I have years of experience with children and adults. I can help prepare for a college audition, a music competition, start a new hobby or play just for fun.
My students enjoy playing in solo's, duets or in groups.
There are many opportunities through out the year for performances.
I really enjoy helping students to learn and grow in their love of music.
Encourage me as I learn
Makes you feel comfortable and not stressed. Very dedicated teacher, and very good at teaching adults.
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 .
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.
I am college educated music educator for over 20 years.
I am a member of several music organizations:
Michigan Music Association, Board Member, Past President
National Guild of Piano Teachers, 15 years
National Guild Auditions: Chairperson 9 years
Private lessons are $20 per 1/2 hour. I also offer 45 and 60 minute lessons.
Theory and computer/theory is included.
I started teaching right out of High School. I loved it so much that I shaped my life so that I could teach students for my full time career.
I have worked with ages 3-89 years. All levels and abilities. I have helped several students from elementary to their college auditions. I have worked with learning disabilites and health issues such as arthritis and autism.
In February some of my students participated in the Michigan Music Association annual competition. Everyone had a great time. Students really enjoy seeing the other students play.
In May we will be playing "National Guild Auditions" and in June will be our annual recital.
Make sure the teacher and student are a good match.
How often are the lessons?
How much practice should I expect each week?
How commited do you want to be? Casual playing? Hobby? College Prep?
