Member Since
October 2010, but I have played on and off for Shrewton Silver Band since the mid 1990’s.
Early Years
Learnt to play aged 8 . I was lucky that my primary school (Talbot Combined in Poole) had a brass band. The headmaster Derek Hancock was a member of the Salvation Army, he enlisted the help of his friend John Clark to start a brass band. We all knew that we were so lucky to be involved, we toured in Europe and the UK, and competed in competitions, fantastic times!!
Previous Bands
City of Cambridge Brass Band ,Poole Borough Band, Ringwood & Burley, Shrewton ( in the mid 1990’s), Brighton Buses
Favourite Music
Anything challenging really…especially enjoy a classic contest peice which you can sink your teeth into! Also love playing movie music, and popular show tunes. I have an extensive collection of Brass on my Itunes, so beware anyone who travels in my car..
Other Stuff…
I live in Shaftesbury with my husband Simon, and our two children Grace & Arthur.
