Torsten Juul-Borre
Piano Lessons
Templeton, California

Born in Minnesota to Danish immigrants, his family moved to California in the 1960’s where he received his early musical training. His musical talent earned him various coveted honors and acceptance at the prestigious Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara.

At the age of seventeen he was accepted at the Royal Danish Music Conservatory in Copenhagen, Denmark. An intense seven-year course of study included all facets of music and piano performance with advanced studies in chamber music, accompaniment, vocal and instrumental coaching, and a minor degree as organist. At the Conservatory he studied with Arne Skjold Rasmussen, renowned interpreter of Beethoven and Carl Nielsen, and with the internationally known pianist and accompanist Kjell Olsson. Engagements in Denmark include the Tivoli Gardens Concert Hall and the Copenhagen Summer Music Festival at Charlottenburg Palace.

Mr. Juul-Borre is an active concert artist both in Europe and in the United States. His versatility and education have also opened doors to playing on the fine pipe organs of historic Europe.

Music is the language of the soul, able to reflect every nuance of life’s experiences, and Torsten Juul-Borre distills music’s essence into powerful, unforgettable performances. “Music is wrought with beauty and with logic,” he believes, and during his concerts he strives to relate “the joy, the depth, and the vitality as I’ve experienced it”. His virtuosity is able to entrance the listener from the first few bars to the finale, causing the audience to wonder where the time has gone.
