Brass Band Weekend I am delighted to announce that I will be the course director of Higham Hall's [www.highamhall.com] first (of hopefully many) Brass Band Weekend in February 2021. This promises to be a fun and rewarding weekend with fabulous tutors David Thornton and Andy Kershaw (...and myself!). Anyone interested should contact me in the first instance to ascertain instrument, level and suitability.
Busy Weekend I am giving my chops a rest today after a busy weekend of blowing. On Friday I had a very fun gig at RAF Lakenheath with the Bavarian Strollers...there were Stenis and Bratwurst as far as the eye could see as part of their Oktoberfest celebrations! Yesterday I was delighted to play once again for the Lee Memphis King Elvis Show...a great show with a very appreciative audience. [Sept 2019]
Selmer Radial 2° B-flat Trumpet for Sale I am selling a beautifully reconditioned Selmer Radial 2° B-flat trumpet designed with Maurice André during the sixties. This is a 1972 (I believe) Selmer Radial 2 large / extra-large bore (some website say 0.468 others 0.470) with '99' stamped on the leadpipe. Beautifully restored a few years ago but never really played since. Beautiful engraving down the bell and comes with original Selmer mouthpiece. For photos, further information and price, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com. [Sept 2019]

Waterbeach Brass I am delighted to accept the soprano cornet chair at Waterbeach Brass. This promises to be fun but with a certain amount of challenge having not played soprano cornet since the areas with Zone One Brass in 2007...wish me luck! [Sept 2019]
