Julian Geisterfer started playing guitar at the age of 9. For the first few years, he studied with the well‐established Jazz musician Gabe Bianchini in Ottawa. After one year of studying classical music, he got accepted into the Music Conservatory of Gatineau, where he is currently finishing a Bachelor’s degree with the professor Patrick Roux. Also, in 2010, Julian, driven by a passion for flamenco music, went to Spain to study this style
with the maestro Olo Guerrero. Over the years, Julian has won many prizes including the first prize at the Montreal International Guitar competition in the youth category, the first prize at the provincial Kiwanis competition grade 10, the first prize in the Canadian music competition in his category in 2007, the scholarship from the Outaouais Guitar Academy in 2011, and the first prize ex aequo in the Outaouais guitar competition last year. He has also had the chance to play in front of classical guitar masters such as Fabio Zanon, Pepe Romero, Pavel Steidl, Lorenzo Micheli, Judicael Perroy, Roland Dyens, Matteo Mela, Celso Machado, as well as others.
