I took voice lessons with Julian for over a year. He took me from zero experience to actually being comfortable and confident with my voice in a very short time. I found him to be an excellent mentor - knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and good at explaining concepts. My lessons were a high point of each week - I had a ton of fun and I absolutely recommend him as a teacher.Oct 27, 2020
Julian is an extremely talented teacher who can help you in pretty much any area you would like to work in. He really gets to know his students so they can learn as best as possible. Julian and I have gone over a wide range of concepts and therefore my playing ability has drastically improved. He knows what he’s doing, he’s good at teaching the lessons, and he’s cool to be around!Oct 15, 2020
I think Julian has opened up a whole new world of Jazz drumming for me! Without him I probably wouldn’t know how to play salsa music and the 3/2, 2/3, and rumba clave. Super nice, guy and I always end up leaving the lesson with a smile on my face. When I started with him I was also thinking of another drum teacher that a friend from school recommended but when I stepped into my first lesson it was love at first sight. lol. Julian proved to be a very good drum teacher over time and taught me lessons in drums that I will remember for the rest of my life. For this I am extremely grateful.Oct 15, 2020
My son really enjoys piano lessons with Julian. Julian makes it fun and educational. Julian is very organized, professional and great at communicating with us regarding any scheduling issues and reminders.Oct 15, 2020
My 10 year old son has worked with the talented Julian Allen for 18 months. We started with voice lessons and then added piano. Julian is so knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging... all qualities that make him a stellar music teacher! We would highly recommend Julian Allen!!!Oct 14, 2020
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I can do sliding scale . I can do in-person (safely socially-distanced), or online. Pricing can vary depending on distance, time, and other variables.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?At first I love to get a sense of a client's past experience, goals, questions, and so on. I direct my intention in our work based on this information. If it is a lesson , I will aim to incorporate some mixture of technique and fundamentals, written and aural theory, grooves, vocabulary, learning and playing songs, music history, listening, recording, arranging, and production techniques, music business, learning and playing songs jamming, and general creative exploration. If I am working on songwriting or production with a client , I will listen to the client’s goals, and contribute to, guide, energize, or reinforce their work along the way to achieving the creation, process, or progress they are seeking. I believe that making music should feel great— so I prioritize enjoyment, playfulness, freedom, and exploration throughout the process of fulfillment of growth. But I gladly adjust my approach to when a client wishes to engage with a disciplined or efficient mentality.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BFA in Music (Jazz & Contemplative Studies) from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Performing: I have been making music my whole life, and performing professionally since the age of 14. I have played on hundreds of recordings, thousands of projects, and toured several countries and around the USA. Teaching: I have taught at 3 private Music schools, two arts summer camps, as well as out of my own private studio . I have been a guest speaker at my Alma Mater. I have taught group lessons in percussion, songwriting, Pop/Rock, Jazz, creative process, and Music business. At most points in my teaching career, I have worked with up to 60 students in a week .
