About

Martin Smith

Martin was taught to play by his father and they both played in the local Salvation Army Band. At the age of eighteen Martin gave up playing to pursue sporting interests, his career and later on, his family. After a thirty five year absence from playing, he returned to playing and is currently Principal Euphonium with one of the leading bands in the South East. As part of his comeback he passed his ATCL and LTCL, both with distinction in one year and recently passed his Fellowship at Trinity College London (FTCL). Having given up playing for so long he is keen to see how far he can take his musical career and he is very encouraged by the new music written for the solo euphonium for recitals and concertos with orchestras. He has an ever growing number of public recitals in the UK and abroad.
