Since early success in international competitions and her soloist debut with the London Symphony Orchestra in 1997, Julie enjoys an extensive and varied musical life, giving solo recitals and chamber music concerts around Europe. Performances with the Achord Quintett, ensemble Villa Musica and Ensemble 94 have allowed her to develop a keen interest in the field of chamber music, where she has performed both as a flautist and as a pianist.
She was taught by Paul-Edmund Davies and Averil Williams at the Guildhall School of music and Drama in London where she was awarded the Guildhall School Prize for Woodwind, the Yamaha Prize for Woodwind and the Charles Leggat Prize for Flute. She later continued her studies in Germany with Jean-Claude Gerard and Sir James Galway. Ms. Stewart-Lafin gives masterclasses around Europe allowing her to pass her experience on to the next generation.
