“I have had the pleasure of working with Julie who provided a wonderfully nurturing experience for the children at our service (18 months – 5 years old). I would highly recommend her programs to children (and parents!) of all ages and abilities. Her gentle nature and extensive knowledge of early childhood development shines during these fun-filled sessions.
I very rarely write reviews because I must truly believe that they are worthwhile for the families in my care and I would highly recommend these classes for every age and stage without hesitation – in fact, I even recommend her classes to my family. From my observation the key is persistence – you might need to come a few times before your little one starts to join in but once they do you can see benefits -I just wish she was around when my daughter had her music sessions!”

About Sounds Like This

At Sounds Like This, our mission is to empower teachers and parents with the skills to bring music back into learning. Scientific research shows that music education and active music-making benefits a child’s developing and growing brain enormously.

My name is Julie Murray and after spending more than a decade as a music teacher, I decided to bring my knowledge to other educators as well as parents through Sounds Like This. I’m so happy you’re here and I can’t wait to make music together!
