I've continued my professional career as a drummer and have great tips and insights on how you can become like the great drummers you love! From jazz to pop to rock and blues we will work on it all!

Would you like to join a band? I'm also an instructor at Webster University and the Community music schools so I know multiple setting for performance opportunities!

Students of all ages in a personal relaxed atmosphere.
Customized to each student. If the student has not previously taken lessons I use Piano Adventures as the basic course guide. I have found it the most productive and enjoyable for my students. I uses a minimum of the Lesson and Theory book for my younger students with either the basic course or Accelerated course depending on their age and maturity. Adults begin with the All In one adult book. I add the other books that accompany each level based on the particular students needs and interests. I believe that a good grounding in Theory is essential as a student who becomes proficient in sight reading, no matter how well he/she plays by ear, will find that the doors for lifetime musical fulfillment with be much wider. However, with a student who has already had some lessons I will be happy to continue with any method that the student is currently using.
I also believe in supplementing the Piano course with the student's favorite ...

Kathy came to my home for my lesson. She has a very pleasant personality and it is very easy to follow her instructions. She kept the pace up, yet did not overload me. It's been a number of years since I have played and she did an excellent job on getting me back on the keys. I am looking forward to our next lesson.

An experienced guitar player of 15 years. Especially good with beginners including both very young and older students. It's never too early or late to start playing! Will cater a specific personal lesson plan to your desires to make sure we move at YOUR best pace. We'll build a solid foundation so that you can learn how to teach yourself and continue to grow and love music long after these lessons. We can get you up and running with your favorite tunes or start delving into the musical theory side of things. I make sure that our lessons are fun but also challenging and I make sure we spend some time learning how to build finger strength, how to improvise, and (most importantly) how to play with other musicians!

"Amazing teacher - Professional - Really knows how to teach

I started flute lessons with Julie when I was in 7th grade. She helped boost my confidence in playing the flute and over time set me in the right direction for the elite high school music program which I am in now. Our lessons were always on time. She would help me work on sight reading and music pieces I was struggling with while correcting some of my bad habits. I was very comfortable asking any question and her teaching style was easy for me to understand and follow. Every week I looked forward to my lesson with her. Over time I was amazed at how much better I was playing. She was very knowledgeable of the audition requirements for music students preparing for more advanced opportunities. She even helped me with the audition piece for the BCMEA festival, (Bucks County Music Educators' Association), which I was selected and performed in.

In summary – Julie is a great teacher. She is very knowledgeable in other instruments, too. She also helped me start to play the piccolo along with my flute lessons. In addition to playing the flute, I now play piccolo in the high school marching band. I will always be grateful for the support and outstanding lessons she provided for me."

The Shy Singer's Survival Guide

Getting up on stage can be scary for any new musician, but the feelings of anxiety can be even more intense if you consider yourself on the quiet side. So how can a shy singer survive? Before you relegate yourself to the audience for the rest of your life, know that many timid musicians have made a name for themselves - Barbra Streisand, Bob Dylan and Carly Simon, to name a few, have all dealt with anxiety or shyness off-stage. The good news is that there are ways to train yourself to become a c …
