I teach all forms of literacy including listening, speaking, writing, and reading English. I teach grammar, phonics, word recognition and comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and effective, expressive, and creative writing skills. I have been an avid reader and writer ever since my elementary school days. At college, I received a perfect score on my departmental English exam. I have three education degrees: A double bachelor's in elementary education and music, and a master's in reading. I am presently a Mesa Laubach Literacy Council Board Member and Tutor. I love to help students become more proficient in the English language.

Today was our first lesson. Karen was on time and professional, and also very personable. She took the time to see what level each of my girls was at. I like that she teaches theory along with playing.

About Julie

I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (5 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise i

When I began lessons with Julie, I had piano experience, but it had been years, 35 actually, that had flown by. I've recently retired, and enjoy playing piano up to two hours each day. I chose Julie because of her expertise and experience. Julie is an outstanding teacher who possesses a legitimate love for music. She has a patient ability with simplifying complex subjects and makes learning fun. I hope to continue taking lessons with Julie for a long time to come. I would recommend Julie to anyone, at any age, interested in piano regardless of skill level.
Colby M.
As an adult student it was hard for me to finally commit to finally taking piano lessons. I always had the excuses that I was either too busy or too late in life to start.

Julie has gave me every reason to throw those excuses out the window. After a month of lessons I can already tell an improvement in my reading of music and knowledge of music. She knows how to making things easy for me to understand while also balancing that with a great challenge.

I have very high expectations and goals set for myself, that many would say are "too high". But I have no doubt Julie will get me to where I want to go!

100% would recommend to anyone.

Just had my first lesson with Julie. She was great! So energetic, fun, and personable. It’s obvious she’s a seasoned educator who knows her subject. I left our first meeting confident I had chosen a teacher who will help me achieve my goals. Can’t wait to flourish under her instruction!

"My lessons with Laurel have been fantastic! She's very patient & knows exactly how to make everything make sense & how to break things down in order give proper analysis in whatever she teaches from piano to singing to basic music theory. She was able to answer any questions I had in full detail. She's a very warm & welcoming person that loves to teach & can do so very well. I highly recommend her as an instructor. She is with out a doubt, a genius of her craft."
