"I loved that Abi made so much progress on learning the keyboard, even though she was having so much fun she didn't even notice she was learning. She went from 'hunt and peck' to playing with five fingers on both hands (at age 3)!" -Andrea C. Abigail's mom

"Julia performed the two songs she wrote at the Santa Barbara Family Vacation Center Talent Show... The audience was blown away, not only that she could play a song with two hands and with chords in the left hand, but that she wrote the songs herself! This is truly a remarkable program..."- Joyce D., Julia's mom.

Can you tell us when you knew that you would become a professional musician?

You know, now that I'm thinking about it, it was not a really profound moment per say. I was with my aunt driving in Noe Valley when I was about 13 and “So What” by Miles Davis was playing. I remember that when he started that trumpet solo with only two notes I felt that I had been hit with a bag of bricks. I remember thinking that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.

Tell us about your musical & educational background.

I first started studying music on the east coast in Baltimore when I went to an arts high school. I was really fortunate to have such great teachers and mentors at such an early age. I then decided to attend the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where I studied under David Tanenbaum to complete my B.A. After this I made the decision to move to France where I studied with Judicael Perroy in Paris and then at the Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin with my mentor Alexis Muzarakis. My years in France had an enormous impact not just as a performer and musician but also as an educator of music. I consider myself extremely lucky to have had such great examples of teachers and musicians.

What do you love most of about teaching?

After playing music for almost twenty years, I still am so amazed by the simple mechanics of music. Because of the vibration of a string, we can be moved to tears. As a teacher, when I find that spark in a student that ignites excitement and they become so overwhelmed with happiness to do that one thing, for me, this is the best part. I think that along with continuing progress from the student, these are the reasons why we teach.
