Julie is invested in her student's success and individual piano goals. I came to her as an adult wanting lessons and she has been wonderful helping me make progress on the piano.

I loved my first lesson!! As a beginner I was a little nervous walking in but Julie made me comfortable and didn't overwhelm me with too much. I actually learned more than I expected and can't wait for my second lesson!!!

My granddaughters have been taking piano lessons since kindergarten for the last 4 years from Miss Julie. She is a great teacher, patient and kind, and the kids love her.
