Our ultimate goal as a singer is communication, and developing a healthy technique enables us to express freely! Whether you're singing on the stage professionally, or in front of friends and family, the goal is still the same- to sing your very best- and the tools we will build together will last a lifetime! Healthy Belt and Legit Singing will be addressed as well as many styles which are present in Musicals past and present.
About Julia R.

I help singers break through vocal limitations to expand their vocal range beauty & power. I believe within each of us, there is a little voice that knows innately what we are capable of achieving. It is our calling and duty to explore and develop our ultimate potential. Along with my career as an opera singer, I have been teaching voice lessons for over 15 years. I also have an active YouTube/Social Media Community where I discuss Vocal Technique. My clients have performed with companies such as Deutsche Oper, The Metropolitan Opera, Wiener Staatsoper, Houston Grand Opera, Salzburger Festspiele, Theater an der Wien, Finnish National Opera, Sarasota Opera, and Chautauqua Opera. They have been seen in National Tours of Musicals including Phantom of the Opera and have been signed to record labels and music management. In addition, they have received many honors including advancements at the Metropolitan Opera National Council Competition, final selections for NBC's The Voice, Miss America pageants, Classical Singer competitions, and Vocal Scholarships for conservatories and universities. As an opera singer, I have performed with companies such as National Moravian-Silesian Theater, Opera Orlando, Opera Naples, Annapolis Opera, Wichita Grand Opera, Gulfshore Opera, and Tri-Cities Opera. Major roles include Marietta (Die tote Stadt), Rosalinde (Die Fledermaus), Donna Elvira/Anna (Don Giovanni), Violetta (La Traviata), Fiordiligi (Cosí fan tutte), Susannah, and Suor Angelica. I have won a few competitions, including The Jenny Lind Competition, Connecticut Concert Opera Competition, and The Marcella Kochanska Sembrich Competition. Additionally, I was 2nd prize winner of the Kosciuszko Foundation Competition and the National Federation of Music Clubs Biennial Young Artist Awards, 3rd prize winner of the New Jersey State Opera Competition, as well as a grant recipient from CareerBridges Foundation. I currently live in Bratislava, Slovakia with my husband who is a Slovak opera conductor, and I miss my dog, Fifi, who is keeping my Mom company in Florida. *** 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 repertoire focused, i.e. SINGING! We will work on any songs and styles that YOU choose. Whether you want to sing Classical, Musical Theater, or Pop, there is a healthy and communicative way to sing! *** Equipment *** High Speed Internet connection. High Quality WebCam, IPad, Computer, Etc. The student may also provide a recording device, iPhone, etc. *** Specialties *** I specialize in Classical singing, but am able to teach healthy function in all genres. I teach a healthy approach to all styles, and modify technical approaches towards the genre that the singer performs in.

My 8 year old daughter just had her first singing lesson with Julia. I was concerned because though my daughter has great enthusiasm for singing, she has much to learn regarding pitch and musicality. Julia was remarkable with her! She was so positive, patient, and effective at helping my daughter learn to hear pitch. We're definitely sticking with Julia!
