Additional Info: Born in Salford in 1989, Mark lives in Whitefield and was brought up in a musical family and began his musical career with Astley youth band at the age of 6. He quickly progressed on to soprano cornet and went on to join the Bolton youth brass band.

On starting high school at Bury Grammar School he developed a keen interest in musicianship and all other areas of music. Whilst moving to Eccles Borough Brass band with his parents, he took up the saxophone, piano and also began to pursue his talent in singing. He secured a place in the National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain, and the Halle youth choir under the direction of James Burton who became a huge influence to him. After some time at Eccles and receiving teaching from the MD at the time Kevin Donaldson, he moved to Besses Boys Band. Soon after this he joined the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain and also made history by becoming the youngest person ever to join the Halle Choir at the age of 16. At this time he also made the move to join the Ashton-Under-Lyne Band.

At the start of his A levels he gained a place at the Junior RNCM to study cornet with Tracey Redfearn and voice with Jeffrey Lawton. Whilst at the Junior RNCM he made the decision to apply for Music College on Trumpet and picked up a trumpet for the first time in his life during his first term at the Junior RNCM. With the help of Tracey Redfearn he quickly progressed and successfully secured a place to study at the RNCM with a scholarship on trumpet. During this time Mark was appointed the Soprano Cornet player with The Fairey Band under the direction of Philip Chalk, and has enjoyed his time there immensely, being involved in various concerts and contests and even abroad trips. Marks musical talent has broadened at a substantial rate, becoming a keen composer, arranger and conductor.

During his time at the Junior RNCM he has enjoyed many concerts with Brass ensemble and Jazz Band, where he has appeared as both a trumpet and vocal soloist. Mark is currently a third year student at the RNCM and aspires to become a professional trumpeter, working as a soloist and orchestral player. During his time at the RNCM, he has been part of various ensembles, such as the Concert Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, Brass ensemble, Brass Band, and many more, playing principal trumpet in each.

This year, Mark is studying for a year in Norway at the Norges Musikkhøgskole, as part of the ERASMUS scheme. His teachers are Ole Edvard Antonsen and Jan Frederik Christiansen.
