Tom Ridgley

Intermediate MD

At school I started playing the Cornet. In 2010 I joined Besses Boys Band during this time I regularly supported SSBB at various concerts and contests.

Whilst at Besses Boys Band I took over the role of MD of their youth band and in 2016 with Middleton Youth Band formed the North Manchester Youth Band of which I was MD.

I joined The Marple Band as principal Cornet in 2016 where I still currently play.

I have recently completed a music degree  at Salford University and PGCE at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Recently I have had 2 arrangements, A Christmas Triumph & A Christmas Medley published for brass band.
