Julie Anderson graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a B.S. in Elementary Education with a music concentration. Julie has additional graduate credits in music education in Kodaly and Orff certification, studying with Jean Sinor, Grace Nash, and Jane Alexander. Since coming to Jamestown in 1989, she studied piano with Mrs. Helga Hulse for 14 years and performed in faculty recitals of Keyboard Instructors. Currently, she is a church musician for Grace Episcopal Church in Randolph and Universal Unitarian Church in Jamestown.
She has taught general music classes in public and private schools, private piano, and guitar for years “too numerous to mention”. Constantly researching for ideas in music education and piano pedagogy, Julie applies new ideas to reading music, looking for patterns in rhythms and sound to teach students of all ages and levels to become musically literate through poetry, movement, and math.
