About Me

Joy White MA(Hons)

I started learning Cornet at the age of 12, originally taught by my dad, before joining my local Salvation Army brass band and school ensembles. I  fell in love with playing the Cornet and soon moved onto Trumpet. I joined as many bands and ensembles as I could and took my Grade 8 Trumpet and Grade 6 Piano in my last year of school after achieving high grades in both GCSE and A-Level music.


I first started  teaching in 6th form while helping out my school music teacher run a brass class project, I greatly enjoyed it and knew I wanted to teach as a career. I chose to study Music with Teaching at the University of Chichester and achieved a Upper Second class degree with honors. Following that I continued post graduate studies at Chichester achieving a Masters with Merit in Music Performance. Since University I have enjoyed teaching a range of brass instruments in many settings, offering one-to-one, small group, and whole class tuition to students in both primary and secondary education.

As a performer I was privileged to be the Principle Cornet of the University of Chichester brass band for 3 years. In addition my playing career has included Orchestral work, Concert Bands, Pit Bands and the occasional Wedding.

Throughout my years of playing, both in performing and teaching, I have developed a strong desire to share my love and passion for music and to help children and adults alike, experience the true social and psychological benefits of making music together
