Gordon Hulbert's piano lessons, piano masterclasses and piano workshops take the most useful ideas from traditional academic methods and mixes them together with more intuitive, contemporary, technological and relevant techniques. This helps his piano students to develop a variety of diverse keyboard and piano skills for the modern world. His formative years were spent in West Africa, so while embracing the European musical tradition, he believes just as strongly in the traditional 'passed down' teaching styles used by master musicians in countries with predominantly oral musical traditions. He feels that it's essential for today's up-and-coming musicians to include the kind of memorised, recognitive and improvisational skills promoted by music mentors in more intuitive and holistic cultures. Having worked alongside master musicians from many styles, cultures and disciplines, Gordon is convinced that only by combining the more intuitive aspects of music education with the academic tradition can today's musicians be properly equipped to tackle the demands of modern music in a globalised context.
As a performer, Gordon's career has taken him around the world playing an incredibly diverse collection of styles with artists such as Chaka Khan, Hugh Masekela, Russell Watson, Alexander O'Neal, Heatwave, Imagination, The Temptations, Alison Limerick, Suzi Quatro etc, as well as more tech-based acts such as Imogen Heap and Psapp.
Gordon is a successful in-house producer/writer for UMPG. He also has diverse credits with companies such as Universal, Warners, EMI, Armada, Black Hole and BMG to name a few. His compositional styles take in feature film work, advertising jingles and TV series for national and international TV and cable companies, including MTV, NBC, BBC, ITV & Channel 4 etc. .
As a die-hard electronic music fan who likes to keep an eye on the future of the industry, Gordon was active in the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) arena during the 90s/00s, where he was prolific under a number of guises and collaborated on releases by some of the industry's finest, including Stonebridge, Fedde le Grande, Tiesto and Armin van Buuren.
