Julian

Julian was born and raised in Birmingham, England, Julian was first introduced to music at an early age through the sounds of classic rock bands such as Queen, Deep Purple and Dire Straits. He began playing guitar at the age of 13 during the height of American-pop punk popularity. After a short obsession with pick scrapes and power chords he discovered the technically diverse world of heavy metal.

In 2010, at the age of 21, he graduated from the Brighton Institute of Modern Music in UK with a Bachelors degree in Guitar Performance. During his time there, he was tutored by world renowned fusion/jazz guitarists such as Guthrie Govan, Paul Bielatowicz & Scott McGill. In 2011 he passed the Rock School Grade 8 certification.

Julian has spent the last 12 years playing in various groups around the UK, mainly specialising in progressive and technical metal, genres that fuse together elements of rock, blues, jazz, metal, acoustic, electronic and neo classical amongst others. He also takes a heavy in fluence from video game composers such as Koji Kondo and Nobuo Uematsu. Now residing in Tokyo, he hopes to continue his solo projects and embark on new musical endeavours.  The American Guitar Academy is proud to have him as part of our team!

At the American Guitar Academy, not only just learning songs, but I also got to strengthen my foundation and get to learn how to use various of techniques naturally.  It’s such a big difference between a player who gets the basics down compares to a player who doesn’t.

I can learn English and the guitar at the same time, so I think it’s like killing two birds with one stone. All the teachers have Individuality and it is interesting. Parent of Ritsu: 先生がみなさんフレンドリーで、楽しくレッスンを受けられています。クラシックだけではなく「コード」「ピック」も学ぶ事ができます。 レッスンの曜日、時間の選択肢が豊富で受講しやすいです。 振替もHPで確認、変更できるのでたいへん便利です。
