Violin Teacher



As a violin teacher and violinist myself, I know that it is possible for anyone to learn how to play the violin.

I want to inspire you to learn how to play the violin.

And that can be anything, from learning how to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, to playing in a folk band. I believe, that SO MUCH MORE is possible, as most people think. I think it is possible for you to have a lot of fun with playing the violin – and that you can even become really good at it, even if you never touched an instrument before. 

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.– Dr. Seuss

Meet Julia

Hi fellow violinist, I am so happy that you found my website!

I am Julia and I love learning things. 
Everytime that I learn something new, I feel like a new world unfolds for me.

One of the things I learned in my life, is playing the violin. I  started learning the violin since I was 11 years old and have been playing ever since.

The violin helped me to have great adventures all of the world. I played in bands, made tons of music friends, travelled around as a street musician, wrote my own music and so much more. Violin literally changed my life. And right now I consider myself being very fortunate, because I am able to make living just from playing and teaching the violin. For me, having the “perfect” technique or being the “best” violinist, has never been important. I love to practice the violin and learn new things, but I also have a lot of other interests.

Most important to me, are all the things I get to experience through playing the violin. Playing the violin can is so much more than just playing an instrument. It helps you to explore beautiful parts of life, that you could have never experienced without:

  •  The excitement, of playing on a big stage in front of a lot of people.
  • The connection that you can experience with people that don’t even speak your language
  • The amazing feeling of playing in an orchestra and working together with more than 100 other musicians to play that beautiful Haydn piece.
  • The calmness and peace of mind that practicing and playing for yourself can give.
  • The amount happiness you can experience when you are playing a tune you love with your musical friends.

If you already play the violin, you probably know what I am talking about.And if you didn’t experience this yet, but if you are one of those people that gets excited about this idea, I want to tell you: this is all possible for you too! I heard stories of people that started to play the violin at 35 and even made a living out of it 5 years later. So, for you playing on a jamsession or in a band would be totally possible (yes, also if you are much older than 35!) I really want to encourage you to follow your dream, if you have the dream to learn how to play the violin. You won’t regret the life experiences that you will get from it.

A few facts about me

  • I lived in 4 different countries and at least made an attempt to learn 5 different languages (At the moment I am practicing German in Germany)

  • I cycle literally everywhere, no matter in which country I live. I think it is some kind of Dutch thing. (You should have seen how people were reacting in the USA, when I was cycling with my all my groceries AND violin!)

  • My favourite color is red. I love everything red, including all my room decorations, my boyfriend wearing red and my violin.

  • I have so many hobbies, that I experience choice overload whenever I have free time. (I made a picture of one of them: hula hooping)

  • I am addicted to watching YouTube tutorial videos. I do my daily exercising, music practice and everything else you can imagine… with YouTube!

  • I hitchhiked over 3000 km through Europe, partly on my own.
