I’ll never have grandchildren, but I’ll always have students!  Nadia Boulanger, my role model, taught composition well into her 90’s.  This was one of my most fun-loving, wildly creative, seriously talented groups of students to date.  These guys are all award-winning composers and really cool people as well!

    Wonderful, Julie! I am sure your amazing students give you just as much joy as anyone who has grandchildren. The word ‘family’ encompasses a multitude of different facets. You must be very proud of these students as well as all the others, and the ones yet to come… who knows what they will achieve? Wouldn’t it be wonderful is we are still both sending our stories in to Voice.Club into our nineties?… Read more »

    You really do have a wonderful job Julie. I think I’ve fallen in love with the young Gabe, those words ‘Let’s analyze Mozart’ brought a big smile to my face as I’m guessing it did yours! Before retiring, I trained bankers and lawyers on the use of software packages… nowhere near as rewarding!

    How lovely Julie, to have such a great relationship with your students. You must be so proud to be an enabler, bringing forth their wonderful talent. I can tell I’d like one of them. Great choice of film!

    To have such a great connection and relationship with your student is very lovely. You are a good teacher for them, for sure. The achievement of your students is your achievement too. You should be proud of them, but I know your students are very proud to have a teacher like you, who molds them and motivates them to be the best.

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
