Julianna Siedler is a young, talented marimbist that I had the opportunity to teach at the 2015 International Katarzyna Mycka Marimba Academy in Hanover, Germany. She displayed not only her deeper understanding of the contemporary music she was working on during her lessons at IKMMA but also her incredible confidence and communicative powers as a performer in concert. She is very disciplined and passionate about her art and has already established herself as an emerging contemporary marimba artist in her own community. Julianna certainly has a bright future ahead of her. Can’t wait to hear her next performance!
