Julia Connor

Violin, Viola Teacher

Julia Connor

Julia Connor fell in love with the violin at an early age and spent several years wandering around the house playing air violin until her parents finally took the hint and signed her up for lessons.  She has since developed a wide-ranging musical voice, performing everything from baroque music on period instruments to fiddle music from Ireland to new works by living composers.  Julia is a founding member of both the violin and piano duo Room to Spare, which writes and performs original groove based new music, and of the Berwick Fiddle Consort, an early music ensemble which performs historical folk music from the British Isles on period instruments.

Julia teaches orchestra, composition, and violin at the Winsor School in Boston and maintains a private studio in Roslindale, MA. She has also taught at the New England Conservatory Prep School, the Panama Jazz Festival, and Camp Encore-Coda (Sweden, ME).
