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 Lead Trombone Chair is supported by Clive Grant.
