Jules Addison began his musical career at Cranleigh School.  Whilst studying music to A Level, Jules also had lessons on the organ and piano under the guidance of the eminent jazz pianist David Rees-Williams.   At Cranleigh, Jules was involved with the Chapel Choir, The Barbershop Octet, the School orchestra, A Glenn Miller style ‘Big Band’ and the school Chamber Orchestra as well as playing the organ for daily chapel services.

Jules went on to study music at Royal Holloway, University of London where he continued his organ tuition with Jeremy Filsell.   Jules often played the organ for chapel services as well as singing in both the Chapel Choir and Scola Cantorum. 

After graduating in 1996, Jules embarked on a career in the music industry focussing on teaching and music production.  From this time forward, choirs and choral music became very important influences on Jules’ career.   He has a passion for teaching music and particularly for helping others to make music together.

In 2004, Jules set up 4 Part Music to offer professional mobile recording services to choirs and schools across the UK.   The business continued to grow until 2019 when the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown forced a new direction and change of career.

Jules is now one half of JAM Duo, a Cello and Piano Duo set up with his partner Anne-Marie Humphries in May 2020.  Since then the Duo has been incredibly successful and Jules would say is without doubt the highlight of his musical career to date.   Jules and Anne-Marie now regularly travel around the UK playing at weddings and events.

As well as JAM Duo, Jules and Anne-Marie are also the Music Team for Tetbury Community Choir. When they are not out and about making music they will usually be found at home in the Cotswolds in their recording studio making new tracks for their Duo.  And when all the work is done, they will either be drinking gin or asleep!
