Darcy began playing the trumpet in his primary school band program, and has been hooked on music ever since.
Growing up in Launceston, Tasmania, Darcy studied with Mark Bain and Yoram Levy of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, both of whom inspired him to further pursue his musical aspirations. Darcy has completed a Bachelor of Music at UTAS under the tutelage of Yoram Levy.
In 2018 he participated in the Masterclasses in Contemporary Music Studies in Lucerne, Switzerland, placed second in the International Trumpet Guild Solo Competition in San Antonio (USA), and performed as a casual musician with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.
Darcy is currently training with Yoram Levy and Tristram Williams at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM).
IN DARCY'S WORDS
“I was a classical guitarist and performed in my Trio around Tasmania in high school. I have always been involved with music since I was very young. Through a music degree, I decided to turn my passion into a commitment.”
