    My name is Naomi Cornish AKA Naruco.
    A multi-instrumentalist, 22 years old, living in Manchester, originally from Devonshire.
    Having completed the BA hons Degree at the University of Salford this year I am continuing my education at Salford studying on the Masters degree specilising in Conducting.

    I've been involved in banding since the year 2000 and in this time have played in all sections up and down the country.

    I currently hold the position of Musical Director to the Coppull and Standish Band, 4th section, based in Wigan, which I've held for three months now... There I am known as Conductor Bird, or C.B. !! And I also play cornet with them when doing Walking Days in and around the local area.

    Not playing full time with anyone at the moment, however I offer myself as a drum kit / percussion dep to anyone who needs it; assuming I'm available to help, that is :p

    As well as the practical side to music I am a keen composer, which I've been since I was 8 years old, writing in all styles from pop to dance, jazz to brass band....
    My biggest achievement with composition was when I entered the Fodens Richardson Competition a couple of years ago and made the final shortlist with a piece called "Modal Sketches".

    I have my own publishing business and am also Artistic Director to Devilish Publishing, which is the business my other half owns.

    I am currently working as a peri teacher to Oldham Music Service, teaching Drum Kit, as well as doing private tuition. (see www.naomimusic.org for more details :p )

    Theres quite a lot to update with this....
    I'm no longer conducting Coppull and Standish.... my MA I'm now doing in Composition, not conducting.... Oldham Music Service has finished... I'm working as a peri teacher to a school in Wigan and start working for Wigan Music Service in the new year....
    I been playing percussion with Blackburn a bit recently but other than that, am not committed to any bands.... thinking of just playing cornet with Eccles Band, who are the closest band to me, seeing as I live in Eccles :p :lol:

    I can also put in here the news that me and my partner James are expecting :) (some of you know already :) ) I'm gonna be a mummy!!!!! :lol: ;-)

    *Doesn't have quite the same ring, does it? ;)
