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!

My daughter is very happy with her piano lesson with Ms. Julie. Ms. Julie is very kind, very friendly, and she does her job very professionally. My daughter has improved a lot and always looks forward to her next lesson. Ms. Julie takes the lesson at a good pace and makes sure my daughter fully understands concepts before moving on. I would highly recommended Ms. Julie. -SK-

    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!
