    About Julia


    Julia sings with Seattle Women's Choir and hosts 2 annual studio recitals for her students to perform. While attending University Julia was an avid performer of the WSU Atrium Recital Series, the School's Musicals, Operettas, and a member of the Cougar Marching Band.

    ***Lesson Details***

    A personalized plan is made for each student depending on their goals and level of commitment. Intensity varies depending on what the student wants out of lessons. Some students are singing/playing competitively, and some are just singing/playing for fun!

    At each lesson the student will play or sing the songs they practiced. Julia will congratulate the student on their improvements and then use a variety of methods to help the student become more comfortable with the trouble spots. The next part of the lesson will be used to introduce new material.

    "I believe learning the language of music can be a great adventure." ~Julia

    My daughter has really embraced learning the guitar in part to the patience and encouragement Julia provides. The 1-1 attention Julia gives creates a unique and fun learning environment. Lessons with Julia are a highlight to the week so much that my younger son will be starting lessons with her!

    She's fantastic with kids! Our 9 yr old has started taking singing lessons from Julia and she's wonderful. She knows how to explain musical terms and techniques in an easy to understand way for our daughter. Best of all, she's encouraging and makes it all fun!!
