My name is Julie Clark. In 1987, together with Linda Goodman, I opened the Creative Arts Studio, now known as CAST Preschool and Childcare Center – an academy for early learning that offers children the opportunity to grow and learn in a creative environment. Linda and I have produced music for children under the name “Jam Sandwich” and, in 1990, won a Parent’s Choice Award for one of our recordings.
In 2003, I joined a women’s a cappella group directed by Jan Gregory – Femina Melodia – and began writing SSA choral music for the group. At the same time I started my love affair with the djembe and drum with both the Femina Melodia Drummers and a unique women’s drumming group, The Offbeats.
Over the years, I have developed a portfolio of work which includes women’s choral pieces, drum “songs” and children’s music as well as a children’s drumming curriculum which I call, Jungle Rhythms.
In an effort to share my “joyful noise” with the world, I offer up my music and my body of work. Please feel free to download anything you find on this site. If you choose to perform any of it, please cite me and send me an email so that I can share your enthusiasm.
