Julia, Toronto

Born into a musically talented family, I have a passion for singing and what you might call the musical gene. But until I met Art Nefsky my voice was timid and I performed standing still, staring at an imaginary spot at the back of the room. Those childhood habits of a frightened chubby girl afraid of judgement, imperfection and failure took all the fun out of sharing my passion with others, and enjoying the thing I love most – singing!

In the very first group class, Art pinpointed what was holding me back. His comedic yet realistic and firm yet caring approach helped me get out of my own way. I’m now not only comfortable on stage, I crave the experience! I thank Art and Showoffs for that amazing life change; I’m a confident and calm presenter, speaker AND singer, and all without fear.
