    Hi! I'm looking for a solo Euph position in Scotland. I live in Dumbarton, so places like Aberdeen are just a bit on the far side to travel. :)
    I've just come back to playing after a 13 year break. Spent the last month working very hard to get all my facial muscles back. pretty satisfied now.
    My playing experience: Well, I studied at Salford for the degree in Band Musicianship. Nick Childs was my teacher. I got a distinction in my major elective in the degree which was performance and also conducting. (One of my recital pieces was John Golland's 1st Euphonium Concerto.) Whilst at Salford I was playing in Stockport Citadel SA Band. So, I never signed for anyone. BUT I did help out CWS Glasgow (as they were then called) on solo Euph a couple of times, also Brittania on 2nd euph, helped out Marple at Isle of Mann contests, and various other lower bands helping out friends who were conductors.
    I am from Clydebank originally and only moved back to Scotland about 3 months ago.
    I am loving playing again - probably even more than before!!

    Anyway, if anyone needs me or wants more details, please PM me. Thanks :)

    Yep, she's right. It's Kenny here. How you doin'? I'm struggling to see who you are from your photo though, sorry! It's been a long, long time since Salford.

    To all who contacted me inviting me along to your respective bands - Thank You very much. I didn't quite expect to receive as many pm's as I did. Thank you all for your warm invitations. I have now joined Whitburn Band.
