Julian is teacher and professional pianist having a passion for music and the piano that is , to the very amateur pianist, a very rare thing. Being taught by a pianist of this standard is quite remarkable, he often demonstrates how to play a piece and it's like listening to a Brendal or an Ashkenazi. This is not music lessons as you know it but a tour de force of the piano and how the professionals do it.
"No matter your standard you will enjoy learning; even those dreary early pieces will be brought to life."

Julian is a fantastic teacher and has helped me so much with my Diploma pieces. His approach has encouraged me to think beyond the notes on the page and to appreciate different styles. I'm SO happy with my progress since having lessons with Julian. More...
