"I had the opportunity of having Ms. Julie accompany me on piano at a cocktail party

here in the St. Louis area. I enjoyed Julie's enthusiasm, her professionalism, and her

excellent work ethic. It was indeed a pleasure to work with her and I wish her all the best as

she continues along on her musical journey."





"Julie Heck put on one ‘heck’ of a show at the grand opening of Reliance Bank’s loan production office here at Justine PETERSEN.  She played something for everyone, complete with a smile.  We will definitely be inviting Julie back sometime soon."




"If you are fortunate enough to have Julie Heck as your personal piano teacher and coach you are in for a treat. Not only does she bring joy and fun to every lesson but also tremendous professionalism and focus so you may just find that you learned much more than you thought. She is capable of teaching music theory, sight reading or free accompaniment, pretty much anything you desire to learn on the piano. I wanted all of the above and am most grateful to have found a teacher of her caliber, skill set, and spirit."





“Julie is an amazing piano teacher!! Her knowledge and methods of teaching the piano make it very simple to learn, and her passion for music motivates you to do your best and keep growing as a musician. 





"I played the piano through high school. Fourteen years later, my new year’s resolution was to start playing once again. Enter Julie Heck. I have taken piano lessons with Julie for almost a year. Julie’s teaching technique makes every lesson fun and interesting. She has a knack for inspiring you to challenge yourself. My lessons with Julie have become a highlight of my week. Her musical knowledge is impressive, as is her commitment to her talent. Whether she is floating through Clair de Lune, pounding out a unique variation of Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb, or entertaining the audience with an original, Julie’s passion for music is evident and inevitably contagious to those around her!”





"As an adult student, I have found Julie Heck to be very supportive of my own goals with the piano. She is a talented musician and a good teacher. I highly recommend her to anyone considering taking piano lessons."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     



"Julie is the one of the most engaged, enthusiastic accompanists I have ever worked with. She not only comes prepared and makes sure our ensemble sounds good, but also helps me improve as a solo player. Rehearsals are always fun and relaxing, an epitome of a sometimes overlooked, but vital, component of music making: connecting with all the brilliant, passionate people around us. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone—both the process of working with her and the finished product are lovely."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        




"I have been fortunate enough to not only perform with Julie but also learn from her. She was an accompanist during my first year at Saint Louis University and she always had suggestions to improve a performance. Recently, she invited me to perform with her at her concert at The Tavern of Fine Arts and not only did she do a stellar job but I thoroughly enjoyed performing with her again. Julie Heck is phenomenal person to work with from her personality to her talent."





"Julie played all of the ceremony music for our outdoor wedding, and it sounded beautiful both in person and on our video! She gave us ideas on common classical wedding songs but was flexible enough to learn whatever we chose. She attended the rehearsal and brought her keyboard, even though it was an hour's drive. She is great to work with and was kind enough to accept our invitations to the rehearsal and reception dinners. Julie is a very sweet person and talented musician! We were lucky to find her for our ceremony!"





"Julie is the best!! I loved working with her. She played at my wedding while guests were arriving and waiting for the wedding ceremony to begin. She also coordinated with a guitarist for a beautiful rendition of the song I walked down the aisle to. As a bride, I had a lot of things going on and I gave her complete control of the music. She exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Live music definitely adds a special touch to the ceremony and I’m glad I had her to help me since I know very little about music. I am very impressed by Julie and would recommend her to everyone!!"
