John Kenny: trombonist, teacher, composer, actor, archaeologist
Beechwood Park School, Herts, August 5 - 9 2013 Shrewsbury School, Shropshire, August 12 - 16 2013
John has been a lifelong friend since our days together as students at the RAM. It has been great to follow his career as he diversified into so many different areas. He brings so much to our courses because his skills as a teacher are matched by his extraordinary list of abilities including trombonist, composer, actor, historian and archaeologist. I am delighted he will be joining us for our Shrewsbury course. This is definitely an opportunity that every young trombonist should take as working with John will be a wonderful experience.
