The band was delighted to hear that trombone player David Pitts has been offered a place at the prestigious Royal College of Music in London.
Along with his parents Karen (Solo Horn) and Bob (Solo Cornet), David joined the Charles Church Camberley Band in 2009, and has skilfully balanced commitments with this band, playing for the Hampshire County Youth Band and all his other studies.
David progressed from the cornet to the trombone 10 years ago (once his arms were long enough), and he also plays the piano and ukelele. He starts his four year course next September.
We wish him every success in the future and look forward to welcoming him back from time to time. (Apparently Solo Trombone player Alan Johnson is trying to develop a bigger sound to help fill the gap!!)
