Meet the Tutor – Marwan Kamal AKA Mighty Moe – Music And Performance Level 1 Lead Tutor
What do you do at DV8?
I teach the SoundSkool Music Performance course
What were you doing before you started working at DV8
I was a DJ and MC in a sound system called the Heartless Crew from 1995 – 2010.
How did you get a job at DV8?
Through my friend, Simon Gordon who runs SoundSkool. I’ve worked on music workshops with them in the past.
What makes you good at your job?
As a musician, my experience allows me to help young people with their own performances and creative writing. I think being patient, calm and friendly also helps. It’s all about having good vibes while we learn.
What do you do for fun?
Recording, producing my own music and going to live shows. I also like to practice yoga. I collect toys, books and other vintage random stuff.
What are your favourite TV Shows, Movies, Books, Bands etc?
I have a really wide taste so don’t have a favourite, also depends what mood I’m in.
What is your favourite DV8 moment?
Seeing the learners achieve, grow and gain confidence and skills in their music, social and academic life! It’s always great to put on a showcase at the end of each term where we put all these elements together.
What are you up to at the moment?
I have just released part 2 in a series of mix-tapes entitled ‘Yagga Yo!’. I’m currently writing new music and performing at live events.
What are your ambitions for the future?
I’m currently studying for my PGCE and reflecting on my own practice to become a better teacher. I would like to continue working with DV8 and SoundSkool helping the new generations achieve their potential.
