About Julie Murray:

Julie Murray is a highly experienced-brain obsessed music teacher and founder of Sounds Like This. She believes music making is for all people (not JUST the talented few) and can make lives richer, brains kinder and hearts fuller. Scientific research shows that music education and active music-making benefits a child’s developing brain enormously as does intergenerational connection, Sounds Like This connects these dots. Julie Murray specialises in early developmental music making, as this is when the human brain grows the most, is the most malleable and daily experiences are most impactful. She adores working with children, they are such creative and explorative wonders! 

Sounds Like This is on a mission to empower teachers and parents with the skills to bring music back into everyday learning. You ARE capable and never too old to start!

Julie began formal music lessons on the flute at age eight, after her parents could no longer ignore my relentless recorder playing. Little did they know that they would soon be moving the couch to make way for her piano. Julie was awarded her Bachelor of Music from the Melba Conservatorium, and was the John Tallis Bursary Scholar. She's had the privilege of performing on the world’s stage as a flutist and the joy of large and small ensemble and solo work within Australia. She began offering private music tuition in 2003 and has since studied Kodály (pronounced Co-Die) based music programs and philosophy specifically for young children and early learning.

To deliver Kodály and neurologically informed early learning experiences Julie has been accredited as a First Steps in Music and Conversational Solfege teacher through the acclaimed Feierabend Association for Music Education, and had the inspiring experience of learning from Dr John Feierabend himself.

Personally, she loves mini outdoor adventures, making home movies, savouring strong coffee, ocean swimming, spontaneous music making, dancing in the kitchen, growing food on her suburban block and watching her own two children grow.
