      Music has been a way of life for Julie. Since the age of 4, she has been studying classical piano. By the age of 13 she had won several piano competitions such as the Gold Cup, and won the title of All-State Musician throughout her intermediate and High-School years. She's also performed in her share of recitals. She then began performing with the local Big Band in her area called the 225 Big Band. From that experience, she developed a new love of jazz and enjoyed the freedom the style offered. Julie then began meeting other musicians in the area and has since played with several different bands of several different genres: from heavy metal, to jazz trios, to leading worship at several different churches in the Pasadena and Houston area. Julie continued to develop her classical style and winning several competitions in the state of Texas, throughout high school, while immersing herself in the art of sight-reading and writing original music with the several groups she performed with. As Julie headed to her first year of college, where she attended Baylor University on scholarship to further study her instrument, she quickly learned that her heart yearned for something bigger. She moved back to Houston and began looking for developing bands in the area. She then came across the band Foster and joined the group. It is here that Julie quickly learned and found a passion for the synthesizer. They have performed at various festivals such as the SXSW in Austin, and have opened for some big names such as Saliva and Alpha Rev. She has since been developing her skill as a synth and keyboard player, and is now an accomplished musician both in the classics and alternative rock. Aside from her position as a piano teacher at the School of Rock, Julie also is an accompanist where she plays the piano for many high school musicals as well as Solo and Ensemble. Julie has also done various weddings for family and friends. Julie now helps to lead worship with the praise band at her own church, Monument Baptist of Deer Park, and is in the process of starting a new alternative rock group by the name Sinkara. She is also the keyboardist for the new Christian worship band Park10 and works all around the Houston area. Julie now attends the University of Houston where she is studying English Literature and Business Administration. She is set to graduate in the Spring of 2014, and is looking forward to all that life has to offer.
