Edward Swindell started playing the trombone at the age of seven. When he was thirteen he was awarded a music scholarship to Trent College.
Edward recently graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where he had studied trombone with Mark Eager, Roger Cutts and Christopher Mowat. It was at music college that Edward first became interested in arranging for brass, writing and performing with a variety of ensembles. He developed this interest under the guidance of the distinguished trombonist Christopher Mowat and the Brass Band Director, Robert Childs.
One of his other musical interests has always been singing, which he pursued keenly as a boy. He started at an early age in church choirs, later as a baritone at college he studied with Gareth Rhys-Davies and sang with the BBC National Chorus of Wales.
At the moment Edward works in the East Midlands as a trombonist, teacher and arranger.
