Former principal cornet of the Foresters band (Leicestershire) and solo cornet with the NYBBGB. Ex Roger Webster student and very successful former principal cornet of Youth Brass 2000 having won european and british youth solo titles. Just finished his post grad in performance (trumpet I believe) at the royal college and is currently conducting Foresters Brass. Excellent player.
I have it on v.good authority that both Pete Collins and Rob Gill have played with Dyke recently, with their fourth man vacancy in mind. But the position has been successfully filled within the band by one of their second cornet players. ?? Can anyone confirm / deny ??
