About Jake

Tenor Trombonist
Cardiff
I am a professional trombonist and brass tutor based in Cardiff and surrounding areas.

I have been playing trombone since I was 8 years old. I graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2015 and during/since then I have been freelancing. I am currently a regular extra with BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Welsh National Opera. I have been on trial with the orchestra's of English National Ballet and Scottish National Ballet. In addition to this, I have worked with Birmingham Ballet, Northern Ballet and Opera North. My main teachers have been Roger Cutts (principal trombone WNO) and Donal Bannister (principal trombone BBC NOW). I play the Sackbut as well as the modern trombone and have been lucky enough to have been tutored by Emily White and Jeremy West. I have enojoyed trips to Cambridge to play Sackbut in ensembles at various colleges in Cambridge including Kings College and St. John's. I currently teach trombone in Cardiff and surrounding areas for students of all abilities.
