We're very happy to announce that David Lyons, Sub Principal Percussionist with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra has agreed to join us as percussion coach. Dave joined the BBC SSO as a permanent member in 1991 after studying with Martin Gibson and Pamela Dow at the RSAMD between 1982 - 1986. Dave has freelanced with many different orchestras including the RSNO, Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and Scottish Chamber Orchestra. He also plays with both the Kinneil and Newtongrange Brass Bands. Dave regularly works with adults and children as part of the BBC SSO's education programme which includes the BBC Ten Pieces. In his spare time Dave is a gadget geek who also likes snooker!
Dave will be coming to help for the first time at our rehearsal on 18 January and will be joining us when he can thereafter.
