Hi! My name is Julie Gensmer. I have been playing piano since I was 8 years old and always knew that music would be a major part of my life. My goal in teaching is to instill a love of music that will inspire and fulfill the student for the rest of their life. I attended Goshen College (many years ago!) and earned a Bachelors degree studying Piano Pedagogy with Marvin Blickenstaff.
I enjoy students of ALL ages and levels. I develop a bond with each student and find what approach works for each individual. My desire is to keep learning fun so playing the piano will be fun & last a lifetime!
I also try to play regularly myself so that I am working on a piece or two to polish and perform. Ask me to play for you if you want to hear something!
I have been teaching piano in the Sarasota area for over 30 years! I maintain a studio on my home property. I would love to talk with you about piano lessons for you or your child or grandchild. Any age can learn to play the piano!
We can schedule a meet and greet at my studio to see if we would be a good fit!
