About Us

Amanda & Des met when they worked together as Musicians in their 20’s

Amanda sang and performed from the age of 3 years and started playing guitar aged 10. She turned professional at the age of 19 and worked with a number of bands as lead vocalist.

Des began playing keyboard and guitar in his teens and set up a studio in his loft where he began writing and recording his own songs. He was in a number of bands until he teamed up with Amanda and they worked as a duo in London restaurants & Wine bars.

After settling down together in Oxfordshire they formed the successful band Cloud 9 and played for weddings and parties in prestigious venues all around the area ( Blenheim, Waddesdon, Randolph, Hilton Hotel Chain, Four Pillars Hotel Chain, Sulgrave Manor, Whittlebury Hall,Thames river boat Cruises) to name a few.

Amanda did her teacher training in the early 90’s and set up her children’s MusiKids business. She also worked as a music specialist in schools. In 2002, following training at the voices foundation, she started teaching "Anyone can sing", which has continued to this day and is now called 'The Cloud 9 Choir'.

This was shortly followed by the building of the studio and both Des and Amanda began teaching on a one to one basis. Des teaching keyboard, guitar, song writing and recording and Amanda teaching Vocal and Guitar.

They are both passionate about what they do and cater for every level. They say “ We are truly privileged to be able to do what we love and get paid for it. Music is a gift that should be shared and we are truly blessed” .  



“Amanda and Des are great music teachers. My son attended Amanda's music for toddlers and also had excellent guitar tuition from her. She has a very kind nature and is very professional and good with children.

I have also taken singing lessons and sung in Amanda's choirs. Whilst she is very professional and gets results, you will also have fun too. I recommend Amanda and Des to any future clients.”


Caroline Dawson                         

“Amanda and Des are warm, kind and talented musicians and excellent teachers. Their enthusiasm and determination to enable each person to achieve their musical potential means that hundreds are grateful for their skilled teaching and encouragement and the world has more music!! I was a member of Amanda’s choir in Bicester for over 10 years and loved every minute! Thank you for the music both of you 😊🌟”


Bridget Clapham                        

“Both Amanda and Des have been the most professional music teachers. From preschool Musikids, singing, using instruments & sign language to guitar rock and roll grades both Amanda then Des have been so supportive. Our son has worked with both to develop his skill and he is now a motivated and enthusiastic rock guitarist who loves music. Thank you for your ongoing support. I highly recommend Cloud 9 Musica for their kind, caring and wholehearted teaching expertise as well as their performance. Thank you for influencing the lives of so many in such a positive way.”


Carrie Kirby                         

“Our son started his music journey with Des on electric guitar and keyboard; he’s currently grade 4 on guitar 🎸 and still enjoys his music. Throughly recommended


Geraldine Batten                       

“Amanda and Des are very talented musicians and great teachers. My daughter went to Amanda’s toddler and pre school music group. Amanda taught my daughter to read sheet music. My daughter also learned to play the recorder and ukulele and guitar.

Amanda is a gifted singer and we have been to concerts organised by Amanda and Des.

Such a gifted and generous couple with their time and talents.”


 Julie Reynolds                      

“Amanda did some fantastic work with my daughter and she had a great exam result. Her voice improved 💯 with Amanda’s tutorage and we have some great recordings to listen back on. Her patience and understanding is remarkable as is her love for music. I was so impressed I even took lessons myself!”
