Suffolk Youth Music 1994-1995

I was a proud member of the saxophone section of Suffolk Youth Wind Band, with tours to Venice and Budapest. Now I work as a musician teaching recorders and sax, specialising in 16thC music, dance and interludes, and performing and teaching renaissance music and dance workshops in schools and festivals around the country. One of my children was a percussionist with both SYWB and SYO, it is fantastic to be able to give something back to such a great organisation.
