Daniel has been playing the trombone since the age of 8 and has been involved in NYJO’s organisation ever since, starting in the Academy Big Band (formerly NYJO 2) the same year. He has since been awarded a scholarship to begin studying jazz in September at the Royal Academy of Music after completing 4 years in the junior jazz department with Gareth Lockrane and Simon Colam. For the past few years he has been fortunate enough to study with George Hogg.

The Trombone 4 Chair is supported by Richard Desmond.
