Voice and Music

Amazing Music Lessons! - Ongoing - (posted by Sosonic)

Hello, my name is Juli Johnson, and I am currently accepting students for private voice, beginner guitar, and ukulele lessons.

I’ve been studying music and voice for ten years, and playing guitar and ukulele for almost as long.

The most important thing is to have fun and enjoy what you're learning. I will teach you how to use your instrument so you can get more out of it. You will learn songs you enjoy, and we will work toward your goals in learning your instrument. I will help you understand proper technique, ear training skills, and basic music theory. I want you to have the best time making music! I love teaching! Your first lesson is free so you can decide if I'm the right teacher for you or your child. I teach out of my private studio at Sosonic in Madison, WI. All ages are welcome!

Student Testimonials:

"I am not a strong singer, and I lack confidence, but Juli is so nurturing & encourages me to explore vocal techniques at my own pace." - Suzan

“I would definitely recommend Juli for your voice lesson needs! I was very shy about it, but she made me feel completely relaxed and unashamed. She helped me build a foundation of skills to use every time I perform. She is enthusiastic, encouraging, and positive, and she was exactly what I needed to take my singing to the next level!” - Mary W.


Rate: $25 for a 30 minute lesson
$40 for a 45 minute lesson
