LIAM BELFORD & HARRY WHITE
Liam Belford first started playing the trombone in year 5 (aged 9 to 10) and he became a member of Poynton Youth Band at the age of 12 and has played there since progressing to principle trombone. Liam is also principle trombone of Fodens Youth Band and has enjoyed developing his knowledge of the brass band world over his years of playing. Since joining the JRNCM in 2020 Liam has joined the JRNCM big band, and brass band, and has subsequently widened his jazz repertoire playing in many big band and brass band concerts. He has also been heavily involved in the Fallibroome Academy Performing Arts Department since joining in 2021, playing with likeminded musicians in the soul band and senior band.
Harry White showed an interest in piano from a young age often playing during primary school assemblies but it wasn’t until he met an inspirational music teacher at secondary school that his passion for jazz was ignited. He has taken part in various jazz ensembles such as Macclesfield Music Centre Big Band and since joining Fallibroome Sixth Form he has enjoyed playing in their soul band as well as accompanying vocalists and instrumentalists alike.
