Often when we try to sing with ease and clarity, things can get in the way such as shallow breathing, tightness of the abdomen, and jaw tension. In order for us to create the most clear, resonant frequencies, we must be aware of all the factors that go into effect. In the Julie Brown Voice Studio (incorporating the Acapelladiva℠ method) we create conscious posture and conscious breath control resulting in optimal overtones. The clarity of your voice gives goosebumps to your audience. Only with the correct placement of tone can we achieve resonance, and have true control over dynamics and phrasing. We achieve optimal resonant overtones in the Julie Brown Voice Studio rapidly with the Acapelladiva method. Take your singing to the next level.

Many times students come into my studio and they have thoughts of a limitation due to experiences in the past. One way I help people realize their potential is to think of the present and follow up in the future. Being in the present means breathing correctly, being calm, and eliminating negative self-talk. As singers we are vulnerable and exposed, as we are the instrument and we take personally how people react to our voice. We must be our best fan, not our worst critic! When you are your best fan you will reach your potential, especially when you incorporate the Acapelladiva℠ method of conscious thought, conscious breathing, and conscious action. Learn more about the Acapelladiva method to utilize the tools to help you reach your vocal potential. Sing your best and speak your best! Love, Julie

The tendency that baritones who first enter my studio have is to sing powerfully with force and effort. However, this is a detriment if we put too much weight in our sound in the higher range. There is a balance, just like when riding a horse. Your voice is the horse. There are subtle ways to direct it, so that it will jump and move with agility. Same with your voice. Use the reins (or your breath) to make the horse (or your voice) move effortlessly. Pulling too hard will cause a horse to choke on the bit just as restricted breathing causes your voice to crack. Unsupported singing can cause damage to your voice. Weight in the voice causes tension and restricts breathing. Think less like a tough gladiator when attempting fast, high notes. Be a laid back David rather than a hulking Goliath. Don't Goliath your falsetto! Lastly, try not to over-analyze, or question your ability to implement technique. When we do that we become our worst critics, and self-sabotage our effort. It's a fine balance. Julie Brown voice studio implements the one of a kind methodology where singing with ease comes from proper technique. It's a holistic approach to successful singing.
