Paul Archibald, the renowned teacher, conductor, trumpet player and Chairman of the London Mozart Players and founder member of the English Brass Academy has become a Development Ambassador advising on the Geneva C Trumpet range as well as a range of new mouthpieces.

Meanwhile, one of the UK's rising brass band stars, Adam Neild, who plays repiano with Black Dyke, and is a second-year trumpet student at the Royal Northern College Music, becomes an ambassador for the Geneva Bb trumpet range.

Joining them is Gaz Rose, who has been associated with Geneva Group for a number of years and is highly respected as a euphonium performer in the Salvation Army movement. He becomes an ambassador for the Glenn Van Looy 'Cardinal' euphonium, having produced a number of videos on the different qualities of the euphonium range.
