I started playing the cornet when I was in Primary
6 by Steven Boyd who then passed me onto Mr Hugh
Johnstone MBE. I played the cornet for two years
before moving onto baritone for one year, followed
by Euphonium for two years.
Five years ago I joined Dalmellington Senior Band
playing the Bass. During my time playing with the
Senior Band we have played many contests & concerts
with our best result during my time playing with
them coming 3rd in the Senior Cup in Blackpool.
I have played Principal Bb Bass for the past five
years with the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland.
Two years ago I was one of three people chosen to
represent Scotland with the European Brass Band
in Rotterdam at the European Championships.
At present I am enjoying playing with Dalmellington
Band & gaining experience as conductor with
Dalmellington Junior Band.
