I am the son of Salvation Army Officers. My place of birth was Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. I came to the U.S. in 1968 when my parents were transferred to New York City. I was taught to play the cornet by my father, Brigadier Hugh Morris. My employment took me to the Washington DC Area in 1985 where I joined the National Capital Band, of which I am still a member. In 1993, I was invited to join the Southern Territorial Band by Dr. Richard Holz where for the next 15 years I occupied the soprano cornet chair. After that time period I spent the next 5 years in the solo cornet section.
