"The best violin teacher in Shreveport... and probably the world!"

-P. Kim

I started teaching violin lessons when I was in high school. Instantly, I knew that music education was my life's calling. Since then, I've taught violin, viola, music theory, and chamber music at Yale University, the Cleveland Institute of Music, Encore Chamber Music Institute, and in my own private studio. I've worked with students of all ages and skill levels. 

Everyone can, and should learn an instrument. I am passionate about guiding and inspiring each student, young or old, to discover their potential. Each student receives individualized, careful attention.  

My goal as a teacher is to make sure that every student develops their skills in order to support their lifelong appreciation and love for music. 


Learn the violin,
your brain will thank you later.

We've known for ages that music is good for you.  But science continues to gives us more and more evidence of music's benefit for the brain and well-being. Learning an instrument can improve long-term memory and lead to better brain development for those who start at a young age.

Not all musicians are good teachers. Not all teachers are good musicians.

Find a teacher with a proven track record in both performance and pedagogy.

Find the right teacher.

Passionate and engaging teacher. Has done wonders with our friends children getting them both excited and well versed with reading and playing music live. Can work on any level of expertise and is extremely active in the local music community. A true gem to have in shreveport. Don't miss out on the opportunity to work with Julia before her schedule fills up. Too good to miss out on!

Our daughter loves Ms. Julia and looks forward to her viola lesson all week! She's so talented and she's amazing with children. It's truly an honor to have someone so accomplished and so well known to teach our child. We recommend her 100%

Julia Clancy's love of music and passion for teaching inspired my children to continue with music lessons beyond their school orchestras. I highly recommend her for music lessons!

I didn't think online lessons could be so great! I also didn't realize how hard the violin really could be. Julia helped me develop my technique immensely. Thank you so much-- my  kids will be starting with her soon too!

Julia is a wonderful violin teacher with an extraordinary ability to connect with kids instantly and make them enjoy every session with learning music through fun and play leaving my 3 and 5 year old always asking for more and really looking forward to the class again next week. She is able to go down to the level of the children and bring out a sense of appreciation and true love for music which lays a very important foundation in their young minds. I am so fortunate to have found her as a teacher and will definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a violin or viola teacher in the Shreveport Bossier area.

I've wanted to take violin lessons for many years. Online violin lessons from Julia have been an amazing experience! She is very knowledgeable about the violin and music generally. I wouldn't have believed how well she could analyze my abilities and customize the lessons online. I think what I appreciate most is her patience.
