Julie Balk has been teaching band and piano at Christ Lutheran since about 2005.  After graduating from Winona State University, she started out teaching band and choir for 11 years at St. Croix Lutheran Academy.  In between, she managed at a Schmitt Music store and sold pianos and church organs.  Julie loves introducing young people to the joy and discipline of music.  It’s a great way to have a more rounded education, and it gives them ways to  participate more fully in church services.  It’s something they can enjoy throughout life.

Julie and her husband and daughter live in Inver Grove Heights with four cats. She also sings in Sweet Adelines (women’s barbershop acappella harmony), where she has been part of successful quartets and choruses for many years.
