About ...

I'm 66 years old, 5' 2" tall short, overweight and unfit! I'm retired now but used to work as a peripatetic music tutor, teaching brass and woodwind to (mainly) primary school children.  I love music and play tenor horn (my principal instrument), cornet, trumpet, flute, alto sax, clarinet and recorders.  I've always wanted to play the piano so have decided it's now or never and have started having piano lessons. I used to play in a local brass band and have recently joined a local choir.
