In June 2013 I established TMP Studios CIC (trading as The Music Projects), a music business specialising in Music and Music Technology, we currently have over 150 students, some through private tuition in vocals and instrumentals and some community classes aimed at some of the disadvantaged people in the local community.. We work with Wigan Local Authority teaching children in care, with various charities and with Blackburn and Darwen Music Hub to deliver music tuition in several schools. In the summer of 2015 we were fortunate enough to be successful in our bid to Youth Music to run our "Music Everywhere" project.
In the three years we have been open, we have expanded considerably and have recently moved to bigger premises to hold additional music studios, a recording studio, practice rooms and recreational space. We have also teamed up with True Colours, a charity supporting people with Autism and we work closely with them.
We were successful with our bid to Youth Music in 2015 and ran an amazing project, 'Music Everywhere', reaching over 100 young people in the community and in our studios with outcomes exceedeing our iniital hopes. The young people had an incredible experience with us which completely enriched their lives and for many gave them a whole new direction in their lives. We have recently heard that we have been successful with our second bid 'Music Everywhere....Taking it Higher' for which we have exciting new plans to take our project to a new level, introducing new strands and reaching a bigger and new audience. Details of the project will be on our website shortly and we will provide regular updates on the project.
As the Director of TMP Studios CIC I have experience of teaching music technology, theory and instrumental lessons to vulnerable young people, including those with sensory impairments, mental health conditions, physical disabilities, youth offenders and students who have had negative experience at mainstream school. I have experience of teaching instrumental lessons to private customers, primarily drums as well as guitar and bass and of teaching large groups in a further education college.
I gained my Batchelor of Arts in Music Technology and Sound Design at Huddersfield University and am a qualified teacher.
I have a good insight and strong understanding of many aspects of the music industry. I have worked in a professional recording studio and have have played in a few local bands, including playing drums in a band for the previous 3 years, touring the UK and Europe.
