I am a professional pianist with a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the Juilliard School, and currently working on my Doctoral of Musical Arts at Manhattan School of Music. I have worked with several world-renowned pianists including Robert McDonald, Horacio Gutierrez, and Haesun Paik. Their influence not only helped me develop as a pianist but also taught me how to teach and showed me the impact of truly masterful teacher can have on their students.

I serve as a piano faculty member at Bronx Conservatory of Music and Lindeblad School of Music, in addition to teaching private students. I have taught students at varying levels of experience and from varying backgrounds, ranging from 4-year-old to adult. Some of them had their very first piano lesson with me and others are promising concert pianists at Juilliard pre-college.

I have been immersed in music schools and music training my entire life, and through the years I have learned what teaching methods are effective and which aren't, along with variations to fit different students' needs. A good teacher builds a foundation in their student and then supports and encourages them to ultimately teach themself. Although it sometimes can be a lengthy process, I hope to teach my students to become independent musicians, capable of more than just playing a few songs. While this can be challenging, I try to help my students not only learn to play, but also learn to love to play.

I like that Ms. Julie can be both kind and challenging. My son always comes out of his lesson sounding better and excited to learn more, which for me as a parent is the most I can hope for. I have also heard her play and wow - she is the real deal! I'm so glad we found her, and would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Julie never yells, is always kind, incredibly patient, knows her stuff, challenges you when its time to be challenged, keeps you on your toes, and, you're guaranteed to learn a new joke AND a new piece of music! Dr. Julie is the Best Piano Instructor Ever!!

Ms. Julie is a very sweet instructor. She’s been with my son for over a year now and he has improved in piano tremendously. I fully recommend her, very responsible, sweet and understanding.

Julie was really the perfect fit for me. I have always been musical, but never learned to read music or play an instrument. Julie picked up on where I was right away and fit her lessons to my style perfectly. She found me a book that was paced well for my level and she quickly saw what i was and was not good at. Her tips on how to think about the music helped me move faster through the lessons and she mixed in some tunes that I liked to keep it more relaxed and fun. Can't recommend her more highly. I'm hoping to continue to work with her long term and get to a point where I can actually say "I play piano."

Ms. Julie has been my teacher for over six months now. In that time, she has proved to be both a wealth of knowledge and an engaged instructor. I am an adult learner, and when I first decided to try my hand(s) at the piano, I was relieved to find that Ms. Julie was receptive to the challenge! I highly recommend her lessons for children, youth, and adults. Her background means that she is versatile and can adjust lessons accordingly to each student. Without a doubt, her teaching style will have you feeling invigorated and wanting to learn more!

My daughter has been taking lessons from Ms. Julie for close to a year now and it's been great. Ms. Julie is very patient and encouraging through every lesson. She gave my daughter confidence and guided her through her first two piano recitals. Definitely recommend Ms. Julie for lessons.

My daughter( 7 yrs old) is very happy with Ms. Julie and always looks forward for her next lesson. Ms. Julie is very friendly, very professional, highly efficient, most importantly found the perfect teacher for my daughter. She takes the lesson at a good pace and makes sure my daughter fully understands concepts before moving on. Highly recommended!

Miss. Julie was phenomenal with my daughter. Even with the constrain through a pandemic she kept my daughter engaged and excited for her weekly piano classes. Miss Julie gave her all the tools she needs to continue to build her confidence and enhancing her piano skills.
