Principal Horn - Emma McMorran

Emma McMorran started playing cornet for fun on and off from age 4. At age nine Emma started properly and decided to play the tenor horn.

Under the tutelage of Bill Vail, Emma progressed quickly through Woolston junior and Woolston concert band, and achieved much success in provincial solos, including winning the under 17 air varie in 2014 and 2016.

Emma was selected for the 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 National Secondary Schools Brass Band of New Zealand. In 2015, 2016 and 2017 Emma was also selected for the National Youth Brass Band of New Zealand.

Emma joined Canterbury Brass in 2015, when she was 15 years old and was appointed Principal Horn in 2017.
