Sounak Saha

Foundation Guitar Faculty

Born in Calcutta, India in 1991. Started playing the guitar at the age of 15-16. Started learning classical Guitar then got inspired by Contemporary Rock guitar playing and started teaching myself the electric guitar with the help of YouTube/whatever source was available.

I wanted to take up music as a profession and realized the importance of music theory very early and decided to join London Centre of Contemporary Music in London.

Moved to London at the age of 19 to pursue music education and acquired Bachelors of Music (Hons) in Performance under Middlesex University.

During my years in London I studied performance/composition/arranging/production under great teachers such as Blake Wilner, Ed Speight, Tommy Emmerton, Simon Wallace, Dave O’ Higgins, Geoff Gascoyne, and lots more.

I also performed with various artists across multiple well-known venues which includes O2 Academy Islington, Proud Camden, Cargo, Charlie Wright’s, Floripa, Rhythm Factory, Surya London and various venues others. This gave me a lot of experience in playing in multiple situations across various genres, which includes Jazz, Blues, Rock, R&B, Soul, funk, etc.
