Julia began playing the trumpet at age 11 in her middle school band. She found her real passion was singing, so she began training with a voice coach, playing piano, and performing in musical theatre productions.
In 2004 Julia entered the School of Music and Theatre Arts at Washington State University. She studied voice, piano and guitar and was an avid performer in the WSU Library Atrium Recital Series. Julia worked as the solo cantor and vocalist for the Catholic Church in her college town for 2 years. She was cast in 6 productions of the school's Opera Workshop Series including "Jane Eyre," "Naughty Marietta" and "Der Freitschutz." She also played her trumpet in the Cougar Marching Band for 2 seasons. Julia taught private voice and piano lessons from her studio during college until she graduated in May, 2010.
In 2010 and 2011 Julia instructed group piano courses in Seattle and Issaquah Public Elementary after-school programs. Now she teaches private music lessons from her home studio or travels to student's homes to instruct and lessons. When she's not teaching lessons she works as a caregiver to disabled children and senior citizens, where she is admired for using music as a therapy tool.

Experienced and highly qualified instrumental instructor.
University credentials from programs that remain amongst the best in music performance and education in the nation. These credentials are matched by 10 years of performance and teaching experience - New York and Seattle.
As an experienced soloist, orchestral and lead player, I have had the time to develop a deep physical connection to my instruments. This connection, gained after years of practice and performance, informs my approach to instruction. My goal is to impart technique and knowledge that assists the student to break through physical barriers and achieve maximum musical expression, no matter what the style.
