    Hi, I'm Mark and I'm from Australia.

    I spend WAY too much time on here for my own good but I can't help it!

    I am a music student most of the time but I do a fair bit of freelance trumpet playing with the professional orchestras down here.
    I play soprano with my band (Hawthorn) and I have also played principal cornet and flugal with them. Since I have played with them, they have won 2 "A" Grade national titles down here, taking their total to 15 in 30 years.
    I started playing cornet with the Hyde Street Youth Band when I was 11 and started trumpet when I entered a specialist music high school in 1995.

    I have managed to win a few solo comps here and there (including the 2004 National Solo Champion :oops: the first sop to do so)

    I would love to come and have a go at the "big-time" in the UK if someone will take me!!!!!!

    I almost forgot to add that I LOVE my cricket and I love it even more when I can stir up all the pommy tmpers ;-)

    4br have got it wrong, they say you started with Hyde Street Youth when you were 10! :biggrin: Other than that, both your post and the interview make very interesting reading! Nice one, and good luck with the solo comp's! :clap:
