Introduction: 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 recently made my Carnegie hall debut in 2022. 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. I previously served as a piano faculty member at Bronx Conservatory of Music, Lindeblad School of Music, and Arete Music Academy, in addition to teaching private students. I have taught students at varying levels of experience and from varying backgrounds, ranging from 5-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 believe playing music is not just a skill, but a joy, and I hope we can have fun learning both!

My son is 13 years old and has played classical piano for 7 years. He participates in various New York State and Royal Conservatory of Music exams. His "regular" teacher went on maternity leave this past summer and we were so happy to find Julie. She was wonderful! Kind, patient, and engaging. My son and her both like to explore the "why's" in piano and he really gravitated to her style of teaching. He learned a great deal and looked forward to his lessons.

I only took piano lesson with Julie for a month but I incredibly in love with her teaching method. She is on time and she able to curate the lesson in according to your need. Not only that, I felt I has accomplished so much more with her than with other piano teachers and surprisingly by online method! Highly recommend Julie!

Julie was a fantastic piano teacher! I am an adult learner, with some previous piano training from when I was 6 years old. She re-taught me how to sight-read and how to have confidence as an older student. I am so impressed by her patience and constant encouragement. She definitely inspires me to keep at it with learning the piano! 11/10 recommend

My daughter has been taking online lessons with Ms. Lee for over a year now, and I could not be more pleased!! Without online lessons, we would not have access in our area to a teacher of Ms. Lee's caliber - she is a true professional, extremely punctual, very hard-working, and shows a sincere concern for her pupils. Her instruction is simply fantastic! In the past year, my daughter has made tremendous advances in both technique and expression, which has been noticed by others as well. I highly recommend Ms. Lee, and we plan to continue lessons with her as long as possible!

Love Julie! She's informative, helpful and flexible based on my (very) busy work schedule. I'm a semi-beginner, with experience from when I took lessons as a kid but I haven't played in years since. She was great at helping figure out what skill level to start up at again.

    I typically spend the first lesson assessing the student's ability, and recommend a book depending on their level and age group. Will probably learn a song or two together for homework afterwards!
