About Julia C.

Visit juliachoiviolinist.com/teaching for more info!

Julia’s students have successfully been accepted to Pre-College programs, won seats with various regional orchestral auditions, and achieved distinction as concertmaster in their school orchestras. A third-generation educator with over a decade in teaching experience, Ms. Choi is currently an Artist-Faculty with Charles Ives Music Festival in Ridgefield, CT. She has previously served for three years as a Teaching Assistant of the Ear Training Department at Juilliard, for both the College and Pre-College Divisions. She has previously taught and led coachings at Juilliard Pre-College, NYC Music School, and Friends with Music.

Julia strives to aid her students in becoming well-rounded musicians who are capable of playing the violin with strong and dependable technical skill. Her students not only express their music with personality and with heart, but also intellectually with their knowledge instilled through rigorous Theory and Ear Training. She has been fortunate to see her former students grow as musicians and as wonderful people. She has written recommendation letters for former students including for those who have gone on to continue their education at prestigious schools including Juilliard, Brown, Columbia, and Cornell.

Julia’s studio is open to aspiring musicians of all levels and ages — and as she believes that no two are the same, every lesson is customized specifically to each individual student’s needs and goals.

Julia is a fantastic teacher. As an adult picking up violin for the first time, I never expected to make much progress, let alone as fast as I have with Julia. She is kind and patient, while always instilling proper technique and fundamentals to very high standards. With her, I am learning not only to play notes, but to perform those notes beautifully and to truly understand the music. She is extremely dedicated to her students, no matter the age or level, and her dedication, in turn, helps me stay motivated and makes me want to try harder. Teachers like her are hard to find - I can't recommend her highly enough!
