Musicians’ Favourite Music Teachers

As you may be aware, today is World Teachers Day. When it comes to the influence of teachers on where we are all now and the future path we have taken, we sit here in our recording studio in London grateful of the influence many of our teachers have had on us in the past. To celebrate World Teachers Day we thought it would be apt to celebrate their importance of the development of some of the nation’s favourite musicians, so let’s take a look at what they have to say!

Grant Nichols (Feeder)

Anybody who had ears throughout the 90’s and 00’s will remember the impact that Feeder had on all the music channels and radio stations. They have released some absolute classics in their time, in no short part to Grant Nichols, the primary songwriter. As such, we felt it would be great to take a look at who Nichols credits the most with the title of who helped him become the famous musician he is today.

Wild Beasts

Wild Beasts have been in existence since forming at school in 2002, Kendal. Subsequently appearing on Radio 6 in 2006, Wild Beasts have gone from strength to strength, signing to Domino Records in 2007, where they released their first album a year later. They were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize with their second album, Two Dancers, in 2010 and even went onto win the London Awards for Art and Performance in 2011. Having now released their fourth album in 2014, who do they credit as their musical teacher inspiration?

Ella Henderson

No she’s not just known for her Celebrity Come Dine With Me appearance… Ella Henderson was actually a contestant on X Factor and has since gone onto sign for Syco Music and even achieved a UK number one for her single Ghost which achieved a platinum status the UK, USA and New Zealand and Australia. But where does she site that her initial musical influence came from?

Whilst these World XYZ Days are a daily occurrence, and some of them are seemingly innocuous and pointless, we feel that these teachers need celebrating. Spare your major influence a thought today and give them a thanks if you can, I imagine it would mean the world to them. If it’s a music teacher, then what better way to thank them by not letting your talent go to waste?
