Woodwind (Oboe, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone & Recorder) teacher. Music Theory teacher.
Hi, I’m Julie. I’m a woodwind and piano teacher here on Anglesey,where I also work as a Music and English teacher for Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones in Amlwch . I trained as a professional oboe player at the Royal Academy of Music
I started my musical career at the age of 9 playing the flute, moving onto the oboe at age 11. From there I worked my way up through all of the local youth orchestras, until reaching the National Youth Orchestra of Wales, with whom I performed on principal oboe.
I studied at the Royal Academy of Music from 1993 – 1997 and upon graduating, I was offered a position as a woodwind teacher with the Swindon Music Cooperative, where I provided woodwind tuition to 4 primary schools and 4 secondary schools, whilst also directing the junior youth wind band and co-directing the parent and toddler music group.
Since then I have taken my teaching and performing skills worldwide, including two years in Australia where I worked as a teacher and trainer and performed on principal oboe for the Fremantle Symphony Orchestra.
After becoming a ‘mummy’ to my three lovely children I returned to Anglesey, and completed my postgraduate certificate in education before beginning work as a secondary school Music and English teacher in 2017.
I am passionate about the value music can bring to children and adults alike. In my career as a music performer and music teacher I have witnessed first hand the joy music can bring, and the confidence it can cultivate in anyone who participates in it. The benefits of musical education are endless, and it is my privilege and joy to be a part of everyone’s musical journey here at AngleseyMusic, just tap the Book Online button below to start that journey together.
