Liam is 14 years old and has been playing the trumpet for 5 years. During this time, he has benefited from excellent teaching and numerous musical opportunities.
At his primary school (Brunswick Park Primary), Liam was taught by Kerry Reid who gave him a fantastic start on the instrument. At this time, he also played in a range of wind and jazz ensembles at the East Barnet Music Centre, supported by the excellent musicians there including Kieran McLeod, Ollie Till, Olli Martin and Aidan McAtominey.
When he started at secondary school (Ashmole Academy), Ollie Till took over as Liam’s teacher. Ollie has really inspired Liam and helped him on the next stage of his musical journey.
Liam continued to play throughout the pandemic, taking advantage of virtual playing opportunities including online trumpet lessons and Jess Gillam’s Virtual Scratch Orchestra. As life returned to normal, he had an opportunity to rehearse the Hummel trumpet concerto with the London Medical Orchestra.
Liam currently plays in the Barnet Youth Wind Orchestra and has performed with the band at a range of venues including Duke’s Hall and the Arts Depot. Liam is very excited to perform with the Barnet Symphony Orchestra.
Due to illness, Liam is unable to perform. We are very grateful to Nick Budd for stepping in at the last minute to perform Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto.
