About Julia Karosi

I was born in a musicial family. My mother is an opera singer, and my brother is an organist now living in the USA. Music is a familiar ambience for me if I can put it this way; it was „the first language�, which I started to learn in my mother’s belly. I had my first classical singing lessons with my mother, who tought me the basic techniques of breathing, and vocal training. I begun my first piano lessons when I was six, after which I started to play the violin as a second instrument. I was singing in the Angelica girl’s choir for a long time, while in high school I started to turn from classical music to jazz. During that time I was listening all-day-long my old bakelite disks, trying to memorize the vocal line. When I finished my graduate studies at the Eötvös Lóránd Tudományegyetem, I started to turn my interest towards Jazz studies in a more professional manner. My teachers were: Gábor Winand, �gnes Lakatos. At this point of my life I feel like getting to know new areas of jazz singing. It seems to be an eternal story...
