When did you start playing and on what instrument?

I picked up a trumpet when I was 10 and have never looked back!

 

Who was your inspiration when you started playing?

The same year I started playing my Uncle and Aunt bought me a record (yes, vinyl, remember those!!) of the great French Trumpet player Maurice Andre. He was, and always will be, my idol.

Playing in front of the band with my gorgeous partner, Sue, conducting!

Play in more great concerts, entertaining everyone and inspiring the next generation to take up music.
