Calamine: Music with Julie

Story Time

All three classes at Cushman Scott Children's Center love Music with Julie. Her music sessions are age appropriate for our different classes from toddlers to preschoolers. Julie will also vary her song selections according to the seasons and happenings.

Julie brings her ukulele and other instruments. Sometimes the older children also have ukuleles to use!

We have enjoyed Julie and her music for the last two years at Cushman!

We have Julie Stepanek back for a third year of uke play-alongs to the Leverett Library in January. We love her! Julie is engaging and creative, and her repertoire of songs for just 2 chords on the ukulele is amazing! We open our uke programs to all ages and abilities and Julie makes it fun and doable for all. We highly recommend Julie!

Julie is professional and easy to work with.  We have had her "Ukulele Story Time" many times at our Library and they are fun, interactive and engaging.  She is able to work with children of all ages and abilities.  She comes prepared and presents a wonderful and complete story time experience.

Julie Stepanek has been a regular presenter at Storrs Library since her debut here wowed our patrons with her enthusiastic and encouraging teaching style. Julie’s broad smile and melodious voice encouraged all the participants to strum and have a rollicking sing-along! Her musical talent and easy-going temperament make her a delight to work with and a favorite of our patrons! Ukulele lessons are often requested and enthusiastically attended at Storrs Library, Julie is quite a jewel!

“We recently had Julie Stepanek visit our library for a ukulele program and it was phenomenal! I highly recommend her if you are looking for program ideas.”
