Co-Vocalizing with Julia

Co-Vo with us! Keep your voice in shape while you stay at home.

What is Co-Vo?

Co-Vo is short for Community Vocalizingfree 30-minute vocal workout sessions for classical singers to join in at home. We are all singing the workout together, as a community. 

When are the meetings?

Co-Vo sessions are held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00-6:30 PDT.

Please check back for future meeting dates. We will be adding special “theme” workouts (e.g., Co-Vo for Tenors, Co-Vo for Coloraturas) in the near future.

How does it work?

All participants log on to a Zoom call and remain muted while they sing along to a vocalizing routine that Dr. Julia Nielsen will guide, live, from her studio. The exercises and pitch ranges selected will be appropriate for all voice categories, although Julia will offer guidance on modifications for higher/lower voices and different levels of vocal development.

Is there a cost?

No. However, if you would like to make a donation, please consider giving to a Bay Area artists’ relief fund, such as the San Francisco Arts and Artists Relief Fund.

Can everyone see me while I sing?

Only if you want them to. You can join the Zoom call with video, or with audio only. (“Audio only” means you can hear and see Julia, but no one can see or hear you during the workout.) But we’d love to see your face! It deepens our sense of community.

Can singers who are not current studio members attend?

Absolutely. Please invite friends and colleagues to Co-Vo with us! Feel free to forward a link to this webpage to members of our classical singing community. Then they can contact Julia directly for the link at

How can I access these sessions?

A Zoom meeting link and password was sent to Julia’s studio members in their April 2020 studio newsletter. If you need this information again, or are not a current member of the studio, please contact Julia directly for the link at If you’ve joined us before, the link is the same for every meeting. 

I can’t attend the sessions this week. Are there more?

Yes. We will hold meetings each Monday and Wednesday evening, from 6-6:30pm PDT while we “stay at home”.
