Lucia Hodge

Lucia Headshot - 10

Lucia Medeiros Hodge was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and has been living in Brisbane since late 2006.With a background in marketing and advertising and an MBA in e-commerce, Lucia decided to follow an old passion and studied a Bachelor of Music at the Queensland Conservatorium, specializing in Jazz Voice. Under the guidance of Irene Bartlett, Sharny Russell, Lisa Ryan-Mc Laughlin and David Spicer, Lucia could develop her skills as a singer, performer and musician, performing with various Conservatorium-based ensembles as the jazz choir “Raised Voices” and, the Brazilian ensemble, amongst other jazz ensembles. As a performer, Lucia has become a Latin Jazz specialist and formed in 2011 the Brazilian Jazz band “Coisa Linda”, with whom she has been performing around Queensland since then.

It was in 2013 that Lucia started teaching voice and, to become the best teacher she could be to her students, she went back to the Queensland Conservatorium to study a Graduate Diploma of Music Studies in Vocal Pedagogy. The course gave Lucia the tools to guide her students towards finding their own voice and style, singing the music they love in a healthy way. Lucia believes that once you understand how your voice works and develop critical awareness towards your own singing, it is easier to become a better singer and achieve technical vocal control. Lucia can also speak (and sing in) Portuguese, Spanish and French, teaching Portuguese and Spanish to all ages and levels, besides being a talented songwriter in her field.

Her song “Para de Bobeira” was a finalist in the World Music category for the prestigious Queensland Music Awards in 2015 and another composition (“Pois entao”) was highly commended in the World Music category for the Queensland Music Awards (2014).

Julia's musical tuition began at the age of nine, undertaking classical singing lessons. After years of eisstedfods, ameb exams, crafting her own songs and performing she branched into contemporary singing where she found a passion for jazz music that led her to auditioning for and completing a Bachelor at the Conservatorium of Music majoring in Jazz Voice. This new direction saw her perform at the Brisbane Jazz Club, The Powerhouse Museum and other venues in Brisbane while growing a skill set in contemporary singing genres, songwriting techniques, multi-instrumental abilities and teaching.

This philosophy aims to inspire the development of healthy, free, natural voices through the application of factual information, positive teaching techniques and exploration of sound.

Julia is currently finishing her Masters studies at the Conservatorium of Music while also performing with her duo 'Jayne' in the Brisbane Area.
