Hi, I'm Julie Capps, accompanist for the First United Methodist Church. 

I grew up in Maysville and attended Missouri Western State College. I moved to Texas in 1980 and graduated from the University of Texas.  I began her teaching career in Odessa, TX at a Visual and Performing Art School, where I taught strings, choir and band for nine years.  

While in Texas, I took over the band at San Jacinto Junior High in Midland, the only woman band director in many a mile in West Texas.  There, my band played for George W. Bush, an alumni of SJ.  

I moved back to MO in 1995 to get closer to family and taught Band at Bolivar for two years, followed by a position at Santa Fe RX, where I taught general music, choir and band for nineteen years. 

I'm recently retired, finishing my thirty-six year teaching career in Grant City as the band and choir director at Worth County R3.  I have a Master's in Flute Performance. I've been published several times, and have been a performer and presenter at MMEA several times.   I'm a member of MMEA, MBA, NAFME, NEA, MNEA, MWBDA, WBDI and Phi Beta Mu. I'm a charter member of Missouri Women Band Directors’ Association and am currently serving as the Past President. I also served as the Industrial Membership Chair on the Executive Board for the Women Band Directors International, as well as the representative for Missouri. 

I won Missouri Teacher of the Year Award for 2009, and hold an honorary Chapter Degree from the Santa Fe FFA.  I have been a presenter for several professional organizations, adjudicates music festivals in Missouri and Kansas, have been a performer and conductor for the Lexington Wind Ensemble, flutist in the Northwinds Symphonic Band and am the piccolo player in the Cameron Municipal Band. I also began recently playing as a member of "Kammermusik,” a chamber music ensemble. I'm listed in the 2005/2006 book of outstanding American teachers, nominated by one of my band students. 

I have conducted and performed with Church Choirs, Children’s Choirs and hand bell choirs, as well as serving as pianist, most recently as the organist at Christ Episcopal Church in Lexington, MO.

I have three sons:  Tommy, Max and Joshua, who all love to play music, and one adorable granddaughter, Nova.  

I'm an avid reader and love animals and flowers.
