I’ve had quite a hectic 7 months having taken on a full-time teaching role from January until Christmas this year. In the meantime though I was very surprised and honoured to be awarded the Best Soloist Award at the Yorkshire Area in March and best cornet at the Brass in Concert Championships (BIC). I’ve have had my usual commitments with Carlton Main Frickley Colliery, including becoming the French Open Champions in June and a great 2nd place at BIC.
I also led a masterclass as part of Durham Brass Festival on Sunday 22nd July followed by my 12th year as the Cornet Tutor for Wessex Band Summer School starting on Monday 30th July.
Also had another great tour with Desford in Thailand.
Here’s a video of me playing from that tour.
Have a happy Christmas and a great new year everybody 🙂
