*** Lesson Details ***
What happens in a Lesson? In order to train your physical voice, it is necessary to do vocal exercises, in the same way that one needs to train at a gym. There is no "magic key" to unlock one's voice; it is a matter of daily practice and muscle strengthening/stretching. So, the first part of the lesson will be focused on vocal exercises specifically tailored to YOUR VOICE and its needs. The second half of the lesson is the fun part- SINGING! We will work on any songs and styles that YOU choose. Whether you want to sing Rock, Country, Pop, Musical Theater, or Classical, there is a healthy and communicative way to sing!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard. The student should provide a recording device, iPhone, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical and Broadway style singing, but have extensive experience in Contemporary Commercial Music as well. I teach a healthy approach to all styles, and modify technical approaches towards the genre that the student is most interested in.

· Opera Voice · Excellent Instructor

I've been taking lessons with Jule for about 2 months now, and both myself and others are already seeing a very positive improvement in my singing voice. Julie is helping me to deconstruct the bad habits that I've developed prior to formal instruction, and build strength in the muscles that should be doing the vocal work. She is also helping with musical artistry in general, to the point where my singing lessons have had a positive impact on my work on other instruments.

Julie is a consummate artist, teacher and musical mentor. And by the way, wow- what a voice she has!

· Singing · Exemplary of how best to teach

Julie-Anne has been incredibly helpful to me. Her patience, knowledge, professionalism, communication style, and kindness have made it really easy for me to listen, practice, sing and feel confident that my success was imminent. From the first couple of lessons I began improving, a credit to her overall. As an over 50 student, getting back into the entertainment game after 25 years of absence, I was really nervous about taking the reins as a lead singer again. Julie dispelled by doubts, and worked with me to bring the best I have to the surface. She's great, and that is the truth. It doesn't matter your age, gender or goals, I am positive she will be able to help you. Thanks, Julie!

· Broadway Singing · I learned I am in the right place.

I have studied on Broadway in New York acting and singing for many years. After just a few lessons I can say that Julie Anne is a very very good teacher. Pay attention to her and you will learn. It will take time. Remember the best way to BROADWAY is practice practice practice.

· Singing · Voice Lessons

My daughter has been taking voice lessons for about 2 years now and has been pleased with every aspect of her interaction with Julie-Anne.

Since first starting as a shy and nervous student, she developed into a performer who participated in several musicals and found musical theater to be her true passion!

Thank you for all your support!
