'The patience Julian has coupled with determination to get Yza to hit certain notes, warmed me to him, but his amiable disposition is what really won me over at the end. There are many good teachers out there but seldom do we come across great ones. You know you have found a great one when the student enjoys attending their lessons. Calm, funny and fair are some of the words Yza uses when she talks about Julian. Regardless how far Yza goes with her music, it is the enjoyment she attains from her endeavour that matters the most. Credits to Julian for making learning fun and enjoyable. Julian is a great teacher. Highly recommended.'

'Julian taught my son trumpet for just over a year. He was good at diagnosing where my son was struggling with a piece of music and patiently helping him work through the issue to improve his performance. He also made it a priority to ensure my son could play well with others, either through live duets or with tracks of music; effectively using technology while engaging my young teen.'

Jake Borden

'Julian Marchant taught my son the trumpet for eight months. Given Julian is a exceptional trumpeter himself, this was a fantastic start and a privilege to have him working along side my son. I found Julian to be warm, welcoming and approachable. He has high standards and aims for results. Highly recommend Julian as a trumpet tutor of all levels. '
