Julie Kvaerndrup

 Julie Kvaerndrup is a London based vocal coach, working with singers and songwriters from amateurs to performers.

She currently runs several vocal courses at City Academy, London, and teaches singing technique at LMA, London.

 Focus on Vocals is a space where Julie helps her students improve their voices and embrace the fun and joy of singing. She aims to break down the barriers prohibiting people from using their voices and empower them to confidently sing and tap into their unique vocal abilities. Whether singing professionally or just for enjoyment, Julie loves helping everyone explore the performer within through engaging, fun, and personally tailored lessons. No more stuffy books of scales; singing should be joyful! 

 Understanding music and the challenges vocalists face is at the core of Julie’s work. She’s earned a Bachelor’s in Contemporary Music Performance and a Master's in Composition. Music has been an integral part of her life and she has enjoyed composing and performing music since a young age. She is currently the front figure in Detox from Grey, an Electro-Pop band, and is a singer and keyboardist in Viriditas, a progressive rock band. 

 Throughout her career, she struggled with voice problems and low confidence in her own voice. This greatly affected her love for performance, and she started writing for other artists instead of performing her own songs. This changed when she attended an Estill course led by Anne-Marie Speed, and she felt she had finally met someone who could help her recover from her vocal problems. Julie since then underwent a few years of training with Anne-Marie Speed, and was able to work through her vocal struggles. During this time she found a passion for helping other performers. She became an Estill Master Trainer after four years of intense training in April 2020, trained by Anne-Marie Speed. 

 Tapping into her knowledge, experience, and passion for music, Julie helps students, aspiring singers, performers, and singer-songwriters embrace their voices, improve their technique, and grow their confidence to become strong performers.
