!
That is the first time i took vocal lessons! I was so impressed with Julia patience, professionalism and knowledge! She guide me in the right direction, tough me breathing technique which i never knew was so important. I though i will only get one lesson but after meeting Julia i took several lessons and now i think i can even perform in public! I am grateful to Julia and would recommend her to anyone from the beginners to even professional singers! FIVE STARS!+ Read More
