The Toolkit Testimonial

" I've had the joy of participating in Julie's Singer's Toolkit Course over the past few months. As Julie has worked us through the elements of the toolkit, so much about the craft of singing has come into focus for me in a way that I have struggled with for many years. Sharing this journey with a small group of other singers , seeing them develop their skills week by week , and having their validation of my own progress has been very precious to me"


Chakras for Singers Testimonial

Taking part in Chakras for Singers was intriguing, enjoyable, moving and ultimately transformational. Led by Julie creatively and sensitively, through and exploration of human attributes, emotions and energies, I was freed from self-consciousness to "sing from the heart"  and connected to others the group whose own singing transformations were also inspiring."
