Julie will select the majority of the repertoire for her students. She takes into account age, type, level of appropriateness, technical ability, and developmental tract to make the decision. While high school musicals can sometimes push students towards repertoire they wouldn’t normally perform for their age, Julie makes sure that the music done with her input reinforces the student’s developmental trajectory. It is important to note that Julie firmly believes that classical technique/approach is the basis for healthy singing. So, even if the student is only interested in singing musical theater, songs of a more classical nature are used as part of her studio curriculum.
