From a young age Ayo was introduced to the world of music learning to play the saxophone and piano. On saxophone he had the opportunity to play with several youth bands such as the LSSO as well as taking part in the Essentially Ellington big band course run by the Lincoln centre. Ayo formed a more serious commitment to music during his last years of school where his passion for playing the piano was ignited. He was fortunate to meet Julian Joseph who helped guide him through his learning and continues to support him. He attends the Julian Joseph Jazz Academy as a student and supporting tutor. Ayo went on to study Jazz performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and graduated in 2017. During his studies there, he regularly led bands performing across the city. Since his return to London he has further pursued his musical development through many means. As well as performing at many different venues he has played for recording sessions and masterclasses; collaborated with visiting Japanese and Brazilian artists and co-hosts a regular jam session.


Ayo directed and arranged a program of music that was performed at the American Ambassadors house in London for Independence Day celebrations . He also arranged parts for HMDT’s Trench Brothers project that was performed in the Brighton Dome. Ayo is dedicated to passing his skills on to the next generation of young musicians through the organisation World Heart Beat Music Academy. There he teaches Jazz and Pop classes and leads a New Orleans marching band that perform regularly over the summer months.

Ayo is currently continuing to enrich his musical abilities and understanding as well as exploring composition with the aim to start a new project in the future.
