Julian is visiting Auckland for limited time and invites you to take part in a variety of events for a deepening exploration of music in relation to the world and the human being. Originally from the UK, Julian studied at the Royal College of Music, with the BBC Training Orchestra and Emerson College, where he was later responsible for music for 12 years. He came to NZ and Australia in 1982 as part of his sabbatical year before becoming a regional musician in Norway until 1988. He now lives in the Hawke's Bay, teaching locally and working with the Diploma in Rudolf Steiner Education students at Taruna College.
