"Judith is the best!

She helped me a lot with gaining more confidence and control while singing. Every lesson I learn something new about my voice, get delicious tea and it's always fun."

I was introduced to Judith via her YouTube channel "Scat Kitchen".

As an aspiring jazz pianist, I figured taking vocal lessons would influence my creativity.

My mind was blown by how little I knew about singing in general.

If you are looking for a vocal coach, go for Judith (also this is coming from someone who has had vocal lessons before from several teachers).

My reasons are-

1) If you can learn jazz singing, singing other genres would be a piece of cake to you (Again this is my opinion. Some might argue) plus there will be originality in your voice

2. Judith is a Scat singing Professor with a solid grasp of other vocal styles. 3. She knows exactly what to fix and how to fix it.

I remember for years I used to think that since I was naturally high-pitched, I was always going to sound like a chipmunk.

But my life changed when she gave me a couple of jaw relaxation exercises which brought about some raspiness to my tone.

 

Just 5 lessons with her did wonders for my vocals.

And no this is neither self-proclamation nor something Judith herself said, but what the people around me said about my singing.

"I was very nervous because I had to prepare for an audition that required a pretty high level of Scat singing which I have had very little experience doing. I came across Judith's videos and instantly felt a deeper understanding of what it takes to improvise successfully.

I've been a singer and performer professionally for almost 20 years but never really picked up theory and working with Judith helped me immensely.

And I got a callback.

Thanks Judith!"

"I have been a voice professional for over thirty years and have done thousands of exercises and routines to care for and improve my voice over that time. None have been as fun, musical and creative as Judith's warm-ups and exercises. She makes vocal practice something to look forward to rather than a daily chore, so much, that I'll always end up refreshed and energized. Doo-bah-days!"

"Judith is a brilliant teacher and a great mentor who really guides you to a better and more positive path in your music career. I have been a vocal coach for years and still receive so many helpful methods from each of Judith's lessons! She is a teacher who really shares, and I enjoy and love to take challenges from her. If you are a beginner to Jazz she is the right person, and if you are a professional you would learn a lot and even become a better you!"

"I found Judith via her YouTube videos. They were really interesting and useful. I reached out to her for some help with scatting. She was really patient with me even though I didn’t have any experience with that.

Besides scatting, she is also a great vocal coach. She is helping me to find the areas that I’ve never explored before and encourages me a lot which helped me to see more possibilities for my voice. It has been a lot of fun with her and I would definitely recommend working with Judith!"

She helped me to really understand my voice and I've never felt so confident with my singing. Totally worth it!"

Music has accompanied and enriched me as a hobby all my life, it is like the breathing of my soul. I discovered my enthusiasm for jazz late in life, especially improvisation and scat singing. For me as an amateur, conventional methods were much too complex, so I am overjoyed to have found Judith. With her teaching method, which is intuitive and structured at the same time, she helped me to make significant progress in a short time. In the meantime, improvisation is often more important to me than the given melody.

"After only one lesson (!) I do understand how to practice my scat singing so much better! Judith is wonderful at explaining and giving tips.

She made it simple and I was more motivated after the lesson.

She is also very visual both in her lessons and in her films on Youtube.

So much fun combined with experience and knowledge.

I just love her! I can´t wait to meet her again!

Now to my daily practice with Judith!"
