My teaching style is attuned, fun, encouraging and tailored entirely to meet each student's specific need. I’m enthusiastic, caring and a dedicated person.
My greatest joy is helping others find genuine fulfillment and self expression through music. I will teach individuals of all skill levels and all age groups.
There is unique voice inside you, waiting to be heard: the voice of your true identity and being. As your voice is redeemed, a spontaneous aliveness returns, awakening your heart as your journey toward your true self. By learning to listen to your voice, learning to understand, honor, accept and express its message, you begin to discover an inner freedom and to carry it into the world.

About Juliana
My name is Juliana, I m an international singer and musical theatre actress, Hollywood Music and Media Awards winner. For decades I performed in stage productions, as well as TV and International Gala such as "Millennium Promise" (producer Quincy Jones), NBC productions, big Symphony orchestras in Europe, and I had a privilege to collaborate with renown musicians from USA and Latin America.
I've been teaching private lessons since 2011 helping my students open up their talent in full potential, growing voice awareness, self-esteem and emotional response through voice, as well as stage performance mastery.

By enjoying vocal performance field, I learned vocal art as a science and a combination of physical, psychological, and creative ability of the artist. Singing has the power to bring a lot of positive effects to people’s lives thro
ugh opening their personality and engaging their well-being. This is why teaching is not just a profession to me- it’s also a mission to pass all the knowledge and experience I have to young enthusiasts and graduates.
I enjoy good and productive relationships with students of all ages and I have a friendly and supportive manner. I qualified to teach Vocal and to do so in a way that every student feels special, valued, and encouraged.
I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Juliana - outstanding professional singer and teacher, who has given my daughter and I unforgettable experience of vocal training. Her way of teaching has helped us discover are passion for singing and improving our vocals.
After just a few lessons with Juliana, my daughter was selected for one of the leading role in a musical theater company play.
Juliana is definitely our favorite teacher of all. Her beautiful personality and amazing talent helped us to understand better way to perform on stage.
I’m also an artistic director of theater- studio “Fan-fan” and Juliana has helped our actors to prepare their musical scenes. She is huge part of our success.

Thank you Juliana!!!

I work with Juliana for over 6 months and noticed such a difference in my singing! She was able to explain all the issues with my voice and helped to change them! She also helped my band with original songs, she gave us ideas about vocals and back vocals. Everything seems so easy with her! Now I feel 100% more confident! I am so happy to find Juliana! She is the best teacher I ever had!

What an absolutely AMAZING experience! Juliana is not only a wonderful instructor, she is a true mentor whom my daughter adores. When we first signed up for lessons, it was to build my daughter's self-esteem, as she has several mandatory performances at school. What started out as a summer adventure has morphed into a regular slot for us on Juliana's calendar:)! My daughter thoroughly enjoys learning from Juliana who makes each session fun by mixing up songs, adding props, incorporating dance moves, etc. This is much more than a voice lesson -- this is a confidence-building journey. My daughter is developing life-long skills which will allow her to be successful "on stage" in life whether she continues singing or engages in public speaking. Thanks for caring about my daughter as an individual, Juliana!!

About Keanon
I love everything about teaching! I love music; it is my life. I sleep, breathe and dream music. I am a Columbia University Chicago graduate; I graduated with a degree in Music with a concentration in Classical Voice. I have performed in numerous operas and musicals, as well as, sung on Gospel Cruises all around the world. In my eyes, the student is the main focus so whatever issues, concerns or request the student may have I will treat them with priority. I am all about strengthening the natural born talent and making my students the best vocalist they can be. I'm here to serve the students and that is what I will do until they are confident in their gift...music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I take music very seriously but at the same time I like my lessons to be fun and a joyous experience. I am very patient and helpful with any strugg
les that may seem too hard to the student. I will start my students off with the basic vocal warm ups and then move on to material that they would like to cover and if so the student doesn't have material to cover, I will present them with material. Being a singer is not easy at all, so I will challenge my students by giving exercises that challenge them to sing for proficient. I will also bring in material that is brand new and ask the students questions about the piece. The student is in the lesson to learn everything about music, so any type of material that I feel will benefit them and help them move closer to their goal, I will definitely present to them. After 3 to 6 months students will be able to sing in the 3 minor keys and the major key. The student will also have knowledge and know how to sing at least 3 different modes. The singer will know how to read basic sheet music and perform it with solfege. The singer will also have 4 songs of my choice or their choice mastered and ready to perform in front of an audience. Lastly, the singer will have knowledge of proper breath control while performing, usage of a microphone, and intonation.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano/ Keyboard
Music Stand
Water

