About Sophie Garner
Having started her professional career with the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain (1991-1992 Maggie May and Amphibias Spangulatos), a determination to succeed and share her passions emerged, leading Sophie to become the first artist to play the London O2 Arena, setting a standard to beat by artists who followed in her footsteps.
A strong leader, inspired and trusted, Sophie fronts and manages several professional bands, writing, co producing and sharing her expertise with as many students as she can, strengthening the talent, confidence, writing and vocal technique of the artists of our future.
A natural educator and full of energy, Sophie’s passions and goals stem from believing in the true, holistic and deep effects of music, and sharing the gift of music, as a therapy and a life skill, to help others learn to comfortably express themselves, allowing her students to grow in confidence and develop socially.
A great communicator and easy to follow, Sophie allows students to excel creatively, and this is what Sophie thrives on.
Her nurturing and empathic nature continues in Sophie’s one to one music therapy sessions with children with SEN and behavioural issues, allowing troubled and struggling children the chance to express their needs and feelings in a supportive and unique environment.
