About this pro

Unleash your inner potential and start singing passionately. Do you want to crush an upcoming performance or audition or just want to slay karaoke night? Let me help you reach your goals.

Connecting with your audience is one of the great joys of life. Let me show you how to leave your audience no choice but to smile and sing along.

I love singing. I love the art of it. I love the connection with the audience. I love sharing my passion.

Singing has been a major part of my life. I trained with many world class vocal coaches and sung on stage around the globe. I have been the lead singer for various bands in Boston, toured with one of the great European opera singers, was lead singer of the heavy metal band Jaded rocking out with +10,000 screaming fans and continue to be a Marilyn Monroe impersonator.

    I always wished and wanted karaoke to be fun. But it was always stressful. I admitted I was a terrible singer and called Julie for help. What a relief. Karaoke is now something I look forward too.

    The main thing Miss Julie helped me with is my confidence, I feel so happy when I have a lesson coming up.

  • Lilly

    She is an excellent and passionate teacher

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I always start by sharing my secret weapon for great singing - my lung expanding technique. It usually takes a while to sink in but it changes everything.

Then I listen to what the student wants to acheive. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I trained with a PH D in music which was so eye opening to the language of music in general.  I then studied with Dante Pavone who taught Steven Tyler how to scream.  He was amazing and I would refer to him as my Yoda.  I later studied with Rick Poulin and Jeanie Deva.  I mostly studied pop singing but some intensive opera before I went on tour with Debora Sasson.

I also have a degree in Psychology and am a Licensed therapist.  I specialize in overcoming stage fright .


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I am currently charging $80/hour.  Half an hour lesson is usually enough time especially for younger singers. $40 for 30 minute lesson.


How did you get started teaching?

I had numerous people approach me about it.  I was just naturally giving my friends and family pointers and confidence boosters and they would say, "Wow!  you are the best teacher".


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all types.  From already successful and giging to young children just starting out.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would say to get your fundamentals first.
