TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
I held my Annual Livery Dinner at Barber-Surgeons’ Hall and was let down unavoidably at the last minute by my musician. Julian was recommended to me by a mutual acquaintance, and he stepped in to help me out with very little notice.
Julian’s playing was exquisite, and he very quickly picked up the Company Anthem which he played brilliantly for us. He also played two wonderfully appropriate pieces of music during the interlude, plus the Sung Grace and National Anthem. There was no need to brief Julian in any depth as he has played for several Livery Companies and therefore knew exactly what was needed of him.
Julian’s playing and professionalism was much appreciated by my guests, and I have received many compliments about his music from fellow Liverymen and guests alike. I have no hesitation in recommending Julian very highly for any similar event, in the knowledge that he will provide an excellent service.

Julian provided the music for our Golden Wedding celebrations. Sensitive and responsive, he performed engagingly to a diverse audience. Our decision to let him choose the music was the right one. The evening sparkled.

Julian not only has great musical ability but also a deep understanding in the traditions of Livery Companies. When I was let down and found that I had no pianist for a dinner Julian was able to step in at the last moment to provide the National Anthem, Sung Grace, background music, entrance and exit marches. I owe him a great debt for this and the most important thing is no one noticed the change!

Julian played the organ at my wedding a few years ago and did a first-class job. I highly recommend his services because he is not only highly skilled but also friendly, reliable and professional. If you need a pianist or organist, give Julian a call! You won’t be disappointed.
