    Julie finds the best way to approach the children in every lesson, she is well balanced in keeping them interested in learning and at the same time having fun .

  • The Berger Family

    Julie has the gift to teach and share her talents. Julie is absolutely passionate about music and those under her guidance, because of this it is our pleasure to recommend Julie Desrosiers for piano lessons for all age groups. Our daughter began lessons with Julie at age 6 and now that it is time for college Julie has assisted, guided and instructed her through her auditions to be accepted into many music programs with scholarship opportunities at each. Our daughter’s decision will be difficult because of the doors Julie has opened for her. We are tremendously grateful to her for everything she has taught our daughter and the joy her music has brought to our family.

If a student is a begginner we start with an age appropriate song book(s) and start from the basics. Students always have an input in the types of music we learn.

If a student has experience, the first lesson we evaluate where the student is and talk about what they would like to learn and work on.
