Even though we had toured around the world as backing singers with Duffy and written, performed and recorded our own material, we hadn’t really had any vocal training!
We have worked with Julie for more than 7 years now, during that time the strength and versatility of our voices has consistently improved. Our confidence has grown, and we know that we can go into a recording session or on stage in from of thousands and own the performance.
Julie is so approachable and knowledgeable, we feel comfortable asking her absolutely anything about singing, technique and performance. She will always give constructive feedback so we know exactly how we can improve and tell us the methods of how to do so. She is also very passionate and encouraging.
We had previously tried out two other local singing teachers who seemed to have a very ‘old school’ approach to teaching which really didn’t suit us. You will find Julie’s professional approach and ability to identity strengths and weaknesses in a positive and constructive way really is a breath of fresh air.
Julie has helped us to prepare for our own studio sessions and gigs including Evolution Emerging with our band Talk Like Tigers, as well as session singing for Sony and being backing vocalist for the incredible “Elvana”
We now have improved confidence in our voices and technique, so we relax on stage and in the studio and REALLY enjoy it!
Julie’s beautiful studio is a great creative space where you can relax, soak up Julie’s knowledge and sing your heart out. There are amazing microphones you can use if you wish, a brilliant stage and atmospheric lighting. Julie really has thought of everything to create the best learning and performance environment!
We 100% recommend Julie and Vocal Ovation!
