Alder Valley Brass would like to warmly welcome and introduce our new Musical Director, Mr Lee Woodward.

Lee is an experienced Musician, who has directed bands since 2007.  His most recent success has been conducting both Saint Sebastian's and Staines Lammas Bands. In 2016, Lee led Saint Sebastian’s to their first ever appearance at the Area Contest second section finals.  He is now looking forward to the challenge of taking Alder Valley Brass forward, building on the strong foundations left by Mr Roger Burke.

Having had lots of experience playing in bands,   Lee joined the Army as a musician, serving firstly with the Band of The Kings Regiment, before successfully auditioning for a post with the Band of The Irish Guards.  Lee was later posted to the Band of The Logistic Corps.  Retirement from the Army came in 2014.

Lee is now looking forward to the challenge of preparing the band for the Area Contest, held in March, as well as a busy summer season. The Band currently have vacancies on bass trombone, cornet & percussion. So if you would like to be part of Alder Valley's exciting future please get in touch with MD Lee Woodward.
