Welcome to the Euphonium Collective pages of Charley Brighton
Willson Euphonium Artist, Brass Teacher & Instrument Service Technician
"If you love some instrument, if you like the sound of it, it's like no other sound. It's really yours. It comes from deep within, and it's something you can always connect with inside. How good can that be? Your music, your sound-it's your friend for life. You can express how you feel, send your self into the larger world. You will always have that voice. That's a pretty powerful thing." Yo-Yo-Ma, Cellist.
"Charley Brighton’s wonderful collection of euphoniums both old and new provided an equally fascinating counterpoint presentation.The amazing array of weird and wonderful designs from Victorian five valve leviathans to micro sized marching instruments showed that in reality there is nothing new under the sun.The somewhat Heath Robinson approach of early inventors and instrument manufacturers to try and sort out tuning and intonation problems bordered between the occasionally brilliant and the more predictable bonkers".4 Barsrest
