Julia teaches mainly voice and piano and has also been trained in Playground style teaching with Eclectic Music. She loves to watch students discover the joys of playing and understanding music! Because Julia has had the opportunity to sing all over the USA and internationally, she is able to pass along the training, guidance and wisdom she has received to her students. She teaches all styles of singing from a classical approach. When a student has a healthy foundation, it increases the longevity of the voice and allows students to do things with the voice they didn't even know could be done! She also believes singing is so much more than good technique and having a pretty voice, but also understanding the character and truly performing the pieces.
