Julián García was born in La Plata, Argentina, on January 8, 1981. He began to study electric bass with a private teacher from his hometown at the age of 12, and at the age of 14 he started playing live with several local rock groups.
At the age of 17, he decided to devote himself fully as a professional musician and began to study bass with a renowned jazz guitarist and bassist from his city who, after a few months, called him to play the bass in his jazz quintet, where his teacher played the guitar. As a member of that jazz group he performed several shows, cycles and jam sessions in pubs and at private parties in his hometown and neighboring cities, sharing the stage with prominent musicians from the national jazz scene.

In 1998 he began to venture into the world of luthery due to his penchant for manual work and decided to put that skill and the musical world together by researching about repair and modification of stringed instruments.

Between 1998 and 2002 he studied at the EMPA (Popular Music School of Avellaneda), one of the most important popular music teaching institutions in Argentina. At the same time he continued to take private classes with several nationally recognized bass players, and he also started to give private classes of electric bass.

Between 2000 and 2003 he joined a Latin-rock group, doing a lot of shows in several cities in Argentina and with which he traveled to Brazil in 2001 to record a record in the city of Salvador, Brazil.

In 2003 he moved to Buenos Aires, the capital city of the country, where he taught both privately and in several private music education institutions. (and from) Since then until 2014 he devoted himself to develop his professional career by participating in shows and recordings as a session musician or guest with groups and soloists of the most diverse musical styles at a national level and in neighboring countries.

That same year, and simultaneously with his music presentations, he began his activity as a professional luthier, after several years of research and personal practice not only with his instruments but also with those of his group colleagues, performing calibrations, modifications and repairs of guitars and basses, and providing his services as guitar/bass tech to several groups and musicians of the Buenos Aires music scene.

In 2014 he returned to his hometown, where he decided to install a professional luthery workshop called Dr. Groove,.It offers specialized services of repair and customization of electric and acoustic guitars and basses to a large number of professional and amateur musicians from various cities in the country as well as recording studios, rehearsal rooms and music schools. From that moment onwards, Dr. Groove has become a recognized workshop in its city and nationally, thanks to the YouTube channel, that has the same name as the workshop, and where he shares his knowledge about luthery and musical equipment with the entire musical community becoming the first Spanish speaking channel of its kind.

Nowadays he goes on directing Dr. Groove, which continues growing and adding services to satisfy the needs of musicians at a local and national level. He also  gives courses and seminars about lutherie both in his workshop and in various institutions related to music education. He also continues with his work as a free lance session bass player performing live shows and recordings with various artists of different music styles all over the country.
