George currently studies trumpet with Paul Beniston and jazz piano with Barry Green. Having been awarded a scholarship to study at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, 19-year old trumpeter/pianist George moved to London in September 2017 from rural Norfolk.
Classically trained, as a member of the National Youth Orchestra 2015 & 2017 he has played in two televised BBC proms and taken part in international tours to Berlin and France as well as playing in many of the UK’s finest concert venues.
George was introduced to jazz by local Norfolk musician Chris Cooper, with whom he studied jazz piano. George then began to perform locally with the Chris Cooper Trio and The Jefford Brothers as well as taking part in summer schools such as the National Youth Jazz Collective.
The Lead Trumpet Chair is supported In Memory of Tony Munro.
