Sacha Johnson


Sacha studied percussion at the Birmingham Conservatoire and then the Guildhall School of Music. This was followed by a Fellowship at the Tanglewood Institute. Since then he has worked regularly with many of the UK’s leading symphony orchestras and opera companies. This has included being a guest principal with The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Concert Orchestra, Welsh National Opera and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. He also performs regularly as a vibraphone soloist, playing a range of music from Baroque to Contemporary, and is a member of the Kokoro contemporary music ensemble.

Away from classical music, Sacha has worked on several West End productions including Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King, Cats, Saturday Night Fever and We Will Rock You.

As committed to teaching as he is to playing, Sacha has been teaching percussion at Marlborough College since 1998, becoming Head of Percussion in 2007. He is also a self-confessed ‘percussion anorak’, being a member of  the National Association of Percussion Teachers, the VibesWorkshop and the Percussive Arts Society.
