6 & 7 Give details of any musical groups you have worked with, and any performance/broadcast of your work.
This is to find out who you play with and where you make music. Have you played in front of school, at a gig, rehearsals, collaborations with other musicians, public performances, club nights, posting of MP3s on websites, appeared on radio or TV? This is your chance to tell us.(Maximum 50 words on each question)

6. National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, Hathern Band, solo performance with/without piano in schools, theatres and churches. WWW.TheMouthpiece.Com (http://www.themouthpiece.com/) scratch band of volunteers players who played to raise funds to Children in Need at the Birmingham BBC event. Recent duet appearance with Daniel Powell of Fame Acadamy fame!

7. I have been involved in recordings of the Hathern Band and the NYBBGB, although not as a soloist. I have recently been interviewed on BBC Radio Leicester prior to a performance of Leicestershire young talent. Think this might have been what clinched the deal? :p :biggrin:

A very well done to both - and yes, Dinie, I'm sure that the mouthpiece.com scratch band was the clincher ;)
