Margaret Rawlings

How long have you been with the band?*

7 months

What inspired you to start playing a brass instrument?

I started playing the French horn when I started secondary school as it was the only instrument available and I wanted to play in the school band.


What do you enjoy the most about brass banding/ music in general?

I enjoy hearing the different timbres of the instruments, especially when the music is well arranged and you can hear the different sections coming through.


What is your favourite time of year with the band and why?

Summer, playing outside concerts... as long as it is not windy or raining... Actually playing with the band at any time of the year is great.


Why did you choose the instrument you currently play?

I had problems with a repetitive strain injury on my fingers so moved to trombone so my fingers were not involved.
