As the only individual in my family who found a passion for performing at a young age, I always found it difficult to seek the help & guidance I needed to put me in the right direction to fulfil a career in the music industry.
Having taken Performing Arts from GCSE to degree level at a specialised Music University, I found our teacher to be average & our group Vocal Lessons a bit of a chore. After 4 years of training in school, college & university I felt like I hadn’t been challenged or developed. My confidence was low as was the joy I’d previously had for singing.
After hearing amazing things about lessons at Vocal Ovation, I first met Julie at a National singing competition in 2013. Although I was very wary of Vocal Lessons from past experience, I enquired anyway. From the second Julie replied I booked my first lesson & haven’t stopped booking since!
Whilst extremely professional, Julie’s naturally warm approach makes you feel so comfortable & at ease. I always feel she has my best interest at heart & despite being incredibly busy goes out of her way to make time for everyone.
As Julie puts a lot investment into her own training, I have total confidence that she gives me the best technique & advice possible to keep my voice not only in good shape but also consistently improving & developing. The comparison in my voice now from 3 years ago before taking lessons at Vocal Ovation is insane! I have felt & noticed huge improvements in my stamina, dynamics, control, range, strength & power but in addition she has helped me massively with my confidence, stage presence & image & has helped me regain my love for singing more than ever.
Throughout my time at Vocal Ovation, Julie has helped me prepare for some mega performances from national competitions & auditions, to festivals, charity events & radio interviews & at some major venues across the UK, Europe & America. I’ve appeared at the O2 Academy on several occasions but the biggest one of all was performing at the Metro Radio Arena, supporting Olly Murs, Nathan Sykes, Sigala to name just a few. I was fortunate enough to have Julie by my side before hitting the stage to make sure I was ready to give the performance of a lifetime!
I can’t thank her enough for the support, help & guidance she has given me over these past few years. It’s an absolute pleasure to work with such an amazing Vocal Coach & I can’t recommend her highly enough to anybody who ‘loves’ to sing, or just ‘wants’ to sing.
In my opinion, Julie couldn’t be any better at her job & makes the impossible, possible! You will not be disappointed!
