Clarinet and Saxophone Tuition

Photos licensed by Ellen Van Deelen Welcome to Julies Music Studio, clarinet and saxophone tuition in the lower mainland of B.C.
Here you will find information on clarinet and saxophone lessons at my school and private studios in
West Vancouver and North Vancouver

My name is Julie Begg and I have been performing professionally and teaching the clarinet and saxophone for over 25 years. I tutor clarinet, bass clarinet, alto clarinet plus soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones to students from all over the lower mainland, including North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Richmond and Vancouver.

I am passionate about teaching music and enjoy a busy studio of approximately 55 students per week. I currently teach at 3 different locations: Handsworth Secondary School in North Vancouver,  Seycove Secondary School in North Vancouver
and at the Silk Purse Gallery in West Vancouver.

I teach both elementary and secondary school students, in addition to adult learners, from absolute beginners to advanced. Whether you are looking for regular weekly lessons, brush-ups, drop-ins or learn-with-a-friend, I will try my best to accommodate you.

For band directors, I am an experienced and prepared clinician and enjoy working with groups of clarinet and saxophone players focusing on general or specific areas of technique, school band and chamber music. I hope that you will find all of the information on this website useful and encourage you to contact me with any questions.

August News

With only a few weeks left of summer I have started to get my studio organized and there are a few changes this year.

Unfortunately, I have closed my Burnaby location and will only be teaching on the North Shore at 3 different locations: Handsworth and Seycove Secondary Schools plus the Silk Purse Gallery in West Vancouver (Aug 15 update: Silk Purse fully booked from 3 - 9 ).

Lessons will begin on Monday, September 8th.

On Monday August 11th, I will begin taking reservations for the new school year. Please visit the Lesson Information page (under Teaching Info) for details on days, times and locations.

Look forward to seeing you all soon :)
