Hi, my name is Josh and I’m a drum tutor at Clive’s Music School.

I first started playing drums when I was 15. When I first started playing I’d just play on my drum kit at home along to the bands and artists that I liked. It was then that I realised my passion for music. I played my first gig when I was 18 and have been gigging ever since. 

I studied at The Southampton Academy of Music and Sound where I completed an apprenticeship in performance drumming. Following this I then studied for a further three years to achieve a BA Hons Degree in Performance Music. During these years I also became the drummer in the rock band, Saints Of Sin. We’ve been lucky enough to have played on festival stages at the Isle of Wight, Teddy Rocks and the Great Dorset Steam Fair, as well as doing extensive gigging around the country. We have released three albums in total so far. As well as this I also provide session work in a local studios for other artists.

Hi, my name is Sophie and I'm a guitar tutor at Clive's music School. 

I started learning to play guitar with Clive's Music School back when I was 9 years old. Ever since I picked up a guitar for the first time I've been incredibly passionate about music.

I recently finished a two year course at Bournemouth Academy of Modern Music, leaving me with an extended level 3 diploma in guitar performance!

I am currently teaching and playing live music in a rock band for a living, alongside some session work dotted around here and there.

Meet the team

Likewise with Josh, our drum tutor, I'm also a member of Saints Of Sin...although the newest addition to the group!

We've done some pretty cool things across the time I've been a part of this band so far....one of which was writing, recording and releasing our first full length album Welcome To The Circus! It was an amazing process to have been a part of. 

My future aim within music is to continue teaching, and to increase my workload as a session musician alongside working within the band.
