Naomi Jarvis (Bb cornet)

Naomi's love of brass instruments started when she picked out a trombone from a heap of ancient instruments at the Blewbury Brass Band jumble sale and played it (or tried to) behind a shed until she saw stars. She graduated from the junior band as a trumpet player and now plays cornet with Athena Brass Band.

Naomi has a DPhil in experimental nuclear structure physics from the University of York (UK) and is a postdoctoral research associate at Carnegie Mellon University. She is a frequent bike commuter, enjoys mountain biking and loves to play in the snow on skis. She coaches a youth cross-country ski team.
