About MLC Derby

Music Learning Collective

Owner & manager, Nishan Chady, has been a student himself of MLC Nottingham for over 15 years and has worked with the Academy in a number of roles for the past 13 years.

He has performed at venues and festivals around the UK, as well as working as a session musician on a number of recordings in working studios and remotely from his own studio. His passion for music and performance spans a wide range of genres and he is always keen to share this passion with others.

He holds a grade 8 distinction in his first instrument, drums, as well as an undergraduate degree in Sound Engineering & Production, to which he graduated with 1st class honours, in 2014. Since then, Nishan has not only been working as a teacher for MLC (1-2-1 Drum lessons/Music Production lessons, and group Arts Award classes), but he has also continued his own path of learning and completed two further diplomas in Music Performance (DipRSL) as well as Music Tuition (ATCL).

Nishan’s enthusiasm, knowledge & professionalism will now be brought to Derby with his team of music tutors hoping to further encourage aspiring musicians, no matter their age or ability.

Frankie has just had an online drum lesson and he thought it was great fun! It was so easy to set up and get started and was very convenient and less stressful to have the lesson available in our home. The lesson was of the usual very high standard and Frankie is really looking forward to the next one.
