We are delighted to announce that Sean Chandler has joined the bands Cornet section.
Sean hails from Liverpool but has now settled in York, here’s a little bit about him.
“I had a brilliant teacher in Secondary School who encouraged me to join the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain when I was 15. After 5 successful and enjoyable years performing with the band all over the UK I left and went to study at Salford University. I then qualified as a Music teacher at Liverpool Hope University. I’m now a qualified teacher to deaf children through Edinburgh university and lead workshops with Youth Music, Music and the Deaf and of course, Yorkshire Youth & Music.
I’ve had some amazing experiences as a player, with Goldie’s Band at Buckingham Palace, and plenty of other bands and places.”
Richard Wilton our MD commented, ‘Sean’s personality is infectious and the dynamic he has brought to the band-room in such a short space of time is incredible. He brings with him so much quality and strength to the team. I’m absolutely delighted he’s made the decision to join the Sheps family and I’m sure he’ll be an inspiration to over one hundred of our youngest members too.”
We all wish Sean a long, happy and successful time at Sheps.
