Hello future student!

I love teaching because I get to support a passion for music and learning. I personalize interactive lessons to reflect your strengths and goals. Every student is unique, and I can't wait to learn more about you.

I have been teaching viola and violin for 10 years. I hold a Master's degree in Teaching, a Bachelor's degree in Music, and also teach Middle and High School English. I am a freelance performer in the Portland area in symphonies, operas, and chamber concerts.

I am always looking for ways to grow and learn along with my students, and welcome any age or level.

Feel free to message me with any questions you may have.
I look forward to meeting you!

Viola · In studio

Julie is the best teacher ever! I play violin but have been looking to improve my viola skills. She gave me so many useful tips and my playing has drastically improved. She listens so carefully and is really cool and funny too! So lucky to have found her.
