Julie Lindower is a Newborn Intensive Care doctor at University of Iowa Children's Hospital, and is studying guitar and ukulele with Chris Eck in Coralville.
Julie's formal musical instruction began at age seven with the piano, followed by violin, which she continued to study through college. She enjoyed singing in a variety of choirs during and after high school. As an adult, Julie is partial to saxophone, guitar, ukulele, and bass guitar. The guitar is both the most versatile and most difficult instrument for her to attempt to master. She has learned a great deal from Chris, who she describes as "an intuitive, skilled, and above all, patient teacher!".
Besides working and playing music, Julie enjoys being with her husband Paul and two daughters, Anna and Sara. She has two sweet horses that provide a nice break from her life indoors. She also likes container gardening and collecting antiques, especially American Art Pottery.
She is grateful to Chris and West Music for helping her learn something new each and every week.
Julie's teacher Chris Eck remarks, "Working with Julie is always fun and engaging! She is a smart musician and always seeking to understand her instruments. Julie has a way of boiling down lessons to what is important for her practical path of improvement, so she is always making steady progress through organized application of her talent. Julie also studied saxophone with Saul Lubaroff and has been featured with the "Doctors in Concert" event to benefit the University of Iowa Children's Hospital, among other musical collaborations in the community."
