“I’m delighted to be working with the Echo Factory as a global ambassador, I believe strongly in their message and, more importantly, the ethics behind the school. In taking a holistic approach to music education and allying it with an awareness of what it means to be a musician in the modern world, the Echo Factory is creating a formidable skill set for the graduating student for years to come.”

” After having been an international musician for two and a half decades and having seen the challenges that young musicians face, I can honestly say that Echo Factory is the one institution of music that integrates the skill sets of art and business in their pathways, and does not keep them separate, all the while respecting both aspects equally. ”

“Music is such a broad and varied area to work in and it takes time and experience to get a grasp of that breadth. Echo Factory fast forwards that process to give students a thorough knowledge of the many aspects of music, as well as prioritsing staying current with what is happening in ‘the real world’. I’m excited about what Echo Factory can achieve and I am honoured to be an ambassador for what I believe is forward thinking music education.”
