For most people music is a lifelong passion pursued to a variety of levels throughout a lifetime. I love playing and continue to strive to improve and move forward on my musical journey. I have met many extremely talented players over the years who enjoy music as a full or part time vocation and some who follow a totally different path but for whom music is still an essential part of their lives. Whilst great strides have been made in the availability of opportunities for those starting out I feel for those that have invested time and effort into their music often have nowhere to share or further develop their amazing talent.

HOW IT ALL STARTED
I worked with wind ensembles for 12 years at Plymouth University and love the wide variety of tone, colour and texture that can be achieved with this versatile ensemble. After having the privileged opportunity to study conducting with Guy Woolfenden and Laszlo Marosi in 2010 with a symphonic wind band I was quite literally blown away!!! The more I have explored the exciting new repertoire being written for this ensemble the stronger the desire to share and encourage others to explore this amazing genre of music.
Hence the idea to start RWindband was born.
WHERE WE ARE NOW
Five years on and RWindband is a 25+ strong ensemble of extremely talent players from many different backgrounds. We have established an amazing team that continues to amaze me with their enthusiasm to explore a wide variety of challenging and thoroughly enjoyable repertoire. As part of this ensemble you are encouraged and supported to explore your potential to the full. We set out inspired and despite much of the exciting contemporary repertoire being technically challenging we believed that with a well motivate team of players anything is possible. The reality has been so much more; a result of amazing people, commitment and a lot of fun!
