I've been playing in brass bands for 10 years, first starting off on cornet and changing onto tenor horn in 2016. I originally started off in Boarshurst Youth Band and moved to Dobcross Youth Band a few years later. In 2016, I moved back to Boarshurst and joined the Silver Band at the age of 18.
I enjoy a multitude of different brass band arrangements but particularly like the test piece “A Saddleworth Festival Overture” arranged by Goff Richards and the march “Mephistopheles” by Shipley Douglas.
I first started playing as it's a tradition of the family. My grandad used to play euphonium for a number of different bands around Saddleworth, and I wanted to follow in his footsteps of being a bandsman.Back
