 Julia is happy for prospective students to book a consultation lesson to enable them to experience her teaching style, or for beginners to find out more about playing the oboe before making a commitment. For beginners who do not have their own oboe, Julia can advise on appropriate instruments and rental schemes.

"I just picked up Ready, Steady, Blow for a friend of mine whose daughter is just starting the oboe. What a great recording! I especially enjoyed Somewhere over the Rainbow."

- George Yefchak, conductor and oboist
