Mark Wilkinson

Starting at: $125.00

Developed with Mark Wilkinson, Principal Cornet with the World Famous Foden's Band from England, the Wilkinson cornet mouthpiece has a rounded rim to aid comfort, has great responsiveness in all dynamics, and has been designed to aid the upper register without losing the traditional 'British' cornet sound. 

Mark started playing the cornet aged 6 with his local band Ellenbrook and Boothstown before moving to the Walkden Band and then Besses Boys aged 13 where he stayed for 5 years on Principal Cornet. During this time Mark was also appointed Principal Cornet with the 'National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain.' When he was 18 Mark joined the Wingates Band on Principal Cornet for 2 years before accepting Howard Snells offer to join the Britannia Building Society Band (now Foden's) on Principal Cornet in 1992. During this time he has been privileged to have won every major contest with Foden's including the British Open, National Finals, European Championships, Swiss, French and American Opens as well as numerous victories at the All England Masters Contest, Area Contest and Brass in Concert entertainment competitions. In 2013 Mark was appointed the Band Manager of Foden's.

In 2010 Mark was appointed as 'Visiting Cornet Tutor' at the Royal Northern College of Music, Cornet Tutor at the 'University of Salford' and Cornet/Trumpet Tutor at 'Manchester Metropolitan University.' 

Mark is in demand in the UK and abroad as a cornet soloist, teacher, conductor, clinician and adjudicator (he is a fully credited member of the Association of Brass Band Adjudicators) as well as having a number of solo recordings to his name.

In 2009 Mark was voted by the banding public as the '2009 4barsrest Player of the Year' and in 2013 released his first solo cd 'Milestone'.  Further information on Mark can be viewed via
