About the Host

Mark Yeldham

Host

Here's a little bit about me....

I love music! I pretty much live and breathe music, and I love to share my passion for music with others.

I'm a musician, a piano and keyboard teacher, a primary school music teacher at Lee Chapel Primary School, and of course a podcaster! Yay!

I listen to all types from Classical right through to Soul, Motown, Rock, Funk and the latest chart music.

I was classically trained through the music grades in Piano and Trumpet, and my favourite instrument to play is piano and keyboards, but I also enjoy playing Trumpet, Guitar (badly), Ukulele (not as badly as I play guitar) and of course being a music teacher I play recorder, glockenspiel and pretty much any thing that you can make a noise with and annoy the neighbours!
