Neil Maunder is our principal as well as a teacher for our students. He has spent his life working in the music industry, originally as a music lecturer in FE before concentrating solely upon his own businesses.

Neil’s experience in live music spans across a wide range of platforms from 1998 to present. He has played for tribute shows and numerous professional bands currently playing with Manchester grunge/rock band, That’s My Eye.

His students include Martin Finnigan (The Rainband), Dave Johnson (Session bassist for The Sugababes along with many other pop acts) and many other music industry professionals. He also has a wide range of beginner’s to advanced students from all walks of life.

Neil is excellent with both beginner and intermediate levels for all styles and with advanced students for his specialist styles. Neil has had a loyal client base for many years. He teaches advanced students in Grunge, Rock, Punk, Pop Punk and Alternative Rock.
