About Julie
I have more than 10 years experience teaching private piano lesson to all levels, beginner to advanced. I have taught all ages and I have experience with special needs students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Learning to play the piano should be fun but it should be taken seriously to achieve the best results. I strive to instill a passion for music in all my students and teach them how to make music a part of their everyday life. I believe that all students learn differently and I try to plan lessons around each students individual interests and goals, while including the exercises and lessons t
hat I know are needed to build knowledge and strength. I am using Bastien books, Piano Adventures and Hanon exercises as well as pop, Broadway, rock, etc.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must have a piano or keyboard and lesson books. They may purchase the lesson books or I will purchase them and they may reimburse me. I will provide any special music arrangements needed and theory homework.

Charles is just great....there's no way I could have found a better teacher. Not only does he know everything there is to know about music, he's interested in keeping the lessons and learning interesting and fun. You can tell he really cares about trying to help his students to both progress, learn some theory, but to have fun and build skills they'll use/enjoy for a long time. Really impressive.

Charlie has been giving lessons to my son and is the absolute best! He is passionate about music and brings such energy to each lesson. My son is learning how to play jazz from Charlie after being classically trained. It has opened up a whole new world for him.

It great listening to the lessons because Charlie and my son enjoy music so much.

Charlie is the best piano teacher I have worked with. In just two months of taking lessons with him, I have learned myriads of info about music, theory, jazz, blues, and the classics. Being under his tutelage is truly an honor and he is patient with me even when I don't practice (Although I must say he's a real stickler for that). I would recommend anyone to him with a desire for music whether you are 5 or 55.

My son has been taking beginning piano lessons with Maria for 3 years. She was always prompt in arriving on time with her lessons, never late. She was very pleasant and my son learned so much from her and improved greatly.

My daughter, Francesca, took voice lessons with Miss Amy for about 3 years.I did not even my child had a voice!!! But over the course of those 3 years, WOW, my child can sing!!!! Amy is smart, understanding, and talented beyond words!! Francesca LOVED going to her voice lessons every week! We were utterly saddened when she had to move. I cried for days wondering how I was going to tell Francesca that Miss Amy was moving!!! She was one of my daughters BFF's. We miss her soon much! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND AMY!!!! Any child would be lucky to have Amy share her talents with them!!!

Amy taught me for about two years, if I am remembering correctly. She took me from a preteen with a nasal and breathy voice, to someone who is confident, with a strong voice. Since working with her, I have been told I should sing on Broadway. She taught me ear training as well as general singing technique. She also taught me classical songs and Broadway music. But most importantly, she was a huge support in my life. I highly recommend her.

My daughter Emerson took voice lessons and basic piano lessons from Miss Amy starting at 4 years old up until Miss Amy relocated. To say we were devastated that Miss Amy moved is an understatement. Not only was Miss Amy a wonderful voice teacher, she had a special way of connecting with our daughter. Her patience, creativity, compassion made her a perfect fit for Emerson. We still miss her so much and truly believe that any child that has an opportunity to work with Miss Amy will be truly lucky!
