My name is Julie Wilson and I have been teaching music for 25 years. Seventeen of those years I have been at Humann Elementary. Throughout my years of teaching I have taught band grades 5-12 and vocal music grades K-6, as well as preschool and ELL music classes. Prior to coming to Lincoln I taught in Columbus, Nebraska and Mesa, Arizona. I graduated from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln in 1993 with a Bachelors in Music Education. Go Big Red! While at the university I performed with the UNL Marching Band, Women’s Chorale, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band and Oratorio. I received my Masters Degree from Northern Arizona University in 1997. I am also certified level II in Orff-Schulwerk.
I am very excited to share my love of music and performance with all of the students at Humann Elementary. I strive to teach students not just singing and musicianship but also to foster enjoyment in music, promote self-expression and confidence, teach discipline and ignite a passion for music for a lifetime. I also know that music is beneficial in motor coordination and brain development, and that the skills learned in music translate to many other areas of life.
My husband of 24 years is in the military and we have 3 children together. We enjoy spending time with our family and following our children to their many activities. I enjoy running to keep in shape and enjoy participating in some of our local races. I love to travel and explore new places. I can’t wait until my next adventure.
