David Thornton was appointed principal euphonium of the Black Dyke Band in 2000. Born in Nottingham in 1978, he began euphonium lessons at the age of eight, and five years later became the first euphonium player to gain a place at Chetham’s School of Music, one of the United Kingdom’s most prestigious institutions for specialist musical education.  Since then his success has earned him many awards, most notably as International Euphonium Player of the Year in 2001. Following the release of his début solo recording, Three Worlds, the British Bandsman Magazine acclaimed it as Solo CD of the Year in 2003.  He is a tutor at the Royal Northern College of Music, the University of Huddersfield and Chetham's School of Music, as well as holding visiting tutor rôles at the Birmingham Conservatoire and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. He is regarded as one of the foremost euphonium players and teachers of his generation and is in constant demand as a performer and clinician throughout the world.
