About Julian Saphir


Saphir Inspires is an exciting project founded by concert pianist Julian Saphir.

Through his piano workshops and masterclasses in schools around the country, Julian hopes to encourage young people to listen and play classical music without preconceptions.

Julian’s vibrant and hugely entertaining presentations make a Saphir Inspires event a must-have event for schools and colleges. World class performances of the finest piano music ever composed, alongside a fun and interactive approach, inspire students to take a fresh look at the role classical music can play in their lives.

Julian also connects with musicians and pianists through the full range of Saphir Inspires services. His boundless enthusiasm and dedication to music makes Julian the ideal teacher and mentor to keen adult students of all abilities.

He is also a refreshingly constructive and fair adjudicator for the often precarious world of competitive music.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Julian Saphir to discuss your musical event or book him for a performance or masterclass.
