About Adam

In Cambridge, Adam plays 1st Trombone in CUWO & Churchill Jazz, 1st Baritone in City of Cambridge Brass Band, and Solo Euphonium in CUBB.

Adam started learning the trombone at the age of ten, when he joined the Hade Edge Training Band, up at home in West Yorkshire. He quickly progressed through to the Senior Band in time for the 1st Section National Finals, at the age of 14. A few years later he moved up to the principal trombone chair, a position he also held with the Yorkshire Youth Brass Band, and Grimethorpe Youth Band. He also became involved in teaching beginner brass players as part of the Hade Edge Academy of Music and conducted their beginner brass band. Upon commencing his studies at Cambridge University, Adam took up the euphonium as well, playing in the University brass band (CUBB), then as Solo Euphonium with Waterbeach Brass before joining City of Cambridge on 1st Baritone in December 2015. He is also principal trombone in the university wind orchestra and Churchill Jazz Band. For the past three years Adam has played principal trombone of the university symphony orchestra, and has conducted the university brass band for the last two years alongside his twin brother, Matthew.
