Julian is an active teacher who as well as having private students teaches at the jazz School at RHACC.

The critic Sammy Stein wrote for Jazz in Europe; 
" Julian Costello is a sax lyricist, telling his stories of life’s ups and downs with perfect alteration of tone to impart strength, humour and even frailty.

This is a great album, strong, tenacious in its quality and simply makes a great listen"

Julian lives with his family in SW London where he eats far too much Italian food and drinks French red wine.
