Old-School Technique for a New World
I help singers break through vocal limitations to expand their vocal range beauty & power.
Along with my career as an opera singer, I have been teaching voice for over 15 years. My clients have performed with companies such as Deutsche Oper, The Metropolitan Opera, La scala, Wiener Staatsoper, Houston Grand Opera, Salzburger Festspiele, Theater an der Wien, Finnish National Opera, and Dutch National Opera. In addition, they have received many honors including advancements at the Metropolitan Opera Competition, final selections for NBC's The Voice, Miss America pageants, Classical Singer competitions, and Vocal Scholarships for conservatories and universities.
I believe within each of us, there is a little voice that knows innately what we are capable of achieving.
Whether you are a seasoned professional singing at major opera houses, or you're desiring to build a solid technique-- if that little voice inside of you *knows* you are capable of more, if you haven’t broken through that next level, or you’re at the top of your career and noticing things aren't working for you the way they always have, know that there is a way forward! It's just a matter of re-patterning muscles, processes, and thought patterns to unite in a way that serves you AND the music.
This crossroads is where I love to meet singers on their journey, by helping them gain autonomy over their vocal process and achieve vocal results they never dreamed were possible.
If this resonates with you, I invite you to schedule a free consultation today.
"She has completely changed my voice in range, tone, and overall quality."
Laura Deluca, Soprano
I feel that now I have an access in to opening out and connecting the bottom of my voice to the top ... I have immediately adjusted my embouchure and it has led to a whole new level of access. I am adjusting to the new aesthetic and am consistently surprised by the sounds that I can make with ease and confidence!

I am incredibly thankful to Julia. She has completely changed my voice in range, tone, and overall quality. She is dedicated to seeing her students grow and succeed. She is always willing to help her students not only with vocal capabilities but also with navigating the complex world of being a singer. Julia has been a saving grace for my voice, and has given me confidence that I didn't think was possible.
I am so glad I chose to be a part of the Fearless Singer. It gave me structure and discipline along with support. Julia is studied, practiced and informed, she shares it all in an extremely supportive environment. The Fearless Singer pushes you past your comfort zone on several levels, like a great trainer- you get results! I grew as an artist, I grew in confidence, I found a better practice ethic along with adding some new tools. I surprised myself.
I found answers to long time issues but more importantly- solutions!
Julie is helping me to deconstruct the bad habits that I've developed prior to formal instruction, and build strength in the muscles that should be doing the vocal work. She is also helping with musical artistry in general, to the point where my singing lessons have had a positive impact on my work on other instruments. Julia is a consummate artist, teacher and musical mentor. And by the way, wow- what a voice she has!
"I almost gave up trying to start a career as a singer, due to technical issues and the feeling I'm not good enough. I've now realized I'm still very much restricted in my tongue, which causes several technical challenges and that with the right teachers, who understand tongue ties (and had one themselves!) I can train in a way that specifically works for me. This means I've become motivated again to study and I'm much more hopeful a career in singing might be possible for me!"

This course is a must for any singer who feels they need to improve. I gained so much knowledge of how to improve my technique, my breathing and my mindset! An all-rounded course for all-rounded improvement. Thank you Julia!
This program takes singing to a whole other level! I have learned so much in just these 8 weeks and it has certainly shown in my voice and how I think of singing! I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants to get to the next level in their singing!
Lucca Bel Canto Institute
During these two weeks, we will be presenting daily vocal masterclasses to refine and calibrate your vocal technique with the principles of Bel Canto, with special attention regarding posture, appoggio, portamento, legato, messa di voce, registration and vowel balance. The aim is to refine the use of the singing voice naturally and economically, and to acquire the ability to harmonize a secure singing technique with one's own artistic expression. In addition, we will be tying all our technical work together and harmonizing our minds, hearts, and bodies, to deliver our purest artistic intentions.
If you’re mid-career and noticing that things are not working easily in your voice the way they always have.
If you’re making a fach change and are encountering new technical hurdles.
If you feel stuck vocally, and haven’t been able to break through that next level.
If things are working well enough vocally, but you just *know* you are capable of more.
NOW is the time to take ownership of your TECHNIQUE and refine the TOOLS to achieve your vocal goals -- creating exhilarating performances full of artistic integrity, delivering great auditions, feeling ease and confidence in your instrument at all times.
