Jayess Newbiggin Brass Band Trombone
Kayleigh Stringer
1st Trombone
Playing experience
I have been playing euphonium for nearly 20 years and trombone for 10 years. I took up trombone because I wanted to learn bass clef and haven't been off the instrument since! I learned to play with the Lincoln Beevor Band and started contesting in 2007 with Blackley Brass Band whilst studying music at the University of Salford. I also enjoyed spells with Greenfield Band and Tyldesley Band, before moving to the North East and joining Jayess Newbiggin. I trained to be a teacher in 2009 and I currently teach music at Cramlington Learning Village. 
Favourite piece
I first played Paul Lovett-Cooper's 'Vitae Aeternum' at university under Howard Evans and have loved it ever since, especially the beautiful middle movement. I am also fond of 'Four Noble Truths' by Philip Sparke as it was the first test piece I won a contest on.
Worst piece
'Singing in the Rain' - I feel like I've played it a million times! 

Favourite banding moment
Without a doubt - winning the North of England regionals with Jayess. I'll never forget the winning moment, an amazing feeling.
