I learned to play the trumpet when I started Castle Rushen High School in 1965, and joined the Band the same year, playing 2nd cornet. I was one of the founder members and a Principal Cornet of the Manx Youth Band, and attended a course with the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain (in 1972). From 1978 to 1987, I was Principal Cornet with the (Castletown) Band, and during that time arranged the Band’s first foreign tour to the Rhine Valley in Germany. I took a short break from the Band whilst my family were growing, and returned to play B flat bass for a time. I am fortunate to have three children who all love music and I have been able to teach them to play brass instruments. They all play in the Band when they are at home. I became Musical Director in 2006, and very much enjoy the challenge!
