Violin Lessons  - CURRENTLY FULL

All Grades

My name is Lauren Pulcipher, and I am excited to be teaching Suzuki violin lessons at St. Paul this year. I received my Master’s in violin performance and chamber music at the University of Michigan, and am a registered Suzuki Book 1 teacher. I am excited to teach the Suzuki method because I think it is a wonderful way to be introduced to the violin. Key components of the method include parent involvement and support, the opportunity to begin at a young age, peer learning in addition to individual lessons, and an emphasis on listening and repetition. I grew up a Suzuki student myself and I still use many of the skills I cultivated in my early education including problem-solving, collaboration, and appreciation for the act of learning.


Violin lessons are currently full. To be added to the waitlist, please email Lauren at: [email protected]


Piano Lessons - CURRENTLY FULL

Grades K - 8

My name is Julie Pierce and I'm excited to be able to offer piano lessons at St Paul this year. I am a long-time St Paul parent with my youngest child beginning eighth grade this year and I have an even longer history as a pianist, music teacher, choral director, and singer.  I received my degree in Music Education, with piano as my principle instrument, from the University of Michigan in 1992 and have been teaching piano, music directing, and singing ever since.


I love teaching students to love music through the piano. Rather than teaching piano simply from a set method or curriculum, I prefer to cater to the musical needs of each child.  I do like to use a standard method book or series as a guide, but I also draw from a wealth of musical resources outside the method books specific to each student's needs.  In addition, I incorporate music theory & history, ear training, and sight singing to fully round out the learning experience.


Learning the piano can be a great springboard to a lifetime experience with music! It would be a joy for me to be a part of that musical journey with your child.
