Charlie Murray

I learnt guitar, violin, piano and singing at FMD. Following the Musical Theatre Foundation Course at GSA, I studied an ArtsEd Musical Theatre degree in London. Since then I have taken part in a variety of short films, the immersive experience of ‘Dirty Dancing’, ‘Choir of Man’ in Florida and professional pantomimes. I play gigs, both solo and with a band, and work as a session musician. I attribute my achievements to Edward and the springboard the FMD experience gave me into the industry. The passion that the teachers have is infectious and, without a doubt, sparked a passion for music and the arts in me too, which otherwise may have been missed.
