About Juliana D
Juliana is a music teacher with over 5 years teaching experience. She studied classical Music Performance at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, with a master’s in Music Psychology at the University of Sheffield. She is passionate about community music-making, and has delivered projects for hospitals, care homes and early years settings. As a performer, she has played in folk band Shivelights, featured in BBC’s Songs of Praise and played recorder and whistles for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Juliana teaches recorders, whistles and flute from beginners to advanced. She also teaches violin and piano up to grade 3. Juliana usually begins by establishing the student's interests and goals, and tailors the lesson around them. She offers graded examinations in both Trinity and ABRSM. Her lessons centre around tone production, articulation, pulse/rhythm, music theory and music expression.
Juliana is experienced in both classical and folk genres, and she is comfortable teaching both using music notation and by ear. She is able to teach most genres.
In a first lesson, Juliana will generally start with a short chat in order to get to know her students (and/or parents when teaching children), and establish goals and interests. This will help to plan subsequent lessons. If the student has already begun learning, Juliana might ask them to bring a piece or two to play. Often after a lesson it can be difficult to remember everything a teacher has talked about or suggested, so Juliana will jot these suggestions down in a notebook for you to refer to during your private practice sessions.
Sometimes, it is best to order a tutor book so that it arrives before your first lesson, but if it doesn’t arrive in time, Juliana will have some photocopies or resources to get your started. The only other things you should bring are your instrument, and a notebook which
will allow your teacher to jot down what was talked about during the lesson.
