Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Julie Ogle
My name is Julie Ogle. Music has been a part of my whole life, thanks to a great musical education provided by the public school system. I was raised outside of Richmond, Virginia and started playing trumpet when I was eleven years old. I started teaching private lessons at age sixteen and realized then how much I enjoyed sharing my love of music with children. I eventually earned three degrees in music at Centre College in Kentucky, The Conservatory of Amsterdam in The Netherlands, and Christopher Newport University in Virginia.
Musical highlights for me have included playing trumpet for Wynton Marsalis, making a living playing in an oompah band, gigging with various orchestras around Holland, premiering contemporary music, and touring on the natural trumpet in authentic baroque musical ensembles around Europe.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, being in nature, biking around town with my dog Russell, and cooking and eating delicious vegetarian food.
I taught general music for three years in Newport News, Virginia before I moved to Decatur. This is my fourth year teaching general music and band at F.AVE!
