Julie-Anne is a great singing teacher.
I have done some singing on and off over the years but for several reasons I had completely lost my confidence in my voice and was close to giving up on singing. However, attending Julie-Anne’s ‘Sing to Perform’ course helped me see that I still had the ability to sing and more importantly how much I love it. She creates a safe place where it does not matter if things go wrong with a performance and gives you the confidence to try out different genres. I am now enjoying trying out different songs at home that previously I did not think I could sing.
I am looking forward to attending her next singing workshop or performance course and would encourage anyone who loves to sing to get involved.

Julie-Anne is a wonderful instructor for my beginning singer 12yo daughter with no previous singing training. The child wants to sing in musicals and we find that Julie-Anne is a must-have to prepare for auditions and musicals. She is very positive with kids and as a result my child now sings all the time. With her help we also placed in an intermediate-level local choir. She is teaching good warm up technique and voice protection as well. Thank you Julie-Anne!

Julie-Anne immediately made me feel comfortable with my voice and had me singing unself-consiously in no time. Her professionalism and technical knowledgeable are blended with warmth and humour. I highly recommend her to singers of all levels, including people who think they 'can't sing'. She's a wonderful teacher!

Incredibly passionate, very empathetic, and great listener. She truly can demonstrate that literally anyone can sing, and turn a dull song into a virtuoso.

Julie-Anne is an inspiring and skilled teacher. She creates a space where you feel confident to sing even when you're a beginner, as I am. She manages all levels of ability and confidence and by the time you leave the lesson you feel positive and relaxed. Singing is great fun when she's teaching you!
