Joseph Cook

Joseph Cook was born in County Durham into a musical family. His father was a former principal cornet and his mother a former flugel horn player and now tenor horn player with the Ever Ready Brass Band. He started playing tuba at the local secondary school at the age of 12. With encouragement from his parents and close friends within the Ever Ready Band he joined the Boldon Colliery Brass Band. Within two years he had auditioned and gained entry into the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, at the same time as being accepted to join the Ever Ready Brass Band.

From 1996 to 1999 Joseph was a member of the National Brass Band of Great Britain and for the final two years he was the bands principal tuba player. During that time he achieved such accolades as being twice a National Semi-finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, National Semi-finalist in the Shell London Symphony Orchestra Scholarship Competition, Winner of the 1997 Harry Mortimer Solo Competition and British Open Tuba Champion 2000.

In 1999 Joseph Cook commenced study at the University of Leeds reading Music and Electrical Engineering, and in the May of that year he was asked to join the Black Dyke Band, where he still plays today as principal tuba. With the band he has toured extensively and is often featured as a soloist throughout the United Kingdom and overseas, including the USA, Canada, France, Belgium, Holland, Bermuda and Ireland.
