Julie Lyonn Lieberman left the straight and narrow performance and teaching path many decades ago. She has produced concerts, radio programs for National Public Radio and local stations, written and published books, composed string orchestra scores, composed for and performed with dance and theatre companies, and helped pioneer the eclectic styles movement in string education as well as the playing healthy movement. Across the decades, she has amassed numerous skills that cross the divide between mental organization, emotional and psychological scripts, and practical issues like funding or lack of support from colleagues. She believes that everyone can create the things that are important to them regardless of the tools they start out with.
