The Origin Story

Warmest Greetings from the Next Octave Music School!

Thank you for making it this far with us. I’m Dwayne Creado, a full-time Music Educator, Singer, Guitarist & Entrepreneur.


As 90’s kids, we grew up listening to Enrique Iglesias, Eminem & a bunch of talented artists during the era. I enjoyed being the bathroom singer but was a pretty awkward kid at school's musical events. I received my first guitar as a Christmas present in Grade 6. Tried playing the instrument for a month but just couldn’t find the right guidance in the teacher and ended up losing complete interest. To cut a long story short, my love for music only multiplied when I crossed paths with my guitar, once again, during junior college. I was highly influenced by my peers playing their guitars during breaks that

I fell in love with it. I still remember how inspired I was! I then decided to pick up the guitar and teach myself the instrument. Positive peer pressure could really work wonders at times! Over a period of time I taught myself to sing and play simultaneously, I started recording videos on Youtube, Instagram, etc., really enjoying the process. Later formed a local band and performed for various group and solo gigs. I created original music for agencies as a freelancer, too. While pursuing my Aircraft Maintainance Engineering in 2012, I started tutoring the guitar. Taught my first student in 2015.  Fast-forwarding a few years, I enjoyed teaching and then decided to quit my profession to pursue my love for music. Like any other ambitious kid, a childhood passion laid the foundation for me at Next Octave Music today; I want to call it thanksgiving, for the love music, has bestowed upon me since a kid.

As of the present day, I’ve tutored over a thousand students across various schools from Mumbai, namely Bombay Scottish Powai, TGAA Chembur & Mulund, The Cathedral, And John Connon School Churchgate, St. Anthony's School, etc.

I also specialize in the early developer’s music program for young kids. 

Over the years, I've met a talented set of professional musicians who shared similar interests, who eventually became friends. Each of them is a full-time musician at the Core of their profession with tremendous coaching experience, locally and internationally. I reached out to them to build upon my idea of an Online Music Platform, and off we went!

With our acquired knowledge & skills-set and over a year’s worth of brainstorming, research, and planning, we created

The Next Octave Family, which now comprises highly trained coaches from Internationally recognized Institutions across India. We strove hard to provide a truly transparent, genuine & economic experience to every student from the comfort of their homes. For tutors, Next Octave Music School also aims to provide potential teaching & career options, which are well paid for.  We aim to grow together with our educators. Bearing in mind the new-age classroom methodologies for the future of musical education, the ever-growing demand for online platforms, and the comfort of our clients. We carefully curated 5 Professional Courses with a globally accepted syllabus while keeping costs economical. Each course is well-designed, distinctive of the age factor, intellectual capacity & New-Age Musicology. Our courses follow unique teaching ideologies which instantly set us apart in terms of approaching concepts and instilling learning.

To conclude, Next Octave Music School now operates Internationally within the first week of our launch, and we couldn’t have been more stoked! We want to thank you for your valuable time and wish you the very best on your musical journey on behalf of the Next Octave team.

Happy learning!
