The band is really looking forward to working with Sam and towards a very successful partnership.’
Sam is an experienced brass tutor and music teacher in the Wakefield area, and has a wealth of experience both as a player, with bands such as Brighouse & Rastrick, Grimethorpe Colliery and Carlton Main Frickley , and also as Musical Director of the West Yorkshire Police Band and more recently has enjoyed a successful partnership with Old Silkstone band.
Sam’s first official rehearsal will be on Friday 22nd September and his concert debut with the band will be at their Autumn Concert in October.
