Sounds Of Brass
Semi retired Euphonium player and Musical Director. Bringing you the Best Of Brass Band Music! Having been born in a family deeply involved in the Brass Band movement due to My late Father Derek Johnston, who was a well respected Musical Director, I started playing the Cornet at the age of 5, and by the time I was 6, self – taught. I won my first Solo medal.
I was brought up in my early years in the Yorkshire and Derbyshire area, and was a member of several Mineworkers Brass Bands, as my father was a Musical Director and kept moving to better bands. I played with such Bands as Cresswell Colliery, Rossington Colliery, Dinnington Colliery, Thurcroft Colliery.
