Skills and expertise
Juliet believes her time as a young student in Nelson has had a significant influence on her approach to teaching. She encourages her students to make the most of opportunities to participate in student ensembles and concerts, to support and inspire one another and to positively tackle challenges. She wishes to give her students the same sound musical and technical foundation that she was given.
