Julia Norton is a singer, actor and voice coach, with over 25 years experience teaching people how to enjoy a free and healthy voice.
Born in the UK, she has been singing her whole life and teaching groups to sing since she was 18! Always compelled to understand more about the emotional story behind a singer’s experience, she discovered Voice Movement Therapy in 1998 and studied for two years before qualifying as a registered practitioner and moving to San Francisco in 2000. Since that move, she has composed music for theatre & circus, music directed, produced an award winning album ‘Lullaby Island’, performed jazz and musical theatre, and trained as a voice actor. She was a teaching artist for the San Francisco Opera Guild and Summer Conservatory, has presented at conferences all around the world teaching therapists, dancers and expressive artists how to use their voices to free their emotions and creativity, and was the former director of the International Association for Voice Movement Therapy.
In 2018 she won a Voice Arts award for her role in Disney’s Star Wars game Jedi Challenges and launched her popular podcast Dark and Twisty Tales which is available on iTunes.
She currently divides her time between teaching, acting, singing and getting up to stuff with her family and noisy terrier.
