I have worked with wind ensembles for over 12 years at the University of Plymouth 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. Launched in May 2011 full details can be found at
