Information About Julian - Blackburn teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Julian:
Julian offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I teach for formal study or just for pleasure. 1:1 in Lancashire and Online to the World.
I'm particularly interested in 'local' music. i.e. traditional music from Northwest England.
I lead the Palatine Fiddlers, a community group workshop that meets weekly in term times. We are currently meeting on-line to comply with Covid regulations but hope to meet face to face again in May.
I have been teaching violin/fiddle since graduating in 2007 and have knowledge of many musical genres but I specialise in folk & traditional music.
I have experience teaching all ages and abilities. either 1:1, in groups and workshops, on-line, in schools and the community and I'm DBS checked.
I teach folk & traditional music using a wide ranging repertoire and styles from the UK and Ireland but I'm equally at home with music from North America, Western Europe including Scandinavia and Australia.
Lessons with me can be a great introduction to traditional fiddle music for those who already play the violin but who have a desire to explore or gain a greater understanding of why traditional music is growing fast in popularity.
Or, if you used to play violin, perhaps as a child, here’s the opportunity to re-kindle that experience but with a refreshing, indigenous and infectious repertoire.
When learning for pleasure I often teach by ear or with notation as an aid memoire, so the ability to read music is not critical.
For formal study I follow the grading system of ABRSM and Trinity College (for Scottish Traditional Fiddle) with local assessment.
I teach primarily at my home either 1:1 or online using Skype but I am also willing to travel a reasonable distance for £0.45 per mile.
Bring a friend or partner with you for the same price. I offer a discount for block bookings.
