Like many singing teachers, Juliet Russell juggles a variety of hats including as a singer/songwriter, a vocal coach, choir director and music festival organiser. As well as running her own practice working with artists, Juliet loves to work with choirs, recently arranging and featuring in the Pamper’s tribute to midwives with Paloma Faith on lead vocals. Juliet is a vocal coach on two of the UK’s biggest entertainment shows; ITV’s The Voice and BBC1’s Michael McIntyre’s Big Show.
Line and Juliet talk about her random journey into singing and teaching from a very young age. In spite of not having any specific goals in the music industry, she has gone on to coach Grammy, Brit, MTV Europe Music and MOBO award-winning singers. As part of an MA Juliet got involved with the British Lung Foundation to research and develop a singing related tool to improve dysphonia in people with respiratory illnesses. Juliet also talks about how a teacher can prepare singers for TV singing competitions, how she got the gig and what the challenges of that kind of coaching are.
