Julia is a pianist of exceptional talent. Next to an excellent piano technique, Yulia has a very fine sense of phrasing, musical nuance and most importantly a distinct artistic individuality. She has also made a name for herself as a wonderful teacher and pedagogue.

Lucas Blondeel, Professor at the University of Arts in Berlin
Julia Chaplin is a wonderful pianist of high individuality. Her playing makes use of very nuanced possibilities of phrasing, articulation and sound, which is supported by a technique of the highest level. She is a fantastic and devoted teacher and pedagogue who already has a big experience.

Björn Lehman, Professor at the University of Arts in Berlin

I felt extremely privileged to invite Ms Chaplin to hold a masterclass for students attending my class. Lessons with Ms Chaplin became an invaluable experience for every student, as the approach taken by Ms Chaplina, characterised by thorough focus on unequivocal phrase-building supported by awareness of musical style, ranging from Baroque to post-WWII soviet piano repertoire, set a benchmark in perfection for every attendee. 

It is with utmost sincerity and esteem that I value my professional relationship with Ms Chaplina, one of the most accomplished artists of Russian background, who has taken an important step further to develop her own voice as a mentor for the younger generation.

Yoshio Hamano, University Lecturer at the Tokyo University of the Arts and Tokyo College of Music 
Julia is able to give young professional students some impressively efficacious tools, which immediately bring
their performance to a higher level. Her empathy, her solid knowledge and her consistent competence make me today consider Julia as one of the best professional teachers of our generation, and this is why I encourage my own students to take part in her masterclasses or even to profit from her private teaching. While teaching, Chaplin has the ability to preserve a first rank quality level of performance, which makes me believe she will soon appear as one of the leading figures of both the teaching and artistic international scenery.
