Meet Our Teachers
Julie Chambers of Chambers Music Studio, is our studio owner, lead teacher, website designer, chief marketing expert, administrative manager, and more. I guess that’s what happens when you run a small business. She’s enjoying this journey and is looking forward to the next step.
How it all started
Music lessons are so important for creative thinking, brain development, emotional well-being, language acquisition, and more, but private lessons can be isolating. Our mission is to bring people together through music. We want to create a community space where students and families can gather together to enjoy company, music lessons, and friendship.

A Work In Progress
Don and Jeff from Compton Construction have been excellent to work with. If there’s a problem, I simply ask what else could we do. The team at Compton Construction and Valerie Halas, put their heads together and always figure out an incredible solution. It’s amazing to witness
We’re amazed at the current progress and continued professionalism of Compton Construction. I would be remiss if I didn’t give Valerie Halas a major shout-out for all her hard work with this project. Check out her website. You’ll be seeing more about her coming up!
I met Valerie through the Bexley Moms group, our kids are about the same age, and we did Zumbini with Nurit together. She helped me determine which space would work for our music studio needs, had countless meetings and conversations with me about what we would need and want at the studio, coordinated all the consultants, triple checked every document, provided checklists for me, and kept everything together. I’m still amazed and thankful for the opportunity to work with her. I’m looking forward to working on the rest of this project with her.
Today we had an excellent meeting regarding our current construction timeline. These are photos of our acoustical clips. The clips absorb sound, preventing transmission through walls. These will prevent any sound transmission between lesson rooms and outside the studio, so students can have a focused lesson without distractions. If you’re interested, fill out our intake form.
Let's Get Started
Nikki Tvarok Zvonek
Nikki Tvarok Zvonek is a geotechnical engineer. A geotechnical engineer studies soil to evaluate its suitability for foundations. Valerie and I know her from our Bexley Moms group. She came 7 months pregnant on a Sunday afternoon to check out our soil in our plumbing dig.
My daughter helped me paint, sand, wax, and distress my childhood dresser. We’ll be using this as a changing table in the music studio bathroom.
After a few months of getting things settled, I finally have time to update the photos of the finished product. I can’t believe the finished product. Thank you to everyone involved.
When I began teaching in 2008, I never dreamed that I would one day be opening a community music school. I did, however, know that I had fallen in love with this little town of Bexley. Four years at Capital University and I knew I wanted to get back here one day. After multiple cities and countries, I made it back to Bexley in 2013 to start my own private music studio from our home. This communities overwhelming support for the arts provided a successful private studio for many years. Of course, I noticed a problem. Private lessons can be isolating. Students go to the teacher or the teacher goes to the student, but rarely do students and families have much opportunity for community interaction. I began this journey 2 years ago to open this community music school with busy families in mind. I wanted to create a space where people were excited and overjoyed to enter, where people never wanted to leave, and where people could connect with community members. We are looking forward to opening our cafe next year to provide even more convenience for families. At least on music lesson days, you know you can grab dinner at the studio for the family. One less thing to worry about.
For all their hard work raising a strong willed musician and for stepping in with last minute financing.
For their last minute financing assistance. With Covid grants everywhere, the banks just weren’t lending and these people took an amazing risk on us, for which I’m truly grateful.
For everything they’ve taught me.
For every unpaid position he has filled at the studio including but not limited to, handy man, technology officer, mover, painter, personal assistant and more.
For introducing me to the amazing architect. I really didn’t know what to do or how to do it, just that I needed to. Valerie and I began this project before and after Zumbini classes at Piccadilly with Zumbini with Nurit. If it hadn’t been for that class and this group, I would not have met Valerie.
For all the work she did for this project. She made it so easy for me. She discovered my dream and vision and turned it into an amazing space with so much functionality. I highly recommend her for all future projects around your house.
I never knew how much work went into a complete demo and renovation. It was an educational experience for sure. I’m so happy with the final product.
For their donation of items for our raffle today.
I’m so happy to have an amazing team of teachers by my side. I truly would not be able to do with project without them.
Dedicated students and families are the foundation of the community music school. You’re amazing at managing the to do list of life while also getting to lessons and practicing. I’m so glad to have you apart of this community music school.
