Lewis Slack, Managing Director

The founder member of the Ace Tones Group, Lewis has always had a keen and dedicated interest in music. He began piano lessons at the age of 4 and was classically trained to grade 8. He found his true love at the age of 10, the Saxophone! He took his Saxophone training up to grade 8 for both Jazz and Classical. He added to his musical abilities by going on to become an accomplished Clarinettist and Flautist. His practical music background was reinforced with a BA honours degree in Jazz from Middlesex University; this established his desire for a career within music.

He began after University by teaching children and adults of all ages locally. Combining his musical talent with his patience and tenacity, this has flourished into the successful business of today, Ace Tones Music Ltd. Lewis expanded The Ace Tones Group by introducing Ace Tones Entertainment Ltd for corporate and band entertainment and Ace Tones Music UK Ltd along with Dave Tranmer, the London branch of the teaching company. He satisfies his passion for a hands on approach to music as the Sax player in the highly successful Rock and Roll band The One Eyed Cats, and has played in various other high profile bands and performed sessions for Radio and Television.

David joined the Ace Tones Group in 2004 when he teamed with Lewis Slack to create Ace Tones Music UK Ltd. With a keen interest and love for music, and 25 years of distinctive and valuable business knowledge, David decided to venture into the music business offering his expert entrepreneurial skills to the Ace Tones Group. Within six months of joining the organisation, he expanded to open up Ace Tones Music Services, North London’s premier music retail outlet. One year after opening Ace Tones Music Services he expanded the premises by incorporating the shop next door. The shop now constitutes North London's biggest sheet music provider.
