Juliana on Teaching
As a teacher, I draw upon speech-level technique and singing principles from my time working closely with Tony Silva, associate to Maestro Seth Riggs and voice teacher to the stars, and Suzanne Kiechle, one of Hollywood’s most renowned voice teachers and vocal healers. This makes my studio truly unique in how I approach the many dynamic requirements facing Broadway singers and recording artists today.
My approach to the voice makes it possible to achieve both a classical legit and contemporary belt simultaneously, effortlessly, and tirelessly, while always maintaining vocal health.
In addition to helping singers reach their highest potential, I prioritize creating a nurturing environment and bringing a lighthearted approach to the work, maintaining that self-love, joy, and passion are crucial ingredients for success. I also seek to mentor students who are interested in expanding their knowledge of the business side of performing arts.
