Member Since
 Started playing with Shrewton band in January 2013
Early Years
I started playing the cornet at the age of 8 due to being brought up in a very large brass banding family!
i started playing with Sherborne town B band before moving to the senior band on a few occasions. I then went on to join Wincanton Silver Band on 3rd cornet,
during my 18 years with Wincanton i moved up the cornet rank to eventually being the bands youngest principle cornet before moving onto soprano. My best moments in banding so far are; playing in the county youth band, tours to Germany, playing at the national finals 3 times in 5 years with my 1st at the age of 14, and now also being MD of Shaftesbury Town Silver Band.
