Julian Costales

Julian Costales, is a highly dedicated and passionate music enthusiast
 with an eagerness to channel their deep love for music into a rewarding pursuit. Helping students achieve their goals and unlock their full potential in what their students want to learn, they understand the frustrations of self-teaching and the common hurdles a musician will find while studying an instrument. Starting at the age of 12 studying online for music production and getting their hands on any music theory knowledge, spending hours piecing information together, and then joining their first performance class at Strawberry Crest Highschool at 14 taking a Guitar and Piano class, they fell in love with the instruments and developed a deep gratitude for live performance on top of their love of electronic production. 

Since attending Hillsborough Community College in the spring of 2023 for Music Performance in Guitar. They have played every semester as part of their guitar ensemble and solo performances, joining HCC’s choir and singing with the University of Tampa's choir and at Disney's Candlelight. He wanted to pursue more performance outside of school playing with a jazz band and surrounding themselves in musicianship in the local Tampa area. They can teach a student as young as school age to an individual wanting to pick up an instrument for the first time in their lives and tailor their lessons to the goals of a student. As some choose musicianship as a relaxer, some choose it as a profession, and others choose it as a way to interact with others in their world. 

Julian is understanding of all walks of life and understands that on top of the hours of honing a craft physically the passion for it must be just as honed. Able to integrate their teaching knowledge with those goals in mind on the instruments he has explored his passionate profession including Guitar, Piano, Ukulele, and Electric Bass. Julian still believes that the rigors of learning should be an enjoyable yet stimulating journey. Their teaching philosophy is grounded in fostering a supportive and encouraging atmosphere where students are inspired to explore and excel with their love for music in mind, setting them up with the tools to pursue their passion with the same vigor that he has.
