Conductor - Bandmaster - Director Of Music
The Nottinghamshire Police Band are pleased to announce the appointment of a new Bandmaster and Director Of Music – Geraint Jones F.T.C.L., L.T.C.L., L.W.C.M.D., Cert. Ed.
Geraint started his musical journey early, at the age of 5, when he started to learn to play the Trumpet. As a member, he was involved with the youth music of Glamorgan, and the National Youth Orchestra of Wales, before studying at the Welsh College of Music and Drama on Trumpet.
Without going into much detail of Geraint’s musical history we can certainly say that he has much depth to his musical experience with professional orchestra’s, Championship Section brass bands, youth music groups as section coach as well as musical director, and then as a teacher and educator, having been involved with musical education for 30 years.
In his spare time, Geraint started the Pheonix Concert Band, an adult community Wind Band, in Chesterfield, which he lead for 10 years, so he also has experience of leading a group of volunteers and we look forward to working with him.
