About Yulia
Born in Russia, I studied at Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory (Master of Arts/Voice) and am a graduate of Bern Opera Studio in Bern, Switzerland (Master of arts/Opera). For 3 years I worked in a children music school as a voice teacher and have taught privately.

"Yulia is a special and unique artist, able to hold her own on any stage in the world”  (Daniel Rigazzi, Stage Director at Metropolitan Opera in NYC).
 
 My debut as a professional opera singer was with the State Theater Bern, Switzerland in 2010.
I have also performed with Theater Biel (Switzerland), Ash Lawn Opera Festival, Opera Ischia (Italy), Dicapo Opera Theater NYC, Great Moscow Hall, Vocal Productions NYC and Opera
Camerata, Smetana Hall in Praue, Carnegie Hall in NYC and many others.
In 2014, I made my debut at the Carnegie Hall with Steven Crawford, pianist and
assistant conductor of Metropolitan Opera.

In January 2018, I performed at Smetana Hall in Prague, Czech Republic with conductor Alfredo Sorichetti and New World Symphony Orchestra. In April 2018, I performed soprano solo in Brahm’s German Requiem with Easton Choral Society in Easton.
In June 2018, I successfully performed World Premier of the Oratorio for the Fallen by E. Dubois in Saint-Clair in France. And in July 2018, I performed at the Rossini Festival “Case Sonore” in Monteleone, Italy with renown Rossini bass Bruno Pratico and pianist Carlo Pari.
Recently, in December 2018, I sang Soprano Solo in Christmas Oratorio by Saint-Saëns with Easton Choral Arts Society in Easton, MD, and had my debut at Teatro Annibal Caro in Civitanova Alta, Italy with maestro Alfredo Sorichetti and Orchestra Sinfonica Puccini.
Some of my future performances include US-premiere of the mono-opera by Hubarenko “The Love Letters” at Carnegie Hall in New York (July 2019) with maestro Yuriy Yanko, “Ah, perfido” by Beethoven at Vienna Konzerthous and Classical Music Concert at Vienna Musikverein in Austria (May 2019), Elekta's role in Strauss' opera Elektra at the Salzburg Great Hall of Mozarteum in Austria (May 2020) with conductor Ernest Hoetzl and Thueringen Philharmonic Orchestra, and many other various operatic and concert series performances in USA, Italy, Austria, Russia and France.

Yulia is an amazing teacher and great singer. She is very passionate about teaching and my sessions with her are fun and very educational. She is quick to pinpoint issues and rectifying them using different techniques to attain correct voice. For a complete novice in singing, I have learned a lot in a very short period, thank you Yulia. I highly recommend her.

I worked with Yulia to improve my vocal technique and coach my Russian repertoire. Yulia knows about technique and music more then many known teachers! She helped me a lot and I would definitely recommend her as a vocal instructor if you are just starting to sing or if you are an advanced singer.

About Taro
こんにちは

My name is Taro, and I am from Kobe. I have been teaching Japanese since 2015 to students of all ages.

Learning a new language could be difficult. The initial reason I came to the US was to learn English. I eventually finished Tulane University and American University for my BA and MA, but I struggled with English in the beginning.

I had got comfortable with my English after some time, and since I have been interested in learning languages, I also learned Spanish. Through the process, I have learned effective ways to learn a new language, which I will be sharing with you.

One of the most important things while learning a new language is to develop a solid foundation of the basics. Once you have developed the basics, the rest will come with less effort. So I like giving structures to my students using different core ma
terials so they can get the basics right.

In addition, I use Google Sheet in which you can see all the lessons and homework in one document. This simplifies the learning process which enables you to keep track of the materials you are covering.

Students have different reasons for studying Japanese, so I give customization based on the need of each student outside the core materials.

I am glad that you are interested in learning Japanese. Japan has a beautiful culture, and I look forward to helping you get to the level you desire so you can have a renewed appreciation for what Japan offers.

Prior to the beginning of my lessons with Taro, I had little to no knowledge of Japanese, so I took weekly lessons for Japanese lessons for a little over half a year, and I am proud to say that I feel confident in my understanding of the basics in Japanese grammar and knowledge. He was excellent in adapting to my learning goals and ensuring that I received what I expected from every lesson. I was able to retain much of what we went over because the lessons effectively covered material that I can relate to my personal life. Taro is definitely my favorite teacher since he goes the extra mile and genuinely cares about his students as well as their goals. If you're thinking of beginning lessons and aren't sure where to start, Taro is the perfect teacher for guiding you to identify and reach your learning goals, whether you're a beginner or have moderate experience with Japanese!

I have been taking Japanese lessons with Taro Sensei for about 5 months. He is a very patient and organized instructor. He designs the teaching material based on my specific level and goals. I enjoy the fun conversation with him during every lesson. My Japanese skill has improved gradually as time goes by. Thank you Taro Sensei.

About Thomas
I am born and have grown up Deaf. I regularly communicate in American Sign Language (ASL).

During my time at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), I weekly met a few students and helped them with their ASL courses. I signed words and sentences to these students when they asked me questions.

After I have graduated from RIT, I have worked at two federal agencies for three years. At one of these federal agencies, I have participated in ASL courses by one-on-one signing words and sentences to tutees and by having these tutees copy these words and sentences in ASL.

I can provide ASL lessons in the alphabet, common signs, visual description, classifiers, sentence structure, facial expression, body language, specialized signs, and ethical or professional relationships with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing people. In addition these le
ssons, I can explain how signs and sentence structure form.
