Inspiring & equipping students
to be life-long musicians!

Growing up, I remember the EXCITEMENT of finally mastering a difficult piece (and then playing it over and over again!), improvising for the very first time, and performing duets with other pianists! Playing the piano is often where I feel God's pleasure, and I'm so thankful for the opportunity He's given me to share my love of music with my students, with the goal that they will also experience the joy of making music throughout their lives!

Purpose

Next

I love music, and I love working with children. It is truly a privilege to be able to combine these two passions into my career as a music teacher. 

I have a B.A. in Music from Thomas Edison State University. I am also a member of MTNA, CAPMT, and MTAC.

Outside of music, I also enjoy reading, history, traveling, learning about other cultures (especially the food!), volleyball, and spending time in the beautiful outdoors.

Teaching Philosophy

As a teacher, I believe that I am responsible for developing each student's music potential to the best of my ability. Whether or not my students pursue music professionally, my desire is that they will have all the tools they need to continue to be successful musicians even after they have discontinued lessons.

Overall, I hope my students will develop a commitment to excellence in music and a life-long love for music. I strongly believe this is only possible through the dedication of the student, his parents, and the teacher.

~Alison C.

Julia is a wonderful teacher. I highly recommend her. She is an incredible, highly-trained musician herself, and her studio is very organized and well-run. she is great with children and is able to find a balance with challenging them and also making music fun. You won't find a better piano teacher. I recommend her whole-heartedly.

~Stephanie A.

Julia and her teachings are the epitome of professionalism. My children have learned more, have been encouraged more in the 8-9 months of Pianoforte Studio than they had in 3-4 yrs at previous lessons. Julia is consistent, talented, positive and motivating. We are honored to be in Miss Julia's piano family!

~Judy L.

I highly recommend Pianoforte Studio! Julia Takeoka is a wonderful teacher. My son has been taking lessons for three years and we are very pleased with his progress. Julia is a true teacher. She constantly comes up with new ways to inspire and challenge her students. She is encouraging and motivating.

~Christie G.

Your summer camp was an amazing experience for my two boys. they had no desire to learn piano prior to the camp, but after camp, they were both excited about piano and have been practicing the skills you taught them, telling their friends, and showing such great progress!

~Malachi L. (student)

Miss Julia is a great piano teacher who adds fun and creativity to our lessons. She makes up great themes and projects to do throughout the year. 

~Jolie A. (student)

Miss Julia is the best teacher EVER! We have [group classes] once in awhile. They are very fun. We get to make projects and learn more about music by playing games. She also makes us yummy treats! If you want a very professional teacher, go to Miss Julia!
