Julie Goussot discovered lyrical singing within the master's degree at the Toulon Opera under the baton of Giuliano Carella. In addition to her design studies, the soprano received her DEM (Diplôme d'Études Musicales) with excellent honors from the jury unanimously in Nîmes. Encouraged by her teacher from Nîmes Daniel Salas, she entered the competition for the CNSMD (Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse) in Lyon in 2016. She was admitted and joined the class of Brian Parsons, then Mireille Delunsch. She perfected her studies at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München in the class of Andreas Schmidt.

With his friend, met on the benches of the CNSMD, the pianist Rodolphe Lospied, they performed in chamber music duo under the name of Duo Symbiose. Fascinated by the repertoire of melody and lied, they received valuable advice from David Selig, Charles Bouisset and Hartmut Höll.
