As a touring musician, Ace has lived, breathed and experienced the full extent of the music industry (including setting up his own business!) and thus will be an invaluable asset to ALL ACM students looking to carve out their career in music.
Ace is the guitarist in UK rock phenomenon Skunk Anansie. Formed in 1994, they went on to be one of the biggest rock bands in Britain and Europe throughout the ‘90s and ‘00s, selling over 6 million records and playing sell-out world tours. They still continue to tour today and release new music through their own independent record label.
He has earned a reputation as being one of the top guitarists in the rock world as well as an author, teacher, session player and musical entrepreneur. He has also been producing records professionally since 2001 and has worked on records with many European bands with varied musical styles.
As a tutor, Ace has taught Live Performance and A&R courses as a module leader and lead assessor. He is also a guest tutor and delivers masterclasses at various UK and European colleges and has an MA in Media and Project Management based in Music Education from London Middlesex University.
