A WORD FROM CALLUM
My name is Callum Rookes, and I'm a professional musician based in London. I've had an exciting and eclectic career performing at high pressure national, and international state events as a principal tubist of the Band of the Coldstream Guards, as well as high stakes live performances as principal tubist with The Household Division Symphony orchestra where total viewers have ranged from 4 million, to 2 billion people worldwide.

Simultaneously, as a conductor I've been working internationally having recently conducted the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra (USA) whilst in the UK being Principal Conductor of The Brass Foundry, and Musical Director of The London Video Game Orchestra.
