We have a wonderful team of trained professional singers, musicians and producers who deliver our music programme. They use their experience to inspire our young cohort and bring greater understanding to those wishing to take their skills to the next level. All tutors are DBS checked and have participated in further training to maintain understanding of safeguarding vulnerable children. They are encouraged to attend external training through Sound Connections and Lewisham Music Hub.

Paul Chivers

AYM Music Production Tutor

He expanded his didactic sphere under the inspirational tutelage of jazz drummer and pedagogue John Stevens, as well as with organisations Community Music and WAC Arts, with whom he has maintained working relationships for more than 20 years. 

Paul is one of the UK’s unsung electronic pioneers, known for his voltaic live shows during the acid house explosion, performing at now legendary raves, and touring with Orbital, The Shaman and The Irresistible Force, and for his releases on cult record label Irdial Discs. Just recently, his 1990 classic “Cameroon Massif!” has become a feature of the more ground-breaking DJs again.
