Sandi ThomNo.1 selling international music star – “Oh I wish I was a Punk Rocker”

“Morningside School of Music offers fantastic opportunities for young people who want to get involved in the music industry but they also help more experienced players who are looking for the next step. The teachers are of extremely high calibre and are well trained in what they do and this is what makes the music school a great place to better your musical journey. I have always been impressed with the fact that they concentrate so hard on the teaching of popular music as well as classical music, the facilities are great and in an ideal location.”

Ronnie GurrFormer creative director of V2, Virgin Records and Sony Music Corporation

“In the all the time I’ve known the teachers at the Morningside School of Music, I’ve been impressed by their passion for music, their dedication to their students and their ability to pass on their extensive knowledge. Had I access to this level of music teaching when I was learning, I’d be twice the musician I am today.”
