Jenny started banding when she was around 14 years old, playing cornet with Fairfield (Buxton) Band. She quickly moved to baritone before deciding tenor horn was her preferred seat and has been there ever since!
At 18 she moved to Yorkshire to study music and for a while full time banding took a backseat as she was a first study flautist! She soon realised the error of her ways and once settled in her job as a special needs teacher, she joined Ripon City and loves it!
She is a bit of a band geek and was a member of the first brass band to complete a half marathon, marching and playing the entire route of the Great North Run - an amazing experience (but not one she intends to repeat anytime soon!).
