At school, Jules was involved with the Chapel Choir, The Barbershop Octet, the School orchestra, A Glenn Miller style ‘Big Band’ whilst also taking part in a number of Chamber ensembles. Jules worked with the local village Choral Society and, when not singing in the choir, played the organ at school for the majority of chapel services.
Jules went on to study music at Royal Holloway, University of London where he continued his organ studies 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 continues to grow and he is often travelling around the UK to record choirs, schools and brass bands.
Alongside his recording business, Jules now has a thriving teaching business working both from his home studio as well as travelling to pupils in the local area.
