Teaches Online
I am a Broadway musician with over 20 years of teaching experience. I know that each student learns differently so I use many different teaching methods and musical genres in lessons. I can help you get started on an instrument, improve your current abilities, work on school band and orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, prepare for college auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing. I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique.

Julie is amazing! I highly recommend her for learning the flute :)

Julie is very easy to work with, she listens to what my objective is and keeps that in mind during the lesson. Julie is very knowledgeable, experienced and fun to work with. I highly recommend her.

It's never too late to learn if you have the right teacher. Julie is knowledgeable, consistent, and amazingly patient with an old man that sometimes finds himself staring slack-jawed at the sheet music. When I hit a stumbling block, she always helps me find a way around it. If I'm having trouble internalizing a new concept, she always finds another way to look at it. Julie has helped me to take the modest musical aptitude that I've squandered for most of my life, and finally begin to focus it. I'm still early in the learning process, but Julie has me well on the road to achieving the personal goals I set for myself. Thanks Julie. Keep up the good work.
