Musical Director

Sarah Fellowes is the newly appointed Musical Director of BM&W Brass Band.

Sarah’s love of brass banding started when she began learning the Euphonium at the age of nine after listening to the St Keverne Band on a holiday in Cornwall. This lead to a great enthusiasm for music, through school and into further education. After completing a Music degree and PGCE in Secondary Music teaching at The University of Birmingham and Durham University respectively, Sarah embarked on a career as a music teacher. During this time, she spent 6 years as Principal Euphonium at Dronfield Genquip Band, as well as being Musical Director of the Dronfield Training Brass Band from 2011 – 2013. She is currently taking a break from teaching after the birth of her first child, and focusing on her brass band commitments; with a recent move to the second Euphonium seat at Newstead Brass, and the commencement of the Musical Director role at BM&W Band.
