What clients are saying:

"My kids love Miss Julie. She works them hard and makes sure they have fun at the same time. I love her organizational skills and her professionalism. My girls have come a long way under her guidance. Thanks, Miss Julie!!"  - M.B., Webster Groves

"Julie has all the ideal characteristics for a piano teacher.  She is kind, encouraging, and has a high level of patience for younger students.  We love her!" - R.T.,  Crestwood

"We have had lessons with Julie for the last 3 years starting with our oldest and now for three of our kids. She is patient, flexible on scheduling lessons and adapts her teaching style according to the kids' various abilities and ages. The kids enjoy playing in the semi-annual recitals and we enjoy that the focus is making piano fun and not (necessarily) perfection. We can't wait to sign our youngest up to begin lessons!"  - A.F., Saint Louis

"Miss Julie is awesome!  My two sons love her.  She is very calm and expects hard work; but, knows how to have fun, also.  I have been impressed with how she is able to work with both of my sons with two very different learning styles."  - B.H., Crestwood
