Julie Brown Voice Studio: Where Singers are Created
My goal in teaching others how to sing and become singers is to help them develop their ideal singing voice through the mastery of techniques (the Acapelladiva Method) that I have not only learned and crafted over my career, but have practiced and taught to hundreds of students.
Teaching the Acapelladiva Method in the Julie Brown Voice Studio involves a relaxed, cozy, inviting Zen Fen Shui environment conducive to optimal learning for the singer. As part of giving the “DIVA” treatment, I have a fully equipped Roland Piano to help accompaniment, as well as provide Karaoke, microphones, voice amplification, fresh flowers, candles, and lush memory foam carpeting to help create an ambiance that is conducive to the make a singer feel calm and relaxed. This allows them to stay focused on singing, and helps them more rapidly learn the techniques associated with appropriate breathing and posture. Of course, my Persian kitty Leonardo di Cappuccino occasionally walks in to listen to the singers and offer his infallible critiques and advice.
Being able to have the confidence of delivering a beautiful piece of music vocally is a feeling second to none. Many people reach a level of singing proficiency without coaching or lessons. But to reach the full potential of your voice, you will need a coach, mentor, and instructor. Yes, I just do not teach others the gift that was given to me – I create singers!
To that end, I am like no other instructor out there. Why? Because I make you experience what it is like to sing like you feel you should; discovering the full range, depth and dimension of your voice. In essence, you will not only be able to sing with confidence, you will be a singer!
I sing opera professionally and have performed in New York, Italy, Boston, and Monterrey to name a few. I have also taught voice on the University level (I have a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance (SMU Meadows School of Arts Conservatory)) and have coached and instructed professional musicians in all genres: pop, swing, soul, blues, jazz, country western, rock, bluegrass and of course opera.
There is no experience quite like seeing an audience stunned after a glorious vocal performance. I strive to have my students experience that too! I want them to discover that divine Diva (or Deity, guys!) of voice. I have returned to my hometown of Austin (the Live Music Capital of the World) to teach, coach, mentor and perform.