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical, gospel and R and B singing.

Keanon is a GREAT teacher/artist/musician/mentor

I've been working with Keanon for almost a year now. Aside from being an amazing vocalist himself, he does everything he can to help students reach their full potential and find their voice. He makes lessons fun while constantly keeping you challenged. There's always encouragement from him to strive to be better, which can really bring the best out of singers. Whether you're simply singing for hobby, performing for shows/auditions, or ready to record, Keanon has something to offer to any aspiring musician. He has a passion and love for music and understands it's a gift that must be shared with the world.

Keanon did a great job with catering to each singer's style in the group workshop. He is highly knowledgeable about singing and gives great pointers to make your song sound better. I highly recommend a vocal session with him if you plan singing for an audition, a performance, or if you just want to sing for fun!

Melissa was my first voice teacher, and I was so fortunate to have her. She was very patient with me because I was very shy and self conscious when it came to vocal lessons. She help me find my voice, and started crafting it using many different tools to help me understand the different elements that allows one to register sound. She is a joy to learn from, and I recommend any beginner to learn from her.

My focus in lessons is on healthy vocal production with an emphasis on physiology. Because singing is very technical I want my students to feel comfortable in their understanding of their instrument. In this way, during performance situations they are able to let their musicality and acting shine without being hindered by vocal difficulty. Depending on the students need diction, music theory, and sight singing will be addressed.

Voice Lessons; For voice lessons, I usually like to start off with warm-ups with the piano, and then move onto ear training skills, from listening and singing to sight reading. We then move onto the performance books that the students would like to work on.

Each lesson includes studies of fundamental technique, ear training and repertoire development in order to facilitate the development of a whole musician.

About Natalie
Hello, and thank you for your interest!

My name is Natalie, I am a teaching-artist originally from Sydney, Australia. I currently reside, perform and teach in the New York and greater New York area.

I am an award-winning singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and composer who has toured internationally and an experienced educator. In 2016 I graduated from The New England Conservatory of Music with a Masters in Jazz Voice Performance. I received my Bachelor of Music from Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Australia.

“A teaching artist, by definition, is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator. As a working artist is they are involved in an ongoing process of discovery, problem solving, discipline and refinement of skills in their discipline. As a working educator, it is essential that the artist is al
so developing a knowledge base and skills to be an effective partner in education. Achieving a meaningful balance between these two professions, whereby one feeds the other, is an ongoing process that requires a deepening awareness for the teaching artist of what their teaching brings to their art and what their art teaches them about learning.”

I pride myself in creating a fun and safe learning environment in which I establish a firm musical foundation for my students. Lessons include: vocal scales and etudes, lyric interpretation, stagecraft skills, repertoire development and a foundation of the technical elements of the voice or instrument, and exploration and development of timbre, genres and music history. I teach a large variety of musical genres including jazz, pop, rock, rn'b, theater, reggae and classical music.

Simultaneously, my students cultivate many other skills while learning voice. Students enhance their understanding of music genres, their overall self-confidence and become self-sufficient and creative problem solvers. I am passionate about educating and empowering my students and I enjoy connecting with a wide array of musicians of all ages, playing levels and backgrounds.

Feel free to contact me to inquire about lessons, I hope to hear from you soon!
