JOB: Private music teacher/ Freelance musician
TALENT: Saxophone player
BACKGROUND: Julian has been playing the tenor sax since he was 14. He had a couple of lessons at school to learn the basics before teaching himself from there. He is currently a saxophone and clarinet teacher although he used to also teach the bassoon. He teaches every weekend. He plays crossover classical music similar to Il Divo.
He has been working for years to become successful and has performed at pubs and restaurants in and around Birmingham. He would love to play larger arenas including theatres, and wants to be the centre of attention where everyone is focused on him.
When he plays in restaurants due to the hustle and noise Julian feels he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. He started playing on a regular saxophone and has progressed to a tenor sax over the past 15 years. He decided to play the tenor sax as it’s a unique instrument. His main influence is Kenny G and would love to be as well known.
