Julia Perez was born and raised in Tomball, Texas in an incredibly musical family. At a young age, Julia was exposed to piano through private lessons, but eventually found her passion for performance with her discovery of viola. Once viola became her primary instrument, Julia soon found herself picking up several other string instruments such as violin, cello, bass, and ukulele. She then found joy in spreading her musical knowledge and began teaching lessons to violin and viola students. After several years sitting principal in the Tomball Memorial Symphony, Julia decided music was far more than a hobby and auditioned to study music further. Now Julia is a current Music Studies major at Texas State University with a concentration in viola. As a musician, Julia loves performing with the Texas State Symphony Orchestra, the Texas State Chamber Orchestra, and several small chamber groups. Julia is constantly seeking to improve herself as well as her students as musicians through hard work and dedication. Julia’s greatest joy in life is seeing her students progress to become fine musicians and sparking the passion for music in people's hearts.
