  • Testimonials

    Andrew Tapsill, London.

    "Just to say, thanks for your help with Ableton, having previously learned a little and stalled somewhat, your depth of knowledge and patience whilst explaining everything to me (even the things I thought I previously knew), coupled with your obvious passion for what you do have re-energised me - I now feel I have a base of knowledge and techniques to take forward with me for future projects.."

    Jack Rhodes, London

    "Julian is an experienced and professional teacher who knows how to get the best out of you, and his success within the industry speaks for itself; you would struggle to find somebody who you can sit one on one with, that is as proficient and as well versed as he is. His advice and lessons really made all the difference."

    Oli Turner aka Oli T, Surrey, England

    "Julian had me beat mixing vinyl in no time at all. Now my mixtapes are up on Soundcloud and getting plays from listeners around the world"

    Christian Homan, Mi House Radio, Dublin
