Susan taught at LMH for 44 years before retiring in 2016 and still plays an active role in College life.
Julian came to music relatively late. After University, he worked for a management consultancy firm in the City for a number of years, before enrolling in the UK’s National Film And Television School. After film school, Julian worked as an independent documentary film producer, making films for Channel Four Television, Arte Channel and WGBH Boston. At film school, Julian met the animator Nick Park, writing the music for his early Wallace and Gromit films. When these films became such a huge success, the offers starting come in and Julian switched to film scoring full time. His work still includes much animation (“Wallace and Gromit in the The Curse of the Wererabbit”, “Peppa Pig”, “Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom”, “The Hungry Caterpillar”). Feature films credits include “The Decoy Bride”, “My Mother’s Courage”, “Heavy Petting” and “A Man Of No Importance”. On television, credits include all four series of the BBC’s popular “Lark Rise to Candleford”, ITV's "The Vice" and David Jason’s comedy “The Royal Bodyguard”.
