Meet The Music Maestro Ollie!

In Meet the Team by Ben Jinks

Welcome to today’s Meet the Team! Today we meet one of our much loved guitar teachers, Ollie! 

Name – Ollie

Instruments – Guitar, bass and ukulele

Favourite artist – Death Cab for Cutie


Ollie started playing guitar at around 7 or 8 years old, but didn’t start taking it seriously until much later at 14. He then taught himself by learning songs from bands like Green Day, Enter Shikari and My Chemical Romance before moving on to more formal education at college and then university in Southampton.

After graduating, Ollie began gigging extensively all over the UK, recording with various artists and touring with his own originals band. Ollie has remained an active performer since joining PMA 3 years ago, and his ever busy teaching schedule proves he’s not just an excellent musician, but an excellent teacher too!

Fun fact – Ollie performed as a session guitarist for Bucks Fizz, one of the UK’s Eurovision winners!
