Ollie joined Harp Academy in 2018 after graduating in Music at BIMM (British and Irish Modern Music Institute) in Brighton & Hove. Ollie’s first instrument is drums, although his depth of musical knowledge and experience also includes harmonica. With a keen aspiration and natural ability for teaching music in schools, Ollie is very popular with our young players. Ollie provides teaching support in our Sussex schools at times when Richard, Will or Ben are involved in touring and festival duties.
Beside teaching, Ollie is involved in many aspects of the local music industry, from producing, writing and recording music, to playing and running live shows. He also manages his own music studios in Shoreham.
