"My son's musical skills developed quickly under Julie's careful instruction. Not only was he able to play a wide range of songs, but his enthusiasm to practice on his own increased along with his ability. I attribute this to Julie's encouragement and her respect of Noah as a young musician." -Susan Daily

"I decided to pick the violin back up as an adult. Julie was incredibly welcoming and made me feel very comfortable even though I had not touched a violin in over 25 years. She listened to what I wanted to accomplish and helped me on my way. One of my favorite things about working with Julie was when she would picked up her guitar and we would have a mini jam session with what we had just learned. I am now playing in the local orchestra and still enjoying the violin." -Hank Fields
