6-8 General Music and 6th Grade Choir


My name is Julie Holly, and I am thrilled to join the staff at James Hart School as teacher of General Music, grades 6-8, and director of the 6th Grade Choir! My husband and I moved to Homewood 13 years ago so our 4 beautiful daughters could attend Homewood School District 153 schools and HF High School. I have experience teaching General Music, Band, Choir, Handbells, and Piano. I look forward to an incredible year sharing my love of music with my students!
