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 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 serve as a piano faculty member at 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 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!

Julie is a phenomenal piano teacher. I was an advanced level pianist who stopped for a couple decades to raise kids. I returned to lessons as an outlet during the pandemic (extra time on my hands!). I feel so fortunate I'm able to take lessons with Julie over zoom (I'm in LA, she's in NY). While I can practice the technical music on my own - Julie brings a deep understanding of the *interpretation* of the music and the intent of the composer, and is able to communicate this in a way that makes sense to me. She's extremely clear and helpful (and just SO talented). HIGHLY recommended.

It is such a privilege to work with Julie! During our lessons she can go really into detail with the interpretation of the piece. She knows how to get to the root of any problem area with her amazing technique. I’ve learned so much in this short amount of time and feel great about my progress!

I am an adult beginner and wanted a great teacher from the start. Julie checks all the boxes. She is incredibly talented and teaches just as well as she plays. Excellent at explaining new material/concepts and immediately recognizes any mistakes I am making. Always on-time and makes great use of our session time. I highly recommend Julie to others!!
