Meet the Team

Steven Greenall, Chief Executive

Hello, I’m Steven. I started playing trombone at the age of 9- and I haven’t put it down since! I’ve always had an interest in music which is why I set up Warwick Music.

In 2007 I was approached by Hugh Rashleigh who had the great idea to create a plastic trombone. He was after some help to develop it and get it into production. After a lot of work, the outcome was pBone- which has become the world’s best-selling trombone. I’m thrilled it’s helped thousands of children and would-be musicians to start their own musical journey- as well as giving fun to professionals and enthusiasts alike.

I’m still an active performer myself and conduct the award-winning Glebe Symphonic Winds, where I met my wife Kate. We now live in Staffordshire, England with our three young children. They haven’t picked up a trombone yet- but we think it’s only a matter of time!

Fun fact: At the age of 5, I wrapped my teddy bear in an electric blanket (to keep him warm of course) and managed to burn down my house. Safe to say, that’s a memory I’m never going to forget!

Matt Pope, Operations Director

Hi, I’m Matt. Music has always been around me my whole life; my dad, granddad and even great grandad were all musicians. The first instrument I played was the piano at the age of 4; I started playing the trumpet aged 13 and haven’t put it down since! I still play and teach now.

I joined Warwick Music Group in 2011, but music has always been a passion and hobby. I don’t know yet if I have passed on my musical talents to my children, although my eldest has just recently joined a choir which he loves, and my middle one doesn’t stop singing all day. As long as I can show them a passion and enthusiasm for music, I’ll be a happy man.

My most unforgettable memory so far was playing my trumpet at the Royal Albert Hall for the first time and meeting and playing with the late Roy Castle! I now live back in the village where I grew up, Measham, with my three children and wife Becca.

Fun Fact: Aside from music, my other interest is cars, I love them!! I have a collection of 14 cars in total- mainly classic British sports cars- and I own a split screen VW campervan.

Chris Fower, Director of Education

Hi, I’m Chris, and I’m Warwick Music Group’s Director of Education. I’ve worked with Warwick Music since 2012 and I’m completely committed to brass instrumental learning and especially first access through pBone and pTrumpet.

I studied bass trombone at Leeds College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, and have made my living playing and teaching for over 25 years! I’m passionate about both performance and education, especially in engaging as many people as possible with the fantastic world of brass playing!

I live in Derbyshire but am a Yorkshire man through and through- as I will tell anyone who asks, or indeed doesn’t ask.

Lucy Leddington-Wright, General Manager

Hi, I’m Lucy! My career in the music industry began in 2003 when I completed my Master's degree in Musicology at Cardiff University, after which I spent a year working for Warwick Music as a graduate. I then moved to London and spent the next 8 years working in various Orchestra Management roles with Southbank Sinfonia and the Royal Opera House, with my last year there as Orchestra Manager. It is great to be back with Warwick Music Group as General Manager, a role I have been in since September 2014. I like to bring effective, confident and capable managerial experience to the team along with a positive attitude!

Fun fact:
During my gap year travelling around Australia and New Zealand in 2004-5, I had various jobs including chamber maid, selling fireworks, promotion girl for the V8 races, music and dance teacher at a Kindergarten, and waitress in a Sydney café! I also exchanged an evening of manning a BBQ at the AJ Hackett bungy site in Cairns for 3 bungy jumps at their full moon party!

Kate Greenall, Social Media Manager

Hi, I'm Kate! I am responsible for all things social media so I love seeing the fun and wacky things our creative followers get up to with their pBones & pTrumpets.

I also have a love for music and after starting to play the clarinet aged 6 went on to study at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and am now principal clarinet of the award-winning Glebe Symphonic Winds.

I enjoy engaging with our customers from all around the world whilst juggling my 3 young children!

Fun fact:
Whilst on a music tour to South Africa I rode an ostrich - not an experience I am in a hurry to repeat!

Becca Pope, Publishing Manager

Hi, I’m Becca and I’m the publishing manager at Warwick Music. Alongside this I’m also an Education Ambassador for the company which involves me going into school and the community delivering projects and encouraging children and adults alike to join our pFamily!

I studied trombone at the Royal Northern College of Music and enjoyed playing professionally with various ensembles, most notably the award winning all-female trombone quartet Bones Apart. I then decided to go into education, training to become a classroom teacher and keeping playing for fun!

I now live in Derbyshire with my husband, my 3 wonderful children and my very dozy brown Labrador.

Fun fact:
I started my musical career at the age of 3 on the… violin!!! But shhh… don’t tell anyone…
