After completing a Bachelor’s degree in music education from Northland International University, a small college located in Northern Wisconsin, Julie Sherman began her musical teaching career in 2001 on the beautiful island of Oahu. From there, she had opportunities to teach in both Virginia and North Carolina before moving to Michigan.
Her teaching background includes: general music appreciation classes, chorus, band, hand chimes, and theatre; she’s also taught private instruction in piano, voice, and beginning violin. Her varied teaching experiences have given her the chance to work with students of all ages, interests, and abilities – inspiring elementary children through an Orff approach to learning, preparing high school choirs for state competitions, coaching vocal students for college auditions, introducing beginning students to a life-long relationship with music, and helping adults gain confidence to sing in church choirs.
While living in North Carolina, she was an active member of the Cumberland Oratorio Singers and the Cross Creek Chorale, often performing as a featured soloist. Since moving to Michigan in 2015, her most recent performance was singing at the Jackson Police Department’s Annual Memorial event.
