Banding has always been a part of Jazz's life; she grew up with her whole family playing in a small village band up in the dales – and whole family really means whole! The band includes her parents, grandad, his brothers and their cousins, their children and even their children – 3 generations of Guy all in one, so as soon as she was able to play, she was in. Starting from playing 3rd Ccornet for 1 or 2 pieces of a concert, she has now sat in every cornet seat possible in the band, including stepping in on Flugel when needed.
In 2011, she was convinced by her brother to try a Tewit Youth Band rehearsal and she never looked back. The band became her family and she will never forget the opportunities she was given and most importantly, the people she met. In 2016 she had to leave the band (too old!) and so joined Ripon, just in time for finals in Cheltenham. She was welcomed with open arms and she's so glad to be part of such a wonderful band.
