Excited

Speaking about the appointment he said: "I'm extremely excited to be appointed. As someone who grew up in brass bands, an organisation like this gives me so much joy and hope for the future generation of musicians and I'm so proud to be a part of it.

I'm already impressed with the current students' progress and I can't wait to see how far the academy and its students will go!"
