Hi, I'm Julia! I’m a professional vocalist, actor, and music instructor based in New York. Have you always dreamed of taking voice lessons? Are you an experienced artist looking to hone your craft? Perhaps you’re a parent who’s searching for fun and encouraging music lessons for your child? No matter where you are on your musical journey, I’d love to work with you!

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from the world-renowned Eastman School of Music, where I studied with Grammy award-winning mezzo-soprano Katherine Ciesinski. I approach teaching music with the fundamentals at the core of each lesson, however, I believe that the student should have the ability to express themselves through learning pieces of their choice, listening to a wide variety of artists and genres, and developing personal goals. I work with students of all ages, levels, and abilities. I am passionate about sharing the gifts of music and theatre with my students, and I love working with beginners! My lessons are always engaging, full of laughter, and cohesive. I love performing, teaching, and listening to music of all kinds, and I’m dedicated to helping you excel at whatever type of music you choose, from classical opera to Top 40 hits.

I am an experienced performer who has played many lead roles, including Cinderella in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella and Clara in Light in the Piazza. Because of my extensive performing experience, I am able to help with preparing for roles, upcoming auditions, or the next school talent show! I am also able to give advice on appropriate repertoire and how to deliver a convincing and meaningful performance with a genuine connection to the character. As a singer and vocal coach, I am well versed in musical theatre and classical repertoire, as well as popular music styles.

I am a multi-instrumentalist who has played the piano and the guitar for many years. I have experience teaching piano and guitar to children ages 4 and up and adults interested in solidifying the fundamentals! I especially e

Theater

As a graduate of the Eastman School and as a professional, I have taken many acting courses, been selected as a participant in Masterclasses with working professionals, and performed in numerous roles in operas, operettas, and musicals. My main goal when coaching a student who's interested in acting is having them connect to themselves and the character being portrayed with comfort, confidence, and honesty. I can provide helpful tips to eliminate performance anxiety and ways to deliver a consistent portrayal of the character.

As a graduate from a highly esteemed music conservatory, I have a lot of knowledge to share about the building blocks of music and ways to make learning the basics FUN!

Wonderful vocal coach!

Nina, 5 lessons with Julia

Great coach

A great coach knows how to identify both the weaknesses and strengths of the mentees and knows how to communicate effectively (listening and speaking “rocket science” in a simple english). That is what I see in Julia. She also has a fun, energetic, and friendly personalities which adds extra color to the sessions. Not to mention a beautiful and confident voice when she sings … remind me of Mariah Carey ;)

Individualized approach to student, boosting confidence while great teaching

Julia is teaching piano for my 9yo daughter. First and foremost, my daughter needed to be "seen" and "heard" , than, she can process any learning material. Julia created amazing connection with my daughter, improved her self-confidence, while progressed very well with material. We are so lucky to find Julia and hoping to continue lessons for long term!
