WWO JM outdoor 2webJeremy Morrish has been involved in music from an early age thanks to his Salvation Army upbringing and his father who played euphonium in the RAF Central Band.  Jeremy first played the cornet aged 5 and over the next few years had the opportunity to try out several instruments which his father brought home while taking the bandmaster's course.  Soon Jeremy became keen to be a multiple instrumentalist.

By the age of 10 Jeremy was playing in several wind bands and orchestras on cornet, trombone, euphonium and violin and also learned the piano.  At this age he was awarded a scholarship with Bucks County Music Services, which gave him great opportunities at the local High Wycombe Music Centre to study instruments, theory and composition, as well as join in their wind bands and orchestras.

Combining his passions of horses and music, on leaving school Jeremy joined the band of H.M. Life Guards, part of the Household Cavalry.  While attending the Army's Military School of Music at Kneller Hall, Jeremy also gained the A.R.C.M. performer's diploma on Euphonium at the Royal College of Music, London.

While in the Guards Jeremy played in many Army engagements at the Royal Tournament, Trooping the Colour and Investitures at Buckingham Palace.

Since leaving the Guards with 15 years' service Jeremy has enjoyed teaching and conducting, being appointed Musical Director of Woking Wind Orchestra in 2007.
