Julia Stewart started learning the violin at the age of 4 and grew up in a family of musicians. Taught by her father until she was 16, she subsequently learnt with Detlef Hahn (Guildhall), Ilan Gronich (Berlin), Felix Andrievsky (Royal College) and Ricardo Ricci (Italy) before joining English National Opera.  

Throughout her busy freelance career with the Royal Opera house, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and BBC concert orchestra, Julia has also been a member of a successful string quartet enjoying regular performances and recordings to critical acclaim.  

Teaching is close to her heart and particularly enjoys coaching string ensembles and giving masterclasses to young musicians.  

Over the past 35 years of nurturing young talent, Julia has gained enormous insight into creating the best learning environment for young students and guiding their musical journey with enthusiasm and great success.
