About

Hi, my name’s Julian Bradley. I’m a jazz pianist from the UK, with a masters degree in music.

At age 17, I attended a Wynton Marsalis concert - this was my first introduction to jazz and I’ll never forget the experience…

I remember the piano player in particular - an African-American musician in his twenties, wearing a baggy flannel shirt, blue jeans and workman boots...

He had a pencil behind his ear which he used to scribble notes above his sheet music, while he tried out different chord voicings at the piano...

The chords he was playing sounded instantly fascinating to me - like nothing I’d ever heard before - and I remained mesmerized by the music throughout the whole concert.

I was so inspired by the experience that I committed myself to learning jazz piano, and the next day I began searching for information:

I searched the internet for advice - but the information was disorganized and scattered across hundreds of websites...

I purchased books online - but when the books arrived in the mail, I soon realized that they were simplified for beginners...

After months of struggling on my own and almost giving up - I finally discovered a jazz piano teacher...

I made the one-hour trek to his house, and within 5 minutes of sitting down at the piano I knew that this was exactly what I needed....

Now I had someone who could answer my jazz questions and fill in the missing gaps to my knowledge.

I met with my teacher regularly - snatching up every available teaching slot in his schedule - and we focused on one thing at a time.

I got answers to all of my questions, I stopped struggling, and I raced ahead with my jazz piano learning.

It’s now more than 15 years since the Wynton Marsalis concert that sparked my passion for jazz...

I've acheived my goal - and can now create the authentic jazz sound that I was after.

Now I want to help you to do the same thing...

No matter how old you are, what country you’re from, or whether or not you had ‘formal training’…

My goal is to provide you with the clearest lessons in jazz piano - delivered in a calm and down-to-earth style.

Where should I start?
