CEO, Practice Pal
I'm Ross Garrod, Founder and CEO of Practice Pal. My passion for quality music education isn't just for the sake of music - it's for the sake of a child's future. I know that prioritising instrumental music education gives children the best life chances, and that's why I built Practice Pal - an online platform that makes it possible for everyone - bringing together the best in music, education and technology to transform a generation's life chances. On the rare occasion I'm not building Practice Pal, I'm putting my passion into practice ' teaching and playing music. With 14 years experience teaching percussion and examining internationally for Trinity, I've been a regular guest principal with Royal Ballet Sinfonia and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and played with many of the country's most prestigious orchestras.
