Mitch has so far achieved great things in his relatively young years. Having attained grade 3 on piano by the age of 9 Mitch then realised his true passion was for the guitar, and knew straight away he’d be a natural.

Within 2 years he’d formed his own covers band with some school friends, and went on to perform many gigs in the local area. By the age of 15 Mitch passed his grade 8 exam, a huge achievement for someone so young, and it was around this time that his brother Luke asked him if he fancied starting a band together playing original material, and thus Carnabells were born. 3 years of hard work and many thousands of hours of practise seem to have paid off as the band performed at Glastonbury, Leeds and Reading festivals before embarking on a successful future. Announcing a break in 2018, Mitch and the band aimed to focus on writing, and are looking to begin performing again in 2020.

In addition to his performing though, Mitch was keen to begin teaching, and thus began teaching in 2015, and has built up a large group of students over the years.
