Julia started life in the UK where she found an early love for the recorder and for the violin which she has studied, played and taught her whole life. Julia is currently active in her local community helping out with the Lafayette young strings program and also playing gigs on her violin with local bands in a variety of modern, folk, classical and jazz styles. Julia often brings her Violin and recorder to her Music Together classes and also plays some guitar and keyboard so the children can see a variety of live instruments.
Julia loves young children, especially now that her own two daughters are in high school and college. She discovered Music Together with her first baby daughter in New York; she was once a parent in class just like you!
