Who are we?

Ben Minal Co-founder

When I sat behind a drum kit aged 13 and fumbled my way through my first beat I was immediately hooked. Finding something I loved to do and wanted to improve at all the time was so exciting and ultimately life-changing. Many years later I’m now fortunate enough to dedicate my time to working with my bands, making video content and helping loads of you to reach your musical goals with Musicisum!

Dan Davies Co-founder

I have been playing music for years, and have made it one of my life goals to always surround myself with musicians and people who love music. I'm priviliged to be able to work with a group of great friends, and I get to bring my love of great videos, web design, user experience, and teaching music to a project that is always evolving and improving. The coolest thing about building Musicisum is that I use it myself!

Ben Murden Lead software engineer

I've been into computers since I was a kid and have been a long-time software developer. I have also always had a fascination with creating music, and now I get to combine the two! I'm delighted to be able to work with friends and bring bleeding edge technology to create a platform for others who also want to know the joy of creating their own music.

James Gilyead Designer

Design fascinates me! Successfully transforming a pile of ideas, words, and pictures into a product people understand and want to use is so satisfying. Being able to do my dream job with a team of genuine, friendly people is the icing on the cake. The cherry on top is that it's all about that other most fascinating subject: Music! I've played drums in a few dodgy rock n roll bands over the years and have always loved the power of live music!

Rabea Massaad Guitar teacher

Guitar has always been the instrument that has given me the feeling of "I want to do that!" more than any other instrument. The fact that you can incorporate melody and rhythm, and manipulate those in any way you want is what keeps it fresh for me. I can create whatever I hear inside my head, and put it out through my guitar as a pure expression of inspiration. That's what I love about guitar! With Musicisum I wanted to create a course that allowed players of all abilities to learn something new, by covering all bases from rhythm and technique through to melody and chords. This is the kind of guitar course I would have loved to be given when I started learning.

Hannah Boulton Singing teacher

I’m a people person, and there’s nothing I love more than singing, so to be able to marry the two by working alongside an awesome team is just great! I couldn’t sing as a child, but something miraculous happened when I was 11. I suddenly had a passion to sing, and I had a voice. I put in years of hard work and every practice session helped me to grow my voice. Learning to sing is an adventure, and just like any adventure, you experience highs and lows, but with the right guidance and attitude you will have an amazing story to tell! I’m passionate about exploring the voice and seeing others grow and evolve as musicians, and I can’t wait to help you start your own journey!
