Meet the Founder

Derin Johnson, Founder and CEO of Online Music Academy

A gifted multi-instrumentalist, in 1995 Derin set up his first music academy with a vision to train and release people with no musical knowledge as budding musician. The music academy pioneered many community led initiatives in the area of music and the arts. Since then, Derin has trained and released thousands of students locally and worldwide.

Married with 3 kids, Derin co-founded with his wife Bidemi Johnson, Templesprings Music Centre. Templesprings is a registered UK charity and an Arts Award Centre. An organisation, known for its music led youth programs, Templesprings engages over 850 children and young people every year in music making.

OMA is Derin's newest music academy. "I want to create an online global platform that gives the gift of music to every child and builds confidence through our tried and tested music coaching techniques".

Derin has been successfully supporting individuals and empowering families, using music as a gateway to transforming lives.
