I’d like to introduce to you the Webmaster

Julie Levine


Julie began playing trumpet at El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills after being awestruck by the award winning Marching Band and was determined to join. After only one semester of playing she became an integral part of this group. She was the sole representative for El Camino in the L.A.U.S.D. All-City Marching Band for two years. She continued her musical journey at Cal State Northridge as a Music major. She played in the Marching Band and Wind Ensembles. It was at CSUN where she hit the pinnacle of her playing career performing the first movement of the Hummel Trumpet Concerto. It was also at CSUN that she got her first true taste of conducting. She had several opportunities to conduct the Marching Band and Wind Ensemble.

After obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies she continued to play at CSUN and in addition played in the Wind Ensemble at UCLA. After a break from music for a few years it was again in 1999 that she came back to playing where she joined the L.A. Valley College Wind Ensemble and has been a member ever since. At L.A. Valley College she continues to develop her conducting skills on a regular basis.

Julie also plays in many other community bands across the Los Angeles area.
Currently she is a member of the L.A. Sheriff’s Department Band and is the Assistant Director of the Burbank Community Band. www.Burbank-Band.org

Lastly Julie is a big supporter of playing LIVE TAPS for veteran memorials. Not known to most people that TAPS is rendered on a fake digital bugle upon honoring a veteran. A LIVE bugler can be obtained by going to www.BuglesAcrossAmerica.org or www.TapsForVeterans.org
