Hello, my name is Julia! I have a masters in Viola Performance from The Juilliard School, am the viola Academist with the Kammerakademie Potsdam, and a former violist of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. I teach both viola and violin, from beginner to advanced levels. I am also available for practice help sessions or one time coachings. I grew up learning through the Suzuki method, so I teach with an emphasis on developing a good ear as well as good instrumental technique. The most important thing I want my students to develop is a love for music in all its diverse forms and the instrumental technique that will allow them to involve themselves in that musical world!

Julia is an excellent teacher and a really nice person. Despite her expertise, her enthusiasm & instruction makes you feel at ease so that you can focus. She has been impressive at planning/gauging the lessons to my level (beginner), with a focus on the next lesson each time. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a mentor at any level of learning.
I just completed my first lesson with Julia and it was light years beyond what I had expected. Julia is a personable and delightful person who put me at ease almost immediately, but equally important, she has an intrinsic understanding of the instrument and quickly assessed where I was in my skill level and what was needed for me to advance. I really enjoyed my lesson and feel like I made the right choice in an instructor.:)
Wow. Love this incredible expertise. Best teacher,
