2nd Euphonium

Sam Thompson

I started playing euphonium at the age of 9, where I played in several wind ensembles at my local music service in Solihull, West Midlands. I am currently studying a Masters in Musical Performance at the University of Salford, being taught by Katrina Marzella Wheeler.

Before joining Boarshurst Silver Band in November 2017, I played with bands such as The Shirley Band (my local band from home), Denton Brass Band, and Hazel Grove Brass Band.

Having played a fair amount of marches my favourite is The Jaguar by Goff Richards.

Being on the band course at university I have also played many test pieces, with my favourite being Labour and Love, which just happens to be the first ever test piece. My musical interest comes from my musical family with my mum playing piano, brother playing cornet and my sister playing saxophone and singing.
