I am a Drums, Guitar, Vocals, Music Technology, Bass Guitar Teacher.
I am a multi-instrumentalist musician, songwriter, producer, and dedicated teacher. I have been teaching full-time since 2018, working my way up to a Head of Department position at a different music school. My students have a 100% pass rate in exams (RSL, LCM and RIAM syllabi for all grades). I also spent six months on a teaching tour in Italy in 2017, an experience which inspired me to teach full-time.
I spent my childhood teaching myself guitar, drums, vocals, and production before enrolling at the University of Hull, where I was delighted to find that my skills were transferrable to an academic environment. I graduated with a first-class BA (Hons) degree in Creative Music Technology and received four additional awards. I was then awarded the Santander Scholarship towards postgraduate tuition fees, enabling me to enrol at the University of Leeds and ultimately graduate with an MMus degree in Musicology.
I release self-produced music independently under the name of Sacha and have played in many live bands over the years, predominantly in Belfast and Yorkshire.
