lotte cLotte Camies (Principal Trombone)

"I have been playing trombone since the age of 11 when I started learning at school. I learnt through a brass band and joined Northfleet Brass at the age of 14 to improve my playing. At the age of 16 I left Northfleet Brass and joined Maidstone Youth Wind Orchestra and my school band Invicta Swing Band. With Invicta Swing Band I travelled to Tokyo, Japan on a school exchange. As well as viewing the sites of Tokyo, I went to school everyday with my host and performed with their school orchestra, an experience I will never forget! I left Maidstone Youth Wind Orchestra and Invicta Swing Band when I finished school at 18 and went back to Northfleet Brass on 2nd Trombone.Recently I felt the need to further improve my playing and my playing experience. I was invited along to a rehearsal at Gravesend Borough Band where I met Bev, that lead me to join the Peninsula Big Band where I now play Principal Trombone.
