Terry started playing at the age of 8 at Attercliffe salvation on Eb Bass. Terry played there till 1984 then before leaving the Salvation Army to pursue his interests in other bands than just Salvation Army ones with his youngest son Robert .
Terry joined Ecclesfield band on Bb Bass before joining Strata who
were called Ireland Alloys at that time in October 1985. Since then the band as progressed from the 3rd section to where we are now going back into the championship section from January 2019 .
There as been many highlights in this time but qualifying for the nationals finals 3 times and wining the 1stsection Yorkshire area in 2018 is certainly some of my best ones.
Terry’s favourite test piece Resurgum is what he describes as a proper test piece with a recognisable tune.
